Student Trips to Japan

Looking to book a student trip to Japan? As one of the fastest-growing tourism destinations in the world; with visitors doubling inside of just two years, there's lots of reasons why so many students have put Japan at the top of their travel wish-list; it’s a country that is brimming with culture, beauty and tradition; along with some of the most modern and progressive cities in the world!

One of the most popular times to visit is during spring; when the country’s cherry trees bloom into life; resulting in the picture-perfect pink floral display that the country it known for. For residents, these flowers are extremely symbolic; demonstrating the transient nature of life and symbolising new beginnings. 

Student tours to Tokyo

If you're booking a student trip to Japan, Tokyo is a great place to visit. In the modern metropolis of Tokyo, you’ll find huge skyscrapers, anime shops and an incredible array of eateries lining every street.  It’s one of the most densely populated cities in the world, so it feels like the city literally buzzes with life; but it’s also home to traditional neighbourhoods and beautiful temples for a surprising contrast.

In a busy city like Tokyo, it may be hard to believe, but there are plenty of gardens and parks to escape to for a sense of tranquillity. The Shinjuku Gyoen national gardens is a peaceful retreat from the non-stop action of Tokyo’s bustling centre. These gardens are home to beautifully manicured lawns, picturesque ponds and the aforementioned cherry trees, for breath-taking scenery and a sense of being at one with nature.

When it comes to gastronomy, Japan is a byword for incredible food.  It’s the country that brought the world the delights of sushi, ramen and tempura; with authentic restaurants and cafes lining the streets, you won’t have to go far to find a delicious dining experience. For a diverse range of dishes, stop off at a Shokudō for Japanese or international cuisines at great prices.
