Private Tour Model Itineraries

Private Tours are great way to enjoy your holiday in Japan with your family and friends. It can be a completely tailor-made trip to suit your interests and preferences. However, it can be daunting to start from a completely blank canvas, and that is why we have created Private Tour Model Itineraries for you.

You can take the model itinerary as is, or combine or modify it to suit your needs. They are some great Extension Itineraries to add too, and they can also be added before or after joining our Small Group Tours.

Like our popular Small Group Tours, these itineraries are packed with unique and authentic experiences, Journey to the East way.

Let us arrange your private tour, and you will have an amazing holiday in Japan.

Had a fabulous time with a great group of people. I loved the country, the culture, the people and everything about the tour – hope to do another tour with JTTE – maybe Hokkaido or Kyushu next time

 This was my first trip with JTTE and already I am looking at the program for next year thinking about another one. I liked the fact that it was a small group, the organisation was spot on and the food everywhere was outstanding.
