Our meaningful trips in Japan
Throughout our trips, we try to offer meaningful experiences you’ll remember long after your return home. Whilst in Kyoto you’ll explore the backstreets with a local guide, showing you a side of the city most travellers won’t ever see. What’s more if you head to the quaint town of Takayama, you can learn all about the traditional art of Japanese gardening, with a local gardener.
Meet our Japan Travel Specialists
Our Travel Specialists know and love all things Japanese. They’ve eaten the food (from sushi to ramen and all the unusual delicacies in between), rode on the world-famous bullet trains and sung karaoke in the late night bars (trust us, we’ve seen the pictures!). They’re super passionate about Japan and nothing pleases them more than helping travellers create their perfect trip. Find out all about our Japan team and their handy tips.
Our Local Japanese Project
In all our destinations we like to support a local project to give something back. In Japan we are proud supporters of Mirai No Mori. This is an organisation that supports abused, neglected and orphaned children in Japan. They run a number of summer and winter camps, packed with activities and useful classes that help children grow into happy and successful adults.
