Why Us?

'Forever grateful. Your love of Japan shines through.'

‘The holiday of a lifetime’.  Why should anyone who travels all the way to Japan expect less? Rather than guiding yourself (pretty easy in Japan these days), we believe that expertly guided small groups are best for our clients, is a sustainable form of tourism, and the best way to understand Japanese culture.

Why Hike Japan? Well, we’re passionate about travel and very good at what we do. With 17 years experience as Japan specialists, our real strengths are in our brilliantly crafted itineraries and our guides. Highly qualified, and with knowledge, many years experience, and humour, our guides really know their stuff when it comes to managing groups, be it in the urban jungles of Japan, on country paths, or in the mountains.
