Browse Our Custom Private Tours of Japan

Japan has it all. Amid bright lights, daring modern architecture, and the pulsating energy of Tokyo, you’ll find the latest in technology, art, fashion, and high cuisine. To get away from it all, try a custom private tour of Japan to the crystalline waters of Okinawa Island or take in the rejuvenating mountain air atop sacred, snow-capped Mount Fuji. For a peek into Japan’s culture, stroll through fragrant cherry blossoms and delicate pagodas in one of Kyoto’s many Shintoist temples and sanctuaries. Whatever you’re looking for, Japan is at once surprising, serene, and spectacular. Backyard Travel offers custom private tours of Japan for every interest and travel plan. Our private tours and holidays include everything from Japan’s defining sights and unmissable cities to thematic excursions focusing on culture, nature, art, or cuisine.

What’s Special about Japan?

Separated from the continental mainland by the Sea of Japan, the Japanese take pride in their strong heritage and distinct character. With a diverse landscape and a complex cosmopolitan culture, this island of samurais and sci-fi cityscapes gives you a look into the past and future of Asia.



CHARACTER

In Japan, respect is a ritual and an obligation. The Japanese are very receptive and helpful with visitors, and service tends to be efficient and exceptional. The Japanese are also especially known for being hardworking, detailed, and punctual.



CLIMATE

From the icy north island of Hokkaido to the tropical beaches of southern Okinawa, the islands of Japan present a surprising variety of climates — from frigid to balmy. In this volcanic island chain, altitude can also lower temperatures substantially.



ENTERTAINMENT

Japan’s cosmopolitan cities offer everything from rustic sake bars to trendy nightclubs and a thriving live music scene. For more traditional entertainment, catch local acts like sumo wrestling and Kabuki theatre



CULTURE

Beyond Shinto Buddhism, origami, Rakugo storytelling, and sumo wrestling, Japan’s tremendous culture is known throughout the world. Japan, however, is also a global, cosmopolitan society, a country where edamame is served at baseball games.



LANGUAGE

Japanese is the official language of Japan and is spoken by the overwhelming majority of inhabitants. Some regional languages, such as the Ryukyuan languages and the Okinawan Japanese dialect, can be heard locally.



HISTORY

The millennial history of Japan stretches from warring island kingdoms and feudal samurai chieftains to 19th-century industrialization, WWII expansionism, and post-war occupation. Today Japan is one of the world’s leading economies and a center of global trade, culture, and technology.
