Cherry Blossoms

Unique Local Experiences in Japan

Japan is simply stunning during the beautiful Cherry Blossom season and a perfect time to visit. You'll also get to travel beyond the sites on our tours of Japan and immerse yourself in the local way of life - try your hand at cooking Tempura and Chicken Teriyaki at a local cooking class, sip a cup of Japanese tea with a Geisha in Kyoto, take a dip in a traditional Japanese onsen or spend a night in a traditional Japanese inn - a Ryokan.

Join us in Japan on one of our four private tours. Given Japan's excellent transport system, getting around is fairly hassle free and easy to combine a wealth of cultural sights and experiences in one tour. Whether you’d like to shop in Tokyo, experience Osaka vibrant nightlight, meet geishas in Kyoto or soak in a hot spring in Kinosaki Onsen - our private tours take in most of the highlights of Japan. Alternatively, we'd be happy to create a tailormade holiday to Japan for your specific requirements.

Travel beyond the city lights

A high speed rail journey out of the city reveals another side of Japan, one that is often missed by those passing briefly through this fascinating country. Beyond the city lights spectacular scenery and otherworldly landscapes abound, be it the spectacular Japanese Alps, colourful coral reefs of Okinawa or the forested mountains of Kyoto.

With a bounty of regional specialities and world-class restaurants, food lovers will discover culinary paradise in Japan’s extraordinary cuisine. Whether you want to sample sushi – the country’s most famous dish, opt for a tasty bowl of udon soup paired with deep fried tempura or try raw horse – a local delicacy in Matsumoto, washed down with a healthy serving of sake, the choices are endless.

We have loved every minute of the tour. It was a surprising mixture of discovering Japan. The information provided by the tour operator was perfect. We know exactly what to do when and every ticket was already there. nice hotels and very knowledgable and flexible guides. We highly recommend this tour.”
