Some tours will offer more adventure and off-the-beaten-track locations, but don’t worry about this – we will plan it for you – giving you ample information before travelling, hence making it a memorable and exciting trip.

Our self-guided tours of Japan are designed for the independent traveller who enjoys finding their own way around and is up for the challenge of using our access maps to find your way from one place to the next. Part of this experience is travelling around Japan like a local, using public transport and taxis.

Frequently asked questions

When is the best season to go to Japan?

Japan is a country with four distinct seasons.

It is therefore easy to predict temperatures so depending on the temperatures you prefer to travel, will determine what the best season for you will be. If colder temperatures don’t bother you, we recommend going in the Winter for a number of reasons:

  1. Fewer people/tourists at the must-see sights
  2. Less traffic in cities so you can see more
  3. Prices are less peak so we can get more for your money!
  4. Colder temperatures mean cosier atmosphere indoors, especially in your ryokan and at the hot springs (onsen baths)
  5. Make the most of the outdoor onsens surrounded by snow (if going into mountainous regions)

How do I get there?

You arrange your own flight or we can arrange it for you. We work closely with local agents for flight bookings, so if you prefer to deal with just one company for your tour & flights we can do this for you. Simply ask for a quotation when booking your tour. We recommend you communicate your interest in the tour before booking your flight as this way we can advise you on the best options. ALL tours begin and end in Japan. This means you are not limited to just one country either.

How much extra money will I need?

We estimate you will need approximately 5,000JPY – 8,000JPY per day which will be used for personal use only, i.e. some meals, drinks, souvenirs, etc. All other costs such as entrance fees, transport, hotels, and activities will be included in the price.
