Japan by Rail Private Journeys

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.

The tour was amazing! My family and I had a blast during the tour. One of the best features of the tour would have to be the flexibility. The tour guides accommodate to you extremely well and know the best food places during lunch. They try their best to help you even after the tour is finished and give so much free time to spend in the areas you decided to go to. We certainly would not have able to navigate Japan as efficiently without them.

The personal attention of our family's guides, Ms. Yoshika Morishima in the Kyoto area and Ms. Yoko Watanabe in the Tokyo area were excellent. They efficiently took us to the top sites, recommended the best places to eat, and shared interesting information about the sites we visited.
