Expect thr Unexpected, this is not your ordinary tour, at all

The tour is curated and carefully managed by the seasoned culture vulture experts,

"Professor (of everything extraordinary)" Tanaka,

originally from Japan, but now a true blue.

His knowledge of Japan especially behind the curtain is extraordinary.

Some of you may remember him from the JJJ's cult radio program Nippi Rock Shop

during the 1980s and 1990s.

Prof Tanaka will be ably assisted by Aspro Boy who is a legendary traveller

who accumulated more FF points, wisdom and experience, while managing himself and others,

globally, especially in Japan.

They know both sides of weird and wonderful.

They individually or together have shared some memorable trips with

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds,  Tom Zubrycki, the ABC's Tony Jones and Geraldine Doogue,

the Go-Betweens, Blixa Bargeld, permaculture guru David Holmgren,

legendary film and TV critic Doug Anderson, TV producer Janet Bell, Tom Molomby QC, ABC's Simon Marnie, Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier, as well as members of The Johnnys and Icehouse and many others.

Together the dynamic duo will be the curators, navigators and narrators of your tour.

If you think you have seen Japan think again. Prof Tanaka and Aspro Boy

will take you on a magical mystery tour to Japan you have never expected to see.

Tour place is limited to ensure the semi-personalised tour feeling.

Why not join us on the tour will no doubt trigger the experience.
