Esprit Travel and Tours is one of the oldest US companies specializing in tours to Japan and has been offering custom tours to foreign countries since it was established in 1979. We offer individual custom Japan tour planning (FIT), custom tours for special interest groups and a limited selection of escorted Japan tours, the only destination we are currently serving. In addition we offer exclusitve tours to museum benefactors and donors through private arrangements. No matter what your preferred mode of travel, we guarantee you'll have a deeply meaningful, highly personal and memorable travel experience. This is a promise we're comfortable making because each of our journeys is carefully planned and expertly orchestrated to immerse you in the culture of Japan — its history, sights, customs, cuisine, arts and crafts. Most of all, we will introduce you to wonderful local people in warm, personal and enlightening ways.
The beautiful Japanese calligraphy you see on this page was created especially for Esprit by Shotei Ibata, one of the many skilled artisans (sensei) we have the pleasure of introducing our clients to in Japan. The English translation of this calligraphy is "Journeys of the Heart," which truly fits what we offer our clients.
Esprit prides itself on providing journeys that enlighten, enchant and live long in your memory. We invite you to explore our website, enjoy our Living Artists video series and call us to discuss arranging your trip.
