James Mundy spent 3 years living and working deep in the mountains of Gunma, Japan before moving for a completely different year in Tokyo. After working for a Japanese engineering company in the UK he joined a small dedicated team of Japan specialists called Inside Japan Tours (IJT). IJT was set up in 2000 and is the UK's longest established Japan specialist travel company. James and his colleagues have led tours and all over the country from Honshu to Hokkaido and Shikkoku to Kyushu and beyond. Whether you want to snow board in Hokkaido, dive in the subtropics of Ishigaki, hike with bears or drink with Geisha, James or one of the IJT team has probably done it already. Give him a shout!
