Wondering what the best places to see in Japan are? The Shinkyo Bridge in Nikko is one of Japan's most photogenic spots, especially for autumn travel.
Instantly recognisable, globally renowned, and even more impressive in real life than any photo can do it justice, Mount Fuji is the ultimate symbol of Japan.
Mount Fuji (or Fujisan, as the mountain is known in Japanese) stands at 3776m above sea level, and is so large that it actually bisects Shizouka and Yamanashi prefectures (both of which are adamant that their view of the mountain is the best).

Worshipped since ancient times, Mount Fuji has also been the subject of countless poems and artworks.
The Highlights of Japan tour takes in Mount Fuji on the way from Hamamatsu to Tokyo, and includes a relaxing cruise on Lake Ashi.
What could be better than sipping a hot drink on the prow of a ship sedately sluicing its way across the waters of Lake Ashi, with Mount Fuji in the background?
Though sometimes hidden behind clouds, you can see magnificent views of Mount Fuji from Lake Ashi on a clear day.
Nikko Toshogu Shrine, Nikko
Our Traditional Japan by Rail tour takes in a day trip from Tokyo to Nikko, but this gorgeous town also makes for a great overnight stay if you have the time.
The ornate Nikko Toshogu Shrine is both a beauty to behold and an important historical cultural property; while the areas’s postcard perfect natural scenery is so stunning it will make you want to start writing haikus about it.
The meticulous detail and lavish decorations of Nikko Toshogu Shrine have helped to make this a must-see Japanese landmark.
The Nikko Toshogu Shrine has a special historical and cultural importance, as it is the final resting place of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first shogun of the Edo period. It is also the most lavishly decorated shrine in Japan, with elaborate wood carvings and a jaw-dropping amount of gold leaf.
As well as the famous shrine and its grounds, the Traditional Japan by Rail tour also visits Kegon Falls, which is one of Japan's "three best waterfalls".
Given its proximity to Tokyo, Nikko makes for a refreshing getaway from the towering skyscrapers of the nation’s capital.
If getting off the tourist trail to see a more traditional side of Japan is more your style, then book the Traditional Japan by Rail tour today and get free international return flights.
Kegon Falls is Nikko's most famous waterfall, and is also one of the best places to view autumn colours in Japan.
The name ‘Kanazawa’ translates to ‘the marsh of gold’, and it’s here in this beautiful city where you can try a gold leaf covered ice cream!
But Kanazawa’s undisputed main attraction has to be Kenrokuen, which is one of Japan’s “three best landscape gardens”, and is said to be the most stunning of them all.
It was designed and created by the Maeda clan over three centuries as a privcate park, but was finally opened to the public in 1874.
Kotojitoro lantern is one of Kenrokuen’s most famous attractions, a tall stone lantern that has two legs instead of just one.
Kenrokuen is a pleasure to visit any time of year.
The gardens are a sprawling yet well-manicured vista of greenery in the summer, and relaxing in Uchihashi-tei tea house with a cool breeze coming off Kasumigaike Pond is a heavenly experience.
In spring, visitors have the chance to walk beneath Kenrokuen’s flowering cherry blossom trees, while autumn brings an explosion of colour as tree leaves change to red, orange and yellow.
And while the gardens may look relatively bare in winter, the snow-covered grounds of Kenrokuen offer a sight that is both serene and magical.
Although Kenrokuen is Kanazawa’s most popular tourist destination, there are also many other stops in town the Japan Discovery tour takes in – such as the preserved samurai district, the Higashi Chaya tea house district, and Omicho Market, Kanazawa’s biggest fresh food market.
The best part about this tour is that you get to spend three nights in this city, so you have plenty of time to soak up Kanazawa’s unique culture.
