Unlike our group tours our private journeys do not have a Tour Leader. However, you are still in safe hands as we work closely with our expert local suppliers on the planning and organisation of your holiday to ensure that you have a fantastic time. This trip is very much self-guided and you'll have a full information pack sent to you prior to travel, which will include all of your train tickets, shuttle bus vouchers, maps, transport cards, local contact numbers and everything else that you will need to get around. We do advise you to read this pack carefully because we will make recommendations for train times and tell you how to validate your ticket, as well as telling you which platform to go to, our suggested day trips and all of the other information you'll need to make the most of your time in Japan. The great thing is that Japan's train system is simple, easy and very well trodden by travellers - it's by far the best way to travel. If you do need any reassurance during your trip, you have someone on hand with our 24/7 emergency contact number, and your guides in Tokyo, Hiroshima and Kyoto are also excellent, and will help to bring the destination to life.
Why book this trip
This trip covers Japan's must see highlights such as Tokyo and Kyoto, as well as other less well-known but equally exciting locations, with time built in for personal exploration. It's a hybrid of a self-guided adventure but with some private guided experiences to really get to the heart of Tokyo, Hiroshima and Kyoto's diverse highlights.
