Japan City Tours Like You’ve Never Seen Before

During our Japan city tours, our mission is to share both the traditional and the modern, highlighting the unforgettable and the fascinating. We want you to leave our cities feeling like you better understand local culture and history, but also like you just had a fun experience and made new friends! 

While our top-notch tour guides are passionate about our cities, we don’t want to bore you with endless facts and figures. We’re not trying to be a walking Wikipedia. We treat you like friends who are visiting, sharing the interesting stories and information that you can only get from a local. And we do it all in your language. All of our guides speak fluent English (and Japanese, too!) so you can feel confident and comfortable as you explore an unfamiliar area.

When you join one of our guided city tours in Japan, we’re welcoming you into our favorite places and spaces. But we’re not taking kick-backs or forcing you to shop at certain stores. We’re up-front about our prices so you know exactly what’s included, and we create genuinely interesting itineraries to show off the past and present of these unique neighborhoods and cities. 

And because our tours are private or small groups (no more than 6 guests), we can be flexible and nimble; we’re not here to herd sheep.

If you’re looking for a guided tour in Japan, we would love to show you around. Explore our Japan tours and reach out any time if you have questions about where we go or what we do.
