Japan

Zegrahm Expeditions offers a Japan tour like no other, thanks to our connections to Japan experts Mark Brazil and Chieko Sakihana. We take guests off the beaten path and into food shops, local homes, and traditional businesses for a true immersion in Japanese culture. Of course, our Japan tour hits all the highlights, too, from Tokyo and Kyoto to Hiroshima and even a foray into South Korea to Gyeongju. Visit Hokkaido and stroll through endless fields of wildflowers on Rebun Island, also known as the “Floating Island of Flowers,” and visit a bustling morning market in Abashiri. Choose an overland adventure or a Japan cruise—all options boast an insider feel that make your journey even more special as guests search for the elusive Japanese crested ibis, visit a wasabi farm, learn about traditional arts and crafts, and wander the famous gardens of Kenroku-en and Myoryuji Temple.
