Responsible tourism: Japan family holiday, private departure

Environment

This trip uses Japan's efficient public transport system for inter-city journeys on the famous bullet train. We avoid travelling at peak times of the day so as not to take seats from commuters. Most sightseeing is done on foot, aside from using public transport such as local trains and even a ferry to an island.

All travellers receive one of our unique packs which include travel and cultural guidelines. These include tips for family activities in free time and we recommend restaurants within walking distance of accommodation. Our recommended activities will be easy to get to by public transport (by foot, or in at least one case, by rental bike).

Whilst in Japan we have to work with larger hotels than the intimate style we prefer in other countries, we aim to use those with good environmental policies. We are also working on finding family-run inns which have enough rooms with private bathrooms.

Community

All travellers receive one of our unique packs which include cultural as well as travel guidelines. We include a handy language guide to learn some Japanese. Whilst you are usually with a guide, we think itís good to learn the local language, it fosters goodwill.

When you are with a guide, youíll be with a local guide in each area, rather than have one guide from the 'big city' taking you around Japan. This gives you a localised experience as well as putting money into local pockets. We also work with people and communities who don't always benefit from tourism dollars. We believe in meeting people on an 'equal' basis rather than only meet people who serve you. As an example, on this trip, you can benefit from our relationships to learn how to make bento boxes in a private Japanese home.

On the topic of food, also check your pack for our restaurant recommendations. What better way to really know a country than through its food? You'll be eating where the locals eat.
