Japan Luxury

How It All Started

 Japan, with its rich history, breathtaking natural vistas, and world-renowned hospitality, has long been a destination that has captured the imagination of luxury travelers. That is why MIGOTO Luxury was created; we seek to capture the very essence of luxury travel to Japan, curating unparalleled experiences that unveil the many hidden gems Japan has to offer, unlocking both traditional and modern experiences that unfold an elusive tapestry of moments that cannot be found elsewhere.


美(Mi): Beautiful 

事(Goto): Things

The Origin

Our name MIGOTO Luxury comes from the old reading of two well-known Japanese characters, which could be translated into modern-day English as "a beautiful thing" or "a thing worthy of seeing." As aficionados of Japanese luxury travel, our mission at MIGOTO Luxury is to invite our guests to experience Japan through a lens of wanderlust and sophistication, discovering many “beautiful things” and “things worth seeing” throughout their journey around this unique and culturally-rich country.
