Into the Heart of Japan

Escorted Group Tours

On paper, nothing about Japan’s mix of ancient Buddhist temples, futuristic skyscrapers and volcano-topped national parks should work together. In reality, it combines to create one of the most beautiful countries and harmonious cultures in the world. On this all-encompassing journey we travel by road, train and Shinkansen (bullet train) from the neon streets of Tokyo into the snow-capped splendour of Mount Fuji and painted geishas of Kyoto - ticking off UNESCO-listed shrines, bathing snow monkeys and the haunting history of Hiroshima along the way.
