Japan
Japan - Map

Before travelling to the Land of the Rising Sun, we tend to think of the country as a fairly homogenous destination. The reality, however, is that this is a diverse country, as the archipelago encompasses everything from snow-capped volcanoes in the north to tropical island paradises in the south.

Go on a package holiday to Japan and experience the contrast between major cities where order prevails despite the huge crowds, as is the case in Tokyo, with the serenity that you will experience on the Philosopher's Walk in Kyoto. You can enjoy the punctuality and extreme speed of the bullet train on a trip to the poetic Mount Fuji, or to Himeji or Matsumoto, to see the medieval wooden castles.

What's more, the Japanese culture always surprises, with its emphasis on good manners, absolute respect for one another and the importance that is given to personal space, even in such big cities as these.

'We really enjoyed our trip to Japan and thank you for providing us with flight, accommodation and railcard. It gave us a good framework to work from.'

“Before we left for Japan I was a little concerned that our holiday would probably be centred around cities but came to realise that the cities were excellent centres from which to plan a variety of day trips.

‘I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Japan.’
20 July 2018

“‘The people are so different from us and are so humble. The excursions were worthwhile with the Kyoto and Nara trips being the best. We managed to use the rail pass to go to Hiroshima which was the highlight. So much to see close to the station so a fantastic day- the bullet train made the trip easy and gave us an extra day’
