Japan

Japan will take you from fascinating, commercial cities to tranquil water gardens, temples and serene geishas

In your mind’s eye, do you see teeming streets lit by neon and lined with dazzling shops? Or golden temples floating on tranquil lakes? Ask one of our experts and they’ll show you both Japans.

Tokyo has to be one of the most up-to-the-minute capital cities on the planet. Glittering office towers stretch skywards carrying with them huge neon signs flashing graphic advertising messages. The streets buzz with people. The shops are crammed with the most advanced electrical goods, and the restaurants range from the ultra-sophisticated, serving amazing sushi, to eat-as-you-go noodle and sake bars. This a fascinating city; alive to every form of artistic, cultural and popular entertainment imaginable.

But it isn’t the whole story of Japan.

Ask one of our experts on Japan – and they’ll tell you about their experiences. About majestic mountains and hot springs. About antiquated towns dating back to the Edo period. About Kyoto, the cultural center of Japan, with its 2000 temples and shrines dedicated to Japan’s unique Shinto religion.

They'’ll tell you about seeing geishas disappearing like ghosts into mysterious doorways, golden temples that float on water and immaculately manicured gardens – oases of breathless calm.

Have our travel experts create you a tailor-made vacation to Japan. They’ll suggest you travel by fast, economic bullet trains – and recommend an itinerary that includes the early April cherry blossom season.
