Is this really Japan!?
In recent years there has been an increase in the number of foreign travelers visiting Japan.
Due to over tourism in areas such as Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka many of them seek to get away from the congested tourist areas and prefer to experience the traditional countryside of Japan.
To achieve this, we have created a day trip to experience living in the Japanese countryside.
When you participate in this trip, you can discover another Japan which you do not know, that is not in the guidebook.
Through participating in this trip, you will be able to uncover a new side of Japan that you won't find elsewhere. We use our expertise and familiarity with the local Tajima area and have prepared a unique course that is one of a kind. We hope that many visitors experience not only the famous tourist destinations in Japan, but also see the beautiful and amazing places that the countryside has to offer.
This plan has the following features :
1. Transportation by bus, which will allow you to experience living like the locals
2. Enjoy the serene and tourist free areas of the Japanese countryside.
3. An interpreter guide who is a local expert passionate about spreading their love for Tajima.
Through our tours you will discover another side of Japan that you have not experienced before. A beautiful unknown side of the Japanese countryside is waiting for you.
