About Our Tours

The Social Justice Learning Collective organizes workplace and community tours conducted in English and other languages in partnership with workers, community members, activists, students, journalists, and researchers in Japan and abroad. While there are many opportunities for visitors to see tea ceremony tours or go on trips to Disneyland, our goal is to expose activists, academics and citizens from all countries to different sites in Japanese where groups and individuals are struggling for social justice, equality and voice.

We periodically organize tours, usually but not always in conjunction with other events that bring people and attention to Japan. We conduct the tours bilingually, in Japanese and English, whenever possible. (Contact us regarding other languages.) In principle, the tours are open to all. If you would like us to create a tour for your group, please contact us.

Japan Activist Tours are organized by a collective of scholars and activists. The fees we charge cover our expenses plus a donation to our partner social movement organizations.

If you would like to help us organize tours, we are always happy to collaborate.

  1. Please let me know when you repeat the Shibaura Slaughterhouse Tour. I would like to travel from the US for the educational tour. I have studied your slaughter industry, the workers (Burakumin) and the prejudice against them, and the Unions in your country. My daughter, an Animal Science major, would accompany me. Also accompanying me would be my son. Thank you very much for your activist tour opportunities.
