Japanese Lodging, Private Tours, and Sample Itineraries

Hoshinoya Kyoto

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. A five star ryokan or hotel in Japan is in a completely different league than similarly-rated hotels elsewhere. Privacy, a Japanese standard of hospitality, and a vision of beauty are foregone conclusions. This is a window into a culture that values beauty in perfection.

What Our Clients Are Saying!

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.

Japan Ryokan

We LOVED Japan. The Ryokan was just amazing. Kyoto was too. Tokyo....All of it. The Samurai class was awesome. The Ninja class was out of control cool. We were just blown away by everything. I am so in awe of the culture and the thoughtfulness of everyone there, really. I totally loved the Tea Ceremony. It was so interesting to learn about it and so great that they just told us what to do and we didn't feel awkward at all--and that's saying a lot for my tween daughter, actually. I just wanted to say thank you again--it wouldn't have happened like it did without you.
