curating Easy Fast JAPAN - travel simply - Japan Travel Planning made easy. Do you need a Japan Trip Plan or Travel Itinerary? We are Japan travel planning experts who have curated the internet to create simple, easy-to-use, Japan travel itineraries for those who prefer to travel on their own. 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. So who are we? Curated Japan is an offshoot of one of the premier Japan custom travel planners, Esprit Travel & Tours.
