Japan is a land of innovation and ancient tradition, where Shinto shrines compete against the glittering towers of the modern age. On this comprehensive tour we see ancient gardens, sacred shrines and awe inspiring landscapes, and discover the cultural heritage of Japan on this exciting journey between Tokyo and Osaka. Visit the famous Kenroku-en garden and the traditional ochaya (tea) houses of Kanazawa, before exploring the imperial city of Kyoto with its many temples and shrines. Experience the sombre modern history of Hiroshima, then visit the picturesque island of Miyajima and the Torii gate, before ending the tour in the city of Osaka.
