Japan Adventure

This action-packed journey by high-speed railway covers all of Japan's iconic sights. We explore Tokyo's neon-lit streets, take a cable car to view Mount Fuji and discover Kyoto's tranquil temples. Travelling off the normal tourist trail, we visit the site of the world's first atomic attack at Hiroshima and uncover the country's rural charm with a boat trip to Hirado Island.

Tour Highlights

  • Tokyo - Explore the neon bright Capital city, gateway to Japan
  • Bullet Train - Experience comfortable rail travel at an average speed of 164 mph
  • Kyoto - See the traditional side of Japan, stunning temples, immaculate zen gardens and geisha
  • Hiroshima - Reflect at the site of the world's first atomic attack
  • Hirado - Take a boat trip around the peaceful, unspoilt 99 islands
