Luxury holidays in Japan

Destinations in Japan

  • Overlooking the tranquil waters of Ago Bay (known as the Bay of Pearls), Ise-Shima National Park on Japan’s south-west coast is famed for its natural beauty, ancient onsens (hot springs) and sacred sites.
  • One of Japan’s most beautiful gardens; famous geisha districts; historic houses and dazzling museums: Kanazawa captivates.
  • Kyoto’s mood depends on the season you arrive in: its first blush is in spring when sakura (cherry blossoms) carpet its hills; summer is vividly green; and in autumn scarlet and amber maple leaves set the landscape aflame.
  • Japan’s peak-framed prefecture Nagano is known for its winter sports scene, but with historic resort towns set amid soaring mountains, cedar-scented forests and steaming hot springs, this is an all-seasons stunner.
  • Powder-seekers sweep into resort town Niseko like the waves of fresh flakes carpeting its slopes (around 49 feet of snow a year). But, Hokkaido’s coolest hangout, set by dormant volcano Mount Yotei, keeps Japanese custom and celebrates tradition.
  • A walk down any Tokyo street could lead you to a hushed shrine, a thumping nightclub or a store stocking the latest technological advances – it's almost like Tokyo is two separate cities.
