that unify
remote spaces

tonari is natural, energizing, face-to-face communication that actually feels like being in the same room.

it enables presence and closeness, faster and more creative communication, and helps build trust — making it easier for teams to grow across distances.

tonari is more
like teleportation
than a video call

being together is important, but travel and video calls aren’t enough. tonari enables people to instantly be together, with no travel stress or jetlag.

eye-to-eye and

non-verbal communication is a huge part of how we convey emotions and build trust. tonari’s unique camera system — hidden inside the screen — allows for true eye contact, full body language, and clear facial expressions. see, feel, and be totally immersed in conversations.

life-sized and

bigger is better. with tonari’s large floor-to-ceiling screen — displaying life-like detailed video at 3K 60fps — you can see the whole room, feel the vibe, notice when people come and go, and spark more conversations.

extremely fast, with no perceptible lag

tonari has sub-100ms glass-to-glass latency from Tokyo to Osaka, and sub-150ms from Tokyo to Los Angeles — that’s 3~5x faster than most video calls. gestures, reactions, and laughter all happen at the right time. no waiting to talk or awkward interruptions.

always-on for closeness and spontaneity

universally designed with no buttons or settings, no dialing, and no learning curve. this brings people together in casual, unintentional ways — even when no one is talking — and gives birth to serendipitous events and creative ideas that make our days more interesting.

screen sharing

use a dedicated screen to share apps, presentations, videos, and more — and collaborate as though you're right next to each other. easy wireless sharing via AirPlay, Chromecast, and Miracast, or wired sharing via HDMI.

hybrid calls

tonari supports plug-and-play integration with most video conferencing devices, including Teams, Meet, Zoom, Webex, and more. seamlessly host or join calls with remote participants as if both tonari locations are in one meeting room.

secure, private, reliable

fully encrypted peer-to-peer communication via wireguard means your connection is totally secure and private, with no communication passing through any tonari or third-party servers. tonari can even run over private networks in mission-critical scenarios.


tonari uses about 450 watts of energy while awake, and much less while sleeping. even in a full year at two locations, tonari’s energy use would produce less than half the carbon emissions of a single business class flight between London and New York.

tonari feels
more natural

video calls are convenient, but tiresome. they lag, glitch, and stutter. we squint to see tiny disembodied faces. we react late and interrupt each other. we see ourselves and feel self-conscious.

because human experience can’t be shrunk down, we built technologies that scale up. refined to the highest levels of performance, and expanded to the limits of human perception.

🚌 😴

tonari is like the shinkansen, and video calls are like the night bus.

you may still get there, but without the speed, comfort, and convenience. and you’ll pay with the tiredness you feel after the ride.

technology shouldn't
be intrusive.
it should just be.

better communication
→ better organizations

build trust and strengthen teams

creative and high-performing teams rely on trust, relationships, and psychological safety to move quickly with agility. tonari enhances the ability of teams to connect emotionally and in the day-to-day, with a convenience and tightness that would be impossible through travel.

case study: Frontier Consulting

connect easily without scheduling

find more time for catch-ups when it’s convenient. no scheduling or waiting for replies. no need to find a headset or a room. because tonari is always-on, you can instantly and effortlessly call out and jump into a conversation for as little or as long as needed, just like being in the same place.

case study: freee

collaborate through complexity

tonari is excellent for rapid, emotive, nuanced, and creative communication. it’s also great for long work sessions that would normally be done face-to-face, like when kicking off a new project, onboarding a new hire, or just working through a challenging task. tonari ‘war rooms’ can be a great setup for multiple teams to work together at different times.

case study: PlatinumGames

time-critical communications

sense, adapt, and respond to timely and critical challenges where quick decision-making is crucial and when being in sync matters. when setting tonari next to key persons or work stations, it can be an effective way to manage complex operations across locations, including business continuity and mission-critical applications.

case study: JR East

simply be together

connect with others more often, share space and vibes, and be in the know — whether it’s meeting someone new, overhearing an interesting conversation, or just noticing someone’s cool sneakers. placing tonari in open spaces or next to where teams sit and work allows people to simply spend more time together and feel closer to each other.

case study: Tokyo University of Science

expand further
without boundaries


hire anywhere and grow flexibly

hire leadership and strong talent in new places, and grow more flexibly into new cities and regions. smaller distributed offices also reduce commutes, improve quality of life, and save costs, without the drawbacks of other hybrid and remote setups.

case study: tonari team

reach new markets

venture further regionally or internationally in pursuit of new opportunities and markets. tonari makes it easier to set up new bases and support local teams and customers, providing small offices with frequent and high-bandwidth access to colleagues and resources in headquarters or larger offices.

case study: Leave a Nest

“We introduced tonari just in time for the expansion of our Singapore team in November 2022. As this was the first time for us to cross from Japan into another country, we were a bit nervous, but with tonari we’ve been impressed with how smooth the experience has been. I use tonari every day, and when I pass by I also look to see who's around and sometimes check in or say hello. It not only improves work efficiency, but is also very useful in building trust and sharing the same energy and culture.”

Akitaka Wilhelm Fuji
President, Real Tech Holdings

unify company culture

tonari helps remote teams feel more plugged-in and enables relationships and communities to form across locations and departments. installing tonari in collision spaces like snack bars or entrance areas allows for more serendipitous greetings and continual feelings of closeness.

case study: Itochu Techno Solutions

share resources across locations

connecting headquarters and branch offices can provide small teams with the resources of bigger ones, improving access to management and leadership, back-office, and other functions. tonari can also be set up in private rooms for remote specialists to meet directly with clients and visitors.
