It All Began.

GLOBAL has been one of Japan’s leading specialists in overseas travel for almost 55 years. In just two years after the deregulation of overseas travel in 1964, our predecessor “Europe Cultural Studies Association” was established in Kagoshima. A Royal Dutch Airlines flight was chartered and 137 young people including junior high school students were dispatched to Europe for cultural exchange. GLOBAL, formerly offered educational travel for students since the inaugural European tour, contributed to breaking the mold that travel is something experienced exclusively by the upper classes.

Now, with the special brand of know-how and long years of experience, we offer tours with specific themes for discerning travelers: Concert Cruise with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra on the Western Mediterranean Sea, a special collaboration with Relais & Châteaux, a tour flying into Antarctica, a journey on world-renowned luxury train represented by Rovos Rail and Blue Train. In recent years, we have also focused on domestic tours for senior guests who are incapable of traveling abroad. With the cooperation of our partners throughout Japan, we can offer an experience beyond the reach of individual travelers.
