It was a special experience to join this virtual tour together with some other Ghibli fans and our tour guide Yoshi-san. I got to learn new things about Ghibli that I didn't know from before, and to explore many interesting places in Japan that have now been added to my wish list. A very enjoyable tour, thank you!!

This was my first ever Virtual Tour and I must say, I enjoyed it! Not only was it very informative, I really like the fact that I get to interact with bunch of other people in the tour as well. It's a great way to travel in the comfort of your quarantine home and meet new people! The virtual tour guide Yosshi san was the perfect guide for the tour. She speaks perfect English and knows how to make the tour more interesting. I think the tour can be enjoyed not only by Ghibli Movie fans, but also by anyone. I've lived in Japan for more than 2 years now and traveled 32 prefectures but still, i did not know most of the locations mentioned in the tour. Now I just had added bunch of other places in my to-visit list. In the midst of the pandemic, this virtual tour is a great way to escape and de-stress. I'd like to thank Japan Wonder Travel for giving us this opportunity to travel Japan in a brand new way. Kudos! @kynesas

Due to the current sanitary situation, this virtual tour is a very good and original opportunity to visit Japan. As a Ghibli movies' fan, I found very interesting to see the landscapes, the architectures, and the cities that inspired my favourite movies. Yoshiko speaks perfectly English and French, and has actually been to many of the places that she introduces in the tour. Plus she gives additional information on the locations (food, history, etc), it made me want to visit them and I can't wait to go to Japan. I highly recommand this tour, thank you Yoshiko!

What a charming little virtual tour around Japan. Kudos to the team for using the technology to find a new way to share. I really loved seeing some of these films come to life in the setting that inspired their creation! It was wonderful (and a special experience) to connect with other smiling faces around the world who all share a love for Ghibli!

Yosshi was so kind and knowledgeable about Ghibli animations. Although there were some hiccups along the way, she managed it well. The tour was also very interactive, those who're interested in Ghibli movies will have a ton of fun!
