About This Trip

A visit to Japan is always one of dynamic contrasts. This is a country that never stays still, that is always inventing and reinventing, but at the same time, has its feet firmly rooted in a fascinating and beautiful ancient culture. You can see examples of this everywhere you go in Japan, from the tiny stone shrine situated beside the gigantic electronics store, or when you order time-honoured traditional food from an iPad and it gets delivered to you on a tiny conveyor belt. 

 

To understand more of what Japan is all about, it is important to get right amongst it, to travel on the rail network in Tokyo, to hear the individual songs of each rail station. To cross the road at Shibuya with a thousand other people, to stand in awe in Kyoto as geishas shyly scuttle past. We have designed this trip exactly for that. While there are touchpoints and day tours to help you settle in and find your feet, we want you to travel under your own steam, to catch the Shinkansen (bullet train) by yourself. And hey, maybe you will get a little lost, but in Japan getting lost always unearths something worth seeing, and within minutes a friendly local will come to your aid, eager to practice their English and guide you to where you need to be. 

 

This tour is split between the thriving, yin-yang of Tokyo, its buzzing electronics districts tempered by an unexpected amount of green spaces and soothing parks. Then, after a smooth, rocket-fast ride on the Shinkansen, you will arrive in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Kyoto, a truly breathtaking city, filled with architecture that is not only from another age, but feels like it is from another dimension.

Other Info
highlights

Japan is pretty much all highlights. Because of its unique culture and way of life, every single thing is interesting, from standing in a 7-11 looking at the different snack foods, to the vast underground malls in most of the rail stations. A visit to Japan is about opening yourself to everything and just soaking it all in. 

 

Tokyo is incredible and with 3 days there, you will only see a fraction of it, such is the size of the city. However, we are doing our best to make sure you see as much as possible, so we have a full-day tour that is going to showcase as much as we can fit in. You will see Meiji Jingu Shinto Shrine, the Imperial Palace and Senso-Ji Temple in Asakusa to show you the traditional side of the city. Then you will get a couple of unique views of the city from the tallest tower in the world, the Tokyo Sky Tree and then from the water on a unique Tokyo Bay Cruise.

 

In Tokyo, we matched its intensity with the intensity of our tour. In Kyoto, our tour matches its tranquillity. When you step off the Shinkansen, you will head to a local bike tour operator (optional), who will guide you through the backstreets and geisha districts of Kyoto. In the second half of the optional tour, you will cycle along the tranquil Shirakawa River, past wooden houses and willow trees before finishing up in Kyoto Imperial Palace Park.

 

location

Your trip begins in the wonderful city of Tokyo where you will spend a couple of days exploring. From there you jump on the Shinkansen over to stunning Kyoto before being transferred to Osaka to catch your onward flight.
