Japan Adventure Holiday Destinations

Discover the real Japan on the adventure of a lifetime with adventure travel specialists and multi award-winning tour operator in Japan. Japan, also known as the “Land of the Rising Sun,” is a country where the past meets the future. The culture of this country stretches back centuries yet it also leads the way in modern fashions and crazy fads. Travelling on the Shinkansen or bullet train our Japan adventure tours will take you on a high speed journey from Tokyo, the capital city of Japan to the attractive port city of Nagasaki and various towns in between to discover the wonders of this stunning country.

Japan cannot be beaten for its beautiful lakes, woodlands and cherry blossoms, but a view not to be missed is that of Mt Fuji on a clear day. Our Japan adventure tours offer you classic Japanese experiences from visiting temples and shrines in Kyoto to staying in traditional Ryokans or finishing a long day at a Sento, a communal Japanese bathhouse. If a communal bath isn’t quite your style why not head out for a meal of sushi washed down with a few sakes This traditional rice wine this will help you to get up the courage to belt out a few songs at the karaoke bar! From the modern glitzy cities to the small villages, our Japan adventure tours will show all sides of this wondrous land.

As a holiday destination, Japan takes some beating. Contrasts abound and visitors will certainly feel enriched on all levels. Ancient temples and tranquil shrines lull them into stillness and contemplation, only for the famed ski-slopes to let them cut loose at high speeds. The wealth of fine cuisine ensures that the taste buds do not feel left out!

On top of all that, there is another thing that makes my feet itch to return. My desire to surf Japan. The big swells of the typhoon season.

It is the combination of the usual Japanese draw cards and the surprisingly excellent waves that make it so alluring for a surf adventure. Many other surf destinations have been homogenized; the surf camps, boat charters, and banana pancakes, look and taste the same worldwide. Japan serves up some refreshing new flavors, especially in the rural Inaka.

An unchanged culture is on display all day every day. It is there as you negotiate a maze of rice paddies to get to a secret surf spot, and it is there as the bemused Oba-chins stop work to stare at you  the lost foreigners with funny planks on the roof.

A blissful feeling arises when you are immersed in this slower side of the Japanese culture. You feel as if you have leapt back in time to a land still ruled by feudal lords and Samurai swords. To expose your senses to such a unique experience and at the same time indulge in a lifetime passion like surfing is truly something you never forget.
