Kuroko Boutique Tours

We specialise in original and creative holidays to Japan catering for guided small groups as well as custom itineraries for self-guided travellers.

What is Kuroko?

Kuroko are stagehands in traditional Japanese Kabuki theatre, dress all in black. They move scenery and props on stage, aiding in scene and costume changes. The kuroko aid in providing a seamless experience behind the scenes. We take the same approach when it comes to arranging your trip.

We plan, organise and show you the best of Japan.  Our tours are 100% Kuroko-made. We do not outsource any process of your exciting tour. 

Private photo tour 

Rika excelled in every aspect of planning and running our trip. She listened to our needs and desires, thought about the best solutions, formulated plans and then executed them flawlessly.
During the trip itself, Rika was a joy to work with. She is smart, knowledgeable, efficient, responsive, thinks on her feet extremely well, is willing to make adjustments based on opportunities that present themselves and never loses her equilibrium and good cheer.
The highest compliment I can give Rika is that by the end of the trip she was another of our group of good friends and intrepid travellers, exploring together and having a great time.

I can without hesitation powerfully recommended her to any individual or group who wants to have an experience that goes deeper into what Japan is all about.

Living Local Tour

I was very impressed by the diversity of locations, accommodations and experiences we shared on this trip. The food was outstanding throughout the trip and I liked that Rika took us to unique and fun places for lunches and dinners. Leading a photo tour for a group of very seasoned travel photographers requires a confident, knowledgeable leader who can manage and meet the unique expectations of each photographer. Her organizational skills, attention to detail, knowledge of and passion for Japanese culture and her delightful sense of humour made our tour a great success!   Many thanks to Rika for creating a memorable experience for us.
