Japan: Land of the Rising Sun

From £3460 for 13 days
Trip Overview
This 13-day tour of Japan will introduce you to the cultures – old and new – that define this small but influential archipelago. Beginning in tech-mecca Tokyo and finishing with three nights in Kyoto, this immersive tour will also introduce you to lesser-known cities through Japan’s centre and southern reaches. Discover scenic beauty on the Hakone ropeway, sip the best sake in Takayama, find out about the Hiroshima of today and wonder at the floating torii gate of Miyajima. You’ll have a local to guide you through these lesser-known destinations and reveal layers of culture and history, plus an included Japan Rail Pass to get from A to B in style and comfort.

Itinerary & Notes
Konnichiwa! Welcome to Japan. Bursting with contemporary urban culture, there are many sides of Tokyo to explore, from fascinating museums and world-class shopping, to neighbourhood backstreets lined with hole in the wall eateries and bars. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm tonight. You can arrive at any time during the day, as there are no activities planned until this important meeting. Afterwards, join your new travel companions for an optional dinner at a local restaurant.

I thoroughly enjoyed this new destination, travelling by train, staying in traditional Japanese Guest Houses and all with a small international group of travellers and an exceptional tour leader.
She made everything work beautifully, was totally organised and
clearly enjoyed her job. We covered a lot of ground, the pace was busy and we had lots of opportunity to experience the excellent array of food Japan has to offer
