Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Japan culture and cuisine tour


We have a strict environmental policy to make sure that the environments we visit are not damaged or spoilt in any way. We put effort into educating our travelers to be aware of their impact on the ecosystems and to act responsible.

Our correspondence and promotion is carried out via the Internet and email, minimizing the amount of paper we use. When we searched hotels for our Japan culinary tour we picked only those hotels who have environmental responsibility program in place and employ local people. Before traveling to Japan we advise our travelers to take care of nature, control water usage whenever they can, and pick up all the litter that they see.

Excursions and attractions in which captive wildlife is held are not offered, except for properly regulated activities in compliance with local, national and international low. Any disturbance of natural ecosystem is minimised.


This tour is designed to show local culture, cuisine, and old Japanese tradition. All of our guides, drivers and staff are local people. We also use local transport wherever possible, from trains, buses, taxis to the local metro.

On this tour we encourage our tourist to be familiar with local food and cuisine. In order to support local economy we buy products for our cooking classes only in Local markets. Our Chefs are all lokas and in order to preserve japanese traditional cuisine, they are preparing and serving all dishes with traditional techniques.
In the aim to support the local economy we only eat in local restaurants.

Our goal is not only to help the local community but also to educate our customers to act in a socially responsible way. We will attempt to give an insight and understanding of the host culture and community to our clients so that they can gain more from their visit. All our travelers who book through our company receive information on Japan prior to their trip, to understand and respect the culture and environment of the host destination. When visiting temples and sacred places such is Senso-ji Temple, we tell our travelers to act and dress according to local rules. We are doing our best to transfer our knowledge to others so we could together act responsibly in preserving the planet.
