LIGHTNING fast journeys on a Shinkansen, numerous World Heritage listed sites, superb Japanese cuisine and so much more are available in a new collection of private deluxe tours in Japan from Asia holiday specialists Singapore Airlines Holidays.
There are six new private and independent packages, ranging from five to 11 nights in duration, which showcase the best this fascinating destination has to offer.
An example is the five night Kyoto and Hiroshima short stay break, two of the most popular cities in Japan. The tour begins in Kyoto and explores the UNESCO World Heritage listed Himeji Castle – which stands in its original form untouched by war, earthquakes or fire.
Experience the world famous Shinkansen (bullet train) to Hiroshima to gage an understanding of the events that occurred in this city seventy years ago and pay respect at the Peace Park and Museum. Enjoy a day trip to the famous Miyajima Island to view what could be the most photographed site in Japan, The Floating Tori Gate.
Then spend a final day at leisure in Osaka before the flight back to Australia. It is priced from $6,550 per person twin share and departs year round.
All private itineraries include return airfares with Singapore Airlines from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide (Perth available on request) including current airline fuel surcharge and taxes, deluxe hotel accommodation with daily breakfast, all touring, entrance fees and transportation within Japan with local guides.
