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

Bangkok's Floating Markets
We LOVED our trip! It was wonderful, and we will ABSOLUTELY use Global Basecamps again. Everything you set up went off without a hitch. Our hotels were top notch, especially the Chedi in Chiang Mai. Truly outstanding. Every excursion was exciting and/or interesting. We loved our guides, especially Toto in Bangkok. All of the connections and transports were on time and efficient. All the cabs were clean and comfortable. I honestly have no idea what you could have done better. Our time was jam packed with fun and adventure. The hotels and guides were perfection. The price was reasonable. Well done!!

Trekking Mt. Kilimanjaro
My trip was awesome! I trekked Mt. Kilimanjaro and what an experience! Everyday it either rained--drops as big as dinner plates--snowed, hailed, ice storm--the night we made it to the summit--the wind blew and generally we had cold weather, but I made it to the summit! That is what my goal was and the weather wasn't going to stop me. The guides were exceptional--Ronald. He told me he would get me to the summit and he did! The support staff were wonderful and the cook--excellent! He even had a cake for me at the end of the trek. It was a perfect trip--memories for a lifetime. Thanks to Meagan for all the planning she did to make my trip exceptional.
