Bespoke Tours

Cooking Experiences:
We’ve just started running private cooking experiences. These involves learning to make an assortment of Japanese dishes with a local Japanese family. It’s like a 3 hour home stay and great fun. We haven’t made a separate page fo rthis yet, so if you’re interested in joining, please get in touch via email or social media.


Bespoke Tours:
Want to be picked up at the airport and taken to the Shimanami Kaido? Hoping to propose to your partner next to a campfire on a white-sand beach? Are you arriving in Matsuyama on a cruise and hoping to see as much as possible in one day? Looking to go glamping on a remote island, hiking in the mountains, fishing with locals? No problem!

We have experience working with cruise passengers and travellers looking for something specific. If you do have something in mind or just want to discuss options, please get in touch and we’ll see what we can do. Also, if you’re not sure how a journey to Shikoku could form part of a longer trip to Japan, look at our suggested itineraries.

What people have said

We were a group of 11 total from the Diamond Princess on a stop in Matsuyama. Hidden Japan Travel kindly adapted their tour to fit our cruise schedule, and even picked us up at the port. The Tour was amazing!


I was able to request an excursion date and say we, 8 of us total, would meet at the pier. From there we discussed what there was to do in the city. We talked about biking we talked about walking. We discussed food and culture. We must have emailed back and forth 20 times to make this excursion the best I’ve ever had.


Miho was an excellent guide and she helped to plan a surprise party for my wife’s birthday with a special cake and a birthday hat. We have been on multiple cruises and excursions. This was hands down the best excursion ever. Thanks hiddentraveljapan for an unforgettable day.



Prices will be determined by the contents of the bespoke tour and will be discussed individually.
