Ancient and ultra-modern sit shoulder to shoulder in Japan. Over two weeks, we’ll experience both, exploring high-paced cities, hushed shrines and temples, and serene gardens. We’ll attend a traditional tea ceremony, learn a little about geisha and samurai culture, catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji and whizz between cities on the sleek, slick Shinkansen (bullet train). We travel in spring, when cherry blossoms and hydrangea bloom, and autumn, when maple trees are a blaze of fiery red and orange.

Covering an area of 11.4 hectares, the Kenroku-en Garden is located outside the gates of Kanazawa Castle. It was initially created by the Maeda family back in the 1620s and was opened to the public in 1874.
The name given to the garden was derived from a book by a Chinese poet and symbolises spaciousness, seclusion, artifice, antiquity, waterways and panoramas. The garden is the epitome of a traditional Japanese garden comprised of plum and cherry blossoms, artificial ponds, hills and buildings. Other plants present in the carefully designed and cared for gardens include azaleas, traditional japanese trees and irises.
This is one garden not to be missed.
Special Ryokan Option
Ryokan are traditionally styled Japanese Inns. They can be wooden buildings or modern ‘hotel’ style and vary greatly in size. With rice straw Tatami matting fl oors, futons and low tables, the Ryokan offers a truly Japanese experience. To complete the Ryokan atmosphere Yukata or Tanzen robes are provided and shoes are to be removed at the entrance to your room. Included dinner and breakfast will be a traditional Japanese fare. This option is available for one night in Takayama on day 5 and must be booked with your main holiday, subject to availability.
