What Our Expert Say? “I feel really privileged to have lead tours in Japan. It’s such an incredible country, with every day bring a new and different experience. The clash of old and new cultures, the friendliness of the people, the buzz of riding the bullet train through stunning scenery – all add up to a fantastic experience.” John Black, tour leader.

Ask Our Manager: "Japan is a land of towering sky scrapers and neon-lit streets, but she is also home to the Asia of yesteryear; age-old trading towns in the Kiso Valley, the temples of Takayama, and the stunning the Japanese Alps are some of my favourite destinations." A. Giblin - Senior Product Manager
