Our team at Inside Japan Tours

The sun never sets on the InsideJapan Tours team (well, maybe on Sundays) as we have offices in Bristol (UK), Boulder, (USA), Brisbane (Australia) and Nagoya (Japan). On this page you can meet the people behind our Japan tours and holidays.

We have a wide range of backgrounds and interests, but you can be sure that the one thing that ties us all together is a love of Japan, Japanese culture and a passionate desire to share that with other people.

From the accounts department, through the travel consultant teams to the tour leaders and guides on the ground, you can rest assured that everything we do is to make sure you have the best possible experience of Japan.

Adeline Kuroki

Adeline knew next to nothing about Japan when sent on a business trip, but she instantly felt at home.

This Maine native realised her dream of relocating two years later, moving to Fukuoka, a city on Kyushu island. Having lived in Chile as a child and Beijing for three years as an adult (even braving cycling on the city's swarming streets), making the bold move was just another adventure.

In fact - besides embracing much missed cheese and olives - after seven years outside the US, she's experiencing a kind of reverse culture shock. Hearing English spoken everywhere is still a novelty!

Having led group hikes in Japan, braved tough terrain on bicycle and opened a fitness studio in Fukuoka, Adeline loves being active and getting out and about. Sinking into a Japanese onsen (hot spring bath) overlooking the ocean is one of her fondest memories, and while a long soak never needs an excuse, it seems pretty well deserved after all that.

We're not sure the US can compete with Japan's unique volcanic landscape, but as a city with endless outdoor opportunities and a team who can all speak Japanese, she couldn't be in a better place to soothe that reverse culture shock.
