Personal Travel Consulting
Your amazing journey is just a phone call away.
Japan is wonderful, but planning your time here can be a real challenge, even for experienced travellers. Systems are quite different here and langauge barriers continue to be a problem. For example, with 160,000 + restaurants in Tokyo alone, it can be hard to choose and then reservations are quite difficult to make unless you speak Japanese. Tourism is booming and there are dynamic experiences to try and hidden gems around every corner but these are hard to find unless you are a local. All of these unknowns can add up to high stress levels while you are planning your trip, and mistakes can be time-consuming and expensive. We can help!
We love Japan! Our team of local experts know all the best spots, sightseeing tips and tricks, best ways to get around and what to do and not do during your stay. Of course, we specialize in all-things-food related, and we hope you have already booked a food tour, but in the process of creating our 30+ tours in 5 cities we have amassed a huge amount of information about traveling around the country and we have ALL the best connections, so why not put us to good use in planning the rest of your journey?
Organizing your travels should be fun, we can make it stress free and take care of your worries! Your travel assistant package will include:
