Your luxury escorted tour of Japan perfectly combines ancient and modern, urban and countryside. You will start your Japanese adventure in the capital, Tokyo. Tokyo is thought of the modern metropolis. It is certainly true and you will have the chance to visit the famous commercial area of Ginza, the large department stores and feel its frenetic pace and vibrancy. Yet, Tokyo retains many fascinating historic sites. Fascinating, stunning temples are plentiful with the Meiji Shrine dedicated to the Emperor and his wife being a particularly lovely example of a Shinto shrine. The National Museum has the world’s largest collection of art and antiques, including delicate kimonos and ancient Samurai armour and weapons. Away from the buzz is the tranquil Imperial Palace East Garden, part of the royal complex. Your holiday to Japan also incorporates Kyoto, the historic capital for over a thousand years. Its legacy of ornate temples, palaces and Zen rock gardens gives a glimpse into the world of the traditional Japan of the geisha. The temples of the Silver Pavilion, Ryoanji and the World Heritage listed Kiyomizu help to make this a very special place. You escorted tour will take you to Hiroshima, a place that has worldwide notoriety for the events of 1945. It is a place for reflection at the A-Bomb Dome and Peace Memorial Park. Nearby there is a chance to retreat to the 6th century Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima Island, which is considered a holy place. Your luxury tour of Japan has opportunities to appreciate its wonderful landscapes. Iconic Mount Fuji needs no introduction. Close by is Lake Kawaguchi with its hot spring bath and a little further on Hakone National Park. Here you will have a chance to encounter Owakudani Boiling Valley and the steaming vents of the volcanic crater created by the eruption of Mount Hakone 3,000 years ago. Travelling between the many highlights by Bullet Train you will have time to enjoy the contrasts of this enchanting land. Your escorted tour of Japan offers all you could imagine in its frenetic energy, tranquil retreats, spirituality and fantastic scenery – an unforgettable experience.
