There is something special about the way Japan is able to offer something for everyone. There is the chance to see the history of the country and also the modern and forward looking country that Japan has become.
There are tours that you can book that will allow you to see the best of both sides of Japan and you can see the best sites available on the walking tours. If you manage to include two of the best known peaks here then you will have an exciting and interesting holiday to look back upon.
Walking holidays can be invigorating and enjoyable but if you do have walking difficulties or anything that may prevent you from walking for up to 8 hours a day it may be that you are going to miss out on the highlights of the tour.
The time spent in Kyoto can be spent in a number of different ways and it is considered to be one of the most interesting Cities in the East. It was not affected by either of the world wars so it is an ideal place to go to see the architecture of old Japan. There is the Golden Temple of Kinkakuji that dates back to 1397 plus the Imperial Palace. The chance to view Geishas should not be passed up either!
There will never be any problems when travelling by public transport in Japan as it will always be efficient and clean. It is easy to get from one place to another, and from Kyoto there is a fast trip to Kamikochi which lies in the Sangaku National Park and if you feel energetic, a trip into the Japanese Alps.
No climbing trip in Japan would be complete if it did not include Mt Fuji. There are now many people who make the trip to the summit, although it is as recently as 100 years ago that it was considered too important for the common man to make the ascent. Priests and pilgrims were the only ones allowed up there. Once at the top it will appear that you are a shrine – until you realise that there is also a post office, weather station and a 24 hour noodle bar at the top. Having seen sunrise at the summit you can begin the descent back down and plan the next amazing place you will visit.
Tokyo is bound to be the highlight of the tour and it is hard to belief that at one time it was a fishing village. It is so easy to travel around and you can take in the fish market, the temples and if you have not worn yourself out during the day, the night life here is second to none. For a good idea of the Temples in Japan you could visit Kaneiji Temple which dates back to 1625. At one time it was made up of 30 building s but many were lost as early as1657 in the great fire of Mereiki.
Add to this the food and hospitality and you will have a memorable vacation.
