New Tour Japan
【Concept of New Tour Japan】
The concept of New Tour Japan comes directly from or own experiences of visiting other countries and even from visiting other places in Japan. A visit overseas can often fall short of your expectations especially as it is packaged to suit the tour agent or the people wanting to maximize income from day tours, purchase of souvenirs, etc., rather than focusing on what the traveler desires. So instead, we offer opportunities to experience something more; connections and insights into the people and culture, and a deeper understanding and appreciation of what makes each area and aspect of Japan and its people unique.
To deliver this, we believe the most important aspect of making a trip memorable is to stimulate ones senses through activities, which combine elements of learning and entertainment, and which encourage you to participate and interact with guides and others.
“Japan Experience and Authentic Local Cuisine” are two of the most important themes to pursue. We focus on facilitating cross-cultural communication as a way of gaining a much deeper insight into Japan not only in cities but also in rural settings, where traditional values are more evident.
Though this we believe the traveler, and the local people too, will find memorable and rewarding experiences. And also, we as an organization hope wish to help contribute to the cultural and economic development of Japan and its regions.
You, the International visitor, want to experience the real Japan and satisfy your curiosity.
As you generally are not familiar with the Japanese language, customs and geography, it is not easy to connect and communicate with others, let alone find your way around outside the usual hotel circuit and popular tourist locations such as Tokyo, Kyoto, etc.
We’d like to support you by providing you with tours and courses that will help you overcome these obstacles, to link you to the real Japan. Japan is actually a very diverse country, although the language and basic culture is common, each region has this own character, tradition and specialties.
Our theme is “Experience and real Food”.
Collectively we have many years experience working with non-Japanese, both inside and outside Japan, and of introducing them to the country and culture. We have found that there are many aspects of daily Japanese life which non-Japanese find interesting, but which as a native we take for granted. For example, the extensive and efficient rail network connecting towns and cities, as well as subway and bus networks in major cities. Or the huge variety and availability of high quality of local food and drink.
The New Tour Japan team has a prime opportunity to introduce these aspects of Japan to the visitor, and enriching their visit experience.
What We’d like to do
Initially we want to develop spot tours with a theme of “Experience and real Food”.
Through this we’d like to provide visitors with opportunities not only to experience real Japanese culture but also to understand aspects daily here.
