About This Trip

Starting in Tokyo, the city that lives on the cusp of the future and you feel it from the moment your feet touch the ground. The streets around you are lit up in their fluorescent neon glow as millions of people make their way through the crowds as though it’s the most normal place in the world when actually it is anything but. This metropolis is alive, a breathing and living thing that sprawls and holds everyone captive in its modernity, towering skyscrapers, bustling markets and entertainment hubs; it really is one of a kind. 

 

From Tokyo you will speed through Japan’s vast countryside via the bullet train, slicing through this lush landscape to experience Imperial Japan in Kyoto with its untouched temples, shrines and World Heritage Sites you will be left in awe and feel like you have stepped into another time altogether. You will feel the streets come alive around you in Osaka and bask in its cultural diversity experiencing the buzz of city air as west clashes with east in a spectacular fashion. 

 

Our DealsAway Japan: The Land Of The Rising Sun package has it all, journeying through the major cities, relaxing in its national parks, and breathing in that fresh crisp air from the summit of Mount Fuji, there really will be no box left unticked on your bucket list. Learn how to roll Sushi, like a professional and stalk your prey as a ninja with a range of activities and excursions that will throw you into Japanese culture with full force. 

 

There will be moments to reflect too, a luxury sail along the Sumida will give you a totally different perspective of Tokyo seeing its cityscape light up the night sky along the water. Then dinner with a Maiko will let you appreciate ancient customs and traditions that have stood the test of time and war. Which is where your trip will draw to its close, at the Miyajima Island, which you will experience from the soft wooden decks of a cruise excursion followed by a truly humbling experience at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park.

Every tour will be provided in English by local experienced tour guides who know the towns, cities and areas you will be visiting so you will get a real feel for each destination and see them come to life.

 

We don’t want you to see Japan through the window of a coach or speed through the itinerary without having the opportunity to really experience the culture, the people, the tastes and smells.

There will be plenty of time for you to explore at your own pace, to discover cities as you lose yourself on their well-worn paths but with our range of excursions and packages included you will also be able to see other sides to Japan that perhaps you may not be able to do otherwise.
