-Exploring a New Japan Together-
A Wonderful Day (AWD) is a celebratory service aimed at affluent visitors to Japan in an era where ownership is shifting to shared experiences. Through the novel approach of sharing high-value mobility services, we aim to make Japan's tourism an experience of freedom and elegance.
Following the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tokyo is bustling with foreign tourists, thanks to favorable foreign exchange rates. Hotel prices have surged by three to five times. However, there are still numerous tranquil destinations in the suburbs offering affordable and serene experiences. World heritage sites, hot springs, and the beauty of changing seasons are all within easy reach. We encourage you to visit and explore these places.
Our primary mission is to connect Tokyo with its surrounding tourist destinations within a 200-kilometer radius, resolving transportation challenges. Furthermore, by utilizing high-value mobility options such as classic cars, supercars, pleasure boats, superyachts, and helicopters, we aim to turn the stress of travel into exciting and unforgettable experiences. Additionally, we seek to promote the shared use of assets, including membership-based lodgings and vacation homes, alongside luxury hotels and traditional inns. Our goal is to provide our customers with special options that allow them to enjoy Japan with the freedom and elegance of their own homeland.
While AWD's services operate on a club membership and referral basis, this choice reflects our emphasis on connecting people and building new communities with shared values. Simultaneously, we aspire to contribute to the sustainable economic ecosystem surrounding Japan's alternative investment assets.
The ultimate vision for AWD is to become a community of high-value alternative assets representing Asia. Through this community, we aspire to showcase the charm of Japan and Asia to the world. This is my dream.
In our journey towards experiencing A Wonderful Day together, we walk hand in hand with our customers, contributing to the formation of new communities and ecosystems. Our mission is to spread the allure of Japan and Asia worldwide. Your smiles are our greatest success and the driving force behind our daily efforts.
Thank you for your support!
