Japan Tour Highlights

Learn more about these amazing places to visit on your escorted tour of Japan

Hiroshima

Hiroshima

For most of us, the word 'Hiroshima' doesn't really mean a place. It is a word for an event, a catastrophic landmark in human history. It conjures black & white images of a desolate, flattened wasteland pockmarked by a few charred skeletons of buildings,...

Kyoto

Kyoto

Kyoto and Tokyo make an anagram of each other, but that’s pretty much all they have in common. Whilst Tokyo, on the surface at least, is all high-speed trains, flashes of neon and skyscrapers. Kyoto, by contrast, is old Japan writ large, its spiritual...

Tokyo

Tokyo

Tokyo is a megatropolis of dizzying contradictions; a high-octane adrenaline rush into a neon-bright future. It has statement skyscrapers, packed trains, futuristic architecture and cutting-edge technology. But it also has ancient shrines, plant-covered...
