Why We Love This Deal

Same but different. At first glance, Taiwan and Japan are vastly different but in reality, they share a connected history and plenty of similarities. Yet, each offers two entirely different cultural and culinary experiences. We recommend you explore these two countries side by side to truly appreciate the subtle similarities. You can do just that with this unique 10-day flight-inclusive tour from Asia Vacation Group. 

Your holiday starts with a two-night stay in Taipei, where you'll enjoy a full day of sightseeing before you catch a one-way flight to iconic Tokyo. You'll take in breathtaking views of Mt Fuji from Oishi Park on the shores of Lake Kawaguchi, meet Japan's native Sika Deer in Nara and enjoy a walking tour through the famous Dōtonbori area of Osaka – known as 'Japan's Kitchen' due to its incredible culinary offerings. You'll also visit the Ninja Museum of Igaryu, the iconic 17th-century Nagoya Castle and wander through Nakamise, Tokyo's famous shopping street filled with a colourful mix of traditional crafts, souvenirs and sensational food stalls. 

We've searched and cannot find anything similar in the market right now. Starting at $3699 per person, Travelzoo members enjoy exclusive savings of up to $500 off Asia Vacation Group's usual prices for this tour.
