Japan Tours

The Oriental Caravan's escorted tours of Japan are not only accompanied 
beginning to end by a Japanese-speaking tour leader from the UK but also allow sufficient freedom 
for individual exploration and getting a feel for the ‘real’ Japan. From the feedback we get 
most people find our Japan tours are the perfect way to experience this endlessly fascinating country.

Please choose from one of the three itineraries below...

The Land of the Rising Sun


This classic introductory tour of Japan is highly popular and perfect for those who want to see Japan’s most famous sights in Kyoto, Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Tokyo whilst also getting off the beaten track to explore the many wonders of Kyushu. Aside from the gardens, our favourite parts are the magical nights we spend exploring the island of Miyajima and joining in for some old time Japanese rock ‘n’ roll in the spa town of Beppu!

Lake Yunoko

The Narrow Road to the Deep North


This fascinating journey around Japan’s mysterious north follows the route taken by the haiku poet Matsuo Basho and is named after his famous travelogue of 1689. We stay in a variety of characterful local accommodation including ryokan and monastic, mountaintop shukubo. We witness horseback samurai archery at Nikko’s Toshogu festival and learn the secrets of the self-mummified monks of Tsuruoka. We cruise among Matsushima’s pine-clad islets and at Osore San we visit surely one of the eeriest travel destinations in the world!

Shikoku Pilgrims

In the Footsteps of Pilgrims

This charming tour is loosely themed on the life of Japan’s greatest monk, the remarkable Kobo Daishi and is about as off-the-beaten-track as you can get. We concentrate on exploring the sleepy island of Shikoku, one of the few places in the world that mass tourism has yet to find. We visit the mountain-top monasteries of Koya, bathe in the ancient hot springs of Dogo and explore the isolated valleys of Iya, Japan’s ‘Little Tibet’. Our old Japan hands love this trip. Join us to find out why!
