Your Destinations

Tokyo

One of the world’s most cutting-edge capitals, Tokyo is a city of contrasts. Famous for its modernity, neon-lit landscape and towering skyscrapers, it is also home to sprawling parkland, peaceful shrines and temples and lovingly tended gardens. 

Despite its love affair with manga pop culture, fashion, high-tech trends and conspicuous consumption, below the surface is a city that has its roots in ancient heritage. Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples stand close to skyscrapers as a reminder of a more contemplative time and at the heart of the hyperactive centre lies the serene Imperial Palace, the home of the ruling emperor that provides a tangible link to the city’s historical past. 

Behind the shopping, entertainment and commercial Emporia can be found quaint wooden houses, private gardens with meticulously clipped bonsai trees and the Zen-like calm of the Hamarikyu Gardens. Discover the fascinating and exquisite culture of Japan where the ancient and modern worlds collide.  The city’s reputation as a mega-expensive metropolis is ill-conceived and visitors can take advantage of inexpensive izakaya bars and neighbourhood cafes that serve delicious noodles and rice dishes. 

Hakone

South of Mount Fuji and West of Tokyo you will find a tranquil spot where the imposing slopes of Mount Fuji meet a glistening lake. A red torii, a traditional Japanese gate frames the entrance to this heavenly spot where it is easy to slow down and forget the stresses of everyday life. And at the heart of this majestic site is the snow-capped peak of Mount Fuji as it juts into the sky.

Kyoto

If you're looking for old Japan, Kyoto is a must: tranquil gardens, sublime temples and colourful shrines can be found in abundance.  While the rest of Japan has embraced modernity, Kyoto still keeps traditions alive.  Take a stroll through the Nishijin district and spy some of the older residents emerging from the machiya (traditional townhouses) to ladle water onto their porch.  

If you go by an old shōtengai (shopping street) you can admire the ancient speciality shops: tofu sellers, fishmongers, pickle vendors and tea merchants. 

Touched with the grand allure of its past, Kanazawa prides itself on being a historical jewel of Japan. It is best known for being home to one of Japan's most beautiful landscaped gardens - Kenrokuen - a castle garden originating from the 17th century. It's easy to discover this nostalgic city in a few days, admiring its celebrated penchant for the traditional arts, including hand-painted silks and lacquerware, ceramics and delicate gold leaf work. Spot a geisha at work, discover authentic tea houses and inns, and wade your way through the market.

Takayama

Established as a castle town in the 16th century, Takayama has retained its unique charm to the present day. Sights include the Sanmachi district of traditional buildings, the bustling morning markets and dozens of museums, galleries and traditional craft shops. Situated in the Japan Alps, this small city offers wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and is a good base for exploring the Hida region.

Our Offers

Discover the 'Land of the Rising Sun' with this journey, full of natural and cultural wonders. More than just the must-see attractions, discover another side of Japan with authentic experiences. Wander around the modern streets of Tokyo, a the bustling metropolis, then relax in the hot springs of Hakone, on the edge of Mount Fuji. Here you will get to discover Japanese gastronomy with a traditional dinner included. Admire the temples of the former imperial capitals Kyoto and Nara, followed by Kanazawa, off the beaten tracks between Japanese Alps and Japan Sea.
