About us

Toppan Profound Tourism is a new approach to tourism brought to you by Toppan Printing and Toppan Travel Service.

Imagine-a wooden temple structure that has stood for over 1,200 years. A painted folding screen that conveys the bustling city sounds of the Middle Ages into the present. The majestic form of a castle no longer visible today. Cultural assets such as these are windows that allow you to understand the aesthetics, techniques, philosophies, and even the spirit of Japan preserved within Japanese culture with rich history.

Through encounters with deeply valuable sites and tradition-bearers, we propose profound travel to experience the authentic sides of Japan.
