The Highlights Of Japan tour starts in Tokyo and ends in Kyoto. It is an active and outdoor trip that takes 8 days taking you through Kyoto, Hiroshima, Kanazawa and 3 other destinations in Japan. Highlights Of Japan is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, 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.
