ZENBU TOURS 2017… coming soon

Newsflash! Dates just announced – go HERE for details! IMG_1676Greetings All !

I’m  just back from a wonderful time in Japan hosting several successful winter tours including a a couple of fun private day tours with grown up family groups.

It’s always a pleasure for me to meet new people but it’s also a very lovely thing when you have repeat guests -this year on the Zenbu Zen Tour (plus Tokyo Extension) I welcomed back 4 guests from the prior 2 years – absolutely chuffed. We spent 15 glorious days together! Ate some spectacularly good food, immersed ourself in culture – both traditional and contemporary , did a little too much shopping,  not too much drinking (for once!) visited temples, gardens, shrines and galleries and were welcomed into private homes….  

And boy did we have some laughs.  As we always do.

Thank you my friends  – it means a lot to me to have earned your trust and to have you return to Japan so soon with me. Of course the wonder of Kyoto and excitement of Tokyo had nothing to do with you booking again…..

And to all my new clients – it gives me immense pleasure to witness Japan through your eyes as you experience her for the first time – or perhaps the first time you’ve explored in an in-depth way.

Osaka was a fun-kinda-madness just for one eve, Ohara obliged us with a quiet stroll through a mountainside temple and a visit to the early morning farmer’s market, Nara provided us a cosy shelter from the rain  in its old town and covered arcades  ( perfect for a bit of antique shopping) and Kanazawa awarded us contemporary art, a stunning garden, our first taste of snow for the trip – and so much more…  Boy  – we got around this time! Take a look.

On that note….  I’m just sitting down with a cuppa to start plotting dates for my 2017 tours.  I have so many ideas floating through my head… where to start, where to start.

If you’d like to be included in the mailing list for my upcoming  2017 tours please email me at


Or check back here on the tour pages in the next month or so.

And of course if you have any special requests or you are part of a private company or family group looking for a personalised extended tour (ie longer than 1-2 days which is fine to leave it until closer to time) please let me know ASAP as I need to plot longer tours into the calendar… well, yesterday 😉

Thank you!
