Leave the bright lights behind and embark on a journey through Japan’s past with a Japan cultural holiday. From Tokyo to Kyoto, you’ll be immersed in Japanese history and culture as you wander along ancient streets, visit World Heritage Sites, walk in the footsteps of samurai and learn about the country’s utterly fascinating culture. Japan is a country steeped in tradition, and this can be seen everywhere you look. From the colourful kimonos worn by locals to the elaborately decorated tea houses and temples, every aspect of Japanese life is infused with significance. For a breath of fresh air while in Kyoto,
take a stroll through the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. This beautiful forest is home to hundreds of towering bamboo stalks and provides an idyllic setting for a leisurely walk away from the crowds. Nara's ancient city, home to three World Heritage Sites and the unearthed remains of the Great Imperial Palace, provides a vivid picture of life in the Japanese capital during an important period of political, cultural and religious change. Learn the intricate rules of a traditional tea ceremony, how to tie a kimono perfectly and the art of assembling bento box lunches. And would your Japan cultural holiday be complete without watching sumo wrestlers compete in the ancient sport?

Our feedback in the initial phone call was clearly taken on board by Frances to create a great itinerary for us. All of the hotels were clean, comfortable and with wonderful staff. We really loved our three nights in Tenyu and wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you so much for recommending Hakone, it was just the downtime we needed. We really enjoyed our time there. Audrey and the rest of the in-country concierge team were very helpful getting into restaurants etc.
