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 Himeji, Kanazawa, Tokyo and 5 other destinations 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 Osaka we try street food and in Kyoto we relax in perfectly manicured Zen gardens.

“Towards the end of our trip the political situation in Assam became volatile with demonstrations, strikes and roadblocks. The Explore team, local agents and our tour leaders responded promptly and professionally. At no time did we ever feel concerned although we were well aware that everyone was working very hard to ensure our safety. Sanjeev Gorung our tour leader and Deep our local guide were superb. We were extracted from Assam and given a short programme of visits to cover an extra three days in Kolkata. Although we were disappointed to miss some of the trip nothing could have been done better in the circumstances.”
