Zen and the Art of Planning the Perfect Japan Holiday

Lush paddy fields, as far as the eye can see, are skirted by traditional Japanese farmhouses. As your Japan holiday unfolds, iconic Mount Fujiama glistens in the evening light. Soon your bullet train will roll into Tokyo, with its neon lights, urban crush, and towering cityscape. Quite a contrast to the serenity of the sacred Shinto island of Miyajima, where you spent the morning! Japan’s living heritage is best captured in Kyoto, with its ethereal traditional architecture. Step into Zen gardens, ancient temples and shrines, and walk through a bamboo forest. A cooking class here is as much about aesthetic and design as it is about food. Learn to cook traditional bento box dishes, balancing taste, texture, presentation, and even color. Attend a matcha tea ceremony, or a calligraphy workshop.

In Japan, shokunins are artisans dedicated to exquisite craftsmanship. Similarly, at Enchanting Travels we are the experts who can craft a stellar itinerary for you. Let us help you uncover not just the country’s natural wonders, cultural heritage, and high technology, but also its beating heart, efficiency, and gracious etiquette.

Your private Japan holidays, tailored by passionate travel experts, await.
