The Highlights Of Japan trip starts in Tokyo and ends in Kyoto. It is an active and outdoor tour that takes 8 days taking you through Kanazawa, Tokyo and Kyoto in Japan. Highlights Of Japan is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

From the bright lights of Tokyo to the tranquil temples of Kyoto, this fast-paced tour explores Japan's highlights. We take time to reflect at Hiroshima, site of the world's first atomic attack before visiting the holy island of Miyajima, dotted with beautiful temples and free roaming deer. In Kyoto we take tea with enigmatic Geishas and relax in perfectly manicured Zen gardens.
