This 9-day trip follows the ‘Golden Route’ for those who are short on time, but still want to hit up the key sights in Japan. Begin in the bustling metropolis of Tokyo, stop in the hot-spring resort town of Hakone, experience a traditional ryokan inn for the night, and finish with time in ancient Kyoto. This compact itinerary is the perfect whistle-stop journey through Japan, without compromising on content.
Take full advantage of the excellent railways on this holiday as you use bullet trains to swiftly cover vast distances of the country. We can recommend some alternative options to Hakone if you would like to divert from the ‘typical’ route between the two major cities – let us know your interests and we can find something that suits your budget and timescale perfectly.
