Marvelling at the harmonious contrast of Japan’s old and new. Enjoying three exhilarating rides on the modern marvel that is the bullet train. Experiencing a traditional Japanese tea ceremony in Kyoto, the country’s ancient capital (and birthplace of this refined ritual).
Ancient and ultra-modern sit shoulder to shoulder in Japan. On this Japan itinerary, we’ll experience both over two weeks, 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). Our Japan tours travel in spring, when cherry blossoms and hydrangea bloom; in summer, when you can time your tour with the fascinating Gion Festival; and in autumn, when maple trees are a blaze of fiery red and orange. In April and October, some dates coincide with the colourful Takayama Festival, and May and September also offer opportunities to experience a Sumo wrestling tournament. Which will you choose?
