While Tokyo is the greatest city in the world (in our humble, totally unbiased opinion), there is lots to explore within easy reach of Japan’s capital.
For those who want to base themselves in and around Tokyo, historic towns like Kamakura or Kawagoe; World Heritage Sites like Nikko and Mount Fuji; or Yokohama, the second-largest city in Japan. All provide incredible architecture and diverse experiences to help place your Tokyo time in context. We can travel by train or your own private vehicle.
Then there are the off-the-beaten-track day trips: Fancy two sake breweries and a trip back in time to a suburban retro town? Want to pick grapes in the foothills of Mount Fuji? Organic eating in a unique farmstay in Chiba up your street? Craft Beer Breweries and Whisky Distilleries more your thing? Untouristed fireworks displays in beautiful onsen towns sound lovely? Let us know your interests and we can plan your perfect, personalised time beyond Tokyo.
Thanks to Japan’s incredible trains, even cities 500km from Tokyo can be experienced on a day trip. Visit Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital; Osaka, the country’s kitchen; Nagoya, the under-appreciated heart of Chubu and more!
