Held every July at the Naeba Ski Resort, Fuji Rock is the ultimate music festival experience.

Fantastic food at a great price, no queues to buy beer, all-night hot spring baths, a stunning mountain setting, an incredibly friendly crowd and, of course, some of the best in British, American & Japanese indie, dance and world music. Combine it with a stay in buzzing Tokyo, and this is really a trip to savour.

With past line-ups having featured international megastars such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Oasis, The Pixies, Björk, Coldplay, The Stone Roses, and Eminem; the best of British indie, such as Arctic Monkeys and Super Furry Animals; and festival favourites Scissor Sisters and Happy Mondays; you would have thought that Japan's annual Fuji Rock festival would be better known to music-lovers across the globe.

But in an era when you have to stump up a deposit nearly a year in advance to get your hands on a ticket for Glastonbury, Fuji Rock remains an undiscovered gem on the world festival circuit; a festival where the original counter-culture ideals of Glastonbury still hold true, where "alternative" still carries some meaning, and where relentless consumerism can be left behind for the weekend.

Oh, and the toilets are clean, there isn't a spot of litter to be seen, there are public showers available - there is even a steak-eating competition with the chance to win a year's supply of beef! Fuji Rock is a festival to treasure and we can guarantee you will have a fantastic time.

Before and after the festival you will be having plenty of fun with a stay in Japan's exciting capital city, Tokyo. Use the included five-day JR East Rail Pass to explore the many sights and sounds of this amazing metropolis before joining one of our tour leaders and other Fuji Rockers for an included dinner and drinks.

After dinner we will head out for optional karaoke - it should be a good night and offer a great opportunity to really "get beneath the surface" of this fascinating city.
