TTC: Strong demand for Japan

Trafalgar, Contiki and Luxury Gold have seen increased demand from New Zealanders looking to travel to Japan following further relaxation of rules and travel restrictions there.

Contiki’s itineraries range from a week-long adventure visiting the country’s largest cities on a whirlwind journey with the Japan In A Week tour to the Japan Unrivalled tour, a 13-day itinerary visiting Tokyo, Hiroshima, Osaka and Kyoto, along with a stay in a traditional Buddhist guesthouse.

Another itinerary offers Japan’s wintertime activities – the Japan Winter Wonder  includes a ski trip to Hakuba Ski Resort.

Trafalgar is offering two options for 2023. The Splendours of Japan itinerary is a nine-day trip visiting Tokyo and Kyoto, plus smaller villages where guests can experience traditional handicraft making. The Classic Japan trip visits four different cities across 10 days, several UNESCO-listed shrines and temples and a tea plantation.

Luxury Gold is offering one luxury-category trip, Majestic Japan. The 11-day trip visits Osaka, Hiroshima, Tokyo, Kyoto, Sendai, Oirase Gorge and more. Travellers can meet a survivor of the Hiroshima bombing, take part in a sake tasting with a master brewer, explore Osaka Castle and more.

‘Our guests are eager to get back to Japan. We’ve seen a rush to book, with several of our itineraries selling quickly for 2022 and 2023,’  says Louise Levesque, general manager of TTCNZ.
