Japan- A Where Old Meets New

A fascinating country of contrasts, here you will find trendy, futuristic cities surrounded by impressive skyscrapers, embracing the latest technology. Just a rapid train ride away, you can immerse yourself in traditional tea houses where ancient tea rituals still exists, or wander around exploring mysterious historical temples set against gorgeous natural backdrops.

Limitless Holiday Options

Where do we even begin? Japan is a country with a fascinating culture and past. There is so much to see and do, so let us help you maximise your time. Be sure to get a rail pass so you can travel swiftly between regions on the Shinkansen (bullet train).

The North of the country offers skiing and snowboarding opportunities, while the western regions offer a chance to explore the countryside and traditional houses form the Edo period.

Marvel at skyscrapers in thrilling Tokyo while you try to decide where you will enjoy delicious cuisine. Boasting more Michelin star restaurants than any city in the word, Tokyo is a foodie’s paradise.

From Tokyo, head South to Kyoto where you can spend days losing yourself amongst fascinating temples. Not to be missed is a show at Gion, Kyoto’s geisha district. Or lose yourself in the incredible bamboo forest at Arashiyama. To experience something truly different, attend a sumo match as the  majestic wrestlers compete for the Emperor’s cup.  

For a more laid-back vibe, head to the coast or take a short trip to Fuji Five Lakes where you can marvel at magnificent Mount Fuji in all it’s splendour. Luxuriate in natural hot springs as you connect with nature on another level.

Travel back in time as you examine the country’s sobering past at Hiroshima Peace Memorial, or the Nagasaki Peace Park, along with a wide array of museums and shrines.

It's easy to get around quickly on the Skinkansen, the country's famous bullet train. 

The possibilities are limitless- we design bespoke itineraries based on your interests, style and budget.

Time Difference

Best Time to Go

The best time to visit Japan is during spring March-May and autumn September-November. During this time you will have the opportunity to view beautiful cherry blossoms or bright red leaves. Note: it can also be very crowded at this time. The summer months (June to August) offer ideal conditions for hikers in the Japanese Alps and Hokkaido’s wild national parks. Elsewhere, the weather is hot and humid. Rainy season begins at the end of May until the middle of June or July.
Make note of Japan’s national holiday mid-August or mid-July, (depending on the area) and the Golden Week (between April 29 and May 5), which are busy times for residents.
