Immerse yourself in the unique and fascinating culture of Japan. Encompassing the essentials with futuristic cities, imperial heritage and magnificent nature, this tour incorporates a number of experiences that give your holiday a truly authentic edge.
Japan is a country of captivating contrasts, where ancient gods rub shoulders with modern technology, skyscrapers give way to paddy fields and bustling crowds disperse into the classical gardens. This tour is the perfect introduction to this fascinating archipelago.
Traditional versus modern, nature versus urban – Japan is a land of contrasts. This exhilarating tour encompasses it all, delving deeper into Japan's rich past, present and future, covering robot restaurants to tranquil temples to potent saké and all that's in-between
A passageway of vermillion torii (shrine gates) winding across a forested hillside, Fushimi Inari-Taisha is one of Kyoto’s most memorable sights.
The Temple of the Golden Pavilion, Kinkaku-ji is one of Kyoto’s most popular sights, and it’s easy to see why! This entirely golden pavilion sits amongst gardens complete with reflective pond.
This tranquil Zen garden is considered Japan’s most famous. Whilst the meaning of the garden is not none, it is thought to be a puzzle set by a Zen Master for his students.
Gion is Japan’s best known Geisha district, an area full of old-style architecture and teahouses. If you’re lucky on your visit, you may see a geisha scurrying to her next appointment.
A tea ceremony is quintessentially Japanese, and a wonderfully calming process. Witness the ceremony of cleansing of the utensils, preparing the tea and finally its pouring and serving.
