Bond in Japan

Special 'You Only Live Twice' 13 night itinerary

Trace the steps of Agent 007 as he chased down SPECTRE along with the Japanese Secret Service Ninja Force in 1967. Discover some of the stunning locations that put Japan on the map with this very special Bond influenced itinerary. The 13 night Bond’s Japan package includes stays at Tokyo’s New Otani hotel AKA SPECTRE’s Osato Chemicals HQ, travel to the castle town of Himeji which was home to the secret Ninja training camp and stay in amongst the mountains and volcano of Kirishima national park which saw Sean Connery’s helicopter pursuit by evil SPECTRE agents.

This self guided trip also travels to the ‘art island’ of Naoshima staying at the fantastic Benesse House. The island houses the 007 Museum which is dedicated to “The Man with the Red Tattoo” novel which was never made into a film, but was based partly on the island. Other features of the trip include a stay in Kagoshima city with the James Bond-esq villain lair of Sakurajima Volcano siting in the bay, day trips available to nearby minor locations such as Akime fishing village, a stay in the castle city of Kumamoto and the cultural capital of Kyoto providing day trips to Kobe port and other Bond locations from the film.
