In this paper, we propose GaZone, a system providing happiness through unusual immersive experiences surrounded by their favorite images. GaZone provides a function to search images on the Web and easily collect them in the VR environment realized by the head mounted display. The user immerses in the unusual environment surrounded by many images suited to their preference, resulting in experiencing the happiness that cannot be obtained by the conventional systems. From the user study, it was confirmed that users felt happiness and their hearts were moved by being surrounded by their favorite things.
