Family Adventure in Japan

13 days from £8,470 for 2023 per person

This itinerary features in our Top 10 Family Holidays.

Tokyo is a blast of neon colour and just watching the city in action is a lot of fun in itself. You have a whole host of great theme parks to choose from, with Hello Kitty Land and Kidzania for younger children, and Fujikyu Highlands Rollercoaster Park for older ones and adrenaline lovers. There are also great views of Mount Fuji to be had from the top of the biggest drop, but if that sounds a bit much then there is a smaller coastal rollercoaster and dolphin park at Hakkeijima.

Catch the bullet train down to Osaka for the fun of the castle, the Ferris wheel and the new Harry Potter world at Universal Studios. The passageways of feudal castles and ancient temples in Kyoto then provide a great contrast to neon Japan, then it’s up into the Japan Alps for cycling and hot spring baths in scenic Takayama before another great castle in the mountain town of Matsumoto.

Round off your trip with a day trip from Tokyo to Hakone, where you’ve got one of the best chances of seeing the great mountain while having fun on the mountain railway, cable cars and mock pirate ships that get you around the national park. No family trip to Japan would be complete without trying out karaoke with lots of western songs to choose from. All of this can be experienced in one of the cleanest, safest and most child-friendly countries in the world.

This is purely a suggested itinerary so can be booked as it is, or used as a starting point for creating your own luxury tailor-made tour of Japan.

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
