Jobs with InsideJapan Tours

Passionate about Japan? Want to share your love of Japan with people from around the world? A job with InsideJapan Tours could be just what you are looking for.

Ever since we began life in 2000, InsideJapan Tours has been built on a genuine passion for travel and adventure, and this continues to be reflected in the love and curiosity for Japan that is shared by each member of our ever-expanding team.

Today, InsideJapan Tours has four offices across the world. Our main headquarters is located in Bristol, UK, where the past couple of years have seen our numbers swell to 55 members (and still growing!).

Our Japan office is based in the centre of Nagoya and is the operational hub of InsideJapan Tours, which includes our customer support help desk. From just four full-time staff we now have 20 dedicated team members, whose hard work and attention to detail ensure that our clients have a stress-free time during their stay in Japan.

Our home in the USA is Boulder, Colorado. This is our base for US sales, and our staff members currently number just 18 - although this is bound to change!

Finally, our newest office opened in August 2016 down under in Brisbane, Australia. With four founding members we look forward to seeing this branch go from strength to strength.

If you have a genuine love of Japan, experience of living and working in Japan and speak Japanese to at least a good conversational standard, then we would love to hear from you. We are always on the look-out for tour leaders and high-calibre office staff. We are a young and enthusiastic team and work very hard to make InsideJapan Tours successful. We also offer a friendly, close-knit working environment with a great team spirit as well as wide-ranging opportunities for career development.
