Discover Japan on a 2 week cross-country train journey
A trip through Japan is featured on many bucket-lists and it’s easy to see why. The cherry blossom gardens, the sushi, the temples and castles, karaoke rooms and anime-themed everything make it feel like you’re stepping into a whole new world. TripHunters takes you and your +1 on an unforgettable bullet-speed train journey through the land of the rising sun. Highlights include a 3* Michelin dinner in the world’s highest ranked sushi restaurant in Tokyo, climbing to the top of the Mount Fuji, exploring the Matsumoto castle and a stay on the picture-perfect island of Miyajima. This jackpot trip includes both the go-to spots of Japan as the most magical hidden gems – you’re guaranteed to make memories that will last with you forever!
Travel in style with business-class return flights from an airport in your nearest city to the bustling city of Tokyo.
We’re talking luxury like no other, with 5* double/twin bed accommodation (or AirBnB if preferred) provided throughout your stay. Wake up to stunning views and start your day right with breakfast included every day of your trip. Accommodation options are subject to availability on your chosen dates, but include an array of luxurious retreats that embody world-renowned Japanese hospitality. You could find yourself having exclusive access to an entire floor – a 6-room ryokan - at Hoshinoya, Tokyo. In Kyoto, experience a modern take on “Machiya Style” in the beautifully-designed Hotel Kanra. Enjoy a refined sky-high stay with river views and breath-taking sights of the city at Conrad Osaka.
Japan has so much to offer, and we want you to experience it all! Whether you’re an adrenaline-junkie or a relaxation guru, there’s something for everyone on this trip. Explore the stunning Hakone National Park, where you can gaze upon Mount Fuji, adventure through Shiraito Falls or take the perfect selfie with Mount Fuji to prove you really DID go to Japan! Discover your inner-love for anime at J-World, or get animated by the fabulously cute Ghibli Museum. We could go on and on, but to give you an idea, we’re throwing in entry to Matsumoto Castle, Edo Tokyo Museum, Umeda Sky Building, A-bomb Dome Museum….you get the picture.
Many say the REAL way to get to know the locals is through karaoke – and that’s exactly what we intend to do! Enjoy 3-hour Karaoke room rental (incl. all-you-can-drink to make it a night to remember…or not!) in Big Echo. It’s also time to live out your wildest fantasies by taking part in real-life Mario Kart in Tokyo (you’ve seen the pics, we can’t WAIT to see yours)! No trip to Japan would be complete without learning how to make sushi, so of course you’ll be taking part in a sushi-making workshop to become a pro and impress your besties back home. If they’re not impressed, you’ll also be undergoing Ninja training….they’d better like your sushi..! Again we can go on and on, but you’ll be looking forwards to a cruise through Lake Ashi, a traditional tea ceremony in Kyoto, Kabuki Theatre and a variety of tours across Japan!
To ensure you can travel throughout this stunning country, we’re including an unlimited rail card valid in all of Japan for 14 days for you and your bestie. If that wasn’t enough, we’re also throwing in a whopping £1,000 taxi credit, so you can get seamlessly from sight to sight without a sweat. We all know Japanese cuisine is mouth-watering, so (subject to availability pending on chosen travel dates), we’re treating you to £300 meal vouchers and dinner at Sukiyabashi (Tokyo), Ichiran (Osaka) and Chihana (Kyoto).
