Folks everywhere in the world had huge plans to go to, discover and expertise Tokyo this summer time. After which, all these plans had been cancelled. Now, though folks can’t get to Tokyo on a airplane, they’re going by Microsoft Groups.

Within the newest marketing campaign from Microsoft Groups, we see how a gaggle of people that had their journeys to Japan cancelled get a private, native and off-the-beaten-path tour round Tokyo by individuals who stay there, all by Groups.

We see components of town they didn’t plan to see, studying traditions they didn’t learn about, and changing into pals with folks they might have by no means met, just about by Microsoft Groups. They go to an underground izakaya, get an ikebana lesson, wander round a cat café, and uncover many extra issues in a private tour by Tokyo.

And, we’re seeing extra than simply locations. We’re seeing what occurs when folks join with a brand new tradition. We’re seeing how strangers who’re oceans aside can grow to be pals. We’re seeing curiosity and hospitality come collectively just about. And we’re seeing what occurs when persons are offered with a seemingly insurmountable problem: That the place there’s a group, there’s a means.
