Our Japan tours represent an amazing way to see "the land of the rising sun". The group trip through Japan is a journey full of variety and contrasts, from contemporary metropolises to ancient shrines and overwhelming nature. Tradition and modern technology seemingly fit together perfectly. Tokyo is full of these contradictions. Here you will find the village district of Nezu next to the skyscrapers of Shinjuku and the trendy Harajuku, where youngsters dressed as rebels make for an altogether very unusual street scene!
Travel to Japan and spend time visiting Tokyo, then you will notice that the city consists mainly of modern buildings. A major earthquake in 1923 and bombing during World War II has left Tokyo with few old buildings. Fortunately, the Japanese character has certainly not been lost. Naturally you do not go to Japan just for the capital city alone. Travelling through Japan provides many other fascinating places.
During your Japan travels you visit Kyoto and will find classic highlights such as the Golden Temple and Ryoan-ji. The Golden Temple is one of the most beautiful temples of Kyoto. This wonderful temple complex almost made it on to the new list of world wonders, but alas, just missed out. The Ryoan-ji temple is known for its Zen garden. This Japanese stone garden is laid out to give the monks a place to meditate. Being in the garden has a calming effect. For a livelier atmosphere visit Gion, the entertainment district of Kyoto. Here you will meet giggling apprentice geishas in their typical kimonos and painted white faces.
Travel in Japan means admiring the many rice fields, rivers and interesting shrines. The Kibi Plain lets you see all these elements in a very beautiful area. It will be an unforgettable experience! In Sandankyo the nature is stunningly beautiful. Impressive rock formations and towering rock walls make for a lovely sight during a wonderful hike.
The group trip to Japan introduces you to the versatile Japanese culture consisting of European, North American and Asian elements.
