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. Phew! What. A. Day. Hungry? Thought so. Bond with your trip mates over dinner. It’s gonna be an awesome 12 days!

DAY 2 Tokyo

Today is a free day in Tokyo. Stuck for ideas? Hop across the unique patchwork of districts that makes 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.

DAY 3 Tokyo

Today, why not take a visit to the happiest place on earth: Tokyo Disneyland (optional). Be sure to leave space in your suitcase for all of the Disney merchandise! Wanna go out with the group later? Take the option to visit the Robot Restaurant. Yes, it’s a thing.

DAY 4 Tokyo to Takayama

This morning pack your bags ‘cos we’re travelling on the bullet train to the beautiful Japanese Alps. You’ll visit the Hida folk village when you get there. Why not finish off the day with an optional foodie activity? There’s Hida beef on the menu if you want it.

DAY 5 Takayama  

Start off the day at the morning riverside markets. Then, get your walking shoes on ‘cos we’ll be ticking off Takayama Jin'ya (a former government outpost) and visiting a sake brewery to try some of the famous Japanese rice wine. Tonight, be sure to check out the local onsen where you can relax in the hot springs. Aaaaand relax...

DAY 6 Takayama to Hiroshima via Miyajima

Jump on a ferry to Miyajima to see the island’s wild deer - cute! You can also check out the Itsukushima Shrine. A sunset at this spot is just the ticket to round off the day, so keep your phones charged for some pretty snaps.

DAY 7 Hiroshima to Osaka

Before leaving Hiroshima, visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum where you can learn about the atomic bombing during World War II. Later, we’re headed to Osaka. You’ll get the chance to experience traditional, vegetarian Buddhist cuisine at our accommodation tonight. Yum!

DAY 8 Osaka to Kyoto

We’re making tracks to Japan’s traditional capital, Kyoto. Kyoto is home to over 2,000 temples and shrines, and today you’ll pay a visit to the beautiful Fushimi Inari Shrine.

DAY 9 Kyoto

Start off with a guided tour of Kyoto. Tick off the Kinkakuji Golden Pavilion before moving on to the sprawling Arashiyama bamboo forest and the Togetsu-kyo bridge to find your zen place (and your next Instagram post). Fancy yourself a foodie? You’re in luck, as we’ll pop by the Nishiki Market next. In the afternoon, it’s off to Nijo Castle and the Heian Shrine before finishing up with a quick visit to the Gion district. What a day!

DAY 10 Kyoto

A free day to explore, whoo! You could always go on a day trip to Nara for more cute deer, beautiful nature and majestic temples. Later, you can dress up as a maiko or samurai (optional). Want more? Kyoto’s got a big student population, so why not get amongst the fun when day turns to night at a local bar?

DAY 11 Kyoto

Final day to pack in all that Kyoto has to offer. Quick, tick off the rest of the stuff on your Kyoto bucket list! Tonight, there’s a group dinner to round off the trip. We won’t blame you for getting emotional...

DAY 12 Kyoto

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