Global adventure operator relaunches tours in Japan from October 2022.

As Autumn, or ‘Aki’, approaches, travellers will be able to enjoy the famous fall colours of Japan once more as G Adventures relaunches its small-group adventures in the Land of the Rising Sun next month. 

With entry restrictions being relaxed in recent weeks, the adventure operator and community tourism pioneer will reintroduce 12 tours from October 2022, offering culturally curious travellers the opportunity to explore the big cities of Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka as well as lesser-visited regions, with an emphasis on meaningful local experiences.

The relaxation of entry restrictions has been eagerly awaited by G Adventures, our travellers and the local communities we work with in Japan, who have been keen to welcome back tourism as soon as possible. October is a fantastic time for us to restart our trips, with ‘Aki’ (Autumn) being one of the most beautiful times to visit with temperatures ideal for exploring,” says Julie FitzGerald, general manager for Asia at G Adventures.

“While Japan is often celebrated for cherry blossoms and buzzing cities, G Adventures will include popular highlights as well as lesser-seen local experiences, whether that’s training with a samurai master, learning to quieten the mind with zen meditation or staying with a rural farming community far off the tourist trail. It’s these experiences that make our trips truly unique, help our travellers to create once in a lifetime memories and allow us to continue supporting local communities by distributing money into the hands of local people,” she adds.
