Product Code: COAT
from £ 1,860

[Self-Guided] 9 days

ViaJapan Holidays lives up to its name with this great opportunity to visit Japan's two most popular cities, as well as Hong Kong, the gateway to Asia.

As English is widely spoken in Hong Kong it makes a good starting point for a Far East trip. Enjoy shopping in the famous markets of Kowloon, which are located close to your hotel.

Then, travel to Japan, an ideal destination for every traveller, with an abundance of both historic and modern sights and attractions. While English is not the official language, it is widely spoken, particularly in Tokyo and Kyoto. You will have no trouble exploring some of Kyoto's world-famous temples and shrines, such as Kiyomizu Temple or Heian Shrine. Your Japan Rail Pass covers all your long-distance journeys including the bullet train between Kyoto and Tokyo. This significantly reduces the amount of time you will need to spend arranging train tickets. In Tokyo, we recommend Asakusa Kannon Temple and the Observation Deck of Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings in Shinjuku.
