Comparison with Other Sellers
We are the Source Supplier with Cheapest Price.
Our Japan private tours are cheaper than most other sellers, and our private tours are even cheaper than their group tours. How can we achieve this? After reading our itinerary details, you will find that our service quality is top notch. We do everything we can to keep the costs down. We lower our gross margin down to just 6%, whereas most sellers are making more than 60%, which is ten times ours.
Flexible Airport-hotel Transfer to Save You Money
One thing that makes Japan different from other places is that the cost of airport pick-up and see-off service is much higher than expected, because of the high labor costs and the long distance of up to 70 km (43 mi). For two persons traveling together, a Tokyo airport pick-up costs USD 170 per person by guide and public transport, USD 150 per person by private car with driver and without guide, while USD 105 per person by shared shuttle with a boarding assistant, all of which are much higher than a taxi costing about USD 200 and carrying 4 people. Similarly, the drop-off service for two persons from downtown Osaka to Kansai Airport costs USD 120 per person by private car with driver, more expensive than a taxi, which costs around USD 150 per car. We won’t force you to take a guided pick-up or drop-off package as some other sellers do. Our travel experts decided to uncover all airport transportation costs for our valued guests, and let you make your own choice between our service and public transportation based on your number of people traveling. For more than 3 of you, simply take a taxi; for 1 or 2 people, the shared shuttle, airport limousine bus, and JR train are more economical options. If you are traveling with 7 or more people, it is more cost-effective to contact us to arrange a private van for you. You can see the details of different modes of transportation below.
Compact and Rich Schedule; No Half-day Tours
Compared with other sellers, you will find that our schedule is designed a little bit tight, especially in Tokyo and Kyoto, where we would arrange one or two more attractions every day than others. We don’t mean to rush you, but better understand what you are thinking – time is money! Our travel consultants will work closely with you to plan your itinerary, making every effort to allow you to visit more places for the same amount of money in the same time. We share your disdain for half-day trips that waste your time and money, because a secret in Japan is that the labor cost of a half-day tour guide and driver is almost the same as that of a full day tour. With that in mind, if you’re worried about the strain of your journey, you can ask for a full day of free time in the middle of your itinerary, depending on your physical condition, free and easy, without guides or high fees. Please feel free to contact our travel consultants if you want a free day, as all our itineraries can be customized for you.
No Trap of Optional Tours
Our itineraries are clearly described, without optional tours and hidden charge. We believe that optional tours are traps and tools for some sellers to make more money from their guests. As a decent and trustworthy travel company, we won’t arrange unnecessary items that waste money of our guests. We put ourselves in your shoes and save every penny for you.
Our Insights
Be sure to pack light, as international flights and Japan’s Shinkansen trains have restrictions on oversized luggage. A suitcase with total dimensions of no more than 160 cm can be carried directly on the train while a luggage with total dimensions between 160 and 250 cm requires a reservation. We kindly remind you that you need to walk with luggage if traveling by public transport from your hotel to the train station or airport, which would be difficult especially on some crowded and stepped roads. If you want to check your luggage and ship it to the next or third city, please tell our guide to arrange it for you and pay the delivery fee on site.
Currency Exchange
While the rail and bus ticket vending machines and most taxis in Tokyo accept credit cards, there are some places where you can only use cash. It is recommended that you exchange a proper amount of Japanese yen in your home country before you travel. If you haven’t done so and want to change money at the airport, please read this.

Automatic currency purchasing machine (24 hours) and banks (6:30-23:00) in Narita Airport:
Terminal 1: Central Bldg., 1st Floor (Arrivals); South Wing, 1st Floor (Arrivals)
Terminal 2: Main Bldg., 1st Floor (Arrivals)
Terminal3: Main Bldg., 2nd Floor; Main Bldg., 1st Floor

Japan Transportation in Brief
Taxis are expensive in Japan, and if you don’t mind paying extra, then a taxi or a private car is a good option. Public transportation such as rail and bus is well developed, convenient and affordable, which can save you travel costs. For getting from the airports to your hotel, there are many compromise options, such as shared shuttle and airport limousine bus, considering that you carry luggage and it is inconvenient to walk and transfer. Just choose according to your needs and budget.
Important Note
If you're getting from the Tokyo airports to the hotel on your own, and if you're using a mobile map to navigate, be sure to choose the right destination.
