Delve Deep: Intro to Japan

Up to off this trip

Trip Overview

(Previously called: Japan Express)

TRIP VIBE = iconic sights and in-depth adventures with a local Trip Leader.

Remember when you spent that INCREDible week soaking up all the sushi, sake, soba and shrines Japan could throw at you? Huh, that wasn't you. Then what are you waiting for?! This intro to Japan is all about the weird-and-wonderful in Tokyo, the ancient wonders of Kyoto, and the foodie delights of Osaka. Swipe right for a week's worth of mind-blowing Japanese culture. You won't regret it.

Worth noting…

On this trip you'll be travelling like a local. Meaning? Pack light! You'll need to make sure your luggage is no bigger than 160 cm in total (height x width x length) for travel on the Shinkansen (aka bullet train).
