Expansive windows, observation decks, and a double-decker bar-restaurant offering panoramic views ensure an unforgettable journey.

    After a relaxing 1.5-hour train ride, arrive in Ise, a haven for lovers of the open sea. Your ryôkan awaits, nestled between the charming towns of Ise and Toba, offering the soothing embrace of the ocean breeze. Take advantage of the included local bus pass to explore the surroundings conveniently.

    In the afternoon, embark on a spiritual adventure at Ise-jingû, one of Shintô religion's most sacred shrines. Dedicated to the sun deity, this awe-inspiring sanctuary nestled amidst a dense, serene forest with flowing streams attracts pilgrims from across Asia seeking purification and enlightenment.

  • Day 12 : Meet the fishermen

    Traditional Japanese breakfast at the ryôkan.

    Start your morning immersed in the history of pearl cultivation at the Mikimoto Pearl Museum. Witness a traditional (though undeniably popular with tourists) demonstration by the Ama, the legendary female free divers who have carried on their thousand-year-old practice.

    Later, Japan Experience whisks you away for an exclusive afternoon adventure! Escape the usual tourist trail and delve into the captivating world of Japanese fishing. Your English-speaking guide will lead you on a short 25-minute journey to a hidden gem - a small offshore island rarely visited by travelers

    Here, immerse yourself in the local culture by exploring a bustling fish market, witnessing a thrilling auction, and sharing a delightful lunch with a real Ama! To cap off this unforgettable experience, take a leisurely stroll around the island and connect with its friendly inhabitants. As the afternoon draws to a close, return to the mainland with a treasure trove of memories.

  • Day 13 : Back to modern Japan

    Traditional Japanese breakfast at the ryôkan.

    Kick off your morning with a seaside stroll to the Married Rocks, a 30-minute bus ride from Ise (included in your package).

Your accommodation :

  • Some hotels may ask you to pay a tourist tax on arrival. This depends on the city and even the hotel, as some do not include it in the booking price. Normally, it is 200¥/night/person (about £1.37/1.93$) but can be slightly higher in 4* hotels. It must be paid in cash at the hotel reception. For traditional Japan Experience accommodations, it is included in the initial tour price.
  • Room size: in Japan, a densely populated country where everything is compact, 3-star luxury hotels are of very good quality but the rooms are often quite narrow (12 to 20m2/129 sq ft to 215 sq ft) depending on the hotel. Please note the size of the single room, between 10 and 16m2 (107sq ft and 172sq ft). For more comfort, you can choose our luxury 4* accommodation upgrade option. (This option is only valid for the hotel in Tokyo, not for the traditional accommodation in Kyoto).
  • Double room: Rooms for two people in western hotels have 2 single beds (twin rooms) by default, which can usually be joined together. As an option, you can select a double room instead of a twin if you prefer a double bed.
  • Single room: People travelling alone and wishing to book a single room must pay a supplement at the time of booking. The single room supplement is compulsory for orders with an odd number of participants. Please note that if you request more than two people in a single room, the single room supplement will be applied to all accommodation except for the ryokans (3 and 4*). In fact, as this is traditional accommodation, people with the same reservation are grouped together in spacious rooms for up to 5 people.
  • 3-person room: If there are 3, 5 or more of you and you do not select the single supplement, a triple room will be allocated to you.
  • In the case of a group order (> 5 people), it is possible, depending on hotel availability, that not all members of the group will be accommodated in the same hotel. Nevertheless, we aim to keep you close. 
  • Names of the hotels : The names given on the site are for information only. In the event of unavailability, an establishment of equivalent standing will be scheduled. Hotels, corresponding to local standards, are given as an indication and may be changed on site for hotels of a similar category.
  • In the ryôkan, guests sleep on comfortable futons placed on the tatami mat. The room has a private sink and toilet. As is customary in Japanese ryôkan, the onsen bathroom is shared (not mixed) unless you take the "private bathroom in the room" option.
    OPTIONAL: Enjoy a private Japanese bathroom (traditional or modern onsen) in your room. This option is recommended for mixed couples, families, people who are modest or have visible tattoos. The option is only valid for the ryôkan in Nikko. The 4* ryôkan (see 4* option) have comfortable futons raised on either western beds in a traditional tatami room. The bathrooms and toilets of the 4* ryôkan are private.
