The best places to visit in Japan depend, of course, on your own particular preferences but there are some absolute must see destinations. 

The core of any great Japan tour must include the Golden Route. Combining Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto and Nara, the Golden Route encapsulates Japan’s best places to go.

Tokyo blends the ultimate futuristic cityscape of soaring glass towers and neon with tranquil pockets of history, whilst just a short journey on the bullet train, Hakone National Park boasts incredible natural beauty, famed for its bubbling volcanic hot springs and picture-perfect views of Mount Fuji.

The image of classical Japan, Kyoto was Japan's capital for over 1,000 years and is home to no less than 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites, whilst Nara, Japan’s first capital, remains full of historic treasures including magnificent temples and adorable semi-tame deer. The Golden Route is featured on all of our Japan tours so all you have to decide now is where else to go.
