Ten Thousand Travels

Over the years, we’ve visited hundreds of Japanese spas and have seen more of Japan than most native Japanese.

To share the fruits of our research, we’ve formed a tour company, Ten Thousand Travels. It’s designed for the traveler who doesn’t normally do tours, but wants to get deep into the culture--to see and experience more than just the tourist spots in Tokyo and Kyoto. Groups are limited to 18 or less, and the focus is on hot water, great food, and adventures not usually available to those without a familiarity with the language or friends who live there.

In 2016, we are offering two trips in the spring and two in the fall. For details, click here. We can also arrange trip extensions to Tokyo or Kyoto before or after your Waves trip.

Fall 2015 trips sold out quite early, so if the itineraries above pique your interest, send an email to dfleig@mac.com.
