What We Do

Bike & Hike in Japan

Bike & Hike

One Life Japan bicycle, hiking, and walking tours are based on our basic belief that The best way to have a fun, healthy, intellectually stimulating and environmentally responsible vacation - to see, feel, understand, and connect with a place and its people - is by bicycle or foot. Our walking and bike tours strive to offer you a once in a lifetime vacation that allows you to see the heart of Japan's countryside.

Environmental Education in Japan

Environmental Education

Our concept of environmental education focuses not only on natural environments, but also built environments found in cities and agricultural land. We take participants through a variety of terrain and environments looking at how geography as well as human activity influences our lifestyle and decisions. We focus on gaining an understanding of complexity that includes human needs and natural eco-systems.

Community Support Programs in Japan

Community Support

We believe in living locally. One Life Japan started as a simple desire to create vacation options that allow participants to learn more about their own local environment instead of spending money and resources to be processed through popular tourist traps. We have expanded on that idea to create learningful vacations that help to promote the growth and understanding of the small community that has opened their arms to us, as well as rural communities around Japan.
