Sometimes, a holiday should just be a holiday: a chance to relinquish all responsibilities, make no decisions, and worry about absolutely nothing. On All-In Japan, you'll do just this. Leaving every aspect of your trip to us, from your lunch to your luggage, you'll be free to concentrate on immersing yourself in Japanese culture - safe in the knowledge that you don't have a penny to pay on the ground.
This tour is an exhilarating journey through Japan's history and traditions, from the refined geisha houses of Kyoto to Tokyo's exuberant taiko drumming workshops. Tour the ancient temples of Kyoto and Nara, visit the biggest original castle in Japan at Himeji, and experience zazen meditation at a beautiful temple deep in Fukui Prefecture.
Try your hand at confectionery-making in Kanazawa, visit the fascinating Peace Memorial Park and Museum at Hiroshima, and ride the cable car to the top of Mount Misen for spectacular views over the Seto Inland Sea. Forget the tour bus bubble - we'll take you to meet the artisans, restaurateurs and small business owners who make all this possible. It's not all temples and tradition, however, and we'll make sure you're well-acquainted with modern Japan - from an architecture tour of Tokyo to Kanazawa's outstanding 21st Century Art Museum.
One of the great features of this tour is the wide range of excellent evening entertainment, and you'll try a huge range of cuisines in all sorts of settings - including do-it-yourself okonomiyaki pancakes, multi-course kaiseki meals, plus an
evening dinner with a dance performance from a trainee geisha.
All-In Japan is all about comfort and peace of mind, but don't let that fool you - this is all-inclusive as you've never seen it before: full-on, fast-paced, and packed full of action.
The tour leader will be staying at the first hotel for two nights before the tour starts so they will be available for advice if you choose to book pre-tour nights. We recommend booking at least one extra night to check in and relax before the tour begins. We can also book a night or two at the end of the trip if you want to extend your stay in Japan even more.
