If you are looking for a unique experience on a four masted sailing ship, this is for you. No broadway shows, or mega floating theme parks, just the real experience of sailing the Mediterranean. The ship holds about 125 guests plus crew. You are able to interact with the crew and even lend a hand in the daily operation of the ship. Few if any children under the age of 15, and 75% of the guests were from countries other than the USA. We had a wonderful experience on the ship and during the small group land tours.

This was an awesome sailing ship that held 170 people from all over the world. Loved the fact that it never used the motor but it was there in case of emergency. And it didn't overwhelm you with climbing walls, spas, 30 restaurants, gambling, etc. etc that the huge moving hotel ships provide. A truly unique experience !

We walked the self-guided Nakasendo Trail in October coordinated through Oku Japan. Everything was perfect, maps were easy to follow, accommodation was amazing and the scenery and walk was beautiful. The customer service from Oku Japan was above and beyond. We are already thinking about our next trip and will definitely be booking through them again. Well done Oku Japan we had a great time and apologies for not doing a review sooner.

absolutely amazing experience using oku japan for a 4 day kumano kodo trail self-guided tour (november 2016), the attention to detail and organization, the quality of materials, the fabulous experience on the trail and my evenings/mornings at local inns, and also visited the kumano kodo local office and spent some time with the lovely oku japan staff; I did underestimate the rigor of the hike, especially the opening, “passing through the womb” section of the trail, but managed to adjust, and it was a deeply moving, meaningfully, spiritual experience, much gratitude, highly recommended

Just returned from the Nakasendo Trail walking tour. It was fabulous! Our guide, Naomi, was outstanding and Oku Japan was an excellent company to deal with. I highly recommend them and would use them again without reservation.
