About Eat Japan

Founded by Scott Brills in 2013, Eat Japan was created to introduce the casual traveler to off the beaten track experiences in the country he has called home on numerous occasions throughout this life.

Having studied in Japan in 2001 during his university days, he quickly fell in love, which would lead to him returning back nearly every year thereafter.

Beginning with a few stints working as a waiter and bartender at hotels and restaurants in the west of the country, he went on to have a stint DJ’ing in Kyoto, worked at a ski lodge in Nagano, and even co-founded a hotel and restaurant consulting firm in Tokyo in 2006.

Because of his love for Japan, Scott delights in leading the occasional small group tour through the country, and introducing guests to the myriad ways in which Japan is such a special country. Knowing that he couldn’t always be there to show Japan off in-person, he incorporated Eat Japan in order to assist others in making their bucket list Japan adventures come to fruition.

Nowadays Scott is assisted by a small team in Japan that helps out with itinerary planning and reservations for our guests. Together, the Eat Japan team has assisted with dozens of trips all around the country, for groups all all ages and sizes.
