    Japan

    Jane's verdict:

    In amongst the excitement of Tokyo and Kyoto, riding the Silver Bullet train and exploring the tropical islands of Okinawa, honeymooners owe it to themselves to experience Japan’s hot springs. Slip into a yukata robe and split-toe tabi socks for an array of traditional treatments, and let that wedding stress drift away.

    InsideJapan Tours says

    Japan is renowned for its dazzlingly fast-paced cities but there is also stunning countryside, snow-capped mountains, sweeping beaches and the tropical islands of Okinawa, to say nothing of the rich cultural heritage.

    As the leading specialists in Japan, we can tailor make your perfect honeymoon to suit your tastes and budget. We’ll set everything up, leaving the two of you to explore this amazing country, with our local team on hand if you need any advice or help along the way.

    We offer a range of self-guided adventures. For something truly romantic, choose our Hot Springs of Japan honeymoon; soak in natural hot springs (onsen) and enjoy some spa-style pampering in between exciting stays in Tokyo and Kyoto. You will stay in a combination of traditional ‘ryokan’ inns and modern city centre hotels to suit your taste and budget and travel by train – including the Silver Bullet.

    A highlight is bound to be a stay at Lamp-No-Yado Inn, a hideaway on the west Japan Sea coast. It stands at the bottom of a cliff on the edge of the sea and, at night, the whole place is lit by lamps and candles. Relax in the open air hot baths as the sun slowly drops below the horizon – a seriously romantic and intrinsically Japanese experience.
