Our “Grand Tours” are perfect for someone who is looking for a well-rounded introduction to Japan. We offer something for everyone on these tours.
Best of Japan Independent Package (14 Days/13 Nights)
More than any other country, the Japanese have managed to integrate ancient traditions and bleeding-edge technology harmoniously into their daily lives. With the perfect mix of new and old, and our most popular itinerary, this well-rounded tour has something for everyone.
Central Japan Independent Package (11 Days/10 Nights)
Between the imperial city of Kyoto, and the shogun’s city of Tokyo, lies Central Japan. This area of Japan epitomizes the extremes and contradictions of Japan today. The densely populated coastal belt city of Tokyo is a stark contrast with the beautiful natural scenery of the mountainous central area. Though readily accessible, central Japan is still remote enough to have retained traditional lifestyles and architecture.
These tours are perfect for the visitor looking for the quieter, less-traveled side of Japan, or for the person who wants to concentrate on a specific area of Japan.
Best of Japan Alps Independent Package (15 Days/14 Nights)
Soaring mountain peaks, open-air hot springs, lush forests, quaint mountain villages and a slow pace make this central alpine area a great escape. Hidden away in its rural and remote valleys are many of Japan’s best-preserved post towns, farm hamlets, and traces of the old urban culture. Combined with its beautiful natural scenery, these features make this area one of the most rewarding in Japan to visit.
Hokkaido Independent Package (12 Days/11 Nights)
The northernmost of the main islands, Hokkaido is Japan’s last frontier, kept at bay by wild mountains, virgin forests, sapphire lakes and surf-beaten shores. The attitudes of the inhabitants are akin to those of the pioneers of the American West, but still unmistakably Japanese.
These tours are designed for those who wish to concentrate on Tokyo and Kyoto.
Tokkaido Highway Independent Package (7 Days/6 Nights)
The Tokkaido Highway, built by the Tokugawa Shoguns in the early 17th century, connected the new military capital of Tokyo with the imperial, cultural capital of Kyoto. Follow in the steps of the Daimyo (feudal lords) and Samurai as you visit the two greatest cities of Japan.
