Overview

Japanese slacker comedy Tourism follows two micro-influencer friends working humdrum jobs. Nina and Su (Nina Endo and SUMIRE) win a trip to any country of their choice. After much deliberation, they head to Singapore and get lost among the tourist traps and urban sprawl. Missing phones, rooftop punk gigs, and a sudden dance sequence await them on their journey. Director Daisuke Miyazaki has made a name for himself with low-key dramas about Japanese youth (Yamato and Videophobia) but Tourism isn't really a drama — it's an amusing riff on materialism, alienation, and shopping centre design.

“A sweet, likeable, spirited insight into embracing friendship and defying alienation in the mobile-device age”
— Screen Space
“An exceedingly simple road movie that is no less entrancing for its lack of dramatic ambition”
— MUBI Notebook
“A pleasantly low-key riff on alienation and materialism within a globalising society”
— Film Pulse

Why You Should See This Film

Blending fiction, documentary, travel vlog and Instagram coverage, Tourism is an irresistibly likeable road-trip film of the digital age. It’s led with infectious excitement and jaded curiosity by Nina Endo and SUMIRE as they wander around, live streaming their travels to whoever’s watching with playful naturalism. While tapping into the listlessness of modern youth, the flurry of social media vanity and the dislocation of being abroad, this Daisuke Miyazaki joint is content to get lost in the moment, off the beaten track, in the kind company of strangers.
