Custom Group Travel
Undeniably, no other travel destination excites students and teachers like Japan. It is the perfect student travel destination: diverse, safe,
clean, and surprisingly affordable.
Japan is known for being expensive, but that is a misconception based on the quality of Japan's food and housing. As in all countries, the type of accommodation and food you eat affect your budget.
A student trip to Japan can be quite reasonable, comparable to trips to Europe and America.
Japan has four distinct seasons, each with its own characteristic beauty. In spring, flowers begin to bloom and the country is covered in cherry
blossoms. In summer, the hot weather is perfect for water sports.
Autumn brings scarlet and gold leaves and spectacular mountain views. In winter, there is snow in parts of Japan and residents ski and participate in winter sports. Whatever the weather, there are scenic landscapes to enjoy.
Japan is one of the most developed countries in the world, with cutting edge technology and engineering.
At the same time, it is a treasure trove of traditional culture, architecture, and art, with 11 World Heritage Sites.
Japan is also a force in popular culture, a leader in animation, fashion, and entertainment.
Japan's advanced transportation network makes traveling quick, convenient, and comfortable.
The different regions of Japan are all connected by air, rail, or highway. For a thrilling adventure, students can ride a bullet train and experience what it means to be “faster than a speeding bullet.
Japan boasts a wide variety of accommodations, from traditional Japanese inns to five star hotels.
One of the pleasures of visiting Japan is its rich culinary tradition.
Although you can eat food from all over the world, you will find that Japanese cuisine is delicious and varied.
Try authentic sushi and tempura, or, for the budget conscious, sample creative dishes like Japanese pancakes (Okonomiyaki) and rice and beef bowls (Gyudon). With such diversity in housing and food, there is something for every taste and budget.
Japan is a very safe country for students to visit since it has a low crime rate and advanced international communication and medical care. It is common for female students to walk around at night alone.
As a part of their education, all Japanese students are required to study English.
Although all locals have studied English for at least three years, most study upwards of six years.
If you need information in Japan, you will have no problem being able to communicate in English. Some of the Japanese may be shy or may not be fluent, but they are hospitable people and eager to help.
Although Japan has a reputation for being expensive, the variety of available accommodations and student discounts on transportation and sightseeing makes this destination affordable for even the most budget conscious tourist.
No other country interests students more than Japan. Renowned for its cleanliness, safety, and efficiency, Japan is the ideal destination for students. It has the added advantage of having a wide variety of accommodations and types of food, making it affordable on a student budget.

We can arrange school visits and meetings with local educators and administrators.

There were 9 of us in this custom tour to visit Osaka, Kyoto,Kobe, Hiroshima, Hakone, and Tokyo. I cannot say enough about Mr. Kiyoshi Katsume of All Japan Tours who helped us put together our tour and was so patient and prompt in his responses to our numerous changes and questions in putting together our tour. Our tour guides in the cities were EXCELLENT, Very knowledgeable and patient with us. They worked overtime to be with us and help us... all with a smile. We loved the Marriott Hotel in Osaka and the Prince Hotels in Tokyo was older but so centrally located near Shin-Osaka station. Our breakfasts were included. We loved the Marriott Shin-Osaka buffet! We loved our bento cooking class in Kyoto where we learned to make chicken, Musubis, japanese egg, nishime. We loved Hiroshima and Meiji Shrine.

What made this tour awesome for us was definitely our tour guide, Ai Orikane. Also our driver, Tanaka-san was especially friendly, extremely helpful and flexible. Ai was very flexible and resourceful, making our suddenly cancelled visit to Puroland into a happy day by giving us alternative things to do that we enjoyed. She is a very professional, friendly and intelligent guide, who definitely made our trip wonderful. We couldn't have imagined having any other tour guide with us. We would definitely recommend AJT and especially Ai as the tour guide to anyone we know who will be travelling to Japan and needs a tour and/or guide.

Kim was a terrific tour leader! She was so pleasant ....always smiling and trying to accommodate us. Nagi our first driver in Kyushu was also excellent. He always greeted us and made eye contact. He also kept the bus so clean. Loved the variety of places we visited ...sake factory, crane park, ice cream making, flower fields, oldest temple, etc. The meals were delicious, but could have used a little more variety. Too many kaiseki meals in a row. Would have loved more street food, ramen, udon for instance.

Our guide Kim was nothing short of fantastic. She was one of the most pleasant and knowledgable people I have ever met. Please tell her how much we appreciate her.

with so many dietary restriction in our group, you have managed to do wonderful job except for confusion on 2nd and 3rd day. Best driver and guide we had who went out of their way to make us comfortable. Mr Kioshi Katsume was always available and answered all questions throughout the booking process. This was my 56th country but never received such a good service before.

The All Japan Tour for the Kaneda tour was a "Magical
Tour"! Your preparation and organization or this tour
was superb! The most impressive part of my trip was
the portrait of an amazing people and culture revealed
to us by Miharu who explained what we would see -
took us to see it - then cemented those observations
after the sightings. IT felt like a true Geisha explaining
what we seeing and giving us an understanding as to
why we were seeing this. For example the explanation
that sky scrapers near the Imperial Palace lacked
Windows on the top floor to peer into the emperor's
I felt I saw a side of Japan and Japanese culture that
98% of visitors to Japan never are privy to. I have a
huge respect for the way Japanese people conduct and
respect their life and other human life.
Thank you for this "Magical" tour!
P.S. 1. We did great at the Kawagoe festival and back to Tokyo. 2. I only got about 2200 pictures to remember this tour- Including 1 of Fujiyama.

We were all extremely satisfied with our itinerary,
meals, and hotels. I had been to Japan many times
and had seen most of the sights; but, found that every
day, I experienced something new and amazing. Our
guide, Miharu was extremely organized, informative,
and hysterical! She made the time between
destinations, which were sometimes more than 2
hours, go by so quickly. Our driver, Mr. Nakano was
excellent. He and Miharu coordinated transfers
perfectly. As an example, finding our way back from
the Kawagoe Festival to the hotel could have been very
exhausting and confusing. However, they thought of an
alternative plan and we found the coach waiting for us
as soon as we exited the train station. Amazing!
Many of us are tea lovers so we especially enjoyed our visit to the Uji tea farm. It was beautiful and we found the tea farmer's guided tour to be very informative. We all agreed that the lunch we had in Uji was our favorite. Our meal was presented in a bento box with drawers filled with incredibly beautiful delicacies.
I will highly recommend AJT to all our friends and will certainly consider having you assist us with future travels to Japan.

My husband and I had an amazing time; it was the best
escorted tour we have ever taken. There was a lot of
attention to detail and we were very well taken care of.
We couldn’t have asked for a better guide and driver
than Miharu and Mr. Nakano. The hotels were
excellent, the meals were amazing and the tours were
well chosen. It was my fourth trip to Japan and my
husband’s first time and we are ready to go back.
Thank you so much for organizing such a wonderful trip for us. We hope to be contacting you again in the near future for another memorable trip.

Just returned from the amazing trip of Japan.
The trip was great, without any glitches.
Tour guide was Mr Ito was very good and driver Yamado was good.
Most hotels were good.
Kyoto hotel had A C issues.
Most important Japan was amazingly beautiful. People were nice, places were memorable. In spite of two Typhoons, weather was fine for most parts.
Thank you for arranging this trip.

I just want to tell you what a delight Kim Kida is and how she made our trip recently the best ever. She is always happy, courteous, sensitive and aware of her guests needs, while keeping on schedule and helping everyone to keep to the schedule as well. She is very knowledgeable and if she doesn’t know the answer to a question, she researches it until she finds the answer. She goes above and beyond and we will be recommending her and All Japan Tours to everyone we meet. Fantastic trip thanks to her!!!

I would like to express my thanks on
behalf of the Yamanaka Family Trip to
Japan. Everything was planned out
The points of interest during our stay was just right. My father-in-law seemed to have been satisfied, especially riding the Shinkansen.
Our personal tour escort Yuka from Shinshu Travel was very knowledgable and spoke English well. During our short time with her, we seemed to have bonded with her. She even made last minute changes to our meals cause we had some that did not eat seafood.
Having a member in a wheel chair took a little effort but Yuka and our driver Fukumoto-san took extra care and patience making sure we were all comfortable.
This was most probably the first and last trip for our father and mother. But for us, the younger generation, we will most likely go to Japan again. The experience with your tour and the ground people handling in Japan (Yuka & Fukumoto-san) made us want to go again.
Once again, thank you for your patience too in creating this personal tour for our family.

I just wanted to let you know that my husband, Thom, and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Japan that you organized. Everything was great. We had no problems getting around and the tour guides were wonderful. They were very organized and friendly. The hotels were also very nice and convenient. The trek up Mt. Fugi was a bit harder than we expected but we persevered and made it. The guides were helpful and patient. We truly enjoyed the Japanese cultural experience and would definitely recommend your tour company. Thanks so much,

On behalf of Purple Dragon, I would like to thank you for a wonderful and memorable trip to Japan. It was such a beautiful, lovely, inspiring trip thanks to you and our wonderful tour guide, Miharu San who we came to love as a friend. Because our trip was so memorable, we plan on returning within the next year. Japan is a beautiful country with a rich culture we admire. We would also like to express our humble gratitude for arranging the trip to the Dai Nippon Botuko Kai for our martial arts group, and we ask that our thanks be extended to the Botudo Kai for allowing us to train in their prestigious dojo as it was greatly appreciated and will be a treasured memory no one will ever forgot. Thank you again, and we look forward to traveling to Japan again in the future.
