We love...

Standing at the foot of ancient Shinto shrines one day, and travelling at the speed of light on the Shinkansen the next. Staying at the base of mighty Mount Fuji - sipping a sake and staring out at the rooftops of Japan. Seeing wild snow monkeys soaking in steaming onsens (hot baths) in Jigokudani National Park.

On paper, nothing about Japan’s mix of ancient Buddhist temples, futuristic skyscrapers and volcano-topped national parks should work together. In reality, it combines to create one of the most beautiful countries and harmonious cultures in the world. On this all-encompassing journey we travel by road, train and Shinkansen (bullet train) from the neon streets of Tokyo into the snow-capped splendour of Mount Fuji and painted geishas of Kyoto - ticking off UNESCO-listed shrines, bathing snow monkeys and the haunting history of Hiroshima along the way.
