Captivated by Japanese culture, Vincent traveled to Japan to further his university education. He spent several years working across the archipelago, living successively in Tokyo, then near the small island of Enoshima (Fujisawa), and finally in Shikoku.

Ever since, he regularly returns to Japan to explore new locations and indulge in the local cuisine. Above all, he loves matsuri (traditional festivals), particularly the renowned Awa Odori festival. Bring up Japan in conversation, and he can talk endlessly about it!

He works at the agency in Paris.

Virginie is a Japan enthusiast who lived in Tokyo. It was through J-Pop that she fell in love with the country and its language. Since then, she has traveled extensively. Her favorite spot? The Nakano district in Tokyo, known for its vintage vibe and popular restaurants.

She'll likely suggest that you unwind in the city's sentō (public baths) or onsen (hot springs)! One of her favorites is Ganiba Onsen, a bath nestled in nature in Akita Prefecture. If you're looking to explore the charm of the countryside and small Japanese villages, she's the one to ask!

She works at the agency in Paris.

Laetitia fell in love with Japan twice over: first through its pop culture, and then during her travels, which touched her with their harmony and tranquility.

Having spent a year living in Oita as part of a student exchange program, she had the opportunity to experience everyday Japanese life and began practicing yosakoi, a folk Japanese dance from Kochi. Her philosophy? Observe and emulate the Japanese for an authentic immersion.

She works at the agency in Paris.
