All our tours come with English-speaking guides and assistants from start to finish. All our guides are highly knowledgeable and passionate about Japan and can give you a glimpse of the Japanese way of life.

Want to explore historical sites?

For clients who love history, we recommend the Historic Japan 10 days tour, where you can visit Nikko, Nara, Kyoto, and Hiroshima. These locations are filled with many beautiful, majestic temples and shrines that you can only find in Japan.

Want to see nature?

For the botanists among us, the World Heritage Special 10 days tour may be of interest as travellers can journey to Takayama and Shirakawago in the heart of the Japanese Alps to enjoy the Japanese countryside. A key feature is the Gassho-zukuri (thatched farmhouses), located in the midst of the Shogawa River Valley in Gifu Prefecture.
