Discover traditional customs
Take a guided walking tour and discover the 'Old Japan' behind its imperial capital Nara. Atmospheric Kyoto is another destination brimming with history and is home to the ancient Kiyomizu-dera Buddhist temple, as well as the Golden Pavilion which is famous for the striking reflection it casts in the surrounding pond.
For an unforgettable experience, visit the most spiritually significant mountain in Japan, Koya-San where many tours include an overnight stay in temple lodging, a traditional monk's dinner and morning prayers. Another custom you can experience first-hand is a tea ceremony, an ancient tradition that originated in the 9th century.
Culture and cuisine
Cultural orientated tours provide a great insight into Japan’s diversity. One of Japan’s most renowned competitive sports is Sumo wrestling, and if the timing is right you can watch a match at one of the tournaments held six times a year. Alternatively you can visit the ‘stables’ that the wrestlers stay in and learn about the traditional contact sport.
Guided tours may also highlight annual festivals including the Gion Summer Festival, where you will witness an array of exquisitely decorated floats parade through the streets of Kyoto. If you’re more interested in the flavours of Japan, engage your tastebuds and sample traditional dishes and delicacies bought fresh from the markets on a culinary tour.
