The unique beauty of Japan expresses itself in the delicate spring fragrance of cherry blossom and the vibrant autumn colours of its graceful maple trees. We have chosen these best of times to explore the mountain ranges, verdant plains and wave-swept coasts of a country that is perhaps associated too strongly in the Western mind with the bustling cities of Tokyo and Hiroshima, attractive as they are. Reflecting the diversity of Japan we travel part of the journey on the ultrafast Shinkansen (Bullet Train), enabling you to savour the delights of the surrounding country. A combination of history, temples, rail journeys, castles and beauty, highlight the essence of Japan as both an ancient and modern society.
