According to the definition, a self-guided tour is basically a tour without a tour guide. They are commonly employed in museums because what you are seeing is fixed. When you are traveling a Digital Tour has a totally different meaning. The historical and cultural information related to a temple or shrine is fixed and can be summarized and even narrated with a voice. But everyone has that information in their guide books and from their research on the places they want to visit.

The biggest challenge of traveling without a human guide at your side is logistical. You can't make decisions because you can't read Japanese or speak it to get more information. This means that planning is hard and everything becomes impossible for the time you have to travel. In addition to the historical cultural insights that an ideal Digital Tour might include we have added precise train timings and platform / transfer information, bilingual instructions sets (English to Japanese) for buying tickets, confirming things, and general assistance for wi-fi, toilet access, food allergy issues. But that's not all. We also provide time-smart itineraries designed by a Japan travel expert, walking maps, useful images and more . . .

Our Digital Tours are ideal for travelers who want to be flexible and completely independent and for those who wish to really get off the beaten track. Many of our clients have used this service to travel to exotic areas of Japan for weeks at a time without a guide and staying in places where English is barely spoken. No problem! Just open the PDF attachment on your phone and everything (well almost everything) is right there. My clients frequently use this service to travel by taxi all over Kyoto or Tokyo with non-English speaking drivers. Large groups use this service to hire tour buses and guide the driver through itineraries of their choice. What could a Digital Tour do for your family or group?
