STEP 1

Traveler Application

It has been a year that changed the world like no other—a year that revealed a world without travel. We want to know where you’re thinking of going! Please take a few moments to fill out our traveler form and answer some basic questions. Upon submission, we’ll reach out to schedule your first call with our team.

STEP 2

Discovery Call

During our call, we will answer any and all questions, run through some specifics, and ask a few questions of our own. We are committed to getting to know you and learning more about your travel style, values and goals to ensure our work together is a perfect fit for everyone involved.

STEP 3

Yokoso! Welcome!

Once our agreements are acknowledged, you will be assigned your own dedicated TA who will take the time to get to know you and your traveling party. How do you like to travel? What kind of experiences make travel meaningful and transformational to you? Building a successful relationship with you from the beginning is what separates us from everyone else, so imagine this stage is like having coffee together or a first date. This is our “hello.” This is our foundation.

STEP 4

Here Starts the Magic

This is a very bespoke, creative and organized process that is curated for your party. As with seeking out any professional service in life such as an accountant or financial advisor, we work on a similar platform for our expertise. Once hired, your TA will begin researching, creating, designing and proposing amazing opportunities while our Guides and partners on the ground are there to ensure your trip is flawlessly executed. Throughout this process you'll have direct access and our team, whether that is via email, text or Zoom.

STEP 5

Roadmap Presentation

At the end of this process you will be presented with a beautiful executed itinerary as well as hand crafted digital documents and travel tools. Your TA will touch base a few times throughout your journey to ensure your satisfaction and maintain a happy relationship. The ongoing dialogue also helps us hit the ground running if you choose to us for your next adventure.

We love our clients!

We had never visited Japan before and Lauren and her team helped make it a trip of a lifetime for us. We needed to coordinate things before with phone calls and communication that we weren’t prepared to do. She recommended places that we certainly wouldn’t have known about and put together an itinerary that made our travels easeful and fun. Arigato gozaimashita!
