We'll take a walk down Nakamise Street (one of the oldest shopping streets in Japan that dates back to the 1500's) to pick up treasures for family and friends back home, brave the busiest street crossing in the world (Shibuya), then round things off at the epicentre of youth culture & fashion, Harajuku.

Be warned though, these hot springs are not for the shy (meaning total nakedness), but are the perfect way to unwind after a day of exploring the sights & sounds of the city.

icon Day 9: Tokyo

Location: Tokyo

Accommodation: Shinagawa Prince Hotel (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast

Today's our last day in Tokyo, and our last day on tour, so let's make it one to remember. With a free day to explore Japan your way, we have a sneaking suspicion Harajuku may be calling you back - it kind of has that affect on people.

Accommodation: Hakuba Royal Hotel (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast

We may be parting ways with some of the group today but for those heading to the slopes, there's so much more to look forward to.

Mountain gliding is also available here and trust us, it is INSANE. Later and after a full day on the powder, why not relax tired bodies in a steamy onsen, then refuel on tasty katsu curry.
