Japan

Japan is an island nation, located in the Pacific Ocean, lying to the east of the Sea of Japan. A place of contrasts, this is where high-tech meets natural spectacle, and where weird meets wonderful. Whether its the skyscrapers of Tokyo which have you lost in translation, or Niseko's spellbinding white snow, Japan has it all.

There is nowhere quite like Japan; a country made of up for four separate islands that on one hand will enthral you with their high-tech wizardry and razzmatazz, buzzing energy and bright lights, yet on the other hand completely capture you with its culture, age-old traditions and elegant sophistication.

At Scott Dunn, we are specialists at bringing every aspect of Japan to life for our guests, whether it is the vibrancy of fast-moving Tokyo, exploring Mt Fuji and Hakone National Park or hiking the Nakasendo Way. We will let you experience all of this and more, from the tranquil onsens to the power of Taiko drumming. Try your hand at a tea ceremony or sample some sake, we know just the places, and you can be sure to enjoy some incredible cuisine. Let us take you beyond the hordes and show you the real Japan. Using the very best luxury hotels and traditional Japanese ryokans, your night's rest will be something to look forward to, and by day we will provide you with the best private guides to lead you through centuries of history and culture. Japan can be a daunting place to travel to, but we will make sure all the travel flows seamlessly, letting you sit back and take it all in on a fantastic luxury vacation to the Land of the Rising Sun.
