Our Story

Everything has a story

Budding passion

Our company started small in a traditional Japanese house in the mountains of Kyoto, where we lived for several years. There was a classical appeal to the ancient capital of Japan that defied description; it instilled in us a strong sense of belonging and a burning desire to share. Before long, we were inspired to craft our first original travel adventures, and within the clay walls of our home were the seeds of our first headquarters.

Courting Japan

We lived a very unusual life for foreigners in Japan. Clad in traditional Japanese kimono almost everyday, we would take care of a small Buddhist temple, fix the roof tiles of our house and dry our tatami mats at the end of winter. And when nature calls out to our adventurous hearts, we would go out exploring hidden routes in the mountains.

This is just the beginning

Spreading the love

From our small beginnings, we slowly gained reputation as travelers started recognizing us for our sincere and exceptional service. Within a few years, we grew from a small company of only 2 guides to a leading travel operator, serving thousands of satisfied clients from 92 countries in the world every year. We have gathered a family of like-minded staff who share our passion and knowledge of Japan, and our travel programs are second to none. Today, the team continues our mission to offer you the very best that Japan has to offer.
