Tailor-made Tours

A Japan Tour made just for you

In addition to our scheduled tours, we also offer itineraries tailored exactly according to your requirements. Working together, we can help design your dream holiday to suit your budget, the time of year you prefer to travel, your chosen hotel type or your particular interests. Whether you prefer to self-guide, would like to visit a particular area or are interested in something specific like Japanese gardens, traditional activities or sumo, we can arrange a tour just for you. We would be happy to discuss your requirements and make a detailed printed quote.

Our tailor made itineraries can be designed to include as much or as little support as you need.
