The Japan Specialist

We are one of the UK’s leading providers of travel to Japan

Your Japan travel adventure awaits – let us arrange the perfect trip for you!

Whether you are planning to travel privately or as a company, solo or in a group, with a tour guide or independently, you can rely on us to provide the best service and advice. We can tailor your trip from the minute you get on the plane until you’re back home again. The Japan Specialist helps you every step of the way on your perfect trip to Japan, and we can even offer Japan travel packages in combination with other destinations such as South Korea. We are your one-stop shop for Japan travel: flights, accommodation, entertainment, train tickets, meals, guided tours and much more. Please note that we are a package tour provider. This means that we offer travel packages that can be adjusted as you like. However, we only arrange complete packages of land arrangements, with or without flights. But if you take flights with us too as part of your package, you have the financial peace of mind provided by the UK’s ATOL scheme. On this website you will find a large selection of tour package suggestions, to inspire you. We are also very happy to put together a unique trip tailored to your individual requirements.

First-class guidance from our experts

Our London office is comprised of an experienced team of Japan experts. Most of our team have lived and worked in Japan, and we have a rich experience and wealth of knowledge when it comes to travel around the country. Whether you are looking for suggestions or inspiration, or if you have a specific itinerary in mind, we can develop your Japan trip with you, and make it happen.

Our professional network spans the globe

We are a part of JTB, a global corporation and one of the biggest travel companies in the world. JTB had its beginnings in Japan way back in 1912, and today it is a global force with 29,000 employees in 39 countries across the world. Our global turnover ranks us in the travel industry’s big league alongside global players such as TUI, Carlson Wagonlit, Thomas Cook and American Express. For years, JTB has figured in the Top Five of the world’s largest travel organisations.

We are a part of Japan’s largest travel group

In Japan alone, JTB has 885 offices spanning the entire land of the rising sun. More than half of all visitors to Japan from overseas have their arrangements made by JTB, either in the foreground or background. As Japan’s largest travel organisation, JTB has a strong local network and long-standing relationships with suppliers, enabling us to offer competitive prices for all travel arrangements. We can offer great deals for flight and tour packages. If you would like to experience Japanese culture in the form of performances, guided tours or events, we can provide tickets, assistants, restaurant bookings, event planning and tour guides. We are also a major UK distributor of the Japan Rail Pass, a pass that offers great value for travel throughout Japan’s notional railway system, including the high-speed bullet train (“shinkansen”).
