Why Dragonfly?


Dragonfly Tours is your own personal guide to Japan. We are a family-run business handling tours exclusively in this country, which means we not only have in-depth knowledge of Japan but can also offer you a personal and comprehensive service. We keep our tours personable and personalised by keeping group sizes small — usually up to eight people. And we keep it uppermost in our minds that this is your time, your tour. This means that you have the advantage of guide-led tours, balanced with time to yourself, and the option of striking out on your own at any time.


We provide the know-how of where to go and what to see and do the boring stuff like booking hotels and trains, leaving you free to experience Japan to the full. Our team — a mixture of British and Japanese guides — is small and experienced, and is united by a passion for Japan and introducing it to visitors. Because of our intimate relationship with the country we can show you the real Japan. We show our visitors the picture-postcard sites, and also those you may not find by yourself. You see the beautiful, the bizarre, the famous and the little-known without the stress and anxiety of missing out on something.

Whether its doing winter sports, viewing cherry blossoms, maiko dancing, dressing up as a samurai, rafting, canyoning or visiting sake breweries, we are here for you. Dragonfly Tours has been operating in Japan since 2005.

As a member of the Travel Trust Association (member number U6165), all customers of Dragonfly Tours Japan have 100 per cent guaranteed financial protection. All funds paid are held in an independently controlled trust account backed by insurance against fraud, theft or failure until completion of your tour.
