Best of Japan
Embark on a dazzling tour of Japan, and experience ancient traditions and space-age technology jostling for room in a country that’s pulsating and serene at the same time.
Enjoy the contrast between cutting-edge street fashion and hi-tech gadgets, and monumental shrines and temples in Tokyo. Try your hand at calligraphy and get decked out in a traditional kimono as you take a peek behind the bamboo screens into the hidden world of the geisha. Wander narrow streets lined with wooden houses to discover the joys of sashimi and the tea ceremony.
Leaving the city behind, experience Japan’s pristine countryside with its waterfalls, lakes, and bamboo forests. Ride one of the legendarily punctual trains into the Japanese Alps.
Spending time in Kyoto, with its tranquil temples and bustling food markets, and the city of Hiroshima – which has risen again from the ashes of war – will give you a greater understanding of old and new Japan.
