In Japan the way you travel is almost as iconic as the destinations you arrive at.
After experiencing the bright lights and ceaseless energy of Tokyo, a super-efficient express train or a world famous bullet train will zip you through countryside that looks like it has been painted by an 18th century master – to arrive at Takayama, an ancient city rich in heritage and history. Kanazawa offers ninja houses and temples. Hiroshima is the phoenix city, whilst Miyajima is an island of utter beauty. Kyoto will introduce you to geishas and tea ceremonies, before you return by bullet train for one last look at marvellous Tokyo.
