Japan 360°: discovering Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Osaka

The trip in a nutshell

On a trip to Japan there are certain stops that cannot be missed and, spoiler, in this itinerary we have them all. The first is, of course, Tokyo, the ultra-modern capital that reflects the frenzy and effervescence of the country; Kyoto, with its temples and historic districts; Hiroshima, reborn after World War II; Osaka, home of Japanese cuisine.

It will be a journey between tradition and modernity: in Tokyo, we will be surrounded by skyscrapers and cross the world’s busiest crossroads, but it will be enough to travel to Kamakura to be immersed in the peace of Buddhist temples and Zen gardens, not too far from the iconic Mount Fuji. Then we’ll take the Shinkansen, the high-speed train with a reputation for never being late, to Kyoto, where we’ll visit more majestic temples, walk through the bamboo forest and cross the red bulls of Fushimi Inari. A leap back in time in Hiroshima, another in Osaka and Himeji Castle, and then we stop in Nara to cuddle the famous deer walking in the city park. We will immerse ourselves in a culture far removed from our own, whose timeless charm attracts travellers from all over the world, who come to these lands to glean its innermost secrets. Will we succeed?

Travel mood

The itinerary is very intense and can therefore be tiring. There is a lot of travelling to be done, which is why a backpack and not a suitcase is compulsory. Five hotel changes are planned.
Physical effort

No excessive or particularly strenuous physical exertion is expected, however, during the days, you will cover many kilometres to reach and visit the various points of interest.
