On this 12-day group tour, you’ll start in Osaka – where any food cravings you have will be quickly satisfied in the Kuromon Market and the Dotonbori strip. Experience Japan’s high-speed rail network, as you’re whisked from one city to the next by bullet train. From Osaka, you travel to Hiroshima, on to Kyoto, then finally, Tokyo. As well as the neon lights of Japan’s cities, you’ll stop off at rural host springs along the way, as well as alpine sake distilleries and the chance to see Mount Fuji in all its glory.
