Have you been wanting to go to Japan, but unsure of where to go? Not sure of how to maximize your time and see everything the country has to offer? This trip is for you! We will be going to what I think is the most beautiful part of Japan, the south of Honshu, home to Kyoto, Osaka, and Hiroshima. At this time of the year you will get the leaves starting to change their colours, but a warm, and comfortable climate that will suit any would be traveller! Japan is one of my favourite places in the world, and I'm super excited to share my experiences with you and make sure that you see all the best places! You will be getting a perfect overview of the country, seeing its fascinating ancient culture, while getting to see the modern cities and attractions. You'll come back with many fond memories, and even more fun stories! If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a message, and I'll happily answer it for you.

G'day! I'm Thomas, but you can call me Tom or Goldy! I'm a fun-loving Aussie, who's keen to show you my favourite parts of the world! Coming on a trip with me, you can expect two things, a well planned trip, and a lot of laughs! I will be living in Kyoto at the time of this tour, so you will have my insights both to Japanese culture and the layout of Kyoto.

Our accommodation: We will be staying in private Airbnb for this trip. Most will require you to have a room buddy, but we can explore other options if required. In Kyoto I will try to make arrangements for a private house for you all, in Osaka and Hiroshima, you will be staying in modern apartments.
