Japan Destination Information

  • One of the world's most exciting cities, Tokyo offers incredible shopping, colorful and unique fashion, fascinating museums, an exciting nightlife, beautiful parks and gardens, and much more.
  • Kyoto, the cultural heart of Japan, contains an enthralling mix of ancient Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, Japanese gardens, and World Heritage sites, blended with all the features of modern Japan.
  • On a clear day, Hakone offers clear views of Mt. Fuji, and no matter what you'll find soothing hot springs, beautiful, lush hillsides, and a charming tourist circuit including a toy train, a gondola ride, and a cruise on Lake Ashi.
  • The former capital Nara, just outside of Kyoto, is famous for its highly unique deer park, the great Buddha, and the Todaiji Temple, which can all be included in a one-day trip.
  • The climbing season for Mt. Fuji peaks in July and August, when there is no snow and public transportation is easy and frequent. Young and old can climb Mt. Fuji, and the best time to go is at night so that your arrival on top coincides with sunrise.
  • Takayama is a traditionally preserved town in a mountainous region of Japan, and holds one of Japan’s main attractions: the Takayama festival, which takes place in Spring and Autumn.
  • The tropical islands of Okinawa are Japan's Hawaii, famous for their laid back population, healthy lifestyle, delicious food, and pristine beaches.
  • The northernmost Japanese island of Hokkaido offers skiing and snowboarding in winter, unrivaled scenery in summer, and contains the amazing Shiretoko national park.
  • Perfect day trips from Tokyo, the former capitals Kamakura and Nikko offer wonderful mixes of history, culture, and natural beauty.

Client Testimonials

Custom New Zealand and Australia Adventure
Our travel specialist at Global Basecamps came to our rescue when our tour company cancelled our tours to New Zealand and Australia. We had already booked our flights through another company so we desperately needed to replace the tours we had scheduled. She was able to do just that! She was professional, efficient and responded to all of our questions immediately. Our tours were as wonderful as we had hoped they would be and our hotels were first class. Global Basecamps will be our first choice for future trips and we would highly recommend their outstanding customer service to any traveler.

I recently booked a trip to Chile through Global Basecamps and could not have been more satisfied. All connections and activities were delivered without problems and the service provided was excellent ... I would certainly use this company in the future.
