Top pick 7-day independent itineraries
Travelling in Japan independently is actually relatively easy if you know where you want to go, however, the next stage is working out how to get around. The 7 day JR Rail Pass is ideal. It allows you to visit multiple destinations and experience multiple regions.
To make the most of your time, it’s suggested to fly into one city and out of another, and this way there is no need for you to back-track.
Another excellent addition to your itinerary should be a tour with a local. These short half or day tours offer a unique experience with an English speaking guide. The guide will take you to places you would not generally visit.
Finally, include some of the more popular attractions, such as the Toyota Museum, which highlights the robotics used in the car industry.
