Join us for a 14-day backpacking adventure trip in the land of culture! Japan is a magical place where old and new collide, a country full of incredible natural beauty and majestic mountains, crazy neon lights, world-class food, and fascinating history.

Starting in Tokyo and finishing in Hiroshima, we explore the iconic areas of Japan plus some places off the tourist trail. From partying in the famous Shinjuku area of Tokyo to walking down the stone paths passing Geisha in the Gion district in Kyoto, this trip is an adventure tour that will show you the best of the country in 14 days. Hike Monkey Mountain, explore the country’s famed street food, learn to make (and eat) sushi from a master, learn Kendo with a samurai descendant, and so much more!

A trip to Japan with us is a unique opportunity to explore this stunning place; a land where the sake is hot or cold, and the sun glistens off the snow-covered peaks. Where incense floats around temples and shrines, and where technological advances take the world by storm. Japan is a dream; a destination where all those leave with a newfound sense of wonder.

This is an active, fast-paced, backpacking-style tour with a lot of walking, so please make sure you're adequately prepared. Although all adults are welcome, please note that the majority of our guests on this tour are young adults in their 20's and 30’s.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.


  • Do people in Japan speak English?

    Estimates show that less than 30 percent of the Japanese population speak English at any level, with less than 5 percent being fluent speakers. So, the likelihood of encountering a fluent speaker on a random Japanese street is quite low. Most people working in tourist areas do understand simple English phrases, and most signboards, instructions, and menus in these areas are in both Japanese and English. Outside of these places, you will need a lot of hand gestures to get by.

  • How to plan an Asia tour?

    Asia is a relatively large continent, so there are a wide variety of destinations to explore. Therefore, if you are planning a multi-country trip to Asia, the first thing you need to prepare is the list of countries you are interested in along with your starting and ending points. You would also need to decide on the best time for your trip depending on seasonal variations that affect each country. 

    After finalizing when and where to travel in Asia, you should make arrangements for all the necessary travel documents. These would include visas, insurances, Covid-19 test reports, vaccine cards, and so on.


  • What is the best time to visit Japan?

    The best time to visit Japan is during the fall (September to December) and spring (March to May). To get more information on what to expect from each season, read our guide on the best time to visit Japan.

  • Which countries should I visit in Asia?

    Asia has more than enough destinations to meet every traveler’s needs and desires. If you are into adventure, look no further than the mighty Himalayas. Go on an exhilarating hike to the base camp of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, or head for the Indian states of Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh instead. Thailand, with its blend of dazzling nightlife, rich history, and striking monuments, is the perfect destination not just for those who wish to let their hair down but also for travelers looking forward to being part of a memorable cultural experience. 

    Go on a tour to Cambodia, home to the monumental Angkor Wat, if you are into off-the-beaten-path destinations, or choose a Japan tour if you wish to discover how traditions and modernity can be seamlessly blended. The Maldives, with its numerous islands and beaches, is sure to provide you with countless opportunities to kick back on sandy stretches, swim in turquoise waters, and go island-hopping, while the rainforests of Malaysia and Indonesia are a haven for wildlife enthusiasts.
