StarWars Celebration Passes not included!

Our Self-Guided Tours are vacations packages that are purchased for you as an individual or group of friends/family. No human guide is provided, you will travel across Japan with the aid of our resources to help you navigate and stay on track with the itinerary.

Enjoy Star Wars Celebration 2025 in Japan! This Tokyo Tour takes you in and around the great city of Tokyo. On this journey you will find yourself at the crossroads of the old and the new: great towers reaching into the sky next to ancient shrines.

Take a ride on the Tokaido Line and visit the great Buddha in Kamakura. See the great downtown areas of Shibuya and Shinjuku! Eat Ramen Sushi, and Curry all week long!

This bustling yet peaceful city has so much to be discovered. Great food, tradition, and people await you! Let’s go!

You’ll end your journey through Japan next to the Makuhari Messe convention center in Tokyo where Star Wars Celebration will be held.

Since Star Wars Celebration is in mid April, you may even get a chance to see cherry blossoms** during your trip!

Unfortunately we are unable to provide you with StatWars Celebration Passes as a part of this package at this time, so be diligent to get tickets as soon as they are available! (We will inform you if this changes).

** The cherry blossom trees do not always bloom as predicted. It is possible that due to an exceptionally warm or cold season that the cherry blossoms will not be in bloom during your visit in Spring.
