There’s more to Japan than karaoke, manga and harajuku girls. A lot more.

Travel to Japan and you’ll soon see that it’s home to outlandish game shows, an array of vending machines, old-school sake breweries, and a population of faultlessly considerate people.

Oh… and there’s a whole load of ancient temples, castles and shrines, too.

Join a Geckos tour with a small group of 18-29 year olds and ride through the Japanese countryside at speed aboard a bullet train, visit sumo stables in Tokyo, see Geishas in Kyoto, sip sake in Kanazawa, and experience the legendary Osaka eating scene.

Touring in Japan is guaranteed to produce more mind-blowing moments per minute than almost anywhere else in the world. From riding the ruthlessly efficient subway system to using musical public toilets, a trip to Japan is worth it for the shock value alone.

And the sushi. All of the sushi.
