Scott Gilman

Japan

After seven years living in Japan working for Goldman Sachs—and raising three children there—Scott launched JapanQuest Journeys to deliver the sorts of experiences that most travelers to the country find very hard to access. He has now spent decades cultivating local relationships, tapping knowledgeable guides, and uncovering unusual opportunities that unlock the mysteries of Japan for visitors of every age, from children fascinated by samurai swords and manga comics to romantic couples in pursuit of cherry blossoms and secluded hot springs.  Operating from offices in both Washington, D.C., and Tokyo, he custom-tailors trips to your interests and can fill them with up-close and personal encounters with experts in pottery, textiles, kendo, taiko drumming, and more. He can even deliver a practice session at a training stable where you are seated a few feet from the wrestlers, a dinner with geisha entertainment at an introduction-only teahouse, or Zen meditation with a Buddhist priest followed by a traditional tea ceremony.

Trips start at $2,000 per day for two travelers.
