CITY STOP

CITY STOP

Bathe in the bright neon lights and towering skyscrapers of Japan's mesmerising capital city, Tokyo, or immerse yourself in Kyoto’s ancient delights, exploring century old temples and joining traditional tea ceremonies.

Or tag on a stay in Sapporo and visit the country's oldest brewery. We love city stops in Japan, exploring side streets and getting off the beaten track. Take a serene tour through Hiroshima and the World Heritage Atomic Bomb Dome or wander through gardens filled with shape-shifting bonsai trees. And as spring warms the air, you may even be lucky enough to witness the early bloom of the cherry blossom festival, where you can mingle with captivated locals wielding their cameras.

With so much to see and experience, no ski trip to Japan is complete without a city stopover to truly soak up the spirit of this fascinating country.

Settle in with an expectant sumo crowd, hear the salt grains scatter as the ring is blessed and feel the tension rise as the wrestlers crouch.

Or discover true focus and your inner samurai with a lesson in sword technique. Feel the cold white paint on your skin and the layers of a traditional kimono fold perfectly into place during a day as a geisha, or relax and let the soothing heat and smooth waters of a traditional onsen cleanse you.

From the vibrant reds of the maple trees and wooden temples to the sizzling sounds and enticing aromas of grilled meats, a journey into Japanese culture is a voyage for all the senses.
