Spend the Day with a Travel Angel

Because Japan can still feel like a very distant country, it is sometimes difficult to go it alone on your Japanese adventure. 

Our Travel Angels (French-speaking and English-speaking) can accompany you for a private visit as you discover Japan for yourself. 

Thier intimate knowledge of Japan, its inhabitants, and its attractions will allow you to to fully discover what moves you most about Japan. 

Optimal Conditions to Discover Japan

Visit Tokyo or Kyoto with a private guide in order to optimise both your time and energy.

Avoid getting lost on the transportation system and looking at your map more than you look at the scenery around you. 

Our Travel Angels have been chosen for their kindness, their common sense, and their love of sharing their knowledeg about Japan. 


Why choose a Japan Experience Private Guide

The theme of your day is sharing.

Your Private Guide will share not only his/her knowledge of the history and culture of Japan, but also about every day Japanese life, including anecdotes of his or her own experiences of life in Japan. 

S/he will also help you to discover the unusual places and customs of Tokyo or Kyoto.
