Visit the famous snow monkeys in the Japan Alps north of Tokyo, before traversing the panoramic natural vistas and  beautiful icy seaboard of Eastern Hokkaido on this tour. The stay in the Japan Alps includes a traditional Japanese ‘ryokan’ and sumptuous Kaiseki multi-course dinner, which is great to come back to after watching the monkeys bathing in the hot springs. Double back to Tokyo and fly two hours north to Kushiro on Hokkaido, famous for its epic wetlands. Visit the red crane sanctuary near Lake Akan to see these majestic birds before continuing eastwards to Nemuro and Rausu on the remote icy Shiretoko Peninsula with opportunities for birdwatching and ice floe cruising. Finally, Fly back to busy and bustling city of Tokyo to finish the tour.
