Essence of South Korea and Japan

Look across the Demilitarised Zone into North Korea - one of the most closed countries on Earth, ride the bullet train, and ascend Mount Fuji on this first-class tour of South Korea and Japan. You’ll take in the highlights of two capital cities, contrasting traditional culture with dazzling skyscrapers in both Seoul and Tokyo, visit palace and temples, a world-famous beach, and learn about the sombre history of North and South Korea, as you travel by high-speed rail through both countries. With departures in both spring and autumn, take the opportunity to see the beautiful cherry blossoms or spectacular autumns colours that adorn the landscapes. This relaxed tour also has plenty for foodies with sushi making, authentic Korean fried chicken, a traditional Yakitori dinner, tea tasting and visits to both a Ninja and Sumo restaurant.
