Travel with Kuroko Boutique Tours

  • Why choose Kuroko Boutique Tours? Understanding what distinctly sets us apart from other Japan tour providers.
    Our difference: Small Group Tours: Our tours are limited to typically 8 participants only, thereby guaranteeing you receive individual attention and truly intimate experiences throughout your journey. Authentic Experiences: We handpick the most authentic cultural, culinary, and natural experiences, taking you off the beaten path to truly connect with Japan. From restaurants to accommodations, we mainly work with small scale often family-owned local Japanese businesses. We believe that Time is the most precious commodity. We want to maximise your valuable time in Japan and always have efficiency in our mind. Expert Local Guides: Our experienced guides are well-versed in Japanese history and culture and wish to create a personal connection and care about how much fun you are having. Focus areas on our Tours: Japanese aesthetics and ethos: Throughout our tours, we try to convey Japanese beauty and spirits, as we believe those are what makes Japan so special. It is our sheer pleasure if our guests fall in love with Japan by the end of the tour. Authenticities only locals usually get to see: We show our guests an original side of Japan that is often popular among locals but challenging to get to as individual travellers. Whether it is ancient temples, shrines, rural villages, or learning about the customs and rituals, we try to share Japan through the eyes of locals. Culinary experiences high to family-style: Primarily we take our guests to dining scenes where our guests are the only tourists. Often nestled in the heart of local communities, these small-scale, revered family-run establishments offer an intimate window into the meticulous artistry and craftsmanship of Japanese cuisine. Within these spaces, each bite is a testament to tradition, passion, and a culinary heritage that transcends generations. Delving into Japanese wellness culture: Discover Japan's breathtaking landscapes and rejuvenate your body and soul through indulging in wellness practices like Onsen baths and forest bathing. The serene vistas and the soothing warmth of the Onsen washing over you, stirring a deep sense of tranquillity and rejuvenation within.
