In a group of no more than 16 travellers, gain a glimpse of this inscrutable country. While your Western tour leader takes care of logistics, Japanese guides will help to shed some light on the contradictions of a deeply traditional yet modern society. The small group size makes a big difference when travelling in such a reserved culture. Our respect for the local mores is rewarded with insights not accessible to larger groups: an authentic tea ceremony at Kenrokuen Garden, and a highly exclusive Geisha dinner and performance in Kyoto.
Sprawled over four mountainous, thickly-forested islands, Japan’s diversity is showcased in our tours. From the world’s largest fish market, Tsukiji in ultra-modern Tokyo, to an origami lesson among the thatched dwellings of UNESCO-preserved Shirakawago, our Japan small group tours are perfectly balanced.
