Heading to Japan? Want to Find the Best Japan Tours for 2021-2022? Read This.

Japan is an awesome place to visit, however due to the language barrier it can be a bit more complicated to work out your trip than many other destinations.  For many people the option to book a package tour is attractive as you only need to make one booking rather than many, and you also usually have the benefit of the tour being escorted so you don’t need to work everything out by yourself.

With that philosophy in mind I have put together a detailed article on how to find the right tour to suit you for travel, which includes overviews for some of the major reputable tour operators in Japan.  Most Japan tours use the extremely good Japan Rail or JR shinkansen or bullet train system.

Note that COVID19 has caused access restrictions and some attractions are closed, so ensure you check current status before making your booking

Best Japan Tours Using Tour Radar for 2021 – 2022

The best option to find the package tour which will best fit your needs in 2018 is to use the Tour Radar booking site.  Tour Radar is a great site which has details of tours from over 28 tour companies which operate in Japan.

How to Find Your Tour Using Tour Radar


After you click through, on the left hand side is the filter bar where you can select your specific travel dates, your age range, travel style, regions of Japan you would like to visit, your preferred starting an ending location plus a few more options.  There is also a filter option to see both early bird and last minute deals!

How to Book Your Tour Using Tour Radar

When you find a tour of Japan which meets your preferences, you can then go ahead and book directly through the Tour Radar website and obtain an instant confirmation.  To confirm your booking you will have to pay a deposit of $250 (the amount varies slightly depending on your country of origin) with your final payment for the balance of the tour cost being due 30-60 days prior to departure,  The final payment is paid automatically from the credit card you used to pay for your deposit.  The specific date for final payment will be provided after you have confirmed your booking.

What If You Need to Cancel Your Tour Radar Booking?

An important question is what happens if you need to cancel your tour after you have already paid the deposit or final balance?  Each Tour Radar booking is made using the specific terms and conditions of the tour company.  Before you book I recommend that you read the terms and conditions so that you understand the key dates that you can cancel and still receive some or all of your money back.
