About Us


All About JapanRailPass.us

It's always nice to know who you are buying from so here is a little more information about who we are.

InsideJapan Tours is a leading Japan specialist tour operator, with offices in the US, Japan and the UK and it is our Boulder Office which fulfills orders for the Japan Rail Pass. Currently we have a small team of eleven staff.

A little bit of history
The company concept was born in the fall of 2000, as university friends Alastair Donnelly and Simon King were journeying across Russia on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Having both spent the previous three years teaching English in Toyota City, they wanted to give others the chance to experience and discover a country they had both fallen in love with - and most importantly, without having to break the bank to do so.

Over time the idea flourished into the award winning travel company you see today, organizing both Small Group Tours and Self Guided Independent journeys to all corners of the Japanese archipelago.

Born out of the UK, in May 2010 the inaugural US Office was opened in Boulder and services the needs of all our North American clientele.
