If you’re ready to begin planning your Japan trip, we’d love to help.

We typically require at least 4-6 months of lead time. For peak seasons such as spring and fall, we strongly suggest planning 9-12 months in advance.

As a small team of Japan specialists, our availability fluctuates slightly from month to month, thanks to our low-volume approach to trip-planning and Japan’s popularity (advance booking is essential for unique hotels and ryokans, and the best local guides and experts).
