Doesn't matter if you're planning your first trip or your tenth. This means a lot to you and you want to get it right. I get it. I really do. But...
My bet is you're probably spending WAY TOO MUCH time researching online - instead of actually getting on with exploring The Real Japan.
Am I right?! Sometimes all the information out there, even on TheRealJapan.com, can be overwhelming. Before you know it, you're locked in indecision paralysis. Making little to no progress on what's supposed to be your dream trip.
I’d like to help.
I've just introduced a brand new service specifically designed to remove this headache for you.
I send you your Personal Travel Plan and itinerary ideas with links to resources where you can make direct bookings.
I send you a Japan Travel Questionnaire which helps you define what you want from your trip.
You and I hop on a 45-minute Skype call where we chat through your travel needs in more depth.
Includes a copy of my ebook "How to Travel in Japan Without Speaking Japanese" packed with tips and strategies for easy travel.
You started with a simple idea - a dream of seeing Japan and all the incredible sights it has to offer. To experience that trip of a lifetime.
But then you started researching that idea.
And slowly, day by day, week by week, what you thought would be a fun and exciting exercise actually turned into a frustrating chore. One that turned up more questions than answers the more time you spent on it.
How the heck did that happen!?
Oh yeah, and nobody told you just how soul-sappingly time consuming all this stuff was going to be. Am I right?
We've all been there - spending day after day endlessly scrolling through out of date reviews on TripAdvisor - only to find out that the more you read the less you know.
And as for those Google searches: just exactly how many of those 8 million matches will you keep clicking on before you consider putting that dream trip on hold while you recover the will to live?
Trust me, I totally relate to your travel planning fatigue. I've been there and done that. Several times over.
If you want to have the trip of a lifetime and your own personalised, bespoke Japan Travel Plan then this is for you.

"Before using The Real Japan I spent hours upon hours scouring the web trying to decide what I wanted to do with my time in Japan. There were so many options that I was locked in a state of decision paralysis.
Rob helped me narrow down my goals and he put together a comprehensive guide to accomplish everything that I wanted to in Japan as well as providing advice and resources on how to go about my trip.
Without The Real Japan I am sure that my trip would've been a jumbled unfocused mess, but because of the insanely effective help of Rob, I am certain that this will be the best trip of my life."

"Thank you for helping us with our Japan Travel Plan.
The plan worked with us on gives me a lot of confidence in our two weeks of touring Japan on our own. The plan is very detailed and easy to follow… pulling all the necessary elements together."

""My first full day in Japan and I am loving it. Thanks to The Real Japan for the service to put together a sensible and varied itinerary based around my Rugby World Cup matches.
The purchase of JR pass ticket direct to my hotel, a Suica card and an ultra fast router has made arriving and negotiating my way around to be a part of the holiday experience and not a stress."

You are fully protected by our 100% Satisfaction-Guarantee. 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. No Risk! No Quibble! If you're unhappy for any reason, I'll give you your money back.
Typically, between 2 - 3 weeks. Just how fast I can deliver depends, in part, on how quickly you can reply to the travel questionnaire and how soon we can get on a Skype call.
Sure. The destinations we can include in your plan are limited only by your time and budget. With the right plan, multiple islands are possible in a trip as short as 2 weeks.
Please note that as I am not a travel agent, I do not make reservations or bookings for you.
However, I can supply detailed travel ideas including links to tours, destinations, accommodation and transportation, which you can directly book yourself.
Yes. In fact, this is what most people do; have their flights booked and a rough itinerary, perhaps with one or two hotels pre-booked.
We can suggest further destinations, accommodation and activities that match your interests and budget.
We can then design an itinerary that makes the most effective use of your time, building in experiences you hadn't even thought possible.

Absolutely. I have delivered Personal Travel Plans to people who have come to Japan before, but realised they could have had a far better experience. That's what I can help you with.
We're happy to make a few tweaks to the draft plan we send you. But if you'd like us to spend more time providing you with even more detail, simply upgrade your plan by buying 1, 2, or 3 extra planning days where we will happily work longer to get your plan just right for you.
No. Sorry! Because we typically need up to 3 weeks to work on your personal travel plan, and need to schedule a call, and require responses from you, we cannot offer the service to anyone coming to Japan in less than 4 weeks time.
