A good story enchants History.

Sustainable tourism development advisor & bubbly and passionate French-speaking guide

My name is Julie Baud, I am a guide specializing in traditional Japanese crafts. Originally a graduate of Bookbinding and Gilding Arts, I reoriented myself towards tourism in order to combine my passion for crafts and Japan.

My mission is to convey to you the love I have for the inhabitants and their know-how, in visits that are both enriching and entertaining. I offer you a human Japan, far from the beaten tracks, but close to the locals and their daily lives.


Based in the Nagoya region since 2012, over the years I have developed a strong relationship with several masters and various traditional trades in this rich and yet little-known region.

More than just a guide, I am a storyteller.
Join me for a unique adventure, full of laughter and unforgettable discoveries. Alongside me, explore the hidden treasures of Nagoya and its region, while letting yourself be enchanted by the ancestral traditions and creativity of Japanese artisans.

Your custom made visit


Because the discovery of craftsmanship is not limited to visiting a workshop, I create a completely personalized tour for each request. Your private accompaniment combines a highlight of communication and an activity with an artisan, a visit to local attractions linked to the theme of your day and pieces of history chosen with humor, all enhanced by delicious gourmet and local breaks.

Typical course of a tailor-made day:
- Pick up directly from your Hotel.

- Transportation to the chosen location (car with driver available)

- Guided tour of the surroundings in order to obtain a global understanding of the place and the chosen craftsmanship.

- Breakfast in a local restaurant.

- Private meeting with a Japanese craftsman and manufacturing activity.

- Coffee break in a local business.

- Return to your hotel.


“Julie offered us a photo activity in a wedding kimono. We were delighted. We were with our one and a half year old son. Julie provided both the translation, the explanations and also the welcome entertainment with our son (not always very patient...). The exchanges with the team and the photographer were fluid, because the language barrier had been erased thanks to Julie. His good humor allowed us to de-stress for a successful afternoon and magnificent souvenir photos of this moment. »
