Japan Vacations

Japan vacations explore an island moderate in size but large in history, culture and natural beauty. On escorted tours, an experienced guide points out the sights and leads groups on visits to featured destinations. We also offer independent Japan tours if you like to travel at your own pace.

Trips highlight many attractive destinations. Most include a stay in Tokyo, a major modern city bustling with activity. The famous Ginza area, a popular place to spend free time, is brimming with neon signs, department stores and restaurants. Not far from Tokyo is majestic Mount Fuji, a scenic option that provides a pleasant contrast to the big-city Tokyo experience.

Japan tours also might visit Matsumoto Castle and the nearby Japan Folklore Museum. On some itineraries, you'll drive through the Japanese Alps and visit secluded towns hidden among the peaks. History enthusiasts will appreciate the World War II memorials of Hiroshima, an included stop on several trips.

Throughout your travels in Japan, you'll see centuries-old historic shrines and castles. Frequently, tours will stop in small, quaint villages where local artisans are busy at work making baskets, carving wood or dying silk. You might witness a geisha performance or enjoy a glass of sake at a local bar or restaurant. Wherever our Japan vacations may take you, the country's culture comes alive with every experience.
