The Ultimate Japan Trip



I’ve been traveling to Japan for more than a decade, exploring every nook and cranny of the country to the point where I can plan an amazing adventure in my sleep. But what if you’ve only got a few weeks—or days—to undertake a timeless Japan itinerary?

This is why you should hire to me to plan your trip to Japan for 2024 or 2025. When you purchase a customized Japan travel itinerary, I leverage my years of experience in Japan to create a trip you’ll never forget.

How would you like to stroll under sakura during cherry blossom season in Kyoto or Kanazawa? Hike an ancient trading route through the Japanese Alps? Ski award-winning slopes in snowy Hokkaido? Frolic amid fall foliage in Takayama or Shirakawa-go? See the other side of history in Hiroshima or Nagasaki? No matter where in Japan you want to explore, I’ll curate a Japan trip plan with experiences you’ll be talking about for years to come.

I can also optimize your free time on Japan business trips. I empowered a recent client to discover Kyoto and Osaka after a conference in Tokyo, and helped another reward her team with an unforgettable weekend at Japan’s most scenic onsen.

Whether you travel for business, pleasure or both, a custom Japan travel itinerary provides information and inspiration for any trip to Japan.

Transportation Consultation

The journey is just as important as the destination, particularly when that destination is as spectacular as Japan. If you’ve created the ultimate itinerary but need help with the logistical piece of it, don’t worry. From bullet trains, to long-distance buses, to rental cars and even transportation within cities, I’ll get you from point A to point B, and then some.
