"Responsible travel should be the norm, the model, the standard"

Here at TourInJapan, we aim to change the way we travel. To do so, we have to change the way we think about traveling, we have to make every trip a responsible one.

#1

With the Green-Score, we prioritize green tours, experiences, and accommodations.

TourinJapan has created the Green-Score, the rating that sheds light on more responsible tours and accommodations! It’s easier for you to make the right choice.

The 4 criteria that settle the Green-score:
  1. Keep it Local: TourinJapan wants to keep your money local to develop regional economies and preserves traditional culture. We prioritize tours with local guides that sheds the light on locally-owned shops and restaurants.
  2. A new path, a new adventure: TourinJapan prioritizes tours that get you off the beaten path. There are still plenty of hidden gems in Japan!
  3. Low carbon footprint: TourinJapan prioritizes tours that have no carbon emission. We give the best rating to walking Tours, bicycle tours, and journey with electric transportation.
  4. Less plastic use: TourinJapan gives a full rating to tours that leads to less consumption of plastic. We want to push local guides to suggest alternatives to travelers.
