Japan holidays and flights to Japan

Japan is something else. A country of geisha, emperors and elegant art – it’s like nowhere you’ve been before. The cuisine is considered one of the best in the world and the culture is unique. High-tech inventions pour out of its cities, from vending machines that dispense hot items to amazing humanoid robotics. Get close to the cutting edge and the culturally sublime: book flights to Japan.

British Airways flies direct to Tokyo, and our partnerships with Finnair, Iberia and Japanese Airlines allow you to fly to several Japanese cities with just one stop. Japan is made up of four mountainous main islands and thousands of smaller ones with climates ranging from the ski-able to the sub-tropical. The famous Shinkansen (bullet train) sweeps you to Kyoto and Osaka, and the islands are well-connected. Snow-capped Mount Fiji is a sight to behold, and on the farthest southern outpost of Okinawa you’ll find lovely beaches. First-time visitors spend time on Honshu, in the cities of Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka or Hiroshima. Each city is a motherboard of high rises: surging with people, great shopping and food – but even in the cities you can find beautiful zen gardens, shrines and water gardens – and Kyoto, the former imperial capital, is replete with historic sights. Book your Japan holiday now.

Discover Japan

Japan city breaks

The sprawling metropolis of Tokyo has no limit of things to do. To see the nation at its liveliest, visit nearby Yokohama, where its Chinatown is bustling. Kyoto, with its delicate temples and geisha district of Gion, is the place to see old Japan. Hiroshima abounds with World War II history. And for some of the best food and a down-to-earth vibe, head to port city Osaka.

Things to do in Japan

Experience the bubbling natural hot springs, like those in the dramatic coastal Izu Peninsula. From Hiroshima, take a ferry to the sacred island of Miyajima - you can see the enormous red Otorii gate towering out of the water as you approach. Get away from it all in the rolling hills, green meadows and lakes of northern Tohoku's Towada-Hachimantai National Park.
