Our Story & Our Team

Our team♡

Cameron Imai — the founder of Be Japanese –created this unique tour company in 2014, with the hope of creating a new kind of tour; one that would focus heavily on fashion and art. She broke new ground in the tourism industry in Tokyo and was able to carve out a much-wanted service for fashion and art lovers. International guests that have participated in Be Japanese’s one- of -a-kind tours really loved their unique experience and the fact that their guides was able to introduce them to new places that are a little off the beaten track. She really wanted to break new ground and create special tours focusing on fashion and art since then.
