With 40 years in travel and hundreds of experts ready to help you realise your dream holiday.
Japan is pretty high up on many people’s bucket lists – and understandably so. It offers a lot of things that people want from a holiday destination, putting big fat ticks in the culture, scenery, food and activity boxes. And while its world-class transport system makes it easy to travel from place to place, the language barrier can add an element of difficulty. So why not take the stress out of things and book yourself a Japan tour? Not only will the planning and logistics all be taken care of, but your accommodation will also be pre-booked and the majority of your meals will be included.
The first stop on most Japan tours is the sprawling and bustling capital, Tokyo. A real city of contrasts, here modern, cloud-piercing skyscrapers and neon-lit shopping malls stand shoulder to shoulder with ancient shrines, interesting museums and tranquil landscaped gardens. You’ll have the chance to visit historic attractions in Asakusa – one of Tokyo’s oldest neighbourhoods – shop ‘til you drop in Shinjuku and then dine out in the city’s fabulous restaurants before hitting up an all-night karaoke bar. And of course, your tour will definitely include a trip to nearby Mount Fuji – the country’s most famous natural attraction, and a real scene-stealer.
Whether you’re going for just a few days or a couple of weeks, your tour of Japan is likely to also include the storied city of Kyoto. The Japanese capital for more than 1,000 years, it’s still considered the spiritual heart of the country. Peppered with age-old attractions and cultural sites, like Nijo Castle and the Golden Pavillion – not to mention literally thousands of temples – it’s a top choice if you want to learn all about Japan’s rich history and fascinating traditions.
Other popular destinations on a Japan tour include the mountain town of Takayama – also known as ‘Little Kyoto’; Nagano, in the Japanese Alps; the attractive city of Matsumoto, famed for its superb castle; and the harbour city of Fukuoka – one of the most foodie-focused places in the country.
