Discover feudal castles, the customs of the geisha and samurai, the WWII tragedy of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the modern rebirth into a land of astonishing technology. A Japan holiday with Trafalgar takes you from the neon skyscrapers of Tokyo to the historic Ameyoko Street Market, and from the high-speed bullet train to the ancient Buddhist temples of Kyoto. Meet a Tea Master and discover the art of the Japanese tea ceremony, and enjoy a kaiseki dinner in a traditional ryokan in the mountains.
