FAQs about luxury Japan travel

  • When is the best time to go to Japan?

    Our experts recommend visiting Japan during spring and fall, more specifically early March to late May, and early October to early December.

    Not only is this when the weather is best, with summer bringing typhoon season and the winter bringing frigid temps, but the landscape is also at its finest. Book a year in advance, and you can spend your spring in Japan chasing the iconic cherry blossoms or visit in the fall to watch the landscape awash in vibrant hues of orange, red, and yellow.

  • What are the top things to see and do on a luxury Japan tour?

    Here’s what our Asia travel expert Corey Weiss had to say about the best things to do in Japan:

    “Staying at a luxury ryokan, or traditional Japanese Inn, is something so unique to Japan and a must-do for any visitor wanting an authentic experience. Most will have private, hot-spring-fed baths in the rooms, or onsens, to enjoy after your multi-course dinner. Getting the opportunity to enjoy a private dinner with a Maiko, or a Geisha in training, is such a special experience. Here you get the opportunity to watch her traditional dances and ask questions through your interpreter, making for a very memorable evening. Lastly, getting the chance to watch a Sumo Tournament is a must-do if you time it right. They don’t happen often, and tickets are hard to come by, but it’s easier with a luxury travel provider like Scott Dunn.”

  • What is there to do on a Japan honeymoon?

    When it comes to a honeymoon in Japan, it doesn’t get more romantic than an escape to the mountains and indulging in local cuisine according to our Asia expert Corey Wiess.

    “There are so many amazing experiences for honeymooners in Japan.  I’d recommend including at least a few nights at a ryokan somewhere tucked away in the Japanese mountains, going out for hikes or simply enjoying your private onsen all day. The new Guntu boat gives honeymooners a fantastic opportunity to cruise through the Seto Sea in ultimate luxury, letting you take in Japan from the water and enjoy the freshest seafood. Also, what’s more fun than a private cooking course to learn the art of soba making, or a private sake tasting with a Sake Master in Tokyo?”

  • How can I plan a Japan family vacation?

    Start planning a Japan family vacation by getting in touch with our travel experts. Creating luxury family vacations is our specialty, and we know all the best hotels, restaurants, and activities that will give you and your children the best taste of Japan.

    If you want to get ahead of the game, consider what kind of travelers you and your family are. Is this trip just with the immediate family, or is it a multigenerational trip with grandparents as well? Are you all early risers ready to pack in the day? Or do you prefer a slower-paced experience, sticking to one planned activity a day and free time for the rest? Answering these questions will help us tailor an itinerary perfect for you.

  • Where do your luxury Japan vacations fly from and to?

    Multiple cities in the US fly directly to Tokyo, including Los Angeles, Dallas, New York, Chicago, Boston, and Miami. There are two airports in Tokyo we fly to, Narita (NRT) and Haneda (HDA), however, we prefer Haneda airport as it’s about an hour closer to the city center than Narita.

    You can also fly to Osaka Kansai (KIX) via international connecting flights.

  • Do I need a visa for a Japan vacation?

    US and Canadian passport holders can travel in Japan for up to 90 days without a visa.

    For more information, visit the Government’s travel website.

  • How much do your luxury Japan vacations cost?

    Our luxury Japan vacations start at around $8,000 per person, however, the final price will depend on your finished itinerary. We keep clear communications between our guests and the cost of their activities, accommodations, and anything else we may book for their trip, so you’ll have an exact idea of how much your trip costs throughout the entire process.
