Odigo is a trip planner and sharing platform. More often than not, when you live and work in Japan you become ‘the expert’ to your friends and family back home. You love Japan and you want to help plan a great trip for your visitors but it can be difficult.

Odigo makes trip planning easy and fun: we provide a platform that includes off the beaten track places described in reviews provided by our online community, creates a map to help with your planning, and an itinerary to keep track of the spots you’ve chosen.

Our content is being built through a community of writers, experts, artists and photographers, sharing local knowledge about places and experiences they love. Finding those hidden gems can be tough in a country like Japan. Odigo can help you to visit your first ramen shop, teach you how to order, what to ask for, how to pay, and anything else you might need to know. All of this information is provided by our passionate Odigo community.

Another great feature of Odigo is that you can add more than one traveller to help plan your trip, they can add or edit spots to your itinerary, and while you’re on holiday you can share your trip with friends and family back home by using the Odigo trip diary to share photos and reviews. If you join our community of experts when you’re back home, the trip that you’ve just been on can be shared back into Odigo for other people to use as the basis for their future trip to Japan, thus the community of travellers sharing their experience grows with each journey.
