Japanese Lodging, Private Tours, and Sample Itineraries


Japanese Ryokans and Hotels

One of the best ways to experience everything Japanese culture has to offer is by staying in a traditional Japanese inn, or ryokan. During a stay in one of our exquisite ryokans, you will be pampered with incredible Japanese cuisine, beautiful traditional architecture and decor, and gracious service. Japan's modern hotels are also some of the world's best, combining high-end amenities with world-famous Japanese service. Japan's hotels feature futuristic design, luxurious amenities, and memorable service.

Custom Private Guided Tours

Although there is nothing like exploring a new country on your own, the opportunity to spend time with our professional guides provides authentic cultural insight and will show you a Japan that would otherwise remain under the surface. We help you create an itinerary that combines your interests with our expertise. Explore Japan's bustling cities and its laid back fishing villages, cycle through Kyoto's old alleyways, or hike in the lush mountains of Japan's countryside - we work with expert guides in all aspects of Japanese culture.

What Our Clients Are Saying!

Custom Japan Tour

My sister and I had a wonderful birthday trip to Japan, which was expertly crafted by Laura at Global Basecamps. She listened to our interests, questions, and requests, then got creative with excellent suggestions, perfect and varied accommodations, necessary reservations, and thoughtfully detailed instructions. She even sent a birthday cake to our ryokan in Takayama, and alerted our other accommodations to the occasion.

I did not know what to expect from a travel agent, as I usually arrange my own trips, but Global Basecamps did an impressive job of creating the perfect trip that was easy, exciting, well-informed, and on our budget.

Custom Japan Trip

The trip was fantastic - we already can't wait for our next one. Our friends weren't sure a travel agent was worth it, and by the end they were hailing Andres dedication, insight, and hard work. Andres was a great person to bounce ideas and question off of, especially obscure questions that you just can't find on the internet. He was also an incredible convenience when booking and making arrangements. On top of that, when we had a couple "mid-trip" questions/minor emergencies Andres' responses were quick and helpful. Global Basecamps met or surpassed all our expectations.
