Experience Japan Travel “Originals”

As Experience Japan Travel is based in Kyoto, Japan, and we have had over 25 years of experience in the Tourism Industry, it allows us to create exclusive, semi-exclusive, and original experiences for our clients. Noted below are just a sample of some of these “Experience Japan Travel Originals”, that you may like to incorporate into your Japan Itinerary. There are many more that may suit your individual interests and needs. We are proud of these experiences, and equally appreciative to the many contacts and connections we have with special suppliers and the local Japanese people that are willing to create truly unique experiences.


Enjoy an original Hiking Experience on part of the Kyoto Trail, on one of the highest mountains that surrounds Kyoto. You first goal is to reach the spiritual shrine at the top of the mountain, and your following goal will be a soak in a citrus bath in a rural part of Kyoto.


Enjoy a 2 – 3 hour hike which will take you from the eastern side of Kyoto to one of the best view points of Kyoto City. Walk through a natural environment away from the crowded sightseeing locations, and end up in a spiritually important location to all Kyoto people.


A once in a lifetime experience that will alter the way your think and view your everyday lifestyle. An exclusive experience where you will see how Monks spend their days. Experience areas of a Unesco registered World Heritage Temple that are not usually open to the public.


Venture away from the mainstream locations of Kyoto which sometimes can become very crowded. With local people, cycle the back streets for Kyoto to get beneath the surface of Kyoto and see sights that the normal traveler can not. While cycling also enjoy some of the local streets that can only be found in the more residential areas. 


The ways of the Geiko and Maiko (a Geisha is called Geiko in Kyoto) have always been very conservative and mysterious for hundred of years. It is very difficult to experience what is now known as an intangible World Heritage cultural craft. Now you also can enjoy a once in a lifetime experience. 


The Craftsmanship of making Japanese Knives (which will last a lifetime) is also an Unesco registered intangible Cultural Property, and even today the Blacksmith will not use machines, but will hand make their knives from start to finish.


Experience one of the most sort after crafts of Japan, Kintsugi. Kintsugi is the repairing of broken or cracked ceramic items by using gold, silver, platinum or grounded shell as a form a glue. You will be taking home a piece of art. 


Japan is also know for it’s tin, silverware and pewter craftsmanship. Experience this craft in a location that has been operating for over 180 years. The beauty of the pewter along with the intriguing process needed with let you appreciate this craft even more.


There is what are called “three most scenic” locations in Japan. One of these is located on the Coast of the Japan Sea, and while it is not on the usual travelers schedule, the transfer there is well worth the effort.
