Classic Private Journeys

Our Classic Private Journeys are designed for those who want to travel Japan at their own pace, following their own interests, at an affordable price. A private journey to Japan can be expensive – for a group smaller than 8 people, public transportation is the most cost-efficient way to travel Japan. Thankfully, Japan has the world's most convenient public transportation system. Depending on the cities and area, trains cover almost all transportation needs. Japan's trains are spotless, quiet, and always on time. However, there is a lot of walking involved if you travel by train since some attractions are far from the station. As Japan specialists, we know how to make your travels as smooth as possible.

Our Classic Private Journeys feature carefully chosen, centrally located hotel accommodations near stations and sights. This is convenient for exploring the city without hassle as you travel with our private guides via public transportation.

Plan your trip

When you contact us through e-mail or phone, we will discuss the type of trip and services you're interested in. There are many things to consider when planning your trip to Japan, such as your travel date, length of stay, destination cities, points of interest, and budget. Based on this information, we will create an initial “sketch” itinerary that includes an outline of recommended travel routes, destinations, accommodations, transportation type, and services we can provide.

If you're not sure which Japan tour is for you, many of our clients select one of our existing itineraries and modify it according to their interests and budget. Other clients have their own ideas about what to see and do, or even a specific itinerary in mind. Please have a look through some of the itineraries for inspiration. Our itineraries are created by Japan specialists, all of whom have years of background working as a tour guide in Japan.
