Japan Travel Specialist
Deer in Nara Park
Japan is a country famous for its exports. However, the land itself is rich in history, nature, culture, and some of the most amazing food on the planet. Japan is a nation with everything, from snowy mountains and ski trails to tropical beach resorts, and from modern skyscrapers and the latest technology to Geishas and ancient temples. Couples, families, and independent explorers alike will be delighted and amazed by all there is to offer.
Winter sports enthusiasts will revel in some of the world’s best powered snow and incredible ski resorts. Hokkaido is famous for its snow (and snow festival!), but you can also find untouched powder closer to Tokyo. For those who prefer warmer weather, the Shimanami Kaido is a cycling route across six islands in the Seto Inland sea which offers panoramic views of the glistening bay and its thousands of scattered islands.
Japan’s centuries in seclusion created a culture and country unlike anything else. With food so unique that it counts as UNESCO intangible heritage, your taste buds will be delighted with every bite. While tempura, sushi and teriyaki are common in the US, there is so much more to be discovered. Try Takoyaki, octopus balls common at festivals; Okonomiyaki, cabbage pancakes; sea urchin, and the diverse regional specialties wherever you visit for a taste of true Japan. Immerse yourself Japanese culture by attending a local festival, there’s one nearly every day somewhere in the country. Wow your taste buds with street food, marvel at performers and musicians and experience something like nothing you’ve seen before.
Whether you want to delve into Tokyo and uncover the varied districts and hidden gems of one of the world’s largest cities or get out and unearth the charm of quaint villages and secluded temples, I am able to assist with organizing everything and anything to make your Japanese trip unforgettable. Be it a traditional visit to the Japan’s big three destinations of Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka, a tour of the highlights, or a fully independent voyage to the undiscovered and hidden gems, I can not only get you there, but ensure that every detail is arranged so all you need to do is enjoy. The Land of the Rising Sun is waiting for you!
