Visit Japan

Day 1

Arrive Osaka

Konnichiwa friends, and welcome to the land of the rising sun.

Famed for its beauty, culture, cuisine and just a touch of crazy, this is one trip you won't be forgetting any time soon. Get settled into your hotel before joining forces with your Trip Manager & travel crew & head out to explore the local area.

Day 2

Osaka

Universal Studios, Osaka Castle, iconic Dōtonbori - today is yours to take on Osaka as your heart desires.

History lovers can experience a slice of the past at the 16th-century Osaka Castle, one of the city's best known landmarks, or those keen for a little slice of Shinto could experience Sumiyoshi-taisha, one of the country's oldest Shinto shrines. This evening, why not get to know your new travel friends over our Free Time Add-On foodie experience? We'll be heading to an Izakaya in the bustling hub of Dotonburi. These traditional little restaurants are like a trip back in time, with rice beer, sake & locals finishing up their days. Still not done for the day? We sense some traditional Japanese PATI (that's Japanese for partying) and karaoke may be on the cards....

Day 3

Osaka to Kyoto

Tuck in to your tasty breakfast this morning, you're going to need the food fuel for a full day in Kyoto.

Arriving into Kyoto, we'll kick things off with a guided tour of this beautiful, traditional city. Take in the sights of the city including temples, gardens, colourful shrines & world famous geisha girls. This evening is free for you to get to know Kyoto your way, most likely trying out local cuisine in the Shirakawa area & getting to grips with the buzzy Kyoto nightlife.

Day 4

Kyoto

Didn't feel like you had enough time yesterday to really get under the skin of this utterly unique city? We've got good news for you - today is completely free for Kyoto adventuring.

Ask your Trip Manager for the essentials on what to eat and where to go, then our best advice? Go get yourself a little lost, it's undeniably the best way to get to know a new city.

Day 5

Kyoto to Hiroshima

Ready for a totally new experience? This morning it's all aboard the bullet train, travelling at a cool 320km/hr as we make our way to Hiroshima.

A city remembered as the world's first atomic bomb target during WWII, we'll learn about both the past and present on a sightseeing tour. The rest of the day will then be free to get to know Hiroshima however suits you best - food, shopping, history, it's all here at your fingertips.

Day 6

Hiroshima

We'll start the day with a ferry ride over to Miyajima Island where beautiful scenery and miniature deer await us.

If you're impressed by the traditional Japanese gates at the entrance, just wait until you've seen the main event - the stunning Itsukushima Shrine. Culture goals ticked, we'll make our way back to Hiroshima to dig a little deeper into the city's noble history.

Day 7

Hiroshima to Tokyo

Tokyo, you're firmly in our sights.

..Welcome to the bright lights & big city vibes of Tokyo, our home for the next 3 nights. We'll dive right into this 24 hour city with a sightseeing tour of the best bits - the home of the Emperor of Japan, the beautiful Imperial Palace, and the oldest of the city's temples, the ancient Buddhist temple Asakusa Senso-ji. We'll take a walk down Nakamise Street (one of the oldest shopping streets in Japan that dates back to the 1500's) to pick up treasures for family and friends back home, brave the busiest street crossing in the world (Shibuya), then round things off at the epicentre of youth culture & fashion, Harajuku. This part of town buzzes with cool vibes & crazy fashion, and we reckon you'll instantly fall in lust.

Day 8

Tokyo (Day Trip To Hakone)

Taking a brief reprieve from the buzz of Tokyo, this morning we'll head south to Hakone for breathtaking views of some of Japan's most famous sights, courtesy of the Hakone Ropeway.

Returning to Tokyo this afternoon, we've got a Free Time Add-On we reckon you'll find hard to resist - a much needed soak in traditional Japanese hot spring baths, locally known as an Onsen. Be warned though, these hot springs are not for the shy (meaning total nakedness), but are the perfect way to unwind after a day of exploring the sights & sounds of the city.

Day 9

Tokyo

Today's our last day in Tokyo, and our last day on tour, so let's make it one to remember.

With a free day to explore Japan your way, we have a sneaking suspicion Harajuku may be calling you back - it kind of has that affect on people. Want to make your last night the weirdest, wackiest and most space age yet? We have two words for you my friends - Robot Restaurant...

Day 10

Tokyo to Hakuba

We may be parting ways with some of the group today but for those heading to the slopes, there's so much more to look forward to.

Make your own way to Tokyo station where you'll catch your included train to Nagano. Upon arrival at Nagano, take a local bus to Hakuba Station, where your time in the snow will begin...Hello Hakuba! Widely recognised as one of the world's best skiing spots, this cute mountain village is guaranteed to take your breath away. Boasting 9 resorts, 135 lifts and over 200 runs, Hakuba is a winter spots paradise. Please note: the Add-on Ski Package is unescorted

Day 11

Hakuba

Rise and shine, there's a whole ski resort out there to keep you busy, no matter your level of experience.

If you're a seasoned pro you know the drill, but for beginners or those keen for a refresher, why not opt for a couple of lessons to learn the ropes. Want to try something different? Mountain gliding is also available here and trust us, it is INSANE. Later and after a full day on the powder, why not relax tired bodies in a steamy onsen, then refuel on tasty katsu curry. This is the snow life, Japan style... Please note: the Add-on Ski Package is unescorted

Day 12

Hakuba

With one more full day in the snow, we don't think you'll need much encouragement to get up and get going.

Explore a different resort to yesterday, brave a black run to prove you can do it, or maybe get off the mountain early afternoon to spend a little more time in those ever so tempting onsens... Please note:the Add-on Ski Package is unescorted

Day 13

Hakuba to Tokyo

Waving goodbye to Hakuba this morning, we'll trace our steps back to Tokyo, making our way to Nagano Station then jumping on the train back to the big smoke.

Please note:the Add-on Ski Package is unescortedYour trip comes to an end upon arrival in Tokyo.
