Hot Springs & Countryside Honeymoon

12 Nights: from US$6912 per person (twin share) Trip Code: HSC

Japan's hot spring bathing culture and scenic countryside make it a wonderfully romantic setting for a honeymoon. Although at most onsen baths men and women bathe separately, we've chosen some wonderful ryokan inns with private outdoor hot springs for you to enjoy together. Read more >

The pinnacle of this honeymoon is a stay in the wonderful hot spring resort of Kinosaki Onsen. A little town full of traditional buildings and canals filled with koi carp, Kinosaki is home to seven bathhouses, all of which make use of the area's natural thermal springs. Your ryokan will give you yukata robes and geta sandals so you can clip-clop between bathhouses, a wonderful way to absorb traditional Japanese culture!

Your Kinosaki ryokan room will have a private hot spring bath for you to enjoy as a couple, as will your accommodation in Matsue. Matsue is a lovely coastal town known for its strong samurai history, impressive original castle and the fantastic Adachi art museum.

A romantic highlight of the trip is the sacred island of Miyajima: by day a busy tourist destination, by night a deserted oasis. We highly recommend an evening stroll to the water's edge to see the famous red torii gate of Itsukushima shrine lit up at night.

Of course, alongside these traditional retreats we've included modern boutique hotel stays in the must-see cities of Tokyo and Kyoto. In Tokyo we've included a day with a guide who can take you out to an izakaya or Japanese pub to help you decipher the menu and get the best from Japan's fantastic cuisine. In Kyoto you'll both have the opportunity to try on exquisite wedding kimono! With professional photographs included, this will be a fantastic honeymoon souvenir.
