Places Visited: Tokyo, Nikko, Mount Fuji, Hakone, Kyoto
Even today Japan symbolises the exotic, the unknown and the unfathomable, and exudes a sense of complete ‘otherness’ that draws visitors to its fascinating, volcanic shores. A wealth of World Heritage shrines, temples and gardens as well as modern Japan with its ultra efficient transport system and tall skyscrapers await discovery on this introductory tour.
Start in the capital city Tokyo and explore the main sights of the city with your private guide. Spend a day in scenic Nikko, known for its ornate Toshogu Shrine. Take a rejuvenating soak in a hot spring at Hakone and then travel on to Kyoto, a fascinating city that echoes tales of a rich royal past.
