The Japan Experience Team

 

The founder

Claude Saulière founded Vivre le Japon and has run it since 1981.




“Discovering a country, especially Japan, so comparable to ours and yet so different, does not just mean looking at how people lived three centuries ago, but how they live today, their daily life. To do this, you need to be able to stroll around, observe things, meet people, lose yourself...”
