  • Why we love Japan

    Japan is so much more than the land of karaoke, Hello Kitty, Manga and Harajuku style.

    Travel to Japan and you’ll soon see that it’s also home to outlandish game shows, bizarre vending machines, old school sake breweries, and a population of faultlessly considerate people. Oh… and there’s a whole load of ancient temples, castles and shrines, too.

    Join a Geckos tour to ride through the Japanese countryside at warp speed aboard a bullet train, visit sumo stables in Tokyo, see Geishas in Kyoto, sip sake in Takayama, and get amongst the legendary Osaka eating scene.

    Travelling in Japan is guaranteed to produce more mind-blowing moments per minute than almost anywhere else in the world. From riding the ruthlessly efficient subway system to using musical public toilets, a trip to Japan is worth it for the shock value alone.

    And the sushi. All of the sushi.

    Safety information

    Crime levels are low. It is generally safe to walk about at night and to travel on public transport, but you should maintain the same level of vigilance as you would at home and take sensible precautions. Reports of inappropriate touching or ‘chikan’ of female passengers on commuter trains are fairly common. The police advise that you shout at the perpetrator to attract attention and ask a fellow passenger to call the train staff. The Roppongi entertainment district of Tokyo is considered a higher risk area for crime. 
    Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure on their trip. We don’t tolerate any form of sexual harassment at Peregrine and Geckos, either between passengers or involving our leaders or local operators. Sexual relationships (consensual or otherwise) between a leader and a passenger are unacceptable. If you ever feel another person is behaving inappropriately please inform us immediately by contacting the emergency contact number detailed in these trip notes.

    By James Shackell

    “There’s no place like home,” Judy Garland says in the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz, before clicking her heels and picturing sleepy Kansas. And while these words are enshrined in cinema history, we think Dorothy might have had a different approach to travel if she’d seen...

    Cherry blossom season in Japan

    Monique Engler says from the end of March to early May, sakura bloom all over Japan. The cherry blossoms come and go, but not without being noticed.

    Everyone stops. The whole country drinks sake until they can’t walk, and stare at the blossoms until the last pale petal floats to the...
