While Tokyo is the greatest city in the world (in our humble opinion), there is lots to explore beyond. Our Beyond Tokyo tours are planned to give our guests the same top-ranked experience as our Tokyo tours: Density of experience, a holistic approach to guiding, flexibility and authenticity.
For those who want to base themselves in and around Tokyo, historic towns like Kamakura or Kawagoe; World Heritage Sites like Nikko and Mount Fuji; or Yokohama, the second largest city in Japan… all provide incredible architecture, diverse experiences and help place your Tokyo time in context. Thanks to Japan’s incredible public transport even cities 500km from Tokyo can become feasible destinations for day trips – even Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital.
Then there are the off-the-beaten-track day trips – fancy two sake breweries and a trip back in time to a retro town? Heading out to pick grapes in the foothills of Mount Fuji? Organic eating in a unique farmstay in Chiba? Visiting Craft Beer Breweries and Whisky Distilleries? Untouristed fireworks displays in beautiful onsen towns? Let us know your interests and we can help plan your bespoke tour beyond Tokyo.
With our Pan-Japan Tours you get to go even further. See Japan in all its glory – from the urban landscapes to rural life with its photogenic rice paddies and relaxing onsen. Experience traditional cultural, visit World Heritage Sites and gorge on the diversity of food and drink from all over the country. From the well-known Golden Route to the little-travelled north, the length and breadth of this remarkable land awaits. Paul and James booked an 11-day adventure with Mac, our Founder and Lead Guide, across Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima and much much more – read their reviews here and here!
