Luxury Tours Japan believes that travel is fundamentally about immersing yourself in the culture of a destination and discovering the country from within.
Our trips are based on a wide range of cultural experiences which allow the curious-minded traveler to engage first-hand with the everyday practitioners of Japan’s arts and crafts – its community of dedicated makers, artisans and performers – and, through them, discover Japan’s rich cultural and natural heritage.
Our trips focus less on destinations and sights, and more on immersive cultural experiences which we believe will deliver a more authentic Japan experience and generate powerful insights and real connections with the people of Japan.
To us, this is what “luxury” is about. The ability to have the time and opportunity to expose yourself to culture and art and somehow be changed or grow by the experience. It does not mean simply staying at luxury 5-star hotels or dining at Michelin-starred restaurants. To us, it does mean having unique one-on-one experiences with skilled local practitioners to gain insights into their artform or exquisite craftmanship. Or staying at accommodation which offers something truly authentic and unique. Or eating at restaurants where there’s an unwavering commitment to authenticity and quality, regardless of whether it’s a tiny backstreet restaurant or a refined, centuries-old Kyoto ryotei.
We would love you to discover Japan with us.
