Japan itineraries

There is so much to see in Japan that you could very easily spend weeks here, exploring the different islands. But this is not usually a luxury that most families have, so we have created two sample itineraries.

Our ‘Highlights of Japan’ is a two week trip that ticks off many of the highlights, with ample time in Tokyo, Kyoto and Hiroshima, as well as some less well known gems. If time (or budget) does not allow for a longer trip, we have combined our top picks in our shorter ‘Japan in 9 days’ tour, which includes Tokyo and Kyoto, whilst also spending time in the countryside in Hakone. As ever, we can tailor the trip to your own specific interests, suggesting alternatives places to visit depending on your interests.

Please note that for most travellers, our tours in Japan operate very differently to tours in other destinations in that much of the trip is self-guided. Prior to your tour we will send you extremely detailed trip notes, which will have full details on how to get around, suggestions on places to visit, details of your hotels and so on. Travel in this way is very straightforward and helps to keep the costs manageable. However, if you would prefer to be guided and escorted throughout, this can also be arranged.
