Echoes of Edo: Japan Small Group Tour

Visit operator website

Run by: Selective Asia

Reference number: Echoes of Edo

From: £4665.00

A trip to Japan wouldn’t be complete without visiting the neon-lit streets of Tokyo and the cultural capital of Kyoto, which hold appeal to both the first time and frequent visitor to the country.

However, our Echoes of Edo small group tour also ventures into the lesser-visited region of Kumano Kodo, where a UNESCO World Heritage network of ancient trails has attracted pilgrims over thousands of years. There is also time spent visiting the beautiful gardens of Kanazawa, the foodie capital of Osaka and the vibrant city of Hiroshima. In true Selective Asia style, authentic local encounters and culinary focused experiences galore are included along the way.
