Founded in 1981, Japan Experience is one of the leading European travel company specialising exclusively in Japan. Their mission is to become the primary go-to brand for all Japan lovers by having three simple ideas at the heart of its strategy : flexibility of choice, people and simplicity.
FLEXIBILITY - Travellers are free to go wherever they want to. Book whatever they want to. Japan Experience is a tour operator that offers all possible ways to not only travel, but also offers the freedom for travellers to book as little or as much as they want to.
PEOPLE - They are human. And they inspire. For them, the very essence of travel is ‘discovery of the other’, of ‘elsewhere’ and the ‘finding’ of yourself. They add the human touch, either through their salespeople or their Travel Angels.
SIMPLICITY - They let travellers focus on what’s important. They take care of the rest. It begins with their website or offices accross Europe; the one-stop shop for travellers to Japan. Information, accommodation, transport, activities, excursions, complete tours and more. They take care of the rest.
They are looking for candidates with expertise, a drive and tenacity to go beyond the norm, who can meet our high standards and expectations, bring insight and vision with a clear proven track record of progress and success in their career. They are looking for people who want to work in a truly international environment.
They value empathy, humbleness, humour, and professionalism, both in our daily work through interaction with their colleagues and clients alike.
Any personal Japan-related experience or interest is considered a bonus.
You will evolve in an international environment.
With offices in Paris, London, Berlin, Madrid, Los Angeles, and of course, Tokyo, they actively promote and encourage internal mobility within the company on a global level. If you want to experience working in Japan for example, or move to another Sales office for a new challenge in a new role; they do our best to accommodate such requests. Some of our staff will also be offered the option to work remotely. They want their people to feel relaxed but energised about what they do.
The only way to get to know Japan better is to experience it. They want their colleagues to experience their product catalog, which is why they are now offering extensive training opportunities in Japan to their Sales staff, in order to increase their knowledge and expertise of the region. In addition to enjoying the opportunity to experience first hand Japan Experience's apartments or houses, along with free domestic travel by train and various local activities
