Day 1: Arrive in Tokyo
Arrive in the dynamic capital of an ancient land, Tokyo, a city that now blends neon-drenched modernity with traditional temples, shrines and gardens. You can arrive at the joining-point hotel at any time as there are no planned activities aside from a group meeting on the evening of day 1, followed by dinner. Your leader will leave a note for you at reception informing you of what time and where this important meeting will take place.

Days 2 & 3: Tokyo – Nikko
This morning, stroll the outer grounds of the Imperial Palace and the famous shopping district of Ginza, before an afternoon’s journey by express and local train to Nikko. Next day’s exploration of this sacred site since the middle of the 8th Century includes a visit to the Toshu-gu Shrine.

Days 4 & 5: Hakone
In the hot spring region of Hakone, take a boat across Lake Ashinoko followed by a picturesque cable car journey over the surrounding mountains, and possibly a glimpse of elusive Mount Fuji, looming in the distance. For those that are keen, there is the opportunity to bathe in the outdoor onsens (hot spring baths), with separate springs for men and women.

Days 6 & 7: Takayama
Travel to Takayama by the world-famous Shinkansen bullet train, reaching speeds of up to 270km/h. The speedy journey takes approximately four hours. Takayama is well-known for its traditional inns, sake breweries and the outdoor museum of the Hida Folk Village, which you’ll visit as well as enjoying an early morning market excursion.

Days 8 – 10: Hiroshima
Take the 5-hour train to Hiroshima, a bustling metropolis with a tragic past. Optional sightseeing (at your own expense) could include the ruins of the A-Bomb Done building, one of the 11 structures left partially standing after the nuclear blast in 1945, and the Peace Park with its monuments and museum dedicated to international peace. Perhaps spend an afternoon at the nearby island of Miyajima and view the famous ‘floating’ Torii Gate and the grand Itsukushima-jinja Shrine.

Days 11 – 14: Kyoto
Leaving Hiroshima, travel one hour to the fascinating 5-storey Himeji-jo Castle, and then a further hour to Kyoto. This ancient city boasts over 2,000 temples, shrines and gardens. Be sure not to miss the extravagant gold-plated Kinkaku-ji Temple, optional Tea Ceremony, or some of the city’s lively nightlife. Check out of your hotel on the morning of day 14, and make your own way to the airport.

3 nights’ accommodation in guesthouses, 9 nights in Ryokans (traditional inns) & 1 night in a western-style hotel Meals as specified: 2 breakfasts & 2 dinners
