Nostalgic Japan

Nostalgic Japan is a web magazine, travel guide, and community website for those who love nostalgic atmosphere in good old days of Japan.


  • Web Magazine

This website is to introduce you the historical background and cultural tradition of Japan. The team is all living in the countryside of Japan and will convey not only just basic information, but also in-depth contents in rural Japan which’ve never been focused on before. Here you will be able to deepen your knowledge of Japanese culture pleasantly.

  • Travel Guide

It’s very hard to find a lot of information about rural areas when you make plans to travel around the rural areas of Japan. It’s because of the language boundary and the fact that Japanese people are not good at conveying things about themselves.

In this web magazine, we focus on various spots in rural areas and share that useful information to help you to make your trip much more gratifying and extraordinary.

  • Small Community

This is not only just a travel guide or a web magazine. We would like to develop this website into a small community for those who love mother nature, traditional culture, and a nostalgic atmosphere.

What made you take an interest in Japan might be manga, video games, or highly advanced technology. Those things just emerged within the last 50 years or so. The essence of Japan is hidden in a traditional culture thats been cultivated for more than 2000 years and of which is the way of life with mother nature.

In rural Japan, there’s a lot of archetypal sceneries and buildings which have never been focused before. You can touch the subtleness and refine things of Japanese traditional culture here.


As Support Activities for the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami

We’d like to contribute the promotion of Tohoku tourism by conveying its attraction in our web magazines. Because of the negative impact of the earthquake and tsunami and the characteristics of people inTohoku as not good at conveying things, many foreign tourists tend to avoid to visit Tohoku areas. Curreently our contents of Nostalgic Japan is mainly based on Niigata Pref where we live, but we’ll spread the areas to cover in Tohoku more.
