More Information

DAY 1 Tokyo, Japan

You’re in Tokyo, baby! Meet the group and dive into a full day city tour. Spot the Senso-ji Temple and wander along the nearby 500-year-old Nakamise shopping street selling mochi (sticky rice cakes) and geta (wooden shoes). There’s also Akihabara for the anime fans and the fashionable Shinjuku and Harajuku districts to explore. Don’t forget to walk the famous Shibuya crossing or see the Meiji Shrine while you’re at it. What. A. Day. Hungry? Thought so. Bond with your trip mates over dinner.


DAY 2 Tokyo to Mt Fuji, Hakone

Konichiwa Hakone! Swap the hustle and bustle of Tokyo for the natural beauty of Hakone. This place has beautiful views across Lake Ashinoko and amazing backdrops of the sacred Mount Fuji. It’s not hard to see why Mount Fuji is loved by the Japanese and all who visit it, inspiring countless poets and artists. Before the day is up, visit the Hakone Shrine and the famous red torii (gate) overlooking Lake Ashi. Wow.


DAY 3 Tokyo

Free day in Tokyo! Start ticking off the hot spots in this epic place. Hop across the unique patchwork of districts that make up Tokyo's cityscape and, for a taste of tradition, visit the Imperial Palace and its surrounding gardens. In the evening, wander the futuristic neon-lit streets or spend your night in Shinjuku - there are endless restaurants, bars, clubs and karaoke joints here. Wanna go out with the group? Take the option to visit the Robot Restaurant tonight. Yes, it's a thing.


DAY 4 Tokyo to Kyoto

This morning, pack your bags and get ready to travel at 300 km/h on the train before arriving in the futuristic station of Kyoto. Japan's traditional capital, Kyoto is home to over 2,000 temples and shrines, and we'll be paying a visit to the beautiful Fushimi Inari Shrine. Later, dress up as a maiko or a samurai (optional).


DAY 5 Kyoto

We’re off on a guided tour. Start off at the Kinkakuji Golden Pavilion and Ryoan-ji Temple. After lunch, travel to the Heian Shrine before ending with a quick visit to the Gion district. If you find you have spare time today, be sure to get out of town and visit the pretty Arashiyama bamboo forest to find your zen place (and your next Instagram post).


DAY 6 Kyoto to Osaka

Hop on the train to Osaka. We’ve got an intro tour to the city starting with the majestic Osaka Castle. Later, why not make your way to the top of the Umeda Sky Building to feel the wind in your hair and to get epic #views over the city? When the sun goes down, Osaka comes alive, and the city’s all yours after a farewell dinner. Let’s go!


DAY 7 Osaka

After breakfast it’s sayonara to the Land of the Rising Sun. Swap numbers and plan that next adventure together.
