MORE INFORMATION ABOUT JAPAN
The letters from A&K travellers returning from Japan make it as clear as a Mount Fuji stream: Japan seduces and confuses - often at the same time. Along with serene landscapes and the intoxicating juxtaposition of ancient traditions and modern technology, it's the country's trump card. We've heard stories of following onsen etiquette - yes, you really do wear a towel on your head - accidentally dipping food in sake, thinking it was sauce, and eating in a fashionable Tokyo café, only to later discover it was someone's private house. If the best holidays start with stepping outside daily life, then Japan delivers. In every possible way.
Without slicing a slither of excitement off this unique adventure, our highly qualified team in Japan will help you decipher and understand an exotic, mesmerising, often alien culture. A&K has been taking travellers to Japan for three decades, and has highly knowledgeable guides fluent in English.

We loved the itinerary, we loved the service levels, we loved the guides and above all we loved the experience of this unique culture with its overwhelming ‘otherness’, its politesse, its perfection its precision, its history, its gardens, its architecture and its charm. So, well done
