Japan is a delightful country for touring. You can explore cities on your own, with a phrase book in hand, and you will find English speakers everywhere. For those wishing to see as much as possible and have English-speaking guides, there is a well developed infrastructure of organized "seat in coach" tours which operate on a daily basis. These can be arranged upon arrival in Tokyo. If you prefer to organize a private tour with guide, we are also able to provide these services. Costs for individualized tours are significantly higher.
