Nextaroma is my brainchild, Lionel Dersot, a French national in Tokyo since 1985.
Food, terroir, comfort, the slow life and above all people encounters are my raison d'être when on a trip. Nextaroma is the sharing of this concept. Uncompromising custom only itineraries designed with real knowledge of scouted destinations and people, and +30 years of living in Japan. I would never show you around a destinations I don't like.
My expert territories are the wonderful Western green and huge countryside of Tokyo that allows to disengage from the urban grind for a day of discovery, relaxation and beauty. I am also much into citrus growing regions starting with Kôchi prefecture and the darling yuzu. Japan is a citrus paradise. Citrus is a very nice entry point into rural Japan.
I am a certified tour manager at the Japan Tourism Agency, license number 13-16-0179.

A philosophy of travel
In an industry where copycatting and usage of the words "unique" and "exclusive" are pandemic, Nextaroma is never inspired by what travel agencies deliver, nor by any guidebooks diktats, nor even by the media obsession forcing travelers with the cool de rigueur to focus on compulsory destinations and experiences. We totally exclude the commodified and generic, because we don't travel that way either. Our travel philosophy in action is inspired by the world of villégiature (villeggiatura in Italian) and encounters, even when mobility - no stamp rally tour! - is part of the plans. What only matters by the end of a single day, or a string of lovely days like pearls is your contentment in beauty, and the various ways nurturing time we designed is spent by you.
Nextaroma is also supported by Martin Esposito in Europe for advising at large, communication and strategy.
Martin is a bilingual language specialist providing support to individuals and organizations wishing their content to be fully localized and come to perfect fruition. The advice he provides is not industry-specific, but pertains rather to language and cultural form, be it British English or Italian. His service offering is completed through a range of interpreting and text creation and management ability.
