COLETTE STUBBINGS Living a transitory lifestyle whenever I’ve had the means to do so has become a source of personal inspiration, mindfulness, growth and exchange. Convinced there is beauty in all things / people / places, I’m always anticipating the sights and sounds of any place I drift to next! Read More
Pam Schewe Pam spent many years working in radio broadcasting in Vancouver but decided that instead of working in order to travel, she would be much happier traveling for work. The only real difference between the two careers is that now she can tell immediately when her jokes are not funny. “Is this mic on…??” Read More
Chris Tripodi I travel because it is the most interesting thing I can think of doing between meals. The magic and the challenge of this job is seeing the world itself as the tour with several smaller journeys along the way. I enjoy that time at the end of one trip, before the start of a new one, where the sadness of leaving one place mixes with the excitement of approaching another. Read More
Jonathan Hodgson Jonathan has lived much of his life dedicated to the idea that he would rather have a wealth of experiences than a wealth of riches. Having taken up a nomadic lifestyle shortly after finishing his undergraduate degree, he has been on the move on and off over the last 25+ years. The wanderlust has taken him to basing himself in places such as Scotland, Australia and Uzbekistan, and to visiting many more locations around our planet. Now (sort of) settled in Vancouver with his wonderful (and patient) family, he still loves the idea of having the world as his office and always enjoys trying to capture the essence of the locations he travels and tours in with his photography.

Victor Romagnoli I love the excitement of getting up each morning on a tour and not knowing exactly how a day will unfold. It keeps me on my toes so to speak, and adds a breath of excitement to each day on tour. With almost 30 years of tour leading under my belt, I thank all of you for being a part of this exciting journey. Read More

Where to Go
Where To Go In Japan
Trek through ancient forest to find hidden temples in Mt. Haguro, feast on sushi and sake in Tokyo, learn about Japan’s heartbreaking past in Hiroshima, and drift through the cobbled streets and sleepy temples of Kyoto. Our Japan tours are the ultimate way to enjoy the wonders and mysteries of Japan, with the added bonus of seeing a few lesser-known escapes.
FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you need a visa to travel to Japan?
Citizens from the UK, Ireland, and certain other European countries can stay in Japan for up to 90 days without a visa, and this stay can be extended for an extra three months. Citizens from the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand can also stay for up to 90 days without a visa, but this stay is not extendable and you must have a return air ticket.
Is Japan safe?
Overall, Japan is a very safe country for travellers. Crime levels in Japan are low and it’s generally safe to walk around at night and take public transport, although you should take the same precautions you would in your home country. Tokyo’s entertainment districts, including Roppongi and Kabuki-cho, are regarded as higher risk areas for crime (especially at night) and there have been reports of foreign nationals being targets of drink-spiking, credit card fraud, robbery, and assault. While incidences of sexual assault are rare, women are advised to be cautious and exercise the same caution about being alone with a man as they would anywhere.
When is the best time to visit Japan?
The best time to visit Japan really depends on what you want to do during your trip. During summer (June-August), most of the country is generally humid and warm, making it a great time for trekking. Summer is also a great time to enjoy Japan’s colourful matsuri (festivals). To experience the beautiful cherry blossom season, time your visit between March and early April. The equally glorious but lesser-known plum blossoms can be seen during February. Arrive in autumn (October-late November) to see the forests explode with dazzling colours. In winter (December-February), visiting Japan can be a magical experience with the potential for snow and the attraction of warming up with a steamy onsen.
