The tour starts in Tokyo and travels to Hiroshima, Naoshima Island, Kyoto and Osaka before flying to Beijing in China. This country is also absolutely fascinating with significant growth in the past decade with contemporary architecture on a huge scale contrasted with a rural agrarian background and major heritage experiences. You will see the Great Wall near Beijing, the ‘Venice of the East’ in Suzhou and both contemporary buildings and exceptional ‘thirties’ buildings in the exciting and vibrant city of Shanghai.
