Japan Highlights

Up to off this trip

Trip Overview

Too expensive...I don’t have the time off...I hate sushi...

That's it, we’re done with excuses. In under two weeks this trip gives you the highlights and the hidden gems. The culture and the crazy. The ultra-modern and the historic. The scenery and the cities. And all the ramen, okonimiyaki, udon, katsu, yakatori and sake your fat pants can handle (you packed those, right?). This is your wake-up call - Japan is waiting.

Worth noting…

On this trip you'll be travelling like a local... by train! This means a bit of walking between stations and hotels so we recommend packing light with a backpack or small case


Trip Itinerary

  1. Tokyo, Japan


    You’re in Tokyo, baby! Meet the group and dive into a full day city tour. Spot the Senso-ji Temple and wander along the nearby 500-year-old Nakamise shopping street selling mochi (sticky rice cakes) and geta (wooden shoes). There’s also Akihabara for the anime fans and the fashionable Shinjuku and Harajuku districts to explore. Don’t forget to walk the famous Shibuya crossing or see the Meiji Shrine while you’re at it. Phew! What. A. Day. Hungry? Thought so. Bond with your trip mates over dinner. It’s gonna be an awesome 12 days!

    It was a broad overview of Japan, it worked well to make me want more and the guide was amazing.

    I can't tell you how amazing Jeff was!
