Tokyo and Kyoto Multi Centre

Tokyo is many people’s Far Eastern dream destination, a city whose skyline changes as often as the sun rises and sets. This ultra-modern metropolis was surely designed with one eye on the future and the other firmly focused on the past. Ancient shrines sit side by side with leading-edge technology and though the city is densely populated you will be hard pressed to find litter on the streets. Tokyo is obsessed with fashion and shopping and benefits from some spectacular cityscapes, such as the historic Shibuya intersection. Transfer by bullet train to the ancient imperial capital city of Kyoto. The calming nature of this city distils many elements of Japanese culture into one charming destination.

Original examples of Japanese architecture abound, to thrill those with a love of all things Eastern. Walk among the deer and through the cherry blossom trees in beautiful Nara Park or stroll through Kyoto's uber-traditional Gion Area. Be sure to visit the Kyoto Imperial Palace, while the Arashiyama bamboo forest is a thing of rare beauty, particularly when the maple trees turn red in December.
