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.
Originally from Denver, Colorado, Niko has lived in Japan twice and calls it their second home.
Where is your favourite place in Japan, and why?
"My favourite place in Japan has got to be Yakushima Island. I'm a big fan of the movie Princess Mononoke. I never realised that it was based on a real place. When you walk among the trees on the island, you feel isolated from humanity, but so wonderfully connected to the world at large. There's a sense of serenity and the natural beauty around you is breathtaking.
"I recommend spending a few days on the island to make sure you have a chance to go into the forest, but also to appreciate the sea - with the best of both worlds at your fingertips, how can you not?"
