People-to-People Experiences: On the Japan’s Cultural Treasures adventure with OAT, visit a small mountain town and experience A Day in the Life of Ashigara. This is a unique opportunity to witness one of Japan’s rural towns. We will learn about the customs of the town and take part in a cooking lesson with local residents. We’ll also get to know a Japanese family during a Home-Hosted Visit.

O.A.T. Exclusives: Get a fuller picture of Japan when we learn about the Controversial Topic of the often misunderstood profession of geisha from the madam of a geisha house in Hakone.

Freedom to Personalize Your Experience: Join the 53% of travelers who extend their time abroad. Add a pre-trip extension to Tokyo: Ancient & Modern Traditions, a post-trip extension to Hiroshima: City of Peace or Nagasaki, or a combination of these extensions to their Japan adventure—when you do, you’ll enjoy more time to develop bonds with your fellow travelers.

Local Trip Experience Leaders and Regional Office Expertise: Explore with a local Trip Experience Leader, who is fluent in English and trained by O.A.T. on the skills needed to bring travelers off the beaten path to meet with locals who share their cultures and traditions with us. Plus, follow an itinerary that’s been carefully crafted by O.A.T.’s Tokyo office—opened in 2014.
