2018 Tori-no-ichi Kumade for Maction Planet

Maction Planet celebrates two year anniversary of www.mactionplanet.com

Maction Planet, the top-rated boutique tour operator revolutionising custom travel in Japan, today celebrates the second anniversary of the launch of its website, www.mactionplanet.com

Maction Planet began as a bespoke tour and experience operator focused primarily on Tokyo and surroundings. In the two years since the website launch the company has grown from humble ‘word-of-mouth’ beginnings to offer experiences all around Japan. 

Mac, Founder and Lead Guide of Maction Planet, commented on this milestone: “We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished in the two years since we launched our website. Maction Planet currently has 194 TripAdvisor reviews, all with a 5-star rating, leading to a Top 6 ranking. This places us in the Top 2% of all Tokyo tour offerings listed on the world’s largest travel site. We couldn’t be happier.”

Looking ahead to Year 3

“Maction Planet has experienced exceptional growth and development over the past year.  Awareness of our tours and experiences has risen dramatically and we have become the go-to Tokyo tour provider for a number of elite travel partners” said Mac.

“A great example of our expansion is the formal launch of our Pan-Japan Tours. These were only accessible through word-of-mouth. We decided to make our take on custom travel in Japan available to everyone and the reviews we have received from guests who have toured the country with me have been outstanding.”

The first weeks of 2019 have been so busy with inquiries for Mac and the rest of the Maction Planet team across Japan that they are close to 100% capacity for the first half of the year. The second half does not look like letting up, especially with the 2019 Rugby World Cup being held in Japan from 20 September to 2 November.

“Some of our most enterprising guests have locked in dates 18 months in advance! My key advice to all clients in 2019 is ‘Book early to avoid disappointment‘.”

We continue…

““Having visited 108 countries,  I know how important travel is, and how important it is to get right. Whatever the future holds, our top focus will always be on our clients’ needs and experiences.” said Mac. 

“Thank you always to our incredible guests from all over the world. We couldn’t do what we do without your incredible support.”
