Watch out when dealing with these guys. In addition to not accepting credit cards, Walk Japan's other business practices fall short of Western norms. I experienced this in a rather shocking way after I wired a downpayment to them about 4 months before the scheduled trip. A brief 2 weeks later I had to cancel because of an unforeseen scheduling conflict. That's when Walk Japan hit me with full force of their "non-refundable deposit" policy. In letting me know that they intended to keep my deposit (and of course having incurred no expenses in that short time), the borderline gleeful tone of their emails struck an exceedingly sour note with me. They also played the "we're a small operator" card, of course. I argued that if ever there were an opportunity to offer a discretionary refund, in the interest of fairness and customer care, this would be it. In fact, I would hope for such grace from a small shop that was run by decent people. In the end, their longwinded and self-serving defense convinced me that I was better off walking away.

About Walk Japan

Since 1992, Walk Japan has led tours rich in history and geography, exclusively in Japan. 

What Makes Them Stand Out? 

Walk Japan began with two Hong Kong University academics leading study trips to teach students about Japanese history and geography, eventually developing into a tour company. As a result, their tours are focused on seeing Japan by foot, through an educational experience in areas that may be lesser-known. Tours are comprised of small groups with a maximum of 12 people per tour leader.

Who Travels With Them?

Walk Japan creates tours for families, friends, groups, and schools. Its tours are suitable for multi-generational groups, solo travelers, and couples. Most participants are aged 30 to 70 and they come from all over the world. 

Where Do They Operate? 

Walk Japan leads tours throughout Japan, staying in local accommodations, and exploring off the beaten track.

Why Travel With Them? 

Walk Japan has an in-depth and broad knowledge of Japan and is continually researching the best tour sites for its guests. All leaders have the skills to talk with locals and a deep familiarity with the country. One leader is a professor of Japanese history; another of Japanese social geography; one ran the Japanese subsidiary of a foreign corporation and now lives and works in a remote rural area of Japan; while another was educated at a Japanese middle school, worked in Japanese TV and lived for many years in Tokyo and Kyoto. With a commitment to corporate responsibility, Walk Japan supports family-run and local businesses, cares for and creates woodlands, and participates in community projects.
