Providing a valuable new experience – “to lodge at a temple”


WAQOO Agency Co., Ltd. operates a business in cooperation with WAQOO Co., Ltd. that provides users with the ability to casually and easily “lodge at a temple,” which used to have a high bar of entry. We provide users with opportunities to personally experience Japanese culture and provide temples and shrines with opportunities to make use of tangible and intangible properties, and we engage in “temple lodging revitalization projects,” which lead to the discovery of new value.

We aim to contribute to the development of the Japanese economy and regional revitalization by promoting tourists to visit and lodge through appropriately responding to domestic and foreign demand for accommodations while securing proper operation by all companies and personnel involved with TERAHAKU’s temporary lodging at temple lodgings.
