Sample Japan's eccentric side Tokyo, Japan

Prepare to have all your preconceptions about Japan’s quirky side confirmed on this eccentric, off-the-beaten-path adventure. Begin in Tokyo, with a leisurely day strolling through its art-filled neighbourhoods. Then it’s all aboard a train travelling to a traditional onsen in the alps where you’ll soak and spy snow monkeys bathing in hot pools, before uncovering a secret underground bunker complex in Nagano.

In Osaka, come face to face with the most unlikely of monuments – the world’s largest garbage incinerator – and try your hand at driving a simulated shinkansen at Nagoya’s Japan Railway Museum. At the Site of Reversible Destiny you’ll traverse a bizarre landscape of thought-provoking art, before you settle in for a stay at a centuries-old former brothel. This is the Japan you’ll be raving about long after you’ve returned home.
