National Geographic has described Walk Japan as “one of the 200 Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth”. The company leads the way in providing the most fulfilling and enjoyable tours available in Japan. Walk Japan has an unrivalled range of regular, scheduled tours for Japan and is researching more for the future. It also creates and runs private, custom tours tailored to customers’ particular interests and requirements.
Founded in 1992 by two academics, Dr. Thomas Stanley and Prof. Richard Irving, the company has since grown considerably both in its number of tours and customers to become the acknowledged leader of specialised tours that immerse visitors in Japanese society and culture; provide great insights into the nation and its people; and often explore little-visited, beautiful and diverse regions of the nation.
Walk Japan actively operates in a way that recognises the important role and responsibilities that businesses have in society. This includes being committed to and supportive of the communities in which the company operates, ensuring that its tours have a positive impact in these areas. Wherever possible Walk Japan uses and supports family-run, local businesses. For more information, visit www.walkjapan.com.
