The perfect pace – your itinerary, your way

As over 50’s, Trevor and Juanita like to strike the perfect balance between rest and relaxation along with adventure and sightseeing. Having been on many pre-arranged Japanese tours they know how hectic and tiring the schedule can be so founded Bushido Travel to offer a more relaxed alternative. Bushido Travel specialise in creating custom-made, self-paced itineraries with built in flexibility and 24/7 support.

For small group tours, your consultant will accompany you as a tour leader to ensure you get the best possible experience. There’s always plenty of activities on offer but there’s also room for flexibility allowing you to stay with the group for the selected itinerary or head off and explore independently whenever you wish.

COVID-19 update 11 Nov 2020

Due to the ongoing pandemic, and the closed borders, unfortunately we have had to cancel the 2021 Winter Snow festival tour. However, with the possibility of a travel bubble with Japan (and possible vaccine availability) we started to put plans in place for a Cherry Blossom tour for March/April next year, again, only if travel is safe to do.  

So, what does this mean for you? That dream trip to Japan, you wanted to do, will happen, it just depends when and if it is safe. 

Our packages not only remain Fully Refundable, you can secure your place without having to pay a deposit until 2021 and we know that the tour is going ahead

So, book your place and join us and our special guest, Adelaide’s own Tony Pilkington, for an experience you will never forget.

Warm Regards

Trevor & Juanita
