How to read the Tour Calender

The calendar is easy to use: just choose your dates to show the dates & times that departure is possible, and the duration that is possible.

Important: Destination choices & activity options vary depending on the season, the local weather, and also the actual amount of time you have for the tour, the pace that you are willing to go, etc.
We always let you know what we recommend & whether or not an alteration is necessary.

Tattoos are OK! 

All of our tours are to destinations in nature and the countryside where tattoos are not a problem. In fact, at some of the destinations you may see some real Japanese style tattoos!

Rates depend on:

  • The actual number of participants
  • Your preference for a private tour
  • Your accommodation preference
    (camping in tents vs. staying at Japanese inns) 

OK, next!
Use the Tour Calendar link in the menu at the top of this page to search for various trips available during the dates that you will be in the Osaka & Kyoto area.
