“The New Travel in Luxury”: A bespoke tour for special groups at World Expo 2025

Discovering Hyogo Prefecture: Where Culture Meets Luxury

As the anticipation builds for World Expo 2025 in Osaka, an exclusive bespoke tour awaits VIPs—an extraordinary journey that unveils the hidden gems of Hyogo Prefecture. Nestled to the northwest of Osaka, this region boasts a tapestry of cultural wonders, tantalizing cuisine, and captivating experiences fit for royalty. Our meticulously crafted tour seamlessly blends luxury travel with awe-inspiring sights, by whisking your group away via air and sea.

The Sky’s the Limit: Chartered Helicopters

Picture this: You board a chartered helicopter from a private heliport adjacent to Kobe airport—no boarding pass or information gathering required. As you soar above the landscape, Himeji Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, comes into view. But that’s not all. Behold the ruins of Takeda Castle, often dubbed “Japan’s Machu Picchu,” where the phenomenon of unkai (sea of clouds) adds an ethereal touch.

Sailing the Azure Waters: Dedicated Ocean Cruisers

Our journey continues by sea. Step aboard the dedicated cruiser at Hotel Yumesenkei Besso Amahara, gliding across Osaka Bay. The destination? Shin-Nishinomiya Yacht Harbor. And don’t miss a stop at Osaka Hokko Marina. On these ocean cruisers, comfort reigns supreme, and up to ten passengers can revel in the experience. Need a sip of local Japanese sake or wine? Just ask—the crew is at your service.

Guided on Land: Bilingual Experts

Back on terra firma, hire cars await. But fear not; a dedicated bilingual guide accompanies each group. They’re not just guides—they’re storytellers, answering questions, sharing insights, and ensuring your journey remains seamless.

Unlocking Hyogo’s Treasures

From geiko performances to ancient arts, from legendary castles to culinary delights, Hyogo Prefecture beckons. “New Travel in Luxury Tour” isn’t just a tour; it’s an immersion into a world where luxury meets authenticity.


Exciting new ways to enjoy traditional forms of entertainment

While anime, manga, and kabuki take center stage as internationally recognized Japanese entertainment, the country’s rich history extends far beyond these modern phenomena. For centuries, Japan has thrived on a diverse tapestry of traditional performing arts, each weaving its own captivating narrative. From yose-style performances featuring daikagura juggling and wazuma magic tricks to the timeless art of rakugo storytelling, these cultural gems continue to flourish across the nation. Whether you’re in bustling Tokyo or a serene countryside village, opportunities to experience these performances abound year-round.

Unlocking Hidden Treasures

Despite their significance, many traditional forms of entertainment have remained somewhat hidden from the global spotlight. Recognizing this, the Rakugo Geijutsu Association has embarked on a mission to preserve and expand Japanese performing arts. Since 2016, they’ve championed creative initiatives aimed at broadening audience reach and accessibility.

Subtitled Illustrations: A Bridge Across Languages

One standout innovation involves rakugo performances—a centuries-old tradition where a single rakugoka artist skillfully portrays multiple characters using only voice, gestures, and minimal props (think towels and handheld fans). Historically, the language barrier posed challenges for non-Japanese audiences eager to partake in this oral art form. Enter subtitled illustrations: dynamic visual translations displayed in real time behind performers. Suddenly, the stories come alive for both Japanese and non-Japanese viewers, bridging cultures and inviting everyone to immerse themselves in these delightful tales.

As the curtain rises on these age-old performances, a new chapter unfolds—one where tradition meets innovation, and audiences of all backgrounds share in the magic of Japan’s storytelling heritage.  And Japan DMC by knt is here to help you unlock this exciting world of visual art for the culture hungry group. Why not make it part of the perfect incentive group experience with us?
