Day 1

Fly from the UK to Tokyo

Days 2-4

Tokyo

Arrive in the whirlwind that is Tokyo, a city like no other, with the juxtaposition of traditional and modern and past and future in evidence. Check out the stunning Sensō-ji temple for starters, then perhaps visit the electronics district at Akihabara, where you’ll find all sorts of electronic gadgets and software as well as anime and manga comics. Later on, treat the kids to a fun, and rather noisy Taiko Experience, where they’ll learn how to play the Japanese drum.

Included Excursion:
Tokyo morning tour
Taiko Experience

Takayama

Head on to Takayama in the mountainous Hida region. Takayama’s old town is particularly well preserved and retains its traditional ways of life. The best way to explore is on your Takayama Hida Furukawa cycling tour. Taking you through the farming villages and rice fields with a knowledgeable guide, who will help you understand more about life in this beautiful bucolic region, this light-hearted cycling tour is fun for all the family.
