About us

Who are we?

We are a travel platform based in Tokyo, focused on diversifying tourism options in Japan. By giving opportunities for guides and travelers to create their own itineraries, we hope to not only promote less visited destinations, but also create more options for travelers within the Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka area. In addition, by directly connecting travelers and guides, we hope to create opportunities for all guides who want to show the beauty of Japan to foreign travelers.

The Japan you don't have to queue for

Japan boasts beautiful nature and numerous historical destinations throughout the country. You can visit the still-preserved Western architecture in port cities like Hakodate, Nagasaki, the samurai route in Nakasendo, Japan's most sacred Shinto shrine in Mie, sacred mountains like the Kii Mountains in Wakayama, Gassho-zukuri villages in Ainokura, the cinematic Ginzan Onsen in Yamagata, to name just a few.

Our hope is that by enabling guides and travelers to create itineraries freely, more travelers will have the opportunity to visit these beautiful places, which may be familiar to people living in Japan, but less so to travelers visiting from abroad.


Book local guides

Find your ideal itinerary and book a guide to accompany you. By providing a flexible platform for guides to create their own itineraries and easily reach travelers, we hope to offer a more personal and local experience. Non-licensed guides are also allowed to guide in Japan. At dekitabi, we want to open our platform to anyone who wants to welcome foreigners and teach them a bit of their local history and culture.
