Vacation type

Small group adventure vacation

Whether you are traveling alone or with friends/family its good value, and a great way to meet new people! While itineraries are pre-planned there is plenty of free time to explore at your own pace. This trip will appeal to travelers of all ages who enjoy meeting new people as well as seeing new places.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Throughout this tour, we use public trains. Not only are these trains the fastest and most convenient way of traveling through the country, they are also the most economical and responsible. The cost of the local and bullet trains are included in the price of the tour. On rare occasions, we use taxis and local transport run privately or by local businesses.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Community - On our Japan Adventure Tours, we stay in locally owned, small hotels and where possible stay in traditional ryokan for an authentic experience. This encourages local communities to retain their heritage and preserves the local culture. The use of locally run hotels also invests money directly in to the local economy. Likewise, our Tour Leaders are all experienced in sourcing meals in small restaurants where travelers can experience traditional Japanese cooking.

Local customs - On arrival, at the pre-departure meeting which takes place on the first day of the tour, the Tour Leader will take great care explaining important Japanese customs so that the tour can be conducted in a respectful manner. The Tour Leader will cover tipping practises, table manners and threshholds. On some occasions, you may be required to remove your shoes and your Tour Leader will give you warning of this. There will be opportunities to bathe in traditional Japanese communal baths called onsens which many of the hotels we use have on site. These traditional baths are an excellent way of meeting local people.
