Consider a holiday to the Land ofthe Rising Sun - Japan
Think of Japan and an image of the busy streets, lots of people and neon lights of Tokyo come to mind but this country, made up of nearly 7000 islands, has so much more to offer.
Japan is a great place with a mix of ultramodern and traditional attractions that will please everyone. From the neon lights, skyscrapers and shopping centres in Tokyo to the Temples, shrines, gardens and cherry blossoms in Kyoto.
Most people tend to visit late March to late April as this is when you will see the cherry blossoms at their best, and, although you can see them through out Japan, some of the best displays are in the parks in the city of Kyoto.
Like the UK, Japan has 4 seasons. The summers can have high temperatures and humidity and is also the rainy season. Autumn is a very popular time of year to visit as the temperatures are still warm and the cherry trees start to turn and the colours are incredible. If you are into your winter sports, north Japan is a fantastic ski and snowboarding destination in the winter.
Places of interest include Mount Fuji and Hakone where you can enjoy a relaxing Hot Spring & Spa treatment at a traditional Ryokan. Hiroshima - where you can visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park which commemorates the atomic bombing during WWII, other prominent sites include Shukkei-en, a formal Chinese-style garden, and Hiroshima castle.
A trip to Japan wouldn’t be complete without a journey on the iconic Bullet Train, the easiest way to travel from city to city. The train covers the length of the main island and can reach speeds of up to 200 mph.
Japan also has a diverse range of wildlife to be seen. From the snow monkeys bathing in the hot springs to black bears, giant salamanders, a variety of exotic birds and giant spider crabs.
So, whether you want to visit the vibrant cities or take in the history and culture of this amazing country we can create the perfect itinerary for you.

The Sigiriya Rock is an ancient palace located in the central Matale District near the town of Dambulla in the Central Province, Sri Lanka. The site was selected by King Kasyapa for his new capital. he built his palace on the top of the rock and decorated the sides with colourful frescoes. He also built about half way up on a small plateau a gateway in the form of an enormous lion. The rock was abandoned after the kings death, then used as a Buddhist Monastery until the 14th century. Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982, it is considered to be one of the oldest tourist attractions in the world. So if you're thinking of a trip to this fascinating country why not tailor make it to include a walk up the Sigiriya rock in the morning to avoid the sun, stop half way to admire the frescoes then finally explore the palace ruins at the top!!
