What Do These Brands Have in Common?


They’ve all worked with Japan Starts Here to increase their influence, recognition and visibility, leveraging the personality, reputation and industry-leading content of Robert Schrader—that’s me!—to reach a growing community of energetic, intelligent travelers to Japan. And they’ve all been amazed by the quality of work, scale of results and incredibly fast turn-around times involved in working with Japan Starts Here!


Why Should You Work With Me?

My growing audience comes from the largest, wealthiest markets in the world, and are educated, affluent, independent travelers. Plus, my travel writing and photography is highly syndicated in the global travel media—the site is only the beginning!

Before he left office, President Obama and the White House recognized me as one of America’s Top 100 Travel Influencers, and I’ve contributed to publications such as, Business Insider, CNN Travel and The Huffington Post, to name just a few.


How Can You Work With Me?

Send Me to Japan

Fly me to your city, prefecture or hotel and I’ll blog about it, Instagram about it, whatever you want. I won’t shut up—and that’s a very good thing, since so many people listen when I speak.
