Day 1

Fly from the UK to Tokyo.

Days 2-5

Tokyo

Boasting record-breaking bullet trains, more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other city, and the world’s tallest free-standing tower, Tokyo is known for pushing boundaries. Meet your group, and then onto the exploration. Don’t miss the Shibuya Crossing, the ‘Times Square of Tokyo’, this famous intersection comes complete with towering billboards, neon signs and throngs of pedestrians. It’s the perfect place to check the city’s pulse. While in Tokyo, you’ll have a go at making your own sushi at a market cooking class.

Included Excursion:
Cooking class, walking tour, temple/shrine entry fees, Hakone cable car, Lake Ashinoko boat cruise

Days 6-7

Takayama

Takayama, or Hida-Takayama as it’s often known, is the Japan of your dreams. Picture a town of traditional wooden houses, ornate 17th-century buildings, plenty of temples and shrines from the Meiji era, and an attractive riverside setting, complete with painted red wooden bridges. Not only that, but it makes a great base for excursions to the teahouses and hiking trails of the Northern Japan Alps. While in town, you’ll take part in a food and culture walk to learn more about the local traditions.

Included Excursion:
Takayama walking tour, Showa Museum entry, Takayama morning market, Shirakawago Village visit

Days 8-9

Hiroshima

Your next stop is bustling Hiroshima, a city that has risen from its infamous past. Hiroshima will forever be known for the terrible events of 6th August 1945, but those expecting a sombre place will be pleasantly surprised – it’s bright and vibrant with some pretty spots, such as the Peace Memorial Park. A real highlight will be your trip to Miyajima Island, famous for its torii gate that ‘floats’ at high tide. See if you can spot wild deer and be sure to try the delicious local grilled oysters with miso sauce.

Included Excursion:
Hiroshima walking tour, Okonomiyaki dinner, Miyajima Island day trip, Visit to Hiroshima Peace Park, A-Bomb Dome & Peace Museum

Japan’s imperial capital for more than 1,000 years, this stately city is home to some of the country’s most impressive gardens and more than 2,000 historic temples. Sit down to enjoy some delicious sake at Gekkei-kan, stroll the Gion District and discover the iconic Himeji Castle - to name a few.
