Comparison with Our Competitors
Why Japan-China Trip and not China-Japan?
Many other travel agencies offer China-Japan itineraries, but we go to Japan first and then China. Why? Compared with China section, the Japan tour is relatively tough. You should be full of energy and excitement when you just start a trip, so we put Japan first, and then China in the latter half of the trip, when your physical strength is usually reduced and want a relaxed and comfortable pace.

Private car and taxi services are expensive in Japan, leading most guests to choose public transport, so there will be many places where you’ll need to carry your own luggage to walk, go up and down stairs, or get on and off the trains. It would be relatively easy in Japan with light luggage when you just set off. Considering that you may purchase some local specialties or souvenirs as the trip progresses, which will cause your luggage to become heavier and heavier, we have thoughtfully put China after Japan, where you could enjoy a private car with driver, point-to-point transfer, and luggage porter service, all in ease and relaxation. We always stand in your shoes and care about every practical detail of your experience.
Why did we make a price breakdown for you?

In our price table, you can see that we have listed the prices of the Japan part and the China part separately - the 6-day Japan tour is much more expensive than the 10-day China tour! Not to mention that at the listed prices, you can only use public transport in Japan, while in China you can enjoy private guide and private car with driver. This is mainly due to Japan’s high labor costs.

We have kindly done a breakdown, so that you can have a clear idea to decide how many days to stay in each country according to your budget. In fact, except the Mount Fuji, almost every attraction you visit in Japan can be found in China at a similar or higher level, as the East Asian culture has the same root. For a cheaper, higher-quality tour, just consider shortening your time in Japan and extending your stay in China. Feel free to contact us to customize an itinerary for you.
