Description of Japan family holiday

Throw yourself into the whirl of Japan on an 11 day family holiday that whisks you from Tokyo to Kyoto via the hot springs of Hakone and past the sacred slopes of Mount Fuji.

This small group tour gives you every chance to learn together as a family as well as making new friends along the way with visits to traditional markets, tranquil temples and fast-paced city streets culminating in an eclectic, exciting adventure – exactly as you’d expect from life in Japan.

Spending at least a couple of nights in each of Tokyo, Kyoto and Hakone allows you to really get orientated as well as encouraging organic exploration and time to bond together as a family enveloped within an endless merry-go-round of cultural and contemporary delights.

Holiday type
This trip is for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re travelling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip. Travelling our way is a bit like travelling with a group of friends. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Our family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places, but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. So we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools, and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Japan family holiday

As adventure travellers we relish and celebrate the diversity of all corners of the world, along with acknowledging our obligation to protect the environments that we explore. Our aim is to tread lightly, designing and operating holidays which maximise the positive effects of tourism on local economies, cultures and the environment whilst minimising any negative impacts. We aim to engage all our customers in utilising the potential of tourism as a tool to aid sustainable development. We believe that responsible travellers are always welcome the world over.

We travel in small groups (max 3-5 families) so have a minimal impact on the environment as we go. We work hand in hand on this itinerary with our local operator, who employs on our behalf local group leaders, drivers and the local site guides we use throughout the itinerary, creating vital local employment. We stay in locally owned guesthouses and hotels, eat in local restaurants and source supplies en route as we travel, ensuring that as much of the money as possible spent operating this trip finds its ways back into the local communities which we are visiting.

We only use local group leaders whom we regularly train and work closely with to ensure that they are fully engaged in ensuring travellers not only have a fantastic holiday, but also that they have the tools to help our passengers understand the nature of the environment we are passing through and know how to minimise the impact that they have. This includes everything from where to buy souvenirs and supplies locally to taking all rubbish with you, leaving nothing behind. Not only does more of the money we generate stay within the communities we are visiting, but the specialised local knowledge and expertise of our guides gives our travellers a unique experience.

Throughout this trip, the group will travel on local buses, trains, boats and trams, plus two nights are spent at a ryokan - Japanese style accommodation with Japanese style food and thus a very traditional experience! There’s the chance to visit traditional markets in Tokyo, and an overnight stay in a temple provides direct income to the monks who run it; an important financial resource for those involved, that provides us with a unique experience.

It’s inescapable that flying to destinations involves burning fossil fuels, therefore increasing carbon emission. We work with The Carbon Neutral Company, offering all clients the opportunity to offset their international flight emissions. The Carbon Neutral Company work with projects all over the world from community schemes to environmental initiatives, all designed to make lives a little better. We also contribute £2 per person towards offsetting every client’s in-country travel. We fully offset all emissions from our staff travel and run an energy efficient office.

We have a foundation that collects the funds that you donate to us to support our projects. All our customers are invited to make a £1 per person contribution to the foundation at the time of booking. We will match every contribution that you make with our own £1. Every quarter all contributors are invited to vote on a shortlist of nominated projects – so it really is YOUR foundation
