Classic Small Group Tours

Forgo the private coach and explore Japan the way the locals do – via Japan’s famously efficient and clean public transportation system. |

Our Japan Classic Small Group Tours allow you to enjoy Japanese culture firsthand in the intimacy of a small group. The maximum group size is 12 guests, which enables you to travel by public transportation, such as by train, subway, taxi, ferry or local bus. Walking the streets and taking the local trains will allow you to interact more with the locals and appreciate what everyday life in Japan is like. Each city will feature an expert local guide who will be able to share in-depth information on the featured attractions and sites, and provide assistance or recommendations if needed prior to your free time. As our guides are local experts and residents of the city or region you are visiting, they do not always accompany the group when traveling between cities. Japan Walking Tours generally stay at least 2 nights in each city, allowing you to truly soak in the sights and surroundings. All hotels will be centrally located near attractions and are within a 5 to 10-minute walk from nearby stations. These tours are ideal for travelers who want to tour Japan in a small group but at a more budget-friendly rate. The tours are also great for those looking for a more active tour as you may be walking anywhere from 3 to 5 miles a day, in addition to some free time. Take your time exploring Japan, interacting with the locals, and immersing yourself in the rich culture the land is known for. Read Less
