What Makes Us Different?

Depth, Community, Rich Memories

Japan Travel is an expert on travel arrangements for Japan. Our unique business model, comprising a community of more than 10,000 contributors (as of Feb, 2016) which is centrally managed by our Type II licenced travel company in Tokyo, means that not only do we cover the entire country, but also that we can offer an unprecedented level of access to authentic Japan.

Our community includes about 2,000 long-term foreign residents living in Japan, who know their own neighborhoods in detail, as well as about 1,000 more bilingual Japanese. Together, both groups help translate the best parts of Japan into memorable experiences for the foreign traveler, and both want to see the country open up in a welcoming way to the rest of the world.
