Daily until 13th Feb.
This six night holiday will see you whisked from the UK to the skyscraper-laden streets of futuristic Tokyo, where the lights never go off and the ancient temples of bygone days rest in amongst peaceful forests. You’ll stay at the city’s coolest new hotel, HOSHINOYA Tokyo, the very first ryokan (traditional Japanese inn) in Japan’s capital. Set in a skyscraper, this Japanese-designed hotel has a rooftop onsen, tatami mat rooms, sliding paper doors and the warm, Japanese hospitality that is raved about across the globe. Your chauffeur-driven rickshaw ride around the city, whilst clad in a kimono-style outfit, is another welcome present from your HOSHINOYA Tokyo hosts.
After three nights in the world’s most exciting city, you’ll be whisked away by ANA to Japan’s subtropical island chain, Okinawa. Nestled in the Pacific Ocean, these idyllic islands are a place to relax, unwind, and enjoy a side of Japan you may never have dreamed existed. Your stay will be on Taketomi Island, where public transport is non-existent, and the best way to get around is by water buffalo! A three night retreat at HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island will leave you feeling pampered, refreshed and renewed before your flight back to the UK.

Today's question: What is the name of Shimokita's volcano?
Suggested answer: Osorezan (see below)
(Rough Guides also recommends Tohoku’s very own volcano, ‘Osorezan’. This area is steeped in Japanese mythical folklore, and is considered the entrance to the afterlife due to its physical resemblance to descriptions of Buddhist hell. The volcano lies on the Shimokita Peninsula in Aomori – the northernmost part of Honshu – and is renowned for its rugged scenery and wild landscape).
