Adventure World has expanded its Asia product into the ‘Land of the Rising Sun‘ with its first itinerary called ‘Handpicked Japan’.


The new 13-day trip gives Adventure World guests the opportunity to tick Japan’s renowned culinary experiences, ancient culture and unique sights off the bucket list.

The new itinerary comes after latest figures revealed a 24 percent increase in Australian visitors to Japan during peak month December last year compared to the same month in 2013.

In January, around 48,583 Aussies visited the East Asia destination – up 30 percent year-on-year.

According to the tour operator’s General Manager, Neil Rodgers, the company is meeting growing demand for the destination with an itinerary featuring some of ‘the most extraordinary experiences’.


Experiences include a trip to the castle town of Kanazawa, which is famous for its samurai heritage as well as an opportunity to bathe in an outdoor onsen in Hakone.

There’s also a visit to Takayama, famous for its traditional gassho-zukuri farmhouses and a stay in traditional ryokan accommodation.

Guests will enjoy a day in the buzzing capital city Tokyo before heading to Mount Fuji and Japan’s former imperial capital, Kyoto.

“The diversity of experiences paired with increased accessibility from Australia has seen it evolve into a destination that travellers want to return to again and again.”

Neil Rodgers, Adventure World General Manager

“The country set a record for tourism figures last year with 13.4 million visitors in 2014 and already looks to be on track to set a new record in 2015.”
