The two most prominent buildings of the Garan are the Kondo Hall and the huge Konpon Daito Pagoda. The Hall is a large wooden temple hall where major ceremonies are held.

Hugged by Mount Fuji and Lake Ashi, Hakone is a scenic town in the Japanese countryside. It is most famous for its red torii gate and Shinto shrine.

A modern city on Honshu Island, was largely destroyed by an atomic bomb during World War II. Today, Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park commemorates the 1945 event.

Spacious market with vendors selling street food, fresh produce & shellfish, plus souvenirs. An amazing place to spend splendid times in a peaceful area full of locals.

Kyoto is the cultural heart of Japan, brimming with Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, and dazzling gardens and palaces. It is the best city to experience Japan's cultural nuances.

A small island in Hiroshima Bay, it is known for its forests and ancient temples. Just offshore, the giant orange Great Torii Gate is partially submerged at high tide.

A Buddhist temple complex perched on Mount Koya, Koyasan is considered one of the most sacred sites in Japan. It is also a scenic retreat with its epic mountain views.

This sacred area is home to the mausoleum of Kobo Daishi, founder of Shingon Buddhism. The cemetery is an important center for Japanese culture and a photogenic spot.

The large port city of Osaka is one of the trendiest cosmopolitan urban centers in Japan. It is a traveler's hub with vibrant nightlife and top-notch international cuisine.

This museum is dedicated to documenting the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in World War II. The museum was established in August 1955 with the Peace Memorial Hall.

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial is the only building that remains intact at the explosion site of the atomic bomb. It pays homage to the victims with its half-demolished state.

The mountainous Takayama town is an idyllic place nestling Japan's age-old traditions and rural charm. Hida Folk Village is one of its highlight attractions.

Jeanette Sharples

We did the 10 day Japan trip in March 2024. I cannot fault a single thing with this trip. The itinerary, the accommodation and the transport was perfect. Our tour guide Pepijn was top-class. His knowledge of the history of everywhere we went brought it all to life, and his calm personality and willingness to help anyone in the group with whatever they needed was great. I would definitely love to do another tour with Pepijn! And another tour with Travel Talk!
