Style: Culture & History
Japan Famous Sites and Culture 8 Day / 7 Night Holiday (Land Only)
Japan is a country of contrasts, just waiting to be discovered. Beautiful, ultra modern, historical, relaxing, busy, fashionable, traditional all describe Japan today. The ancient capital of Kyoto is rich in cultural sites while nearby Himeji Castle is a famous World Heritage Listed treasure. Hiroshima is a city of historical importance and next door lies Miyajima Island with its unique breath-taking scenery.
The modern metropolis of Tokyo is alive with energy and excitement. Japan’s small land area means travelling times are short and all areas are easily accessible by a clean and efficient rail system. This flexible itinerary makes it possible for the independent traveler to experience all of these cities. By adding some of our optional tours you will experience the famous sites and real cultural delights of Japan.
