See and feel Japan over 16 immersive days as you journey from Fukuoka to Tokyo in signature Scenic luxury. The Land of the Rising Sun is fiercely proud of its rich cultural heritage, and you’ll experience the very best the country has to offer with inclusive Scenic Enrich and Freechoice highlights – from an authentic Geisha experience amid the charm of Kyoto’s Gion District, a guided stroll through the bustling fish markets of Tokyo, and a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, in which you’ll dress in an authentic kimono for the perfect photographic keepsake. This is your chance to experience the real Japan, and the many authentic highlights which make it one of the world’s best-loved destinations.

Fukuoka is the first stop on this immersive Japanese itinerary, and here you can visit the oldest Zen Temple in Japan, Shōfuku-ji, before enjoying inspiring, far-reaching views from the city’s famous tower. In Nagasaki, visit the poignant Peace Park during an exclusive Scenic Enrich experience, and learn more about the impact of the atomic bomb of WWII. Travel on to the fabled city of Kyoto, whose World Heritage-listed Gion District is the setting for an unforgettable Scenic Enrich dining experience, presented by an authentic Geisha. Travelling to Tokyo via the beautiful enclave of Nara, enjoy an exhilarating sightseeing tour of this bustling metropolis, before immersing in Japanese cuisine as you learn to prepare sushi. A Scenic Sundowners event on Tokyo Bay, glass of wine in hand, is the perfect end to your journey, and a timely opportunity to raise a glass to this incredible journey.
