Japan Family Holiday

Tisome · Traveled June 2024
Our journey through Japan with Intrepid was a magical blend of culture and cuisine, exploring iconic landmarks and relishing local delights. The efficiency of Japan's transportation system and warm hospitality made our trip memorable. Intrepid's family tours with a dedicated guide ensured a personalized experience, creating lasting memories with fellow travelers. Our adventure was filled with new discoveries, and we left Japan with a deep appreciation for its heritage and community. Excited for our next exploration with Intrepid!

Japan: Land of the Rising Sun

Brandy · Traveled June 2024
Good trip/ the itinerary and activities are good. Japan is lovely. The packing guide is wrong- you can pack MUCH lighter, most Japanese hotels provide pjs and toiletries. And they have super cheap and easy to laundry at most hotels. You need an eSIM card, it is tough to get around Japan without data. The only big downside is that neither of our guides were actually Japanese. It would have been nice to have someone actually from Japan guiding, but the guides generally did a good job.

Great trip. Our tour guide Shu, was amazing and showed us great spots to go to during our free time. The trip is a good combination of being in nature and being in the city. You get alot of free time to explore by yourself as well.
