Position: Content and Trip Itinerary Writer for Art Travel
Posted by: Art Travel
Location: Remote
Contract: Part-time

Thanks to JET alumna, Anne Geismann Alene (Tottori-ken, 1990-1993) for passing along the following part-time opportunity with the company she founded, Art Travel:

Our travel company Art Travel ( was founded in 2011 and is a leader in planning, arranging, and leading highly customized Japan travel programs.

Founder Anne Alene is a JET Alumna (CIR Tottori 90-93) and is looking for someone who loves Japan and is enthusiastic and dedicated to helping her with the organization, generation, and providing customized documents for the FIT clients, specialized tour groups, and pre and post tour group FIT clients.

Art Travel has two types of clients:

  • FIT (Foreign Independent Travel) clients consisting of individuals, couples, families, and small groups who want to independently travel to Japan based on a customized itinerary designed by Art Travel
  • Museum institution and art world clients consisting of art dealers, museum directors, curators, and/or development staff who want to create a special travel program to Japan (and other destinations like South Korea) with their loyal patrons, benefactors, and trustees designed and executed by Art Travel

Job description:

  • Review conversations and documents already generated for the clients’ travel itineraries that have been created for clients based on meetings related to their travel plans.
  • Work with the founder to draft and/or edit already existing itinerary proposals
  • Communicate in Japanese and English with collaborating DMC and related vendors in Japan to confirm itinerary arrangements (hotels, transport/transfers, guides when provided, special experiences/reservations, restaurant reservations when requested)
  • Refine bibliography, pre-departure, arrival information, in-country information, and restaurant recommendations for the clients
  • Write and tailor detailed final travel itineraries, by using previous trips as references and templates, working with the founder based on her itinerary consultation, and initiating necessary research
  • Help the founder to draft and research proposals for future clients


  • Ability to work efficiently with MS Office, Adobe, and Cloud platforms, e.g. Google Docs and DropBox
  • Work with Chat and SNS platforms, such as Google Docs, WhatsApp, LINE, Facebook Messenger
  • Good research skills and willingness to learn and understand this particular niche of Japan travel service model
  • Good English skills since most of the writing and editing is done in English. Some Japanese language skills are very helpful, such as texting or emailing in Japanese is a plus although the founder can assist
  • If your native language is Japanese, this is a good opportunity to improve your English writing skills or the reverse.
  • It is very helpful to have an interest or specialization in Japan travel as our company’s aim is to help our clients have a highly educational and special experience of Japan’s people, art, culture, and society.

Future Opportunities:

  • This could lead to ongoing work with our company if you like the actual work and find that it is an interesting area of Japan travel.
  • If you live in Japan, the opportunity could also lead to working with us as a part of our ground team in Japan.

Pay is $35 USD/hour: Work is requested that it is done per tour / FIT client itinerary in order of priority/travel departure date

We request a maximum of 10 – 30 hours to generate the itinerary, depending upon the type of client: (A) group tour, (B) pre-post group tour FIT (5-12 days), or (C) full-length FIT (12-21 days). The work could expand to include proposals, promotional, and website content. At present, we are rebuilding the business post-pandemic although we have a robust schedule for 2023. For now, this could be a “side hustle” and a great learning experience.

Application Process: Interested candidates can send a CV and email introduction to Anne Alene at <>.
