EXCURSIONS JAPAN is a travel resource for visitors to Japan & its residents.  The aim is to share my love of Japan & favorite places within – including wonderful, lesser-known spots that need to attract more tourists in order to survive & thrive.  I’ve lived in Japan for over 20 years and plan to grow old here. I explore constantly – with a personal goal of becoming Japan’s foremost travel expert.  I hope the information on this website will help you make the most of your time in this incredible country.
