A Sporting Holiday to Japan with Bamboo Travel
By: Bamboo Travel
Whether you want to participate or spectate, Bamboo Travel has a number of suggestions to whet the appetite!
If you think you might be the next Jason or Laura Kenny, then why not get on your bike in the Japanese Alps in the north of the country around the towns of Takayama and Hida? Bamboo have teamed up with a great local company who run a range of guided cycling tours there (full day and half day). They take in rural scenery, natural hot springs, local temples, farming villages and lots more. The excursion can be enjoyed on the 16-day In search of Ancient Japan trip. Other highlights include the famous gardens in Kanazawa, staying in the traditional village of Shirakawago and walking on the ancient Nakasendo Highway. From £3595 pp.
The Japanese are baseball mad and the crowds are among the most enthusiastic you will witness at any event, anywhere, and even if you have no interest in baseball, attending a game can be a very fun and memorable experience. Bamboo Travel can arrange tickets for games in Tokyo, Osaka and Hiroshima. A good option for baseball matches is the 13-day Classic Japan (https://www.bambootravel.co.uk/
Sumo Wrestling might not be an Olympic sport, but we all know who would win the gold medal! This most traditional of sports has stood the test of time and is more popular now than at any time in history. There are six annual tournaments which each draw enormous crowds. The tournaments mostly take place in Tokyo and Osaka and the experts at Bamboo will be able to advise you if there is one going on during your visit to Japan and arrange tickets. One trip that could tie in with a sumo match is the two-week Family Adventure in Japan (https://www.bambootravel.co.uk/
