My wife and I booked a Private Custom Tour as our trip included visiting traditional sites, relatives and friends in multiple cities. Our travel agent (Kiyoshi Katsume) was terrific with structuring our itinerary (we had to cancel and re-book due to COVID). The guides/translators were extremely professional, personable, flexible and kind. They helped us with anything and everything that presented itself. We would highly recommend working with Japan Tours.

The tour had a variety of activities for everyone to enjoy. The hotels were very nice and the included breakfasts made it easy. Our guide Billy was extremely professional and easy to talk to. He was very knowledgeable and we were never disappointed for every recommendation he had. If I were going to do another tour I would want Billy to be my guide again. 10/10

All Japan Tours did a wonderful job of putting a private tour together for us at the last minute, when a group tour we had planned on was cancelled. Our guides were very helpful in steering us around the country and squeezing in many glorious sights every day. A highlight was the ryokan with the stellar view of Mt. Fuji out our window, the various fun neighborhoods of Tokyo, Todai-ji in Kamakura and the beautiful shrines and gardens of Kyoto.

I really enjoyed my first time visit to Japan, and the tour guide was super nice, and patient with me. The tour guide showed me pop culture and traditional/rural areas throughout Tokyo. The tour guide totally helped me on how to use the train stations and proper ettiquette in Japan.

Overall, this was a truly incredible experience and the level of service throughout the organisation process was fantastic. We very much appreciated the swift responses to our questions and requests, and the attempts to fulfil our wishes throughout. Billy was a warm and enthusiastic guide, who clearly loves what he does. As a first trip to Japan, this was a fantastic snapshot introduction to such a wonderful country.

An absolutely stunning itinerary that shows so much of Japan and its culture. My wife and I could not have asked for a better first tour in this country! Every day was filled beautiful scenery and locations. I wish I could go on this tour for the first time again, it was truly magical. Our guide, Miharu, was the absolute best. During the drives between locations, she shared many stories and background information about culture and lifestyle. Some of the stories were so funny! If you're looking for a tour out of the big cities and more relaxed, this is the one for you. Be prepared for a lot of walking, but it is so worth it!

I've been to Japan a couple of times but this itinerary covers a lot of places that a typical visitor would not visit given the locations and lack of transportation to the areas. The overall tour was great. Miharu, our tour guide, and Izawa, our driver, were wonderful. Miharu was very prepared, punctual, and informative. The both really went above and beyond to guide us each step of the way and did more than what most tour guides I've met would have done. For instance, taking the group out to grab dinner or walking in the city after dinner. Making an effort for us to be on schedule but also changing itineraries around to make the most of our scenic views, such as the sunset, was absolutely amazing. That takes an export guide to plan. The places on the itinerary was fantastic. I love all the shrines, gardens, and unique modern twist of the museums. The food was delicious too, there was a lot to eat.

One of the best tours I have been on. Our guide, Ms. Kim Kita was so informative, so professional and was super pleasant to be on the tour with. Really enjoyed her stories and her passion. My daughter really loved being on the tour as well. Our driver Mr. Nakayama was so professional and so pleasant. Both very hardworking and really appreciated their hospitality. Thank you again

The overall tour experience is really good. I enjoyed it very much and will take 2nd tour when I get chance.
