Hi, my name is Hanae.
I just finished a 4-month trip on the Silkroad, a camping tour from
Istanbul to Beijing. The trip was pretty self-sufficient; bush camp and
cook out. Throughout, I saw lots of world heritage sites, slept under
millions of stars, cooked marshmallows over bonfire and saw lots of more
remarkable things and places. It seems difficult when you have to be in
a totally unfamiliar situation, but the harder it is the more
memorable!! On this bus tour, I'm looking forward to meeting you all and
spend unforgettable time!

We are "EXPLORER「地球探検隊」"
World Explorer, offers you 'journey', not 'travel'.
can you make your trip exciting? It's whether you have someone to share
the experience. We focus on what you can do rather than where you go,
and we offer a various range of tours, which you can find yourself
filled with extraordinary experiences. "Traveling is just the means, not
the purpose," "True travel starts when it ends". The kind of tours we
offer is based on these mottoes.
What do we have to offer?
of our most popular products is the "multi-national tour". People from
all around the world can join this tour. It's offered by oversea tour
companies such as Trek America Ltd. and the Intrepid. The concept we
value is that you make your own journey and share the experiences with
tour mates in exciting environments. The destinations vary everywhere in
the world from the Americas to Africa, the Arctic to the Antarctic.
Examples are "Across the US on a van, LA to NY, 21 days" and "Africa,
Serengeti trail, 8 days".
We also offer many
kinds of tours based within Japan, which we organize on our own. They
are Trail Run, Rafting, Bicycling, etc. Recently we visited a rice
farmer and helped them harvest rice and afterwards we had amazing dinner
cooked by the local mothers.
We welcome you at our "Traveling Cafe & Bar",
serves you as an office in the daytime and becomes a bar. A cozy
atmosphere, our well-traveled stuff and members of the Explorer await
