About Us

What we are
aiming for

We aim for DX by building and utilizing a platform for industries that connect people who have not met and realize a world full of WOW. .However, we do not simply organize the database and create a foundation, but by incorporating the element of "people" into it, we aim to build a new industry and achieve IX (Industrial Transformation).

  • Regional x Inbound
    We aim to revitalize the region through economic and cultural exchange by having tourists know the charm of not only urban areas but also rural areas and having them actually go.
  • Primary Industry × Tourism Industry
    By creating a new relationship between producers and consumers, we will build a fan community, and based on that community, we will present new possibilities to the primary industry. Not only in Japan, but also dissemination to the world. We draw out the infinite possibilities of the primary industry one by one.
  • Establishment of guide industry
    We believe that guides centered on licensed guides are important as “people” who connect the region and the world. We will establish guides as an industry and realize a new form of regional revitalization where people meet.

Connecting people
who have never met
and realizing a world
full of WOW

"WOW" is a word that comes out when you have an experience that exceeds your thoughts and imagination. In today's world where we can acquire all sorts of information, the value of personal information is increasing, and the sense of trust is increasing.

We believe that one of the most “WOW” opportunities is travel. We aim to create a “world full of WOW” where you can encounter good local guides, activities that can be provided, and WOW U.
