Online consultation - Japanspecialist

Online Travel Consultancy

We help you plan the trip of a lifetime to Japan

After decades of designing bespoke trips to Japan, we are proud to launch our online travel consultancy service. Our mission is to give access to up-to-date information and expertise, even if you don't end up booking the trip with us.

Our online travel consultancy is for you if:

  • You want your holiday in Japan to be a one-of-a-kind experience, and prefer every aspect of it to be tailored to your needs.

  • You have a specific interest in culture, nature, or adventure travel and would like to have access to experiences that not everyone knows about.

  • You don’t have the time and patience to browse the internet for days or plan and prepare the trip yourself.

FAQ

It is for travellers who do not want to compromise when investing in the experience of a lifetime. If you are looking for an unforgettable trip tailored to your tastes and guidance to help you explore specific aspects of Japan, this service is for you.

Already having been to Japan, you know just how much it offers travellers. We can introduce you to some exclusive experiences to which not everyone has access. Alternatively, if you wish to create a specific style of trip that ticks certain boxes, this service is highly recommended for you.

We make highly personalised suggestions and strive to answer questions you may not even realise you should ask. Your travel consultant will have an unparalleled background in Japanese tourism and can provide you with the most up to date information, even regarding fast-moving topics such as Covid-19 restrictions.

After your consultation, you will receive a summary of everything discussed to review at your leisure. If you are satisfied with the proposal, we can arrange the whole trip for you or you can proceed to book everything yourself.

You are free to ask any questions which can help us create your dream trip to Japan. Ask your travel consultant about general subjects such as food, accommodation, itineraries, and transport, as well as more specialist areas such as etiquette and Japanese culture.

We advise preparing as many questions as you can in advance to make the most of your consultation. You can share those with your travel consultant in advance.

Japanspecialist is part of the JTB Corporation, the largest travel agency in Japan and one of the biggest in the world with over 100 years of experience in the industry.

All our travel consultants have been to Japan several times and have extensive knowledge of creating custom trips. In addition, their first-hand experience and network of local connections provide insights you won't get anywhere else. You can learn more about our consultants by visiting their profile pages above.

If you wish to ask more questions, you can book another consultation to discuss further. Alternatively, you can request a formal quotation so you can finalise the details for your trip together.

It will be an online consultation (via Zoom), where you have the full attention of your travel consultant for one hour.

When booking your consultation, you will be able to select a date and time that is most convenient to you.

You will receive an email with all the details on how to attend after you book the consultation.

Additionally, if your partner, family or friends want to join, they are more than welcome.

All our tours are tailor-made, including those on our website, which we can customise to your taste. If you would like to use one of those as a base to create your itinerary, please book a travel consultation then someone from our team will be happy to assist.
