TOKYO — International tourists set a new record this past November, according to JTB Tourism Research and Consulting, with nearly 1.9 million visitors arriving to experience Japan’s unique culture and history. A ten percent jump compared to the previous year, the new high-water mark for November is a sign of steadily growing global interest in what Japan has to offer.
Rather than settle for shallow, off-the-shelf experiences, visitors driven to understand Japan can dive in deeper with the help of Tours Japan. As detailed at the company’s website at Tours Japan guides offer the kinds of insights, context, and connections that only long-term residents can provide.
Going far beyond pointing out the usual names and places, Tours Japan guides help visitors understand the cultural and historical significance of what they are seeing. With a brand-new Food Tour now adding to the company’s list of tour options and others planned for the near future, a visit to the Tours Japan website at belongs on every traveler’s list of things to do.
“Japan is truly a special, unique country, and one that draws people from all over the world every year,” said Tours Japan representative Barbara Manning, “In recent years, we’ve seen even more interest in Japan, with new tourism records being set regularly. While any visit to Japan is likely to prove rewarding and satisfying, it pays to try to make the most of that precious time. We pride ourselves on helping our clients experience Japan and its culture and history in deeper, more substantial ways. Our guides are the most passionate, knowledgeable, and dedicated to be found anywhere, and that really makes a difference.”
With a long, complex history that has sometimes seen it isolated from the rest of the world, the island nation of Japan is today home to around 127 million residents. As one of the most highly developed countries of all in economic terms, Japan boasts a very high standard of living and notably low rates of crime.
Where other services provide checklist-style tours that are led by guides lacking in knowledge, experience, and cultural fluency, Tours Japan offers something different and better. With an in-depth approach that helps visitors understand the significance and context of the many sights to be seen, bilingual Tours Japan guides leverage their long-term residency and impressive knowledge of Japan’s culture and history to ensure truly rewarding experiences.
