“A packed and very varied two weeks from the majesty and beauty of old Kyoto, through to the traditional ryokans in the Japanese mountains and finally the hustle and bustle of downtown Tokyo. The travelling was a joy in clean, comfortable and punctual trains. The Japanese people were friendly and polite and always happy to help.
The shrines, temples and breathtaking scenery were memorable but so was enjoying traditional Japanese restaurants and being introduced to a vast selection of street food.”

Japan - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

A trip to Japan always presents an alluring mix of impressive historical delights, great cultural legacy and mind-blowing futuristic architecture. Considered to be one of the top fashion and entertainment destinations on the planet, Japan can heal the weariest of travelers and fascinate people from all walks of life through unique splendors like Zen rock gardens and geisha dances. Visiting Japan is all about becoming a part of its rich culture and interacting with the locals.

Tour Highlights

  • In Tokyo, shop on Nakamise Street, get in touch with Japanese history at the Sensoji Temple and observe the cityscape from the Tokyo Sky Tree.
  • When you are in Kyoto, visit the Nanzenji Temple, one of the most significant Japanese Zen temples, relax in the Heian-jingu Shrine and garden and tour the impressive Nijo Castle.
  • Come to Osaka to enjoy the spectacular nightlife and delicious cuisine on Dotonbori Street. In addition, visit the Osaka Castle, one of the most recognizable landmarks in Japan, and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere in its park.
  • Visit Nara, the city where deer roam freely in the park. Also, go to the Todai-ji Temple, which houses a giant Buddha statue.
  • Explore the Itsukushima Shrine, one of Japanese most sacred places, on the Miyajima Island near Hiroshima.
  • Discover Kobe, a pleasant city set in a beautiful environment between mountains and Osaka Bay.

Travel Tips

  • Deers in Nara tend to become aggressive when it comes to food, so be cautious.
  • Try souvenir snacks in Kyoto such as Yatsuhashi, Konpeito and Carre de Canelle.
  • Bow your head when you thank and greet the Japanese.
  • Always have cash because Japan is a cash-based society. You may be surprised how many famous stores don’t accept cards.
  • Always carry hand sanitizers with you. Soap is not available everywhere.
  • Japan is a safe country for travelers, but practice caution as much as you would back home.
