How Many Times are you Going to Japan?

And don’t you want to do it right the first time?

But who to trust?

  • You may be finding that planning your trip to Japan is not like planning a trip to Europe or other western countries.
  • Information on the internet is inconsistent, unreliable and often based on limited personal experiences – many travelers have been once and tell you what they know from their own trip. But like so many well-meaning travel commentators, they don’t necessarily know everything and their travel style and preferences may not match yours at all.
  • Specialty travel companies charge significant fees for custom Japan tour planning – most Japan companies only offer full services that include all hotels, transportation, guides, etc. Due to the costs in Japan it’s just not economical to offer a menu of services.
  • Pre-packaged Japan tours are cookie-cutter and don’t meet your specific needs – one or two popular destinations with a busload of 40 other tourists doesn’t work for most travelers who are used to the independence and freedom of making their own travel plans.
