Experience the unforgettable local cuisine and hospitality unique to countryside Japan

8 days from $6200pp | 3 -10 November 2019

Autumn in Japan is a glorious season to visit, showcasing the natural beauty of this stunning country with brilliantly coloured foliage.

The dynamism that is Kyushu — the southernmost major island of Japan. A series of volcanic ranges, including the world’s largest active volcanic crater, Mount Aso, are located in Kyushu. Kyushu’s strategic position near South Korea and China have allowed it to act as a focal point of cultural, religious, and artistic exchanges from ancient times in Japan, and evolved with the arrival of Europeans, with port of Nagasaki involved in trade with the West.  During World War II, on August 9th, 1945, Nagasaki was ravaged by the Atomic Bomb. There is so much to see and so much to experience in this small island.
