Japan Private Tours for First Timers

Japan Private Tours for First Timers

Our tours to Japan offer first-time passengers a splendid introduction to the ancient traditions, dynamic culture, picturesque beauty, and distinctive cuisine indigenous to the Land of the Rising Sun.

There are so many must-see points of interest in Japan that to appreciate them all could easily take a whole lifetime, but there are several places which are highly recommended to those visiting Japan for the first time. These sights are praised by returning travelers in blog after blog, and All Japan Tours has itineraries that connect them together for you as a first-time traveler to Japan, so that you won’t miss any of the most important experiences.

For cities, Tokyo and Kyoto are nearly opposites, that irresistibly attract visitors the world over. The capital city of Tokyo is massive: a vibrant megalopolis ever straining towards the future without ever quite forgetting its roots; tall skyscrapers in bustling commercial centers tower over thousand-year-old landmarks. The old capital of Kyoto (and nearby Nara) is an area thoroughly steeped in time- honored tradition. Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, and feudal castles stand near ancient streets frequented by kimono-clad geisha – the enigmatic keepers of the classical Japanese arts. These cities should be on any first-time traveler’s must-see list. .

For environmental beauty, Japan offers Mount Fuji - arguably the most iconic and celebrated mountain in the world. Everyone who visits Japan for the first time should plan a good viewing of Mount Fuji, but a trip to the 5th station (the common starting point on treks to the summit), is the best place for a more intimate inspection of the sacred mountain’s splendor. Yet Japan is full of such beauteous nature both wild and contrived – tranquil landscape gardens, dense groves of tall bamboo, delicate cherry blossoms – as a first-timer you are guaranteed to see natural wonders everywhere you want to travel in Japan. .

But true cultural immersion lies in experiencing the native customs of a foreign land, and Japan has local traditions going back centuries, which can still be enjoyed by the first-time traveler today. Learn how to meditate like a Zen Buddhist monk, taste freshly made matcha tea in a Green Tea Ceremony, or take a class in sushi preparation from a master chef. Appreciating activities like these allow the first-timer to truly say, “I have been to Japan.”
