Trails of Japan

Small Group Holiday



days from


Japan is a study in contrasts between traditional and modern. Large bustling cities like Tokyo are only a short journey from traditional villages. Pop culture exists next to the grace of a geisha, bullet trains next to the spare beauty of a Zen rock garden. There is temple-rich Kyoto, beautified by cherry blossoms and fall colours. This trip will show you the Land of the Rising Sun in all its contrasta. Walks will take you through gorgeous countryside, along a stone-flagged twisting, craggy post road lined with tea houses and plaster and wooden buildings. Walk up through a bamboo grove to your ryokan, a traditional Japanese inn. Indulge in the fabulous food and explore bustling cities, temples and markets, chatting and posing for photos with local people. This is Japan at its best.
