The Japan Adventure Tour was created by two friends who bonded over their mutual love of Japan. The goal was to offer an intimate tour experience where travelers would experience the beauty of Japan while gaining an understanding of Japanese culture and customs. For many of our daily treks we will be joined by Japanese friends who will provide travelers with a glimpse into the local way of life. We will explore more than 2,000 years of Japanese history and culture, starting at the historic city of Hiroshima, Japan’s backbone of manufacturing. Then onto Kyoto, the most magical city and former imperial capital. The tour continues with a trip back in time to visit Kanazawa and its unique samurai architecture. The tour ends in the ultra-modern city of Tokyo. Along the way we will take side trips to visit out of the way places and important UNESCO World Heritage Sites that include ancient temples, shrines, local markets, castles, breathtaking gardens and a guarantee of many unexpected adventures. We will travel by rail, subway, city bus and also do a lot of walking just as the Japanese do.

The tour is limited to 12 to 16 travelers so don’t delay, sign up today!
