This tour of Japan is a particular favourite with couples, especially honeymooners, or those looking for somewhere to relax at the start or end of a whirlwind trip through Japan! Experience the traditional Japan, the bright lights of Tokyo and Osaka, the quaint back streets of Kyoto, and the subtropical islands in the south pacific region.

Experiences

Tokyo's Mega-Metropolis

Arrive into Tokyo to be met at the airport by a local representative who will assist you in getting the correct train or bus to your hotel in Tokyo city centre. Our local guide will meet you on your second day to show you around and give you the confidence and knowledge needed to get around on your own from today onwards.

Yudanaka Onsen & Snow Monkeys

Yudanaka Onsen has a long history. It’s been known as an onsen (hot springs baths) resort town for hundreds of years, however it has developed and has a more modern atmosphere than some of the other nearby towns. But the traditional onsen town still remains. If you walk up the gentle slope away from Yudanaka station, you’ll find yourself stepping back through time to an older Japan. Yudanaka is a short distance from Jigokudani, home to the most famous snow monkeys in Japan. These playful wild monkeys gather around an outdoor onsen found 2km along a mountain trail for their daily wash.

Nostalgic Takayama & Feudal Matsumoto

Before arriving in Takayama, you will make a brief stop in Matsumoto to visit one of Japan’s most beautifully preserved original castles. Passage from Matsumoto to Takayama is through the mountains by public bus. No matter what time of year, this scenic drive and the incredible natural beauty of the landscape is sure to blow you away. With two nights in the nostalgic town of Takayama you will enjoy meeting the locals at the morning market, visiting the folk museum, meandering around old merchant houses and streets, and seeing sake distilleries. 

The Kyoto Experience with Full-Day Private Guide

Your next three nights will be in the ancient capital of Kyoto. Your time here will be spent visiting the World Heritage temples, gardens, and shrines. If you are interested, we can arrange for you to visit the Imperial Palace. As with all of our self-guided tours, our local Kyoto guide will spend a full day introducing you to the sights and sounds of this historic city before finishing in the Gion district at an authentic tea ceremony.

If Hiroshima and Miyajima Island were on the your list of places to visit, you can do this as a day-trip from Kyoto using the Japan Rail Pass included in your Travel Pack.

Afternoon tea with a Geisha – great insight into a mysterios Japanese culture

While in Gion, home of Geisha culture in Japan, you will have the rare opportunity to meet and chat with a Kyoto Maiko (young geisha). The story behind the Life of Geisha remains a mystery both inside Japan and out. Hear the tales of their daily life; why they decided to choose this path, what makes their world so different to the norm, and what their future might become. This one hour session with lovely cup of green tea and Japanese sweets, will be one of the most alluring moments of your trip. Unforgettable unimaginable beauty.

(Standard Package Traditional and Tropical Japan will incur a supplement for this service. Contact us for details.)

Tropical Amami Oshima

At this stage of your trip you might feeling a little weary – nothing a few nights on a tropical island can’t cure! Amami Oshima benefits from a sub-tropical climate all year round and can boastfully claim the best beaches and most scenic mountain drives in Japan. Your sea-front hotel faces out over the clear blue waters of the Pacific Ocean with white sandy beaches and the freshest food right at your doorstep. Scuba diving and other water sports can also be arranged from your hotel.

Private Full Day Guide and Driver in Amami Oshima!

On one of your days here, we will arrange a driver/guide to come pick you up and take you on an exclusive tour of the island. You will enjoy canoeing on the forested mangrove lake and taking a glass-bottom boat trip to get up close and personal with the thousands of tiny tropical fish. If you prefer to rent a car and do your own thing, we can arrange this too.
