Japan Express

Up to off this trip

Trip Overview

Japan blends a mix of the traditional and the ultra-modern in Tokyo, temples and geishas in Kyoto, and culinary delights in Osaka. Robot bars, too-big-for-the-bowl udon, and a visit to Hakone with a view of Mt Fuji will introduce you to The Land of the Rising Sun.

Worth noting…

On this trip you'll be travelling like a local... by train! This means a bit of walking between stations and hotels so we recommend packing light with a backpack or small case


Trip Itinerary

  1. Tokyo, Japan


    You’re in Tokyo, baby! Meet the group and dive into a full day city tour. Spot the Senso-ji Temple and wander along the nearby 500-year-old Nakamise shopping street selling mochi (sticky rice cakes) and geta (wooden shoes). There’s also Akihabara for the anime fans and the fashionable Shinjuku and Harajuku districts to explore. Don’t forget to walk the famous Shibuya crossing or see the Meiji Shrine while you’re at it. What. A. Day. Hungry? Thought so. Bond with your trip mates over dinner.

    good, wish more time was spent in Osaka rather than Kyoto though

    Great tour guide, was slightly disapointed with the group dinner at the end as it seemed a bit rushed. But other than that enjoyed the group and all the activities and sights I got to experience.

    I probably will not travel with Topdeck again because I found that it was not really an informational tour. They basically dropped us off at the spot and told us a meeting time. I thought there could have been more. Also the restaurants they chose as included meals were too cheap and not worth the money. I would have preferred to have them actually put more effort in quality food choices that reflected the culture.
