Group Solo Travel in Japan

Travel solo as part of a luxury group tour to Japan

why travel solo to japan?

Travelling to Japan solo as part of a group tour is the closest you’ll get to visiting another world. This country is as individual and authentic as they come – and so much more than the bright lights of Tokyo.

It’s a rare thing to hop on a plane today and not come across some sense of the Western world. But not in Japan. From the frenetic, mesmerizing cities of Osaka and Tokyo to the quiet magic of Kyoto – in just one trip, you’ll feel like you’ve been fast-forwarded centuries into the future while also travelling back into the past.

Just imagine the taste of the freshest sushi, the excitement of late-night karaoke, the wonder of spotting a real geisha shuffling along a misty lantern-lit alley, trying your hand at ninja techniques or even meeting a real-life sumo wrestler… Excited yet? Us too.

Our Japan trips

Top places to visit in Japan

Tokyo

Combining the past with the futuristic, Tokyo is a sprawling city with distinct neighbourhoods, some ultra-modern, others historical. Whether you decide to explore the neon streets of ‘Electric Town’ or seek out older Tokyo, you’ll never be bored here.

Arashiyama

Head out to Arashiyama to venture into the famous bamboo forest, where vast swathes of bamboo tower above you. Meander through these 14th-century gardens scattered with temples and shrines, which have remained pristine despite wars, fires and various historical dramas.

Osaka

Known as the city of kuidaore (eat till you drop), Osaka is a food lover’s dream. Taste a variety of local delicacies, from octopus dumplings to the best kitsune udon in Japan by searching out hidden, lesser-known restaurants, followed up with a drink in an izakaya (Japanese pub).

Hiroshima

Explore Hiroshima’s past at Peace Memorial Park and Museum., then see how the city is now a leafy, laidback hub with beautiful boulevards and a cosmopolitan community. From Hiroshima, you can also make your way to the scenic island of Miyajima, home to the iconic Great Torii shrine.
