With more families looking beyond the usual beach break and seeking more cultural immersion and adventures, InsideAsia Tours will be launching a new family page for June/July to help provide useful information for agents and to those clients looking for an adventurous family trip.

The page will bring together family focused itineraries from all of its destinations in Indochina, Japan and Burma, blog pieces written by families for other families and a competition in conjunction with fellow Bristol-based partners, Trunki. The page also offers fun, illustrated cultural guides and destination relevant activity sheets for kids.

As an example of tours, InsideJapan has released two new self-guided itineraries for adventurous families. The 14-night ‘Alpine Adventure: Family Driving Holiday’ costs £12,930 for a family of four and travels from Tokyo taking families through hot spring towns and impressive alpine passes whilst giving them a taste of Japanese ‘Omotenashi’ hospitality with stays at traditional ryokan, family run Minshiku guest houses and independent hotels. The adventure also includes experiences such as Taiko drumming classes, cycling tours and white water rafting.

Alternatively, the ten-night ‘Zen & Now Family Holiday’ costs from £4,650 for a family of four and is based in Tokyo and Kyoto. Accommodation is an experience in itself with a traditional Machiya townhouse offering a self-catering base in a Kyoto neighbourhood, allowing the family to be part of the local community. The trip allows for families to day trip to nearby Nara and its scared deer or to Himeji and the impressive samurai castle. All accommodation, experiences such as sushi making class and a fun ‘Tokyo Mystery Game’ and all transport including rides on the bullet train are included.
