Day 1 / Origin - Tokyo
Ready to go? Twenty days of enjoyment are about to begin – bon voyage!
Days 2 to 6 / Tokyo
After the long journey, on arrival in Tokyo you will stamp your Japan Rail Pass and settle into your hotel. The rest of the days will be free and you will have to organise yourselves to maximise your stay.
Tokyo offers you an endless number of places to visit: neighbourhoods such as Akihabara, the technological and freak district; Asakusa and the Sensoji temple; Shibuya and its neon lights and shopping centre; Shinjuku, where part of Lost in translation was filmed and where part of the gay nightlife takes place; or the famous Toyosu fish market.
As if that wasn’t enough, there are also must-visit excursions to temples, national parks and the Japanese countryside. Must-visits include Nikko, Hakone, Mount Fuji and Kamakura.
Days 7 and 8 / Takayama - Shirakawago
We head for Takayama, a town in the mountainous area of Hida. Its magnificent historic centre is a journey back in time several centuries that will pleasantly surprise you. Be sure to visit its temples and shrines, its sake cellars and traditional houses.
We suggest a visit to Shirakawago, a historic village surrounded by mountains, a World Heritage Site, very characteristic for its typical triangular thatched roof houses, some of which are more than 250 years old.
Day 9 / Hiroshima - Miyajima
Next stop, Hiroshima. The city sadly known for the events that triggered the end of World War II. Here you can visit the Peace Park or the castle.
On arrival in Hiroshima, we recommend taking the ferry to the island of Miyakima, home to Itsukushima Shrine and the famous floating torii, the most important in Japan.
Days 10 to 13 / Kyoto
The next day, departure for Kyoto, the former imperial capital and an icon of art, culture, spirituality and gastronomy. As with Tokyo, Kyoto is a sprawling city where organisation is essential.
The Fushimi-Inari temple is one of its iconic postcards and an obligatory stop, as well as the Golden Pavilion, the Temple of Pure Water, the bamboo forest of Arashiyama, the temple of the Beach Pavilion or its traditional neighbourhoods.
Finally, on another day you can take a trip to Nara, another of the ancient capitals, where you can visit temples such as Todaiji or its typical parks.
Day 14 / Osaka
Our last day in Japan can be used to visit Osaka, from where we will depart for the Maldives. In the country’s third largest metropolis, a large port city and the commercial centre of the region, where we can do our final shopping, visit its monuments and enjoy Japanese cuisine for the last time.
In the evening, we will depart for the Maldives, with a stopover in Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok.
Days 15 to 18 / Maldives
Have you enjoyed Japan, maybe now your body is asking for a break? Don’t worry, you’ve come to the perfect place. After landing at Malé airport, a seaplane or speed boat will take you to your hotel, where you will spend the next few days without worrying about anything at all.
The Maldives is a small country in the middle of the Indian Ocean made up of more than a thousand islands in 26 atolls. It is famous for its cabin hotels in the middle of a sea of blue waters and white sandy beaches. It will delight your honeymoon.
Days 19 and 20 / Maldives - Origin
Your honeymoon is coming to an end. We hope it has been as intense and special as you expected. Today it’s time to pack your bags and go back home.
Have a safe trip back and we hope to see you again soon!
