Tour description provided by Intrepid

Grab the family and embark of an intriguing exploration of Japan. From ancient emperors to technological gizmos, Japan is a flurry of contradiction and excitement. Partake in a calligraphy lesson, hold a tune at a karaoke bar, swim in hot springs, visit a volcanic valley and explore the old temples of an imperial family. Allow Intrepid to take care of the finer details while you and your family enjoy a world of sushi, geishas, high-speed trains and sumo wrestling, alongside a local expert.


Days 1-4 Tokyo
Tokyo is a dynamic, modern hub, the thriving capital of an ancient land. Contradictions are everywhere, as hi-tech gadgetry and neon lights play an integral part in the lives of a population steeped in tradition.
Days 5-6 Hakone
The picturesque lakeside region of Hakone is a wonderland of stunning mountain panoramas and relaxing outdoor onsen (hot spring baths).
Days 7-11 Kyoto
Magnificent temples, stunning gardens and gorgeous geishas abound in Kyoto, the ancient heart of Japan's unique culture.
