Beginning with three nights in Tokyo, you'll get a taste of Japan's futuristic neon capital before exchanging it all for the stunning Japanese countryside as you fly south to board the Kyushu Seven Stars train service.

With three nights on the service, you'll be privy to an expertly curated programme of activities, introducing areas of this lush and rural island that are very rarely seen by international visitors. You'll soak in open-air hot spring baths, spend the night on tatami at an exclusive ryokan inn, enjoy exquisite included cuisine made with seasonal ingredients, and have plenty of time to relax in the luxurious surroundings of the train itself.

After the conclusion of your Kyushu rail adventure, you'll make your way back toward Tokyo by means of a very different train - the iconic bullet train, or Shinkansen. Along the way you'll stop for stays in the cities of Hiroshima and Kyoto, before concluding with a final night at the Andaz in Tokyo - one of our favourite luxury hotels in Japan.

Throughout your trip you'll receive the highest level of support from our partners on the ground, with expert local guides and private drivers who'll do their best to make your trip as smooth and comfortable as possible. You'll also enjoy a range of exclusive experiences - including an evening of sake tasting with a French expert, and an unforgettable private audience with a trainee geisha.

All in all, this itinerary provides the perfect combination of rural exploration and big-city excitement, all while staying in only the very best luxury hotels and inns.
