Travel agency JTB Corp. this April will begin hosting English-language bus tours to popular Japan sightseeing spots, as well as attractions difficult to reach by public transportation.
Tours include a 12-day route connecting Tokyo, Mount Fuji and Kyoto, as well as Hokkaido, Tohoku, Chugoku and Kyushu, utilizing buses that seat up to 40.
JTB said part of its plan is to include tourist destinations far from airports and train stations, and difficult to reach using public transport.
JTB has conducted domestic bus tours for Europa Mundo customers since last May, mainly serving Spanish speakers. Those tours have been especially popular with “middle-aged” tourists, JTB said.
