Tours made for you
Enjoy sci-fi cityscapes, tranquil green tea plantations and placid, eternal lakes in Japan
Japan is a land where the future meets the past. You’ll find ancient customs and craftsmanship woven together with cutting-edge modern technology and futuristic fashions in this 6,800-island volcanic archipelago.
The dazzling capital of Tokyo is often people’s first introduction to Japan and to say it is an assault on the senses is an understatement. This is a city that moves at an astonishing rate but take the time to step back and you’ll discover that just like any big city around the world, there is a more sedate side waiting to be explored. Other cities, such as Kyoto and Kanazawa, while by no means small, have an altogether more relaxed feel thanks to their beautiful castles, pagodas and quaint wooden buildings. In Kyoto it’s not uncommon to see kimono-clad geisha shuffling along the narrow streets, a reminder this is a country where traditions are still embedded in everyday life.
A patchwork of bamboo forests, sparkling lakes and hot springs, Japan’s beautiful countryside provides the perfect antidote to its frenetic cities. Here it’s all about taking the time to appreciate the natural environment and really tuning into yourself.
And then of course there’s the food. Without a doubt one of the highlights of any trip Japan, every meal offers something special. From fresher-than-fresh sushi to steaming bowls of ramen and crunchy tempura, there is so much to look forward to.
Let Jacada help you to discover this diverse region with a seamless and personalised itinerary. Take a look at our example itineraries for inspiration, and then speak to our Japan Travel Designers to start planning your own tailor-made trip.

Travel to Japan just for the food. The emphasis on excellent, farm-to-table fare is second only to Italy, but with very different flavours. When you’re there you’ll be blown away by the striking countryside, the bright and manic cities, the depth of their customs and traditions and the serenity of the temples and gardens. It’s an intriguing and unique country of contrasts and one that everyone should visit during their life.
