I’d like to help

Sometimes all the information out there – even on TheRealJapan.com – can be overwhelming.

My travel planning service is designed to help you cut through the noise and refine a trip to Japan best suited to your budget, interests and time.

I offer Japan travel planning services starting at just $150 for my Essential Japan Travel Package. (This is currently a discounted introductory offer.)

Here’s how it works:

  • I send you a Japan Travel Questionnaire which helps you define what you want from your trip
  • I review your completed questionnaire and use it as the basis for preliminary travel research
  • A 45-minute Skype Call where we chat through your travel needs in more depth, based on your completed questionnaire and my preliminary research
  • I then use the information and insight gathered from the questionnaire and the call to build you a bespoke travel plan
  • I send you your Personal Travel Plan ideas with links to resources where you can make direct bookings
  • Includes a copy of my book "How to Travel in Japan Without Speaking Japanese"

Please note that as I am not a travel agent, I do not make reservations or bookings for you.

However, I can supply detailed travel ideas including links to tours, destinations, accommodation and transportation, which you can directly book yourself.

In some cases these may be for services that pay a commission to TheRealJapan.com, which helps keep my pricing low.

Hello, I’m Rob Dyer. I write, publish and travel.

I lead an ever-growing community where I inspire and help folks all over the world explore Japan off-the-beaten track.

I've been having adventures in Japan, off the tourist routes, for almost twenty years, and yet I still feel like I have only seen the tip of the iceberg of this amazing country.

I have a Japanese wife and an adorable, if slightly mad cat, named Salvador.

I started TheRealJapan.com to share my passion for travelling in Japan. To offer inspiration and resources to anyone who wants to discover Japan beyond the clichés. The Real Japan.
