JR Rail Passes
The JR Rail Pass is perhaps the best travel deal anywhere. These passes allow unlimited travel on JR trains. However, there are many options available, and we can recommend the best one for you as well as purchasing the passes for you.
Japan's culture is very unique and different. Because of this, it is sometimes difficult to understand, especially to westerners. Guides can help to break through the cultural barrier to a greater understanding of Japan and its people. We can arrange for professional, licensed guides, volunteer guides (available only in certain locations) and taxi driver/guides.
Here are just a few of the activities we can help to arrange for you:
- Tea ceremony
- Meet a Maiko (A Maiko is a Geisha in training.) or a Maiko Dinner Party
- Zen Meditation
- Geisha/Samurai Make-up and Dress-up Photo Studio
- Sushi Making or Japanese Cooking Classes
- Visit a Sumo Stable Practice
- Japanese Calligraphy Classes
- Home Stay

- Martial Arts
- Shopping Tours
- And Much, Much More

Japanese Cell Phones
The majority of non-Japanese cell phones will not work in Japan. If you need to stay in touch while you are in Japan, see our Cell Phone Rental page for details on how to rent a phone.
Japan may be a very advanced country, but they are behind the curve when it comes to the internet. Even many of the larger hotels will have hot-spots only in the lobby. If you need more than this, we have wireless broadband cards that will work in just about every city in Japan.
