13 Days - Tours for Solo Travellers

Looking to travel solo in Japan? Discover the unique beauty, culture and heritage of the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’ on our fascinating dedicated solo traveller holiday, which combines the highlights and hidden gems of this truly mesmerising destination.  Japan is a country steeped in the tradition of majestic emperors and ruthless martial arts, balanced with tranquil gardens and a Buddhist outlook on life. These treasured cultural traditions are complemented by the advanced technology, futuristic architecture and quirky gadgets that vie for your attention in Japan’s neon-lit cities. It’s a remarkably diverse country just waiting to be discovered, combined, of course, with the incredibly polite and respectful Japanese hospitality.  Our carefully crafted solo traveller itinerary covers three of Japan's key cities: the bustling capital of Tokyo, cultural Kyoto and Nara, Japan’s first capital, dating back to the eighth century. Journey past Mt. Fuji on an iconic bullet train, take in the tranquillity of Kyoto’s Zen gardens and temples, experience the poignant history of Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park and learn about Japan’s traditional past in Nara. What’s more, as this bucket list holiday in Japan is specially created for solo travellers, there are extra touches along the way. On day two, there will be a welcome dinner and drinks for you to get to know your like-minded travelling companions as you embark on a Japanese adventure. Immerse yourself in this incomparable culture of contrasts, where the bright lights of huge hi-tech cities live in harmony with ancient rituals, shrines and springs.
