Welcome to our very special Insider Experiences

These are the crème de la crème of the exciting cultural activities and tours we can arrange exclusively for InsideJapan Tours clients travelling on a full holiday package to Japan.

Each experience in this section has been created by our Insider staff based on their personal passions and interests - so you won't find these excursions anywhere else!

And who are our Insiders? From professional Japanese guides to ex-pats who have made Japan their home, our Insiders are united in their desire to strip back the layers of Japanese society and give you a unique glimpse into this fascinating culture.

You could visit Tokyo's video arcades and themed cafes with our resident gaming geek, or get the inside track on Kyoto's Zen heritage with an expert in Japanese religion. Step inside the secret world of sumo with an exclusive look behind the scenes at a morning sumo training session or meet one of the few remaining swordsmiths in Japan.

Got a burning desire to explore an aspect of Japanese culture not on these pages? Let us know and we'll create a bespoke Insider Experience to suit you.
