Itinerary

  • Arrive at any time and welcome to Japan's neon metropolis that's always on the move. There are no plans until the evening welcome meeting, so spend some time exploring. Choose to get to know your fellow travellers over an authentic Japanese dinner.
  • Get your bearings with an orientation walk before enjoying free time to explore buzzing Tokyo. Opt to check out Yoyogi Park, Asakusa shrine, quirky Harajuku, Shibuya Crossing, or explore the city's massive selection of shops and cafés. This evening, head out for a night of fun, drinks, and dancing for your first night out. Pick the best looking spot and cheers to new adventures and friends!
  • Board a bullet train to picturesque Takayama, surrounded by the Japanese Alps. Take in the quaint streets of old town—lined with craft shops and sake breweries (mid-day sake bombs anyone?)—on a CEO-led orientation walk. Enjoy the rest of the day to explore the area. In the evening, kick back and relax in a traditional inn complete with tatami floors, Japanese futons, and an onsen hot spring. Delight in a restorative soak in the healing waters.
  • Catch a train to Japan's imperial capital, Kyoto, and spend the rest of the day discovering this historic city. In the evening, choose to venture to Kiyamachi—a kilometer stretch of popular nightlife running alongside the Kamo River—to marvel at street musicians and experience the cabarets. For your big night out, grab a drink on our tab and release your inner rock star during a karaoke session.
  • Kyoto is yours to explore today and the options are endless, so grab a buddy and get out there! Visit some of Kyoto's beautiful temples, participate in a tea ceremony, learn the way of the Samurai, or take a calligraphy class (so you can make that postcard home look extra fancy).
  • Today is departure day, but do not fret! There is no such thing as goodbye, only until next time. Share some last laughs and exchange social medias with your fellow travellers before departing at any time.
