ABOUT THE ITINERARY

And where better to begin than in the hectic, mesmerising capital of Tokyo. You’ll ride the famous subway – using your pre-loaded Manaca card – to discover an intriguing mix of gleaming shopping malls, ornate temples and world-class dining.

From Tokyo, it’s on to Hakone via the well-known and super-efficient bullet train. Far from the bright lights of the city, your charming ryokan has its own outdoor onsen overlooking the mountains and forest. Last but not least you’ll arrive in Kyoto, Japan’s cultural heart where you’ll be able to immerse yourself in its shrines, classic gardens and tea houses.

Your ryokan has its own infinity-style hot spring bath overlooking the mountains, as well as private open-air baths in each of the guestrooms.
