Discover our Japan tours

From the ultramodern cityscape of Tokyo to the ancient temples of Kyoto, our small group tours to Japan will take you on an all-encompassing trip of discovery. Our expert tour leaders will show you the cultural highlights as well as some lesser-known hidden treasures. 

Get into the heart of Japanese culture with a stay in a Buddhist temple and family-run ryokan, observe snow monkey bathing in the hot springs of Jigokudani Onsen and whizz across the countryside on a bullet train to explore the city of Hiroshima. Or, for a Japan tour with a difference, go exploring on two wheels with our Japan cycling trips. Discover the coast of the Noto Peninsula, feel the salty breeze rush past as you pedal along Chirihama Beach and stay in traditional Japanese accommodation with futon mattresses and tatami-mat floors. 

Considering a trip to Japan but new to Explore? We've answered some of the most-asked questions about our small group tours.
