Our Japan trips

Throughout our Japan trips, we try to offer meaningful experiences that you’ll remember long after your return home. In Kyoto, you’ll explore the backstreets with a local guide, who’ll show you a side of the city most travellers won’t ever see. While in Takayama, you can learn all about the traditional art of Japanese gardening with a local gardener.

Meet our Japan travel specialists

Our travel specialists know and love all things Japan. They’ve eaten the food, taken the world-famous bullet trains and sung karaoke in the late-night bars (trust us, we’ve seen the pictures!). They’re passionate about Japan and nothing pleases them more than helping travellers create their perfect trip. Find out all about our Japan team and their handy tips.

Our local project in Japan

In all our destinations we like to support a local project to give something back. In Japan, we’re proud supporters of Mirai No Mori. This is an organisation that supports abused, neglected and orphaned children in Japan. They run a number of summer and winter camps, packed with activities and useful classes that help children grow into happy and successful adults.
