Best trip ever!
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“Had a wonderful trip. Fantastic views, beautiful cherry blossoms and lovely people everywhere we went. The tour took us to different parts of Japan so I felt we got to see the many different aspects of the country.”
Blown away each day!
5 - Excellent
  • Adam Davis
“The hotels we stayed at were super cool! Each place felt very authentic and unique to Japan. All that we saw in Japan was amazing, including all the traditional Japanese temples. I was blown away each day!”
Perfect for me
5 - Excellent
  • Dennis Laehn
“The group leader was very good and we were able to experience all the places well with little explanations/suggestions, which was exactly the right thing for me. If you expect to get every detail of every place like a museum tour, you may want to choose another option. However, after we had explored independently, the guide was able to answer most of the questions that arose.”

Japan Group Tours

No matter what your particular travel style might be, there is bound to be a Japan group tour to suit you.

  • City Sightseeing with a group in Tokyo: On a group tour of Tokyo, travel around the vibrant Harajuku district, the Meiji Shrine, and more with an expert local guide. Tokyo is a megalopolis with many facets and layers to it. With a guide by your side, you will get to visit the spots that many solo foreign travelers rarely venture. 
  • Explore religious sites on a Kyoto group tourThere are plenty of shrines, temples, and UNESCO heritage sites in Kyoto, such as the ancient Nijo Castle. Japan group tours usually cover a lot of religious sites in the kyoto. And the best part is group tour parties can skip queues at some popular attractions.
  • Relax at a hot spring with your group in HakoneThe hot spring culture and onsen tradition in Japan goes centuries back. One of the best places to have an onsen experience is Hakone. Travel around the 17 different hot springs in the area, and relax with your traveling companions. Once you are all rejuvenated, head to the local Shinto temple, or get your fill of art at the Hakone Open Air Museum.

  • Budget group tours in Japan: If you are on a tighter budget in the notoriously expensive Japan, a budget group tour can be a great way to save up some money.

Travel experience and benefits of group tours in Japan

  • Head up to the Kamikochi National Park and explore the mountains, forests, and rivers in a safer, group setting.
  • Accommodation and transport costs in Japan can add up when traveling solo in Japan. So a group tour is a good way to save money.
  • If you opt for a private group tour around Japan, you can control the pace of your adventure, without having to organize it yourself completely.

Tips when doing group tours in Japan

  • If you want to see Japan’s famous cherry blossoms in your group tour, book your trip between March and May.
  • Tipping is considered rude in Japan. So, do not be surprised if your tip is refused. If you want to give your tour guide or driver a token of appreciation, bring a small gift from your home country instead.
  • Get the meeting points or accommodation for your group tours written in Japanese. If you are trying to find it again after spending some free time exploring, you can simply pass the address to a taxi driver.
