Head to the land of the rising sun

Ultra-modern technology, refined cuisine and century-old customs have all contributed to the allure of the Japanese culture.

Our Japan tours include transfers, porterage, tipping and gratuities, hotel stays and a wide range of exceptional cultural experiences that are all included in your journey. For most of your travels, you will traverse the country on Japan’s state-of-the-art railway system, with included trips on the world-renowned Shinkansen bullet train.

You will also enjoy transfers in comfortable coaches, have the opportunity to unwind on a cruise in Tokyo Bay and witness breathtaking mountain views from cable cars.

And when the day is over you can look forward to returning to some of Japan’s finest hotels, including the Conrad Tokyo and the Hyatt Regency in Kyoto.

As you explore the local way of life with us, you will enter the soaring cities and exquisite rural farms, view the picturesque mountains and tranquil seas and encounter many of the famous monuments that have made Japan one of the most desirable tourist destinations.

Cultural experiences

We include a range of unique Scenic Enrich experiences and Scenic Freechoice activities on our Japan tours that allow you to immerse yourself in the culture and personally encounter the local way of life.

Scenic Freechoice

Scenic Freechoice is a program of activities that allows you to pick and choose between excursions and dining options, enabling you to prioritise those aspects of Japan that interest you most.

Would you like to learn calligraphy or origami, visit Osaka Castle or would you prefer to cycle through Kyoto?

Would you like to visit the Imperial Meiji Shinto Shrine, or is a Japanese shopping expedition more your style? With Scenic Freechoice, it’s up to you entirely.


Scenic Enrich

Scenic Enrich is a series of organised events arranged exclusively for Scenic guests. You can look forward to exquisite experiences not available to most travellers.

Have dinner with a maiko – an apprentice geisha. Learn how to prepare sushi with the help of a Japanese chef.

Experiences like these reveal aspects of Japan that you wouldn’t otherwise get to discover. Enjoy.


Scenic Sundowners

Scenic Sundowners are bespoke cocktail events arranged for the exclusive pleasure of our guests. They’re a great way to toast the end to a day of discovery and exploration.

You can expect an experience quite out of the ordinary on our luxury Japan tours.

Take in the bright lights of Tokyo during your evening dinner cruise on a yakatabune, an old fashioned houseboat, on Tokyo Bay.
