As the amount of people that is coming to Japan is increasing year by year, we want the visitors to be able to experience all that Japan has to offer.

With the Olympics being held in Tokyo next year, we see this as being an amazing opportunity to bring foreign visitors to an area that is not so well known in Tokyo but is unforgettable - Ueno! By creating this tour experience, we wish to create a chance for those foreigners to find out more about this amazing area, found just a few minutes from Asakusa and Sky Tree, and to help them discover what an amazing area Ueno is!

We have designed this tour not from just the perspective of Japanese people, but also taken into consideration the things and experiences that foreign visitors wish to see and do! From the reactions so far that we have received the tours are perfect for tourists!

In order for us to be able to create such an experience and to help let foreign tourist know about this tour we need the money to be able to promote to those that will visit Japan! We hope that you can help us by backing and supporting this project!

With our group [Ueno Joshi], our main aim is to bring our tour guests in touch with the people, allowing for both the guides and the tourists to be able to get to know each other, allowing for both parties to grow as people, and to experience a different point of view.

Up until a few years ago, I wasn’t particularly fond of travelling.

We have many chances in Japan to experience travelling, from school trips, to graduation trips and even trips with our family, but for the most part these trips weren’t exactly exciting for me. More than anything, I loved the planning that went into the trip.

Looking at the beautiful views, or choosing from the selection of foods or sights to try out. This was what I loved the most when it came to travel.

But things changed when I turned 20 and decided to try out a different kind of travel. One that looks at the idea of connecting with people. I found that being able to go to a new place and connect with people created and changed the whole experience of travel for me.

From there things changed. I found that it could be a path never walked or one that has been worn down, a flourishing shop or a little run down shack, it’s the people you meet on the trip that makes it interesting.

I realised from that point on, that in unfamiliar places, it’s not the food, the scenery or experiences but the people that makes the best tourist attraction!

Using this ideal, we created Ueno Joshi, a tour where we put stock into creating these connections with people.

By creating these meetings in an unfamiliar setting, we can make a tour that is unforgettable and unique!

Through our tours, we plan to be able to offer the chance for visitors to get to know Japanese people and to communicate with them on a personal level. With this, it means that a large amount of the value of our tours will come from our guides and not the places and food you try.

With this in mind, the guides while guiding you around must see spots, the guides will tell you about not just history, but about the people and the lifestyles of the people in the area.

Above this though, we want to put a lot of value on the time you get to communicate with the guides, with a chance to be able to go for dinner and have the chance to speak and get to know each other.

We want to be able to tell our guests what charms both Japan and its people have!

And with guides that are well known for being a master of traditional Japanese dance, or for having a large amount of knowledge of Japanese and Western architecture or a guide that is a kimono model, we have a small but amazing group of guides that will be able to accompany you and explain a lot about Japan from their own wealth of personal knowledge.

When you finish your tour with us, we wish for you to leave having a sense of feeling you’ve met great representatives of Japanese people.

We need people that share the same vision and find the idea interesting to get behind it.

When it comes to making a tour, a whole host of people could probably make a decent tour, but the tours that we wish to make are unique we think and with our backgrounds and knowledge, only we can do it.

By not just sharing in our vision and taking the tour, but also joining in the group and helping contribute to improving our service, we think that we can create a truly amazing tour group.

We will invite you to a special Facebook group, where together we can come up with tours that helps to create even more meaningful connections between our users and ourselves as well as let us become even more knowledgeable about a foreigners perspective and tune our program to be even better.

As the people that join the group will have a higher quality of information compared to a group that you can freely participate in, we think that the tour would become even better with each person that joins.

With that, those that back the project will help us to carry on with the tours as well as promote the tours to others meaning even more people get to experience a unique new way of guided tours.

The money raised will be used in several ways.
We hope to use a portion of the money to help promote the tours that we offer both online and offline.
This will be in the way of pamphlets and flyers as well as creating a special site for those to book.
We will also use a portion of the money to help run the tours, helping with some of the costs that we incur when holding the tours.

For the returns of this project, we are looking at giving access to a closed group that we run on Facebook. While this may not seem like much at first, we wish to make it a place we hope everyone can come together and create a tour that will be considered the perfect tour!

One of the big differences that this community page will have is the fact that the group will not just be for the creation of the tour, but also we will try to support your trip as much as we can via this page. When you come to Japan, we will help with what hotel to stay in, which shops to go to, which restaurants are the best! What's more all those that visit the group page will be able to see this information and learn more about Tokyo!

With this group being valid for 10 months, that means for just 5000 Yen, it will only be 500 yen a month for a comprehensive collection of information about Tokyo! As we approach the 2020 Olympics, you can be safe in the knowledge that you have the support of locals behind you!

As well as this, by bringing all the knowledge of everyone together online, we aim to create a tour that will let those that come for the Olympics enjoy their time even more!





This project isn’t just about raising money.
We want to find people that can understand our cause and get behind our cause.

Won’t you help make an amazing unique tour that we hope will encompass everything that a tourist would wish?
It doesn’t matter if it’s just one person or many become interested in this project we would be extremely grateful for anyone that helps support this project.

Born 14/6/1993 in Okayama Prefecture 
Representative for Watabi

At 20, after experiencing a travel event, she became fascinated with the idea and value of meeting those that are travelling, and started looking at work in that field. She has held a total of 5 different events bringing tourists from all over Japan to a traditional Japanese hotel and hosting a travel experience. With an aim and vision of trying to convey the charms and appeals of Japan to those that come to watch the Olympics that are held in 2020 in Tokyo, she has looked into a variety of different ways to do so. She started this company in June 2019 with the aim of creating a service that will help her connect more with people. With this, she has helped to create Ueno Joshi, a service that looks to give users an amazing tour experience by having local Japanese girls guide tourists around the Ueno area.
