Japan

Japan is the harmonious coexistence of old and new, where technology and tradition merge

Tours in Japan

Our Japan tours are sure to ignite any traveller's wanderlust. It is a place simultaneously steeped in centuries of highly revered traditions and a pioneering force at the cutting-edge of technology and innovation, hurtling at breakneck speed towards the future. 

The cities are mesmerising, with Kyoto's haven of temples, shrines and gardens, or downtown Tokyo's kaleidoscope of colourful adverts and bustling streets. But trips to Japan should be about balance, and all our Japan trips take in its phenomenal natural beauty, from the perfect cone of Mount Fuji to the near-magical onsens, or thermal pools, that dot the countryside. 

Look through our trips in Japan below and find a balance that suits you.

Japan in depth

Our adventure holidays in Japan are incomplete without taking the time to savour the country's cuisine. Seafood lovers will adore the fresh flavours of sushi, and who could resist the perfect bowl of udon or soba noodles after a long day exploring? With the highest number of Michelin-starred restaurants in the world, it's no wonder Japan tours often focus on the food, but there's the drink to consider too - from the highly nuanced and ritualistic tea ceremonies to sipping traditional, warming sake.

The country has four distinct seasons, each with its own appeal, and when planning trips to Japan it's best to pick the one that excites you best. You could go in spring, when one of nature's greatest phenomenon is happening. The sakura, or cherry blossom, is spectacular, and many holidays are timed to celebrate the beautiful blush of delicate pink blossom that coats the country. In summer, the Japanese Alps are at their best and walkers can head out on two feet to follow ancient trails rich with history. Less well-known is the autumnal koyo, or autumn leaves – a stupendous burst of colour across the forests. Trips to Japan timed to catch these colourful displays are guaranteed to make you reach for your camera, to capture the memories forever.
