Japan holidays

An intoxicating country of contrasts with stunning landscapes, fascinating history and age-old traditions

Japan's unique culture and startling contrasts make it a captivating holiday destination. From the modern, high-tech capital of Tokyo, with its futuristic neon-lit streets, Michelin-starred restaurants and quirky pop culture, to the timeless traditions, evocative geisha districts and beautiful temple gardens of the ancient imperial city of Kyoto; the tranquil beauty of the Japanese Alps and the haunting history of Hiroshima, this rich country offers an abundance of vibrant cities, cultural treasures and natural beauty.

  • Japan's many ancient temples, shrines and traditional geisha districts offer a fascinating glimpse into the country's rich history and heritage
  • Visit during late March or early April to enjoy the glorious cherry blossom season
  • In autumn see the maple and ginko trees ablaze with vibrant reds, oranges and golds
  • If it's your first time to Japan, we recommend our Heart of Japan tour which includes the iconic cities as well as plenty of cultural experiences
  • If you've visited Japan before or want to explore the lesser-visited areas, the Treasures of the West tour may be more appropriate, or speak to one of our Personal Travel Experts to arrange a personalised itinerary
