We are continuing to build our range and stock list and we look forward to providing you with high quality adventure equipment that will enhance your adventure in Japan.>>> Details

personal service

Regardless of which tour you join, i am personally involved in the planning and running and in many cases, will be your guide. I learned long ago that it is a bit self defeating to run an adventure travel company and spend all your time having adventures at your desk. So for me, it is in the field where I gain my greatest satisfaction, helping fellow travellers to discover more about themselves and Japan. On top of that, this level of service ensures I keep growing and learning about Japan, myself and the needs of those travelling with us.

Over the past 31 years we have been pioneers in bringing unique experiences to the world. We encourage you to join us soon to explore and experience an authentic combination of culture and adventure in this exotic land.
