From the glorious geishas of Kyoto to the irresistibly dynamic Seoul, this extraordinary trip takes in all the best Japan and South Korea has to offer

During this exhilarating 11-night Japan and South Korea holiday, you'll travel between four unforgettable destinations, kicking off with a three-night stay in glorious Tokyo. Here, you'll explore the dazzling downtown of this futuristic metropolis on a guided tour through the city, including visits to the impressive Tokyo Tower and beautiful Imperial Palace East Garden.

Next, you’ll hop aboard a bullet train to spend two nights in one of Japan's most atmospheric townscapes - Takayama. Nestled in the county's mountainous Gifu Prefecture, Takayama's present layout dates from the 17th century and boasts a wealth of museums, galleries and temples.

From here, you’ll head to Kyoto, where you'll have three nights to explore what was once the capital of Japan, including a full-day guided city tour taking in the city's top attractions. Think traditional tea rooms, tranquil temples and sublime gardens and you'll get a picture of what to expect from this colourful Honshu island city.

Finally, your trip will culminate with a three-night stay in South Korea's capital city - Seoul - staying at the glossy retreat of Courtyard Namdaemun. During your time here, you’ll embark on a tour of the city’s palaces, temples and markets, before choosing between a tour of the Korea Folk Village or DMZ, visiting the Dora Observatory and Third Infiltration Tunnel.

Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa, Tokyo (three nights)
