Japan has lured untold numbers of adventurers since Marco Polo first introduced it to the world back in the 13th century. This is a land of cultural diversity reflecting its long, proud and sometimes violent history; colourful and inspiring natural attractions boasting many World Heritage Sites. The tour itinerary includes a comprehensive and varied range of sightseeing and events which will allow you to assimilate the diversity that makes up modern-day Japan.
Lying just a short distance across the Sea of Japan, Korea also entices visitors with its scenic beauty and unique cultural and historical heritage. Throughout this beautiful natural landscape, there are numerous ancient temples and shrines, but while they treasure the past, the country is now a thriving modern society.
We have planned our tour for Autumn when the leaves of the maple trees and ginkgo trees turn red and yellow in concert presenting you with beautiful scenery at every turn.
