Popular experiences and tours in Japan tend to sell out in advance. I recommend pre-booking essential experiences. The Klook website has the most extensive selection of Japan experiences anywhere online.

Cultural Experiences

If cultural experiences, private tours or more off-the-beaten-path activities are what you seek, Viator has plenty of ideas.
