FAQs on Japan Tours

What is the best way to tour Japan? 

If you’re unfamiliar with the country, guided trips to Japan are the best way to get the most out of your holiday. At Exodus we offer a selection of guided group trips to Japan, from cycling and walking tours to culture trips, so you can explore the country with like-minded travellers. All our group tours consist of between 8 and 16 people and are led by local experts who’ll give you a deeper understanding of the country’s history and culture as well as steering you to off-the-radar places away from the crowds.

What are some tours in Japan?

Japan is a fascinating country of contrasts that fuses ancient temples and shrines with contemporary megacities and futuristic skyscrapers. Our Japan tours take you on unforgettable journeys where you’ll discover its ancient traditions and modern culture.

Our Ancient and Modern Japan tour introduces you to the most epic sights such as Kyoto’s famous temples, the vibrant city of Tokyo and the medieval village of Tsumago. Alternatively, explore the land of the Samurai by bike or trek along the ancient pilgrimage route, the Kumano Kodo.

How many days do you need to tour Japan?

You can discover many of Japan’s highlights in 8 days but if you prefer something more comprehensive that lets you delve deeper into the country, we offer 14-day Japan trips with immersive itineraries. While one day you may be discovering the traditional way of life at a local village, the next you could be riding on a high-speed bullet train.  

What is the best place in Japan?

Japan is a colourful smorgasbord filled with cultural and visual delights, from buzzing cities and striking, modern architecture to traditional temples and natural wonders. Trips to Japan are all about getting the right balance and sampling a little of everything. While it’s almost impossible to mention all the best places, we’ve selected just a few of our favourites:

Japanese Alps – an impressive series of mountains home to the tallest and most dramatic peaks found on the island of Honshu.

Kyoto – formerly the capital of Japan, Kyoto is a beautiful city known for its imperial palaces, Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines and the geisha district at Gion.

Tokyo – Japan’s vibrant capital blends traditional temples with ultramodern skyscrapers and offers a unique experience of history and culture. In spring, you can also witness the dazzling display of the Sakura cherry blossom throughout the city’s green spaces.

Nikki – Providing tranquil respite from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, Nikko lies in the North Kanto region and is famous for its unspoilt natural beauty, with sprawling forests, waterfalls and glossy lake making up the picturesque backdrop.
