About the tour
Travel through the 'Land of the Rising Sun' by futuristic bullet train. Sample Japanese whiskey, soak up the spectacular sight of Mount Fuji, experience an authentic tea ceremony and explore the bustling cities of Tokyo and Hiroshima on an all-encompassing route through Japan's highlights.
We meet at London Heathrow and fly to Sapporo, travelling via Hong Kong and arriving on Day 2.
After settling into the JR Tower Nikko Sapporo, we enjoy dinner tonight. Sapporo is famed for its 19th-century architecture and pretty public spaces, which we explore on Day 3's guided tour. We discover Otaru, Sapporo's romantic port, and the Otaru Music Box Museum before heading to the Nikka Whisky Distillery. Founded in 1934, Nikka's malts blend high-quality Japanese whisky with traditional Scottish techniques, which we sample before returning to Sapporo.
