Mt. Fuji and the Japanese Alps

I’ve been on quite a few small group holidays and this tour definitely had the most varied and contrasting itinerary to date. I loved the mix of hiking, history, culture, city, countryside, hi-tech and low-tech; the balance between busy days and time to relax and enjoy the fabulous scenery Japan has to offer was perfect. Particular highlights for me include the extraordinarily good food, the scramble to the summit of Mt Yarigatake, the buzz of the mountain huts and the friendliness of all the people we came across on our travels.

This was an amazing trip from beginning to end, with the perfect balance between being active with the hiking, and culture. We were lucky to have amazing weather on both Mt. Yarigatake and Mt. Fuji, offering up stunning views of the Japanese alps and the area surrounding Mt. Fuji. Pictures could not do justice to what we saw and experienced. In addition to the two mountains, other highlights for me were the Ryokan - an overnight stay at a traditional local guesthouse, and cycling around Lake Kawaguchi on our day off.

Japan Tour Number 1!

Amazing holiday that flew by all too quickly. There was a great mix between the old (Kyoto, castles, shrines and temples, Magome-juku, noh theatre) and new (Shinkansen, Tokyo's neon lights, Asimo), active (hikes up Mt Yari and Fuji san) and chilled (free days round Matsumoto and the Fuji lakes). Experienced all kinds of foods, different types of sleeping accommodations (Nice hotels, Ryokan, huts), varying forms of transport, onsen baths, karaoke...

Excellent holiday, loved the military precision of the schedules between the Japanese and our Swiss Army-trained guide. Good all around itinerary and was nice to see the contrasts of Japan between Kyoto and Tokyo.

A thought provoking trip dispelling my preconceptions of over-crowding and over-pricing - neither is true.  A great opportunity to trek in the Japanese Alps/Mounjt Fuji and savour some of the country's best natural and city attractions............ 12 days is way too short to do this justice.  I shall return!

Land of the Rising Fun!

Japan is a fascinating country – modern, yet so culturally different from the west. Its reputation for being busy is not unfounded, but everything works efficiently (like the excellent rail network) and there’s plenty of stunning scenery in the mountainous regions too. The local people are a joy to interact with – initially a little reserved, but so friendly and helpful to foreigners once you break the ice and so respectful of each other in all aspects of society. Japanese cuisine, although not always to my tastes, was one of many unique aspects of the tour which added to the overall experience of a country that I found to be exotic and rewarding to visit.
