If you love to travel independently, but with the help and inspiration to make it all happen, our Self-Guided Adventures are just the ticket for you.
Sometimes when you go on holiday you just want to take a breather from your busy life at home and at work to simply unwind. Explore new places at your own pace and make your own discoveries. But you also want to know that you'll be staying in good accommodation in great locations, and that you won't be stressed about which train to take, or the best way to get from the airport to your hotel.
You'll get exactly that freedom and reassurance - with an amazing experience to boot - on one of our Self-Guided Adventures. These Japan holidays make it easy to explore the country by yourself, without a group or a tour leader and yet with support every step of the way.
Before you travel, you'll have a chat with one of our expert consultants who will then select and book tried-and-tested accommodation, organise and explain all your transport arrangements and arrange exciting experiences and hands-on activities. And when you're on holiday in Japan, our Nagoya office staff are just a phone call away to offer back-up advice and emergency support.
Any Self-Guided Adventure can be arranged to start on any day of the year, so all you need to do is pick up the phone to begin planning your dream Japan holiday. If you need some inspiration, just click the link below to have a look through some example itineraries.
