Japan: Land of the Rising Sun

Intrepid 'original' guided tour
Selected departures

What to expect

With a history more colourful than the neon-soaked streets of Shinjuku in the heart of Tokyo, strap yourself in for an incredible experience. You'd be mistaken for thinking you were in Switzerland! Japan’s famous Shinkansen bullet trains run to Swiss precision, everything is impeccably clean and ordered, snow-capped mountains such as Mt Fuji are celebrated, and the Japanese craft chocolates as good, if not better than Swiss chocolatiers.
