Welcome Note

    Hi, I am the lead tour co-ordinator here at Japan Road Trips, Sean. After graduating with a major in Japanese Studies from the National University of Singapore, I moved to Japan, first as an English teacher, next as a travel writer, and then as a travel planner, co-ordinator and conductor.


    As an avid traveller and student of the Japanese culture, I have been across all 47 prefectures of Japan on numerous occasions, and I would be delighted to take you on a journey to explore in-depth the country's various delights.


    Japan is a fascinating place with lots to offer: from ancient temples to modern skyscrapers with futuristic architecture, from high-paced and vibrant cities to rustic countrysides and scenic landscapes. Here, there are endless means and opportunities to satisfy tourists with different inclinations. If you would like a seasoned insider to help you enjoy a truly authentic experience here in Japan, my team and I are at your service.


    So feel free to connect with us to discuss how we could embark on an adventure together. Looking forward to create the fondest of memories with you here in Japan!

Hi, I'm your friendly tour-conductor David. I am an American who has been living in Japan for the past 13 years. My time and travels in Japan have given me a clear understanding of the local people and their culture, and I will do my utmost to make your Japan travels a better experience.


In my free time I enjoy relaxing at the lovely beaches of Izu, creating images of impressive landscapes around the country, or enjoying the soft powder snow found in resorts around northern Japan and Hokkaido.


Among my qualifications are CASI, AST1, First Responders and Avalanche Operations. In layman's terms I am a qualified snowboarding instructor and backcountry guide. Another of my interests is guiding travellers up Mount Fuji, the highest peak in Japan. 


I look forward to sharing with you the wonderful destinations this beautiful land has to offer!
