Most visitors to Japan hit up Kyoto's temples, Tokyo's shopping streets, and Osaka's food scene—but there's much more to this country than what you'll find in its cities. Soak in natural hot springs, hike through primeval forest, and spot wildlife on a pristine chain of islands with these under-the-radar suggestions.
Rediscover Tours focuses on high quality cultural trips through Japan where travelers can experience traditional and modern Japanese culture. We hire private local guides to take you to places that will interest you including must-see sights and places that only locals know about. We also encourage "sightseeing with your eyes open" this means that the pace is slower so you can have time to allow fate to lead the way.
We focus on a quality experience and our custom trips generally run from US$3,000 per person per week or more. Your travel expert will give you the exact per person price for your trip before requesting a deposit.
