Japan - Touring Holidays
An escorted tour to Japan offers the opportunity to experience the extraordinary history of a fascinating and mysterious country, while enjoying the comfort and excitement of a hi-tech culture.
A vast, world-class capital
Tokyo, its capital, is a vast city featuring world-class shopping, immaculate green spaces and an intriguing history. Here you’ll find districts dedicated to selling state-of-the-art electronic items, colourful markets displaying intriguing wares and neon-lit streets offering goods and entertainment of every kind. Indulge in, or simply marvel at, the unusual cuisine on offer.
Despite the modern approach in Japan, ancient influences are still prevalent. Tea ceremonies, exotic festivals and old traditions are a constant reminder of the Japan portrayed in ‘Madame Butterfly’ and ‘The Mikado’.
Relax in natural hot springs
For a chance to relax during your holiday in Japan, head to Hakone. Here you can enjoy the charming scenery and bathe in one of the natural hot springs.
A great way to travel across the country is aboard the famous Bullet Train. The route takes in Kyoto, Hiroshima and Osaka to name just a few destinations. As you journey to Kyoto you will be rewarded with views of majestic Mount Fuji. This ancient city is also home to the iconic geisha – young women trained in traditional Japanese hospitality.
Japan’s oldest temple
Travelsphere’s Japan holidays also offer the chance to visit the city of Hiroshima, which was devastated by the dropping of the first atomic bomb in 1945. In Osaka, a city also affected by the destruction of the Second World War, admire its famous castle and step back in time to 1,400 years ago to see the Shitennoji Temple – the oldest in Japan.
Every Travelsphere holiday offers exceptional value for money. Included in the price are return scheduled flights/rail travel and internal flights, where applicable, overseas transfers and transportation, carefully chosen hotels, many meals and excursions and the services of a Travelsphere Tour Manager or Local Guide.
