Particular dates or special requirements?
Are you coming to Japan on business and have a few extra days to explore the country? Would you like to join a scheduled tour but cannot make the dates? Or perhaps you have specific activities you would like to do and places to see in Japan? Or maybe you would like a tour just for your group of friends or family. Perhaps you like to do more or less walking, a different combination of sightseeing and walking? We will create a custom tour to suit your requirements.
Experience, knowledge and expert Tour Leaders
Whatever your requirements, please let us know and we will use all our experience and knowledge of Japan in creating a custom tour specially for you. All this plus the company of one of our ‘quiet stars of the show’ (Time Asia Magazine), one of our knowledgeable Tour Leaders.
Custom tours tailored to your needs
Walk Japan organises custom tours tailored to the specific needs of individuals and groups, including societies and associations, schools, friends and families. We will realise that dream tour of Japan for you. Options are numerous and include staying on remote islands, climbing mountains in remote and beautiful areas, visiting the studios of some of Japan’s craftsmen and women working in the traditional arts pottery, dyeing, paper making and more. Maybe you would like to try your hand in the studio?
Would you like to include a visit to a traditional cultural event like Bunraku puppetry, Sumo wrestling, or a little-known, but no less fascinating, local festival?
We can bring Japan’s quintessential tea ceremony to life in the company of one of the most senior foreign tea masters in Japan.
If food is your passion, all our tours feature it in abundance, but perhaps you would like to make the culinary delights of the country the central feature of your tour. You could include a visit to an organic farm and enjoy an evening in the company of the local farmers over a meal made of home-grown food and local sake. Maybe you would like to luxuriate in the surroundings and service of some of Japan’s best but little-known exclusive Japanese inns.
