Japan is a fascinating land of contrasts: ancient and hyper modern, traditional and high-tech, peaceful and exhausting. Intriguing history, energetic cities, dazzling natural beauty, ancient cultural traditions and a gracious, humble people make this a remarkable destination worthy of your next adventure.
Pummel your senses with world-class food, shopping and people watching in non-stop, neon Tokyo; then hop on a bullet train to stunning Kyoto, where you can stroll among sublime gardens, temples and traditional architecture. Picnic under a pastel canopy of sakura (cherry blossoms) in bloom, and visit the famous Geisha district to learn the intricacies of traditional Japanese culture.
Explore ancient temples, imperial palaces and historic sites; experience Japanese hospitality in a comfortable ryokan (family inn); and soak your cares away in an onsen (hot spring) or sento (bath house).
For those who desire a more active Japanese adventure, you can join a trek along ancient pilgrimage trails; challenge yourself with a climb to the summit of majestic Mount Fuji; or take one of our superb cycle journeys and explore Japan's scenic backroads at handlebar level.
Whether you want to stick to Japan's fabulous cities and cultural icons or venture off the beaten track and explore the country by foot, bike or kayak, our unique itineraries can help you combine the best of Japan's contrasts into one adventure of a lifetime.
