Family Summer Beach Holiday

13 Nights: from US$27339 (per family) Trip Code: SBH

A deluxe family holiday taking you to the must-see cities of Tokyo and Kyoto, via the beautiful Hakone National Park for a traditional ryokan stay, before finally finishing off with four nights in a luxurious beach hotel in Kashikojima on the coast of the Ise-Shima National Park. Read more >

All the way from the windswept shores of Hokkaido to the sunnier climes of southern Okinawa, the Japanese archipelago boasts some excellent beaches. Although the Japanese love to play by the rules and only go to the beach during the designated beach season (July and August), the country's warm summer climate means a beach break is a fantastic holiday option from May to September.

Your beach accommodation in Kashikojima is a 60 square metre suite with two Western-style beds for Mum and Dad and a tatami mat area with futons for the kids. The highlight here is an outdoor onsen hot spring bath on a private balcony overlooking the sea - a very Japanese twist on a beach break!

There is a lot to see near Kashikojima besides the beach, including the Ise Shrine (Shinto's most sacred site), the famous Meoto Iwa wedded rocks, Toba aquarium and Edo Wonderland, a samurai theme park.

This itinerary also takes in Japan's classic sights, from the neon skyscrapers of Tokyo's Shinjuku district at the beginning of the holiday to the ancient shrines, temples and gardens of Kyoto later on. We've included private guides for full days in both cities and hands-on activities to help you learn about Japanese culture. All the family can get stuck into a home cooking course in Tokyo, and learn the art of traditional indigo dyeing in Kyoto.

As you journey between these iconic cities you'll travel with a private car and driver to Mount Fuji's fifth station, through the scenic Fuji Five Lakes and finally on to Hakone National Park. Here you'll spend two nights in a quintessential traditional ryokan, where all the family can don yukata dressing gowns and enjoy a fabulous kaiseki dinner served in the privacy of your room.

Pricing: This trip costs from £21,030 for a family of four (based on two adults, one teenager and one child aged 6-11).
