Sign up as individual travellers and leave as lifelong friends on an Oku Japan small-group guided tour. With a maximum of 13 people in any group, our tours ensure you get the full attention of your local guide who themselves share a passion for Japan. Whether it’s traditions, food, society or history, learn the ins and outs together with your fellow travellers and the assistance of our fully-licensed, bilingual guides.
Steering clear of the on-the-bus, off-the-bus style of travel of yesteryear, our carefully crafted itineraries encourage you to get up close and personal with Japan; travelling as the locals do with the help of public transportation and developing connections with the people you meet along the way. Transporting luggage is a breeze with Japan’s hands-free delivery service, making more time for you to enjoy the sights.
Our small-group guided tours depart on fixed dates throughout the year carefully selected to offer the best experience for the season. But if our dates don’t match your schedule then let us know and we can work on a private departure that better fits your plans. Whether joining a fixed departure, or creating your own with your friends, travelling with one of our guides is a great way to discover the deeper side of Japan.
A number of our guided tours are available for travel this autumn. Please see below for eligible tours. Wondering what steps you need to take to come to Japan? We've got you covered with details, just click the button below.
