Classic Japan, glorious holiday experience

InsideJapan’s Classic Japan tour was everything we could have hoped for and more. Our tour leader made it all the better and being in a small group 14 was perfect, we all got along with each other as well, having a lot of fun together.

InsideJapan were very helpful and knowledgeable. The holiday had been well thought out with the choice of hotels and modes of transport (local and national) used. We can think of nothing negative to say about this holiday.

The whole experience of travelling through Japan and seeing a wide cross section of towns and cities was amazing.

I went on the Classic Japan tour supplied by InsideJapan Tours. The 12 day tour covered large cities such as Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka as well as some smaller ones such as Hakone, Takayama and up into the mountains in Kamikochi. This gave a wide experience of the different histories and cultures in these different areas. The tour guide was excellent being knowledgeable about Japanese history as well as 21st Century culture and behaviour in Japanese ...

This gave a wide experience of the different histories and cultures in these different areas. The tour guide was excellent being knowledgeable about Japanese history as well as 21st Century culture and behaviour in Japanese society. Travelling around by train, coach and mountain railways was excellent. Everything worked like clockwork and everywhere was spotlessly clean. The staff were invariably helpful and friendly.

I found InsideJapan Tours to be excellent right through from initial contact through to the final tour. Of all the companies I initially contacted, they were the only ones to actually phone me up to talk in detail about what sort of holiday I was looking for. The tour guide was excellent throughout. Finally, a couple of days after my return to the UK, someone from the company phoned me up to ask how the holiday had been.

Excellent small group tour to the main sites on Honshu, Japan.

We spent 2 weeks in a small group (13) with a full time guide, followed by 4 days independent travel organised by the tour company. The guide was outstanding; he was very well informed, enthusiastic, efficient and excellent company. The tour extension was made very easy with extremely detailed guidance notes. We visited Tokyo, Hakone, Osaka, Hiroshima and Miyajima, Kyoto, Nara, Takayama, Kamikochi and the Nakasendo Way.

Inside Japan was highly recommended by a number of friends and lived up to expectations; they provided excellent pre-tour advice and information. The full time guide provided was first class and the instructions for the unaccompanied 4 day extension were very detailed and informative.

Everything about this tour is arranged to give you the widest range of experiences in the time allowed.

A whirlwind tour of some of the highlights of Japan. Travelling from Tokyo to Hakone. Hakone to Osaka. Osaka to Kyoto. Kyoto to Takayama. Takayama to Kamikochi. Kamikochi back to Tokyo. Everything about this tour is arranged to give you the widest range of experiences in the time allowed. Tokyo is a bustling city where I experienced an epic fireworks festival, Meji Shrine, amazing vegan food and Japanese life on the Yamanote Line. Hakone was relaxing and the open air art museum was one of the best museums I have ever visited and features amazing landscape views equal in beauty to the art. Osaka is a fun city that has a traditional castle which is a great example of castle architecture. The centre of town has a great energy to it and looks great at night all lit up. Kyoto is beautiful, traditional and is the Japan most people think of. Its has an abundance of temples and shrines my favourite of which is Fushimi Inari. Takayama is a sleepy town with a lovely relaxed vibe. It's traditional streets and open air market are great to explore. If you want a bit of fun in the evening head to Redhill bar. Kamikochi is the location of the so called Japanese Alps. The scenery is dynamic and breathtaking. If you love hiking and relaxing this is the place to go. I cannot recommend this trip enough if you are thinking of visiting Japan.

Inside Japan take all the hastle out of travelling around Japan. From arranging airport transfers and Japan Rail Passes. Inside Japan is an excellent company that specialises in creating a personal unforgettable experience. The Tour Leaders are knowledgable and help with every aspect of the tour. They do not walk around with a flag or an umbrella. This means you get a more intimate and personalised experience.
