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.

Japan Private Custom Tour

11/8/2022 - 11/18/2022 / 2022-11-27   

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.

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.

It was truly amazing. This was my first time in Japan, and I would absolutely recommend anyone wanting to visit to go with AJT. The staff was patient accommodating every step of the way when planning the tour. We had 3 guides during our tour as we traveled through different cities, and all of them were great! They helped make the trip quite memorable. I would not hesitate to book a tour with AJT in the future.
