    Japan may have become my new favourite country. This trip was incredible - highlights included visiting the geisha district in Gion, taking the train to Yufuin and exploring Tokyo. Charles was one of the best tour leaders - his knowledge was fantastic.... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

    • Does the Back Roads of Japan tour include international flights?

      Flights are not included in the tour package. 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.

    • Will I need visas?

      Visa requirements vary for different nationalities depending on the countries you will be visiting. We provide a rough guide to worldwide visas on our website but this is by no means definitive and you should either use a visa service or contact each country’s consulate or embassy for the latest information, well in advance of travel. Please note that obtaining the necessary visas is your responsibility and if you don’t have the correct visa for your destination(s) you may miss out on all or part of your tour.

    • We are two ladies who would like a room of our own. Do you have a single supplement on your tours in Japan?

      The single supplement is completely optional. You are not required to pay a single supplement to join the tour. The tour price advertised is based on a twin share basis, if you are a single traveller you will be roomed with a passenger of the same gender. The single supplement optional cost is if you would like your own room on the tour.
