Experience the magic of the changing seasons in Japan. Our tours are designed around seasonal highlights, taking you to see and do what's best when you're there. We offer different tours every season. Our next tours are for Autumn 2018, available only from November 14 to December 9.
Kyoto and its surrounding prefectures are the heart of Old Japan. The grandest temples, Japan's largest and most spectacular castle, the most traditional geisha districts and old streets, the warm little farm villages, the hot springs, they're all here. We specialize in tours of this area, giving you a deeper experience while saving you money from traveling too far.
Indulge your special interests and explore beyond the beaten track with our specialty tours. We have themed tours about the samurai era, the arts and crafts of Kyoto, Zen, food and cooking, ladies-only tours, and our personal passion, photography.
Enjoy your limited time with our small, private groups of just one to ten persons. It's just you and your friends, and we don't ask you to join any strangers. This gives you the best in flexibility of schedule, freedom to pursue your interests, eat where you like, and just hang out in good company.
We personally conduct all our tours, and we only take one booking per day so all our attention is on helping you. It's like having an old buddy in Japan! Expect at least one of us to be with you every step of the way, both of us if your group is 7 or more. My wife Cathy personally conducts the ladies' tours.
