James "I had an amazing time! The tour guide (Kaori Kawayoko) was very friendly and helpful.

    I expected the tour to be pretty basic and flexible given the price that I paid and tour description. This suited me as I mainly did the tour to meet people so I could have the option and the tour guide there is I needed to ask questions. Kenji our tour guide gave us guided tours everyday pretty much which was amazing as you could decide whether to do your own thing and meet up later or go with the group.

The transport and travel plans were very organised and we had a healthy balance of free time along with times we gathered for dinner. It was great to have free roam of each place for a while so we could all see the things we wanted to see. I will definitely visit Japan again and will look into using Intrepid to plan another trip to another country in the future. ありがとうございます!

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • April 1, 2017

      Is airfare included?

      We specialise in giving you the best tours from around the world, however the tours we offer do not include airfare and we do not book or advise on airfare. You will be responsible for booking your flights to meet with the group at the starting city. We do not recommend booking airfare before confirming your tour.

    • February 1, 2017

      Can you please let me know if transportation is provided to and from the airports?

      Due to the high private transport prices, Intrepid does not offer private arrival transfers in Japan. Japans public transport is a cheaper option than arrival transfers and very efficient. We recommend you take the train to your starting point. It's not complicated and there are plenty of people around to help you if you need to ask for directions!
