Japan offers much, with a history and culture so far removed from the West, that you won't believe you're still on the same planet. Its landscapes range from sparkling cityscapes to snow-capped mountain territories. So, it's not always easy to know where to start when thinking about booking a vacation to Japan. How can you ensure you take in everything this multi-faceted country has to offer within a short space of time?

What to do? Where to go?

Speaking with our Luxury Travel Specialists is the perfect place to start. Well-versed in Japan's rich culture, history and traditions, they'll advise you on the best places to stay, the most interesting sights to see, and the most comfortable, yet sustainable ways to travel.

From sushi to skyscrapers, mountains to monuments, and ancient temples to high-speed trains, Japan truly is a world in one country

We have several popular itineraries that have been carefully crafted to include the most iconic destinations and activities.

Or you can create your own in consultation with our Travel Specialists, who’ll help you select the very best options according to your unique preferences.

Think about including an afternoon tea ceremony with a maiko (apprentice geisha) in Kyoto, a helicopter tour of Tokyo after dark, Samurai sword dancing lessons or unforgettable foodie experiences such as sake tasting sessions, bento-making classes, and a street food safari in Osaka.

And no trip to Japan would be complete without an indulgent dip in the volcanic waters of a mountain hot spring.

100% of Reviewers Recommend Wayfairer Travel

“This is the second time Wayfairer has planned a trip, the first being a Safari and we will definitely have them plan another trip. Our journey to Antarctica exceeded our expectations".

"This was a dream trip I had thought about for years and somehow they managed to exceed what I had hoped for. Could not have asked for more."

"An outstanding experience with Wayfairer, Cat and Juan helped to organise, and manage, an amazing safari for a group of six. Their meticulous planning, endless enthusiasm and huge knowledge of the area meant that we had a truly unforgettable experience, we even had a fabulous birthday party in the middle of the Mara. The highest recommendation is that we plan to use Wayfairer again and again!"

"This was my second trip with Wayfairer - my first (to Africa) was so amazing, I was worried that I would be disappointed.....not a chance. Once again, the itinerary, the guides, the little touches, were superb. I am already thinking about what trip I will have Wayfairer plan next! For anyone trying to decide where to go - Peru was absolutely amazing! It may be one of the most under-rated countries. Machu Pichu was breathtaking, but there was also so much more to see and do....let Wayfairer take you on amazing journey!"

"Our trip was a dream come true. The arrangements made by Wayfairer exceeded our expectations. The accommodations were as good or better than the descriptions in our trip documents. The staff at each camp were wonderful and the guides were knowledgeable and friendly. We will highly recommend Wayfairer to any of our friends who are considering an adventure vacation."

"Wayfairer are absolutely superb - from our initial consultation, the advice on destination, the booking process, the concierge service, the recommendation of hotels, organisation of transport, advice on activities to the friendliness of stay it could not have been better. We will look to book all big holidays with Wayfairer from now on and will recommend them to everyone."

"Incredibly helpful service and access to the best facilities and great rates. Don't book anywhere else."

"Recently returned from an amazing safari trip inc Vic falls, Chobe, Okavango Delta and the Kalahari desert. Right from the first engagement with Wafairer and all the way through the trip has been so smooth. The recommendations and attention to detail on the itinerary were incredible. Thankyou on this once in a lifetime trip."

"Wayfairer and Juan assisted planning our trip to South Africa. They were very knowledgeable and professional. Juan was very responsive with answers when I had any questions at all. It was very nice working with Juan and will definetly use this company again. I have recommended them to friends and family. The vacation was perfect thanks to Juan and Wayfairer."

"Excellent service throughout. A wonderful trip and truly a holiday of a lifetime. Thank you."

"We just returned from a fabulous Kenya vacation for our family..ages 3 thru 70. Jess gave us great advice, offered wonderful accommodations, was really flexible, was willing to work with our budget. June helped us implement the trip. Thanks to both of them."

"Wayfairer organised our trip to Tanzania & Zanzibar. From initial contact Leonie and the team were very professional & informative. They listened to our requirements and put together an amazing itinerary within our budget. We were kept informed every step of the way. The holiday was amazing and all went smoothly. We felt confident that Wayfairer were only a call away should an issue arise. We wouldn't hesitate to use Wayfairer for our next holiday!"
