The brilliant lights of Tokyo, culture of Kyoto, art of Naoshima and beauty of Izu Kogen.
The best way to explore Japan is on the excellent public transport system and ultra-fast trains, with a guide on hand in the cities to give you specialist insight into the unexpected nuances and history of Japan’s sophisticated culture. You’ll use your Manaca Card to zip round Tokyo, for example, visiting temples and shrines, shopping malls and ancient streets - absorbing the sights as you go.
You’ll take bullet trains and stay in an art project on Naoshima Island, absorb the spiritual richness of Kyoto, visit a dormant volcano and sleep in a ryokan in Izu Kogen. Then take boat trips and bathe in private hot springs.
