OVERVIEW ITINERARY TOUR DETAILS REVIEWS SUGGESTED HOTELS

Explore Japan’s cities, valleys, villages and hills. Visit vibrant Tokyo, beautiful Kyoto, and welcoming Hiroshima. Discover the less visited area of the Kiso valley and the unseen charms of Japan’s smallest main island, Shikoku.

Board a boat for a cruise down the Sumida Gawa River; seeing Tokyo from the water, and see a short tea ceremony on a tiny island in the heart of the city. Journey to Nikko National Park, home to the Toshogu-shrine complex.

Leave the bustle of Tokyo for the stunning Kiso Valley region and the beautifully-preserved town of Tsumago. Stay in a traditional Japanese minshuku, indulging Japanese style with a kaiseki, a beautifully presented meal of many small courses. Hike through the countryside and past the houses and fields of local residents.

Stay in a ryokan, a more upscale version of a minshuku. Stay in a town which was once cut off from the rest of Japan due to its inaccessible location.

Enjoy another train ride through beautiful scenery to a 17th century ancient castle town. Visit Hiroshima, a vibrant, interesting metropolis with friendly, welcoming people and a thriving arts scene. See the Floating Torii Gate of Miyajima Island; one of Japan’s three most beautiful structures. Journey to Japan’s smallest main island, Shikoku.

See beautiful Kyoto, home to 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a million photographic moments. Try out the local sake and learn how to make classic Japanese dishes.
