Japan Roads is "People and Culture"
Our mission at Japan Roads is to provide a culturally-enriching
experience by meeting and getting to know the Japanese people and discovering
Japan's rich cultural heritage.
Slow-paced and In-depth
Japan Roads focuses on slow-paced tours, rather than offering you the typical Japanese package tour, where you visit two cities in one day. While the number of destinations is fewer, Japan Roads tours offer the chance and time to get to know the Japanese people and to experience the Japanese culture in-depth. In addition, Japan Roads tours will take you off the beaten track, to discover places most visitors would never see.
Varied Japanese-style Accommodations
Japan offers an array of accommodations. These accommodations include shukubo or Buddhist temple lodging, minshuku (a small Japanese inn), ryokan (a traditional Japanese inn), Western style hotels, or a home-stay in a Japanese home. By carefully choosing a variety of accommodations for your tour, Japan Roads aims to give you a deeper insight into life in Japan. Furthermore, the intimate accommodations will allow you to have close personal contact with the owners and staff of these places.
Varied Japanese Cuisine
Food is an essential part of Japanese culture. Japan Roads tours offer
you the chance to sample a large variety in types of food: from eating
with the local Japanese in small diners and trying homemade Japanese
meals to sampling full course seafood dinners or some of the refined
traditional Japanese cuisine.
