About me

My name is Jeremy Owen, Owner, Operator, and tour guide of Japan Rural Tours. I was born in Australia, but I’ve lived all over the world. I first came to Japan when I was 19 years old and worked at a pub in Kobe. Since then I have been working in Japanese tourism for a number of years, including time spend at Nippon Travel Agency as an Australian Guide.

I’ve come back to Japan and I have decided to open my own tour company and share my love of rural Japan.

I am truly blessed to call Japan my home and I hope to share that love with you. I will work to make your guided tour with me the highlight of your trip to rural Japan.
