Japan off the
beaten track

Unique experiences to bring you and the local communities together.

Oku Japan and its branches

Oku Japan operates guided, self-guided and custom tours around Japan. Our main office is in Kyoto, and some of our sales staff are based in the UK. In spring 2015, Oku Japan opened a branch office in the village of Chikatsuyu, where we are proud to be part of the local community. In 2019, we also opened our Nakasendo Branch in the famed Juku town of Tsumago along the Nakasendo trail.
