The Japan Alps beckon with a trip to the small rural town of Takayama; breathe in the clean mountain air when taking a guided bike ride.

Kyoto, the cultural nexus of the nation is your next base for 3 nights, staying in a beautiful, private machiya townhouse. As well as a half day with a knowledgeable private guide, you will try your hand at traditional cloth dyeing.

The penultimate stop of this fabulous journey is the coastline of the stunning Ise-Shima National Park where you can enjoy both the beach and copious hot spring baths.
