Over the last few years, we have worked with many clients on their web projects.  As can be seen from some of the samples of our work below, we have undertaken a large number of travel/tourism related websites for travel organizations, hotels and ski resorts both in Japan and the UK.  Our most recent large-scale UK projects are the official Japanese-language site for Cheshire County Council and the Japanese version of "Visit Liverpool", both of which were launched in September 2004.

The samples on this page range from simple functional sites to more complex, database-driven interactive sites.

  In order to properly view Japanese-language sites, your computer must have the ability to display Japanese fonts.  If you do not have this facility installed, the Japanese-language sites may not display correctly on your computer - this is not a design flaw.  (If you wish to install Japanese fonts on your computer, you can do so using free Microsoft software - more information can be found here.)
  We have provided links to most of the online projects below.  However, please note that sites may have been modified and content added/edited by the client since the project initially went online.

Recently Completed Projects (including Cheshire County Council & Visit Liverpool)
