Why Japan Awaits?

With nearly 30 Million visitors in Japan in 2023, Japan is one of the fastest growing travel destinations in the world. While travel interest in Japan is increasing, visitors may find it difficult and intimidating to travel in Japan due to various reasons:

  • Language Barrier
  • Not getting full context (many signs, menus and materials in museums, restaurants and attractions are usually in Japanese)
  • Advanced Bookings and Reservations are usually required in Japan
  • Japanese Customs (visitors may not know Japanese customs to culturally immerse themselves)
  • Cash-based society (many establishments do not accept credit cards)
  • Limitations with public transportation and getting around (smaller streets in Japan do not have names, trains and buses end by a certain time, and it may be difficult navigating between different train lines and busy stations)

Japan Awaits specializes in providing a truly local and memorable experience with deeply knowledgable and licensed tour guides throughout Japan. Japan Awaits will guide visitors and help them explore Japan without the difficulties that usually come with traveling to a foreign country as culturally deep and unique as Japan.
