- Skiing & Winter Sports
With freezing temperatures and a surfeit of mountainous terrain, Japan provides an exhilarating platform for winter sports. From the vast, windswept island of Hokkaido to the Japanese Alps, superb powder conditions and a staggering 600 ski resorts mean that there's no better place to hit the slopes. What's more, a winter sports holiday can easily be combined with a cultural module, including spectacular festivals, adorable snow monkeys, and fewer crowds than at any other time of year.
Boasting thousands of islands with a combined coastline of 34,000 km (21,000 mi), Japan just might be the diving world's best-kept secret. From the Izu Peninsula just a stone's throw from Tokyo to the remote Ogasawara Islands, and from Yakushima Island to the Okinawan archipelago - Japan boasts some spectacular marine life, with diving conditions to rival the best in the world. We can work diving into any kind of holiday, and we even run a diving-themed tour. Just have a look at our diving section to start planning your submarine adventure!
