Join us for a perfect, personalised journey through Tokyo, and beyond!
Maction Planet has been operating through word of mouth since 2008. In 2017, encouraged and persuaded by our guests, we launched our website with the goal of helping even more people experience the delights that Tokyo and Japan have to offer.
Everything we do at Maction Planet is inspired by Tokyo, the World’s Greatest Metropolis. There are four main outlets for this inspiration:
Maction Planet Travel
The main way we share our love of Tokyo and Japan with the world is through our bespoke tours and experiences. We can arrange anything, from multi-day tours of Tokyo and beyond to experiences such as unique tea ceremonies, craft beer tours, a fun evening at the baseball, sake and shochu tastings, photography and much much more. Everything is fully customised to create your perfect, personalized time in The World’s Greatest Metropolis.
As well as tours and experiences in and around Tokyo, we offer unique Pan-Japan Tours and Trip Planning services.
We are honoured to be highly evaluated by our guests, and have over 150 100% 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor.
The highlighted experiences are truly the tip of the iceberg. Contact us with your requirements. More interested in college baseball than the professional game? Fancy a magical evening with a private sanshin (traditional string instrument) concert in your hotel room? Want to participate in a tea ceremony so far off the beaten track that even in Japanese the address of the teahouse is not available! Maction Planet can help to ensure that your time in Tokyo is truly the trip of a lifetime.
Maction Planet Apparel
Maction Planet Apparel designs unique T-shirts inspired by Tokyo, the city we love. We work with world-renowned artists and designers, such as Livio Ramondelli, Matt Frank and Marika. We have also collaborated with top Tokyo brands such as Ramen Adventures and Shochu.Pro.
Maction Planet Blog
Our blog presents anything and everything to do with Tokyo. In the past, we have addressed subjects such as the origins of the names ‘Edo’ and ‘Tokyo’, introduced unique Tokyo experiences such as 10 of the city’s oddest museums and spotlighted the history of Kakigori. We have connected a Japanese proverb with an obscure insane avant-electropop underground duo from the 80s and exposed what the Tokyo locals are doing. Our highly-popular “Mac on Tokyo” interviews bring you the characters which shape The World’s Greatest Metropolis. We also tackle the important questions, like “Where do Pikachus go when they finish dancing?”
Maction Planet Radio
Maction Planet Radio was launched to bring the sounds of The World’s Greatest Metropolis to listeners around the world. Our flagship show is Tokyo ON, hosted by Maction Planet’s Resident DJ Royce Leong, with frequent guest appearances by Mac, Founder and Lead Guide of Maction Planet. Together, they spin tunes from a diverse range of Japanese artists, embellished with entertaining cultural commentary.
Message from Mac, Founder and Lead Guide of Maction Planet
Tokyo is truly the World’s Greatest Metropolis. The people, the food, the efficiency, the safety, the mystery of the past side by side with the technology of the future… it is a city that rewards in-depth exploration.
My passion for Tokyo is so large that it is difficult for me to articulate everything that I love about it! There are so many different aspects to Tokyo and our guests have taught us that everyone wants to see a slightly different side of it: the gardens, the backstreets, the temples, the architecture… or, in most cases, a mix of everything!
I am fortunate to have travelled to over 100 countries in a variety of ways – solo, with friends, independently and on tours. I have distilled this experience and I try to run all Maction Planet bespoke experiences the way I would want my perfect tours to be run – to make sure YOU get the most out of every moment in the World’s Greatest Metropolis, and beyond.
I hope we get the opportunity to show you the city and country we love. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let the excitement begin!
