Japan

Discover the lesser-travelled parts of the "Land of the Rising Sun" View All Japan Holidays

Japan is a land of contrasts, where the ancient and intricate live side-by-side with the cutting edge of today’s technology. From ultra modern cities boasting bustling, neon-lit streets to serene temples set amidst tree-lined parkland, Japan quietly boasts an allure and a draw for every kind of traveller.

Most Japan holidays begin in the iconic capital city, Tokyo, before travelling deeper into the country. Here visitors can stroll city streets thronged with people, be enthralled by a Geisha performance in historic Kyoto, spend a night on a futon in a local ryokan before ending the day with a dip in a traditional onsen or bathhouse and board futuristic Shinkansen bullet trains to explore far flung corners of the country – all in just one holiday.

Introduced by Regent in 2018, we’re delighted to begin providing tailor-made holidays and group travel to Japan as our newest Far East destination. In true Regent style, though our group tours include many of the major tourist highlights, they also venture off the popular trails in a bid to show off some of Japan’s lesser-seen – and all the more interesting – rural and cultural sides. On our tours, join a group and try your hand at carving your own chopsticks or kayak through a serene gorge in the Kiso valley.

There's so much to Japan that although the cherry blossom season is a firm favourite with travellers, trips outside of the spring flowering time remain incredibly rewarding and a fantastic experience. Tokyo is incredible, but I suggest only spending a few days here as you arrive or at the end of your trip, and making a beeline over to the other bustling cities and out into the beautiful countryside to get a deeper understanding of authentic Japan.

Stefanie's Tips
1
To explore far flung corners of the country, there's no better way to travel than aboard a futuristic Shinkansen bullet train.
2
One of the best places to experience an enthralling Geisha performance is Kyoto.
3
If you're not bothered about the cherry blossoms, travellers find visiting the country much cheaper outside of springtime.
