Yes in Japan tours

Our original tours in English, French and Japanese introduce famous and little-known gems of Japan to foreign tourists, students and professionals as well as to Japanese locals. Why not join a short walking/cycling ecotour, cultural or spiritual tour starting at your hotel just after check-in to feel the area and immediately get travel tips? Or enjoy a 1-day private tour later to complement your visits, ask about surprising things, and go shopping with a translator/interpreter? Reserve early especially if you target the busy season of cherry blossoms :)
