Elite Traveler has selected the most exclusive VIP experiences that Tokyo and Japan have to offer.
Miyake Island – Dolphin Club
Located 112 miles south of Tokyo (about 45mins by plane and six hours by boat) Miyake Island is home to about 200 wild Indo-Pacific bottle nose dolphins. Trained staff at the Dolphin Club will show you how to scuba dive before you venture out to see these beautiful creatures in the wild. The dolphins are friendly, curious and playful, and are often happy to approach visitors. As well as dolphins you will be sure to see other marine life in the sparkling blue sea around this volcanic island.
ANNUALLY IN October
The Japanese Grand Prix is held at the Suzuka circuit, which was designed as a Honda test track in 1962 by John Hugenholtz. Suzuka is one of a few circuits in the world to have a figure-of-eight layout, with the back straight passing over the front section by means of an overpass. Suzuka enjoys a long history as the venue of the Japanese Grand Prix. Its traditional role as one of the last races of the season means numerous world championships have been battled out on this track. VIP options are available.
