Monumento

Discover the hidden history of Japan!

Any tourist guidebook will give you plenty of information on Meiji Shrine or the Imperial Palace, but there’s a lot more to Japan than these big name destinations. Take a walk in any neighbourhood in Japan, and you’ll soon come across a temple or statue. Often there will be a placard describing the history of the site, but the information will only be in Japanese.

Before Monumento, the story behind these places was hidden unless you spoke Japanese. But now you can use Monumento to discover their secret past. Simply take a photo of the placard, upload it, and we’ll textize and translate the content so you too can understand these unknown gems of Japanese history.
