    This was my first time abroad. I can honestly say it’s been the best week of my life. My guide was delightful, knowledgable and easy to understand. The meals were delicious and the hotel views exceptional. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would go again in a heart beat!

    As an experienced traveler to other countries, I was expecting this tour to be pretty similar; I was pleasantly surprised by how it measured up. The tour guide, Ms. Yayoi Niwa, was fluent in English and well versed with how to make this tour informative and fun. You're in for a real treat if you get her! I found everything about the accommodations stellar and first world. There were so many amazing temples, parks, restaurants, shopping opportunities and we had a fantastic tour guide to help us every step along the way. Rarely have I encountered such a helpful, humorous, and thoughtful tour guide as Yayo. I highly recommend this tour for both novices and seasoned globetrotters. Have fun in Japan!

    I wish I had booked a longer tour for Japan with Japan deluxe tours b/c it was a lot of fun! I highly recommend Ms. Yayoi Niwa. She taught our tour group in the history of Japan and it's customs. I felt like every aspect of the tour was informative and infused with humor. Ms. Niwa drew maps for us, bought us delicious snacks, and customized information for those of us who asked for specific information. It is tremendously helpful that she is very experienced and fluent in English and American customs. I hope I book my next tour with her. I give 5 put of 5 stars without reservation! Also, the accommodations were lovely. The hospitality of the Japanese people are unmatched. I hope your first stay in Japan is equally as awesome!

    Great tour. I enjoyed every part of it. I definitely wouldn’t have seen as much on my own.

    Excellent all round! Accommodation was first class. Our guide, Hidesada Shimazaki, was very knowledgeable, caring and had a good sense of humour. I thought the tour was very well planned with a variety of sights and eating experiences. I, as a reasonably fit 76-year-old woman, was able to manage the large number of steps, but realise that not everyone of my age could. People need to be warned about this and to take walking shoes.

    The first half of the tour was a nice mix of parents with children or grand parents with grand children. We elected to add two days in front of the tour. The Tokyo subway system with bilingual signs and bilingual announcements on the trains made it easy to get around Tokyo.

    There's something for everyone on this tour. Four of the days are filled with traditional Japan culture and sights--a wonderful overview of temples and shrines, kimonos and tea ceremonies, traveling japan's rail and subway systems, views of the city skyline, etc. Many tours offer this, and Japan Deluxe Tour does this very well. But the reason we chose this particular tour was for the two days of Anime and Manga sights, and that is where our tour veered into the sublime for fans of J-pop culture. The kids, teens and tweens in our group were in heaven, which is what every parent wants on a family vacation, isn't it? I would do this tour again, and recommend it for the young, the young at heart, families, and definitely fans of anime and manga

    The best tour! My daughter wish for her birthday was a trip to Japan and this one was everything she wanted a more. A taste of anime combined with some traditional stops full of culture. She shopped in Harajuku and Shibuya and my husband and I were delighted to se Mt Fuji in his glory, not a single cloud in sight

Questions & Answers

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

  • What would be extra charge for departing a day later and arriving earlier?

    In regards to departing later, it is up to you to arrange your own hotel if you do plan on staying after the tour disbands. But there is no extra charge from our end if you want to extend your stay.
    There is no extra cost for arriving early morning.
    But please keep in mind that the airport transfers may not be running if you arrive extremely early in the morning. Check in for hotels in Japan is usually 3PM so you may have to store your luggage at the hotel until then.

  • Do you provide Visa assistance?

    Tour Radar does not give visa advice due to the vast number of nationalities which our customers represent. Some nationalities can travel freely over borders, where others require advance permission to enter. There are also changes in requirements from time to time. We recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.
