Complete Japan Discovery
*2019 dates just added*
Encompassing a cruise around the Japanese isles and tours of Mount Fuji, Hiroshima and Kyoto, this comprehensive holiday to the Far East is a once in a lifetime experience. Mount Fuji, ancient temples, tranquil gardens and speeding Bullet trains are but a few of the sights on offer. Starting off in Tokyo, the modern capital of Japan, you will visit Mount Fuji and Lake Hakone, as well as experience the world famous Bullet train. Then cruise around the Japanese archipelago and breathe in the scenery on show such as snowcapped peaks, misty inlets, tranquil fishing harbours, lush greenery, towering waterfalls, bubbling hot springs and colourful temples perched on rocky outcrops. End this immersive holiday with a two night/three day tour of Kyoto (the ancient capital of Japan), Hiroshima and the iconic red shrine in the sea at Miyajima. Why not cruise in April and take in the Spring Flower Festivals? Or travel at the end of October to witness the stunning autumnal colours on show. The choice is yours.
Kyoto with escorted tours: At the end of your cruise enjoy a three day fully escorted tour from Kyoto - the ancient capital of Japan until 1868. Visit ancient castles, enjoy quiet contemplation in imposing temples and marvel at golden masterpieces shimmering in classical gardens. No visit to Japan would be complete without a trip to Hiroshima and the red Torri gate which seemingly floats on the water at Miyajima - one of the top three scenic spots in Japan. The A-Bomb Dome in Hiroshima is an absolute must-see as it was one of the few buildings left standing after the blast and has been preserved in its skeletal state as a tangible link to Hiroshima's unique past. On your final day, you will be treated to a full day departure tour of Kyoto where you can learn about the short but fascinating history of the red Shinto Shrine in the tranquil gardens of Heian Jingu, ponder the art of meditation at Kiyomizu-dera (the temple of the Goddess of Mercy) and round it all off with shopping trip to the famous Gion district.
