Kammui Inc. launches Kammui.com, a 'matching platform', to connect people with Japan’s leading guides for unique and high quality experiences in nature.
Across all ages, there is an inherent desire to lead healthier, richer lives full of new experiences. The source of a richer, healthier life is outdoors, but for many people just getting outdoors and participating in new activities is a leap.
Kammui.com will lean into digital trends and social media--via compelling visual design, media content, and friendly tech--to inspire people to make this leap of getting more engaged in the outdoors.
A New Way to Experience Nature
Kammui.com is partnering with Japan’s leading guides and operators to offer premium experiences in nature for beginners to the more advanced. Activities include yoga & meditation, farm experiences, fishing, surfing & diving, mountain biking, rock climbing, SUP, kayaking & canoeing, hiking & trekking, and nature-based “escapes”.
Kammui.com showcases partner guides and operators, highlighting their backgrounds, certifications, and views on nature to help each person find a guide and/or experience which is the best match for them.
Kammui.com also organises experiences through “Kammui Styles” to help people easily explore the world of Kammui. Styles include categories such as “mindfulness”, “plants and wildlife”, “family friendly” and “challenging” which allow people to find the exact kind of experience they are looking for.
In addition, Kammui.com incorporates a media function, “Stories”, to help educate and inspire people on the value of the outdoors. Stories will include everything from introductory articles on specific outdoor activities and how-to guides to thought pieces on nature from well-known personalities and video introductions to selected guides. The goal is to inspire people to incorporate unique outdoor experiences as a regular part of their lives.
