Thank you for considering Boutique Japan to help you plan your custom trip to Japan! Before reaching out to us, please make sure to read the below as it contains important information about our services.
We love working with travelers from around the world, but please keep in mind that we are a small, independent company and simply cannot help everyone who reaches out to us.
As demand is always high for Japan’s most unique hotels and ryokans (and the best local guides and experts), we typically suggest planning nine to twelve months in advance, particularly for peak seasons such as spring and fall.
Due to overwhelming demand, we are fully booked for the next several months, and can only consider inquiries for trips taking place in December 2023 and later. Because our team of Japan specialists is small, there are times when we cannot assist even if your travel dates align with our general availability.

My wife Alison and I found Boutique Japan while researching and planning our 20th anniversary trip. We are experienced travelers, but between busy work lives and kids, it had been a while since we had the chance to take a special trip together alone. We have wide-ranging interests and from the beginning realized that our… Read More

My experience with Boutique Japan couldn’t have been any better. From my initial conversation with Andres, through the back-and-forth about the itinerary with Piper, to the last-minute changes because of a typhoon hitting Japan, they were well-informed, thorough and responded quickly to questions and requests. They really listened when my husband and I described the… Read More
