Start in Tokyo and end in Kyoto, the Highlights Of Japan trip is a guided active and outdoor tour that takes 8 days. You will travel through Tokyo, Kyoto and Kanazawa in Japan. Highlights Of Japan is a small group trip which 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 Osaka we try street food and in Kyoto we relax in perfectly manicured Zen gardens.

“The trip notes recommend that travellers should take US dollars. South African Rand it a lot more useful as their are limited chances to change money during the trip. Rand it accepted everywhere.”
