Our Japan by Rail Private Journeys are designed for those who want to travel Japan at their own pace and interests at an affordable price. A private journey to Japan can be expensive. For a small group of 2 people (or a group smaller than 8 people), public transportation is the most cost efficient way to travel Japan. Japan has the world's most convenient public transportation system. Depending on the cities and area, trains cover all transportation needs. Japan's trains are spotless, quiet, and always on time. However, there is a lot of walking involved if you travel by train since some attractions are far from the station. Luggage handling can also be a potential problem, however, as Japan specialists, we know how to make your travels as smooth as possible.
Our Japan by Rail Private Journeys feature carefully chosen, centrally located hotel accommodations near stations and sights. This is convenient for exploring the city without hassle as you travel with our private guides by public transportation.

Our tour was phenomenal. Everything was well planned, with even small details taken care of…like including maps and reserved train seats.

Where do I start? In short, this tour was perfect. Everything, from the itinerary to the choice of hotels, to the travel arrangements, to the quality of tour guides, was flawless. We were blown away by how seamless everything was and how easy it was to get around. The attention to detail paid by the AJT staff was world-class and exceeded anything that we have ever experienced. My wife and I are both seasoned luxury tourists (having visited 42 countries together) and this was maybe our best travel experience, ever.

Our honeymoon was everything we could have dreamed of and so much more. The itinerary was fantastic as were our guides and every location we stayed.

The tour was fantastic! We saw peak cherry blossoms and saw amazing sites in 5 different cities. Everything went smoothly - all of the transportation was seamless and we were able to see a huge portion of the island in 14 days due to how efficient the tour was organized. I highly recommend the tour for anyone who is nervous about traveling to Japan because they aren't personally familiar with the country/culture - AJT makes it so easy to just enjoy the trip! We especially enjoyed our guides Marta (Takayma/Shirwakaga-Go), TK (our second Tokyo and Hakone guide) as well as our Hiroshima and Kyoto guides
