Ten days off the beaten track in the quiet calm of Fukuoka, Saga and Nagasaki. This is a private tour to suit a small group: a couple, a family or friends who want to travel by themselves to see a very different side of Japan.
Departure dates: 30 March, 27 July and 17 August 2022 - suitable for UK school holidays!
See Japan at a More Gentle Pace
Fukuoka, Saga and Nagasaki are three neighbouring prefectures nestled on Kyushu, Japan’s westernmost main island. Forget the bustling metropolis of Tokyo – life is a little slower here, perfect for people who want to experience a slice of real Japanese life without the urban sprawl.
Rustic charm and relaxation
A city in harmony with nature
Steeped in history
Sustainability and Ethical TravelThis tour has been built around sustainability and harmony with the natural world, which means less time in the big cities. You’ll be out cycling, riding canal boats and even watching dolphins, also a unique cruise in an oyster fishing boat and several horse-riding excursions are arranged for you.
The Old WaysJapan has many historical arts and crafts, and this tour showcases a selection of Kyushu’s best. You’ll visit a kiln that creates the famous Imari porcelain – once so popular with European royalty – as well as a paper-making workshop, a lesson in Japanese confectionary and a flower-arranging class, while you’ll hand-make your own soba noodles and attend a traditional tea ceremony. You’ll even try your hand at Yabusame – the ancient art of horseback archery!
Every meal is included in the package, and we’ve worked hard to introduce you to as many of Kyushu’s delicious local speciality cuisines as possible. From the world-famous Fukuoka ramen and local cuts of sushi to various hyper-local styles of rice bowl, soba and chanpon noodles, plus a little Wagyu along the way, there’s an incredible new food for you to discover throughout!
