Japan is full of amazing traditional cultures. From the arts to washoku cuisine, craftsmanship, and architecture, many aspects of life in all regions of Japan have been passed down for generations. Some customs, however, are disappearing, prompting people to take action to try to preserve these valuable traditions. On the other hand, contemporary anime and manga also represent powerful parts of Japanese culture.
Respecting traditions. Adapting to the new.
Both are valuable, and both are part of Japan’s culture.
MATCHA works to reach people around the world through photos and writing based on our real experiences and face-to-face conversations with people throughout every region of Japan. We strive to create content that conveys the essence of Japanese culture in an interesting and inspiring way, so that more people will visit and experience this country for themselves.
We believe one of the most memorable experiences of travel is the people you meet.
