Theme Park Family Adventure

12 Nights: price on request Trip Code: TP

Japan has a huge range of amazing theme parks and this itinerary ticks off the very best. You'll discover Japan's take on Western classics like Disney and Universal Studios, as well as some more home-grown theme parks - from the hot springs of SpaWorld to the rollercoasters of Fuji-Q Highland.

This holiday starts and ends in Tokyo, allowing you two full days to visit not one but two Disney resorts. Disneyland offers classic Disney modelled on the US version, whilst Disneysea is the only one of its kind in the world: a resort with all your favourite Disney characters and a marine theme. The rides at Disneysea are also higher, faster and scarier!

Also in Tokyo you'll visit the wonderful Studio Ghibli Museum, a shrine to Hayao Miyazaki's anime films such as Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke, and Sanrio Puroland - home to all things Hello Kitty. A day trip from the capital will also take you to the exhilarating rollercoasters of Fuji-Q Highland, located in the shadow of majestic Mount Fuji.

Kyoto boasts a fantastic day out in the Toei Eiga Mura, a theme park and movie set in one. Here you can explore film sets depicting old Edo Period streets, a traditional courthouse and a geisha "floating world." There are daily samurai stunt shows and you can even dress up as a ninja or geisha.

The third city on this itinerary is Osaka, home to Universal Studios Japan where a new Harry Potter attraction is about to open. Whilst in Osaka we also highly recommend a visit to SpaWorld, where you can spend a day relaxing in hot spring baths. Men and women have separate floors for the onsen areas, but the whole family can come together for the top floor water park complete with whirlpools and water slides.

We wouldn't want you to miss out on classic sightseeing whilst in Japan, so this holiday also includes a day with a private guide in Tokyo and a guided cycle tour of Kyoto. In Kyoto your accommodation will be a beautifully renovated machiya, a traditional townhouse converted into a self-catering family lodging.

Pricing: This trip costs from £8,160 for a family of four (based on two adults, one teenager and one child aged 6-11).
