About the business | Expecting attention from the new Taiga drama [Image 1
The currently planned “Zojoji VR 360 degree virtual tour” is a tour that can be enjoyed remotely. It is a project that has both a story that attracts people’s interest and an educational aspect that stimulates intellectual curiosity. I was.
The Daihonzan Zojoji (Zojoji) is a temple in Minato Ward with a history of 600 years. It has a deep connection with the Tokugawa shogunate and attracts many people.
It is a tourist attraction. We will be working on the first virtual tour of Zojoji Temple to fully convey its charm. In addition, the new Taiga drama “Dosuru Ieyasu”, which will begin in 2023, is expected to increase interest in Zojoji Temple as well as interest in the Tokugawa family, and many potential customers are expected.
The actual shooting is scheduled for January 2023.

The virtual tours produced by SeiRogai, which specializes in video production, use the latest technologies such as VR, and focus on storytelling and education.

A project that considers people’s mindfulness and SDGs
This business is very passionate about “spreading the philosophy of mindness and well-being”, which is also connected to our corporate philosophy. Through this project, I would like to disseminate and disseminate the ideas and philosophy that lead to the teachings of Buddhism both domestically and internationally.
In addition, the demand for virtual tours has increased in the post-corona era, and it has been devised to have a positive impact on society from the perspective of the SDGs.
■ Eco-friendly sightseeing tour
This is a new eco-friendly style of tourism that leads to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions and waste by reducing physical movement. Through the promotion of eco-tourism and green tourism using VR tours, we aim to raise awareness of “spirit to protect nature” and “spirit to coexist with nature” with an eye on environmental protection and climate change countermeasures.
We believe that demand for DX sightseeing virtual tours that contribute to the SDGs will increase as awareness of environmental protection increases.
■ Equitable educational and entertainment opportunities for many people Because it is a virtual tour that allows remote communication, it is expected that elderly people and people with disabilities who have difficulty traveling to distant places will participate in the tour and expand their playing field. Even for those who find it difficult to move in the post-corona world, we can provide an experience that feels as if you are traveling locally.
In addition, we aim to contribute to the expansion of access to education by allowing more people to enjoy educational content. We are looking for partners and sponsors! Virtual tours using innovative technology can be appealed both inside and outside of Japan The “Zojoji VR 360 degree virtual tour”, which is currently in the planning stage, is looking for partners and sponsors. This is a very rare opportunity to combine the old and new of Zojoji, a historic landmark, and the latest VR virtual tour. For partners and sponsors, the first-ever virtual tour of Zojoji will be a once-in-a-lifetime branding and PR opportunity to promote your company both domestically and internationally.
