Our Private Tours

Ideal for individuals, couples, families, and other affiliated groups, our private tours are custom-designed to serve your specific needs and interests. These tours offer the ultimate in flexibility ranging from the budget minded traveler to those who want five-star luxury.

We have been conducting Private Tours of Japan for many years so we are well prepared to help you create an itinerary that will make the most of your visit to Japan and best serve your interests and budget.

To give you an idea of the possibilities please look at the Tour Highlights on each of the Scheduled Tours we offer.

Select Your Accommodations

Unless you have already made arrangements, we will book your lodging — anything from western-style luxury five-star hotels to traditional Japanese Ryokan (Inn) or even Minshuku (home stay). Just let us know your preferences and budget.

Travel within Japan

For first-time visitors, traveling within Japan can be confusing, even overwhelming. We will handle itinerary planning, including purchasing Rail Passes and making reservations.

Experiences and Activities

Japan is filled with ancient temples, modern cities, beautiful gardens and shrines, unique cultural events, and amazing food. We tailor each tour to match your interests. Below is a list of just some of the possibilities that we can offer. When contacting us regarding a private escorted tour let us know your interests.

*Please note: we offer Land-only tours; you are responsible for getting to and from Japan. Also, please note some tours may begin in Osaka and end in Tokyo. Please call Steve if you have questions about this. Steve (or one of his associates) will meet you as you emerge from Customs at the Airport on the Tour Commencement Date. Flights from North America always depart a day earlier, since you “lose a day” crossing the International Date Line. If you are considering arriving at or departing from Haneda Airport (HND), or have other plans for arriving in Japan, please discuss this with Steve as early as possible. Some flights into Haneda arrive at very inconvenient times (which is probably one reason they are sometimes cheaper). Please read our Terms & Conditions before committing to any tour.
