Private Japan tours

Japan tours taken on a private basis require a degree of independence and sense of adventure. This is because, unlike travel in any other Far East country, the costs of vehicle hire, drivers and guides can be prohibitively high. Engaging the services of a private guide and driver on a tailor-made journey is not always feasible and, as a result, sightseeing and travel between cities may involve public transport or shared services that are not exclusive to Cox & Kings.

Furthermore, as English is not always spoken in areas away from the main tourist destinations, a degree of self-guiding may be required. A comprehensive information pack is provided before departure, with transport instructions and bilingual timetables, hotel addresses and maps, and a guide for each destination covering a wide range of topics from eating out to enjoying a hot spring bath.

Private travel provides an opportunity to discover a country at your own pace, tailored to your own requirements and interests. Here, we provide an itinerary as an example of the kind of journey you could take in Japan. This is just a sample: it can be adjusted to suit your needs, or we can help put together an itinerary entirely tailor-made for you – just call our dedicated team of Far East consultants.
