|Flavours of Tokyo
Japan 4 days ex Tokyo
Japanese food is one of the world's most famous cuisines – which is a well earned reputation and rightly so! Tokyo is one of the most
amazing cities in Asia, if not the world. Put them together and you have a great place to learn more about Japanese food while having fun
seeing some of the great sights this extraordinary city has to offer. We have designed a comprehensive itinerary to discover as many of the
famous aspects of Japanese food – sushi, sashimi, hand made noodles – as well surprising the traveler with some of the not so famous
but equally interesting and, more importantly, delicious! We do this all from our wonderful traditional inn base of the Shigetsu ryokan in the
Asakusa area, the heart of Tokyo's old ‘downtown' area where many aspects of Japanese food were developed or refined nearly 400 years
ago, and a short way from the city's current heart and all you expect from the New Tokyo.
|Day 1 Arrive Tokyo
A fusion of both an ancient and modern mecca, Tokyo is one of the
most amazing cities in Asia, if not the world. From a sleepy coastal
town in the early 17th century, it became one of the largest cities in
the world within a century. Now only a few countries can claim
economic output which exceeds that of this Metropolis.
Days 2-3 Discover the Flavours of Tokyo
Guided through your private exploration of Tokyo, you will visit the
highlights of the old and new. You will be introduced to the local
cuisine, experience the hospitality of a traditional Japanese Inn and
travel with the locals on the worldclass public transportation system.
Day 4 Depart Tokyo
Today is at your leisure in Tokyo and a chance to buy some special
souvenirs or do some final sightseeing!
Although it is a great opportunity to stay in a Japanese-style room at
the Japanese Inn we understand that it may not be for everyone. The
Inn has Western-style rooms. Please advise us of your preference at
time of booking. Unless otherwise advised the Japanese-style room
