Plus Alpha Japan
A lot of “insider” tour operators promise but fail to deliver insider access to Japan. While the entire country remains aloof to many first time Japan visitors, Kyoto remains intentionally difficult to get to know, even to Tokyoites who visit frequently. Insider knowledge to access Kyoto’s hidden gems is especially useful here. Enter humble Californian turned Kyotite Nemo Glassman, the founder of Plus Alpha Japan whose 13 years spent living in Kyoto has given him a deep understanding of Kyoto’s idiosyncrasies, of which there are many. Plus Alpha will arrange insider tours and intimate experiences throughout Kyoto and beyond and aims to facilitate deeper experiences for travelers, whether imbibing with izakaya chefs, practicing zazen meditation with Buddhist abbots or canoodling with maiko (apprentice geisha).
