A fantastic trip through stunning Japan, with stops in Tokyo, Mount Fuji, Kyoto and more, including all travel and exciting excursions

It's arguable that no country combines its age-old traditions with its future-bound attitude quite like Japan. From the calming rituals of glorious geishas, to the hectic hubbub of an electrified Tokyo, Japan is a truly unique destination. Add to this the draw-dropping scenery of Mount Fuji and stunning parks of Kyoto and you’ve got a destination like none other.

Whether you’re interested in its Michelin-starred present – it has the highest number of stars in a city – or its historic temples, you’ll find Tokyo a fascinating place to start this 12-day Japanese tour. With further stops in Kanazawa, Kyoto and Nara, you’ll want to have your camera ready for this impressive itinerary of Japan’s traditional and contemporary sides.

Following your international flights from the UK, you’ll arrive in Tokyo, where you can explore the city alone before enjoying a half-day guided sightseeing tour of some of its (literal) high points. After enjoying the view from the observation deck of Tokyo Tower, you can visit the Imperial Palace Plaza, the Asakusa Kannon temple and Ueno, where Tokyo's first coffee shop once stood.

With your heads still very much in the clouds, the tour moves on to Mount Fuji. During a full-day excursion, you’ll sail on Ashi Crate Lake, journey to the peak of Mt. Komagatake and take a cable car ride up to the spiritual Hakone Shrine, Mototsumiya, all while soaking in the views of this active volcano.

Back in Tokyo, the attention turns to more modern tastes and guests are invited to enjoy an optional street-food tour of Harajuku, as well as the shops of Takeshita and Omotesando hills. It’s worth it just to try the local Harajuku crepes. You’ll also be invited to purchase more traditional wares – think ceramics and lacquerware – in Kanazawa during an overnight stay.

Hopping on the train to Kyoto, you’ll swap gourmet attractions for geishas and traditional architecture in Pontocho, as well as the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Nijo Castle and Kinkaku-Ji Temple, as part of a guided tour and two-night stay. Your final day will be spent touring Nara and ticking off yet more World Heritage Sites, including one of the world's largest wooden structures, before returning to the UK with a full belly and camera roll.
