Essential Japan Overview

Even today Japan symbolises the exotic, the unknown and the unfathomable, and exudes a sense of complete ‘otherness’ that draws visitors to its fascinating, volcanic shores. A wealth of World Heritage shrines, temples and gardens as well as modern Japan with its ultra-efficient transport system and tall skyscrapers await discovery on this tour.

Start in the capital city Tokyo and explore the main sights of the city with your private guide. Spend a day in scenic Nikko, known for its ornate Toshogu Shrine. Take a rejuvenating soak in a hot spring at Hakone and then travel on to Kyoto, a fascinating city that echoes tales of a rich royal past.
