Immersive Excursions To Japan

Published by Global Traveler | By Debra Bokur

Offering luxury bespoke walking and cycling expeditions to nearly every corner of the world since 1966, Butterfield & Robinson knows how to get you from point A to point Z in active style

The company’s collection of journeys to Japan includes a seven-night Japan Biking tour (guided or private); an eight-night Japan Walking Private tour; and a nine-night Japan Family Private tour. Featured hotels include the Kayotei Ryokan in Yamanaka, the Mandarin Oriental in Tokyo and the Hyatt Regency in Kyoto.

During the Japan Bespoke expedition, experiences are customized to your exact dream specifications. A personal trip designer helps you choose from sites and activities that include exploring Buddhist shrines, soaking in traditional hot spring onsen baths, visits to kimono makers and bonsai tenders, and stays in ryokan guest houses. Contrast modern and ancient Japan while traveling on a bullet train to Kyoto for a traditional tea ceremony, then spend the evening dining on fabulous cuisine and enjoying the entertainment of geishas. Guided tours of Kyoto, a cable car journey over the steaming springs at Hakone, origami lessons, samurai lessons and sushi classes are all options that can be incorporated into your trip.
