In the following sentence:
If I won a holiday anywhere in the world, I would go to Japan.
Does 'holiday' simply means 'holiday', or does it mean a 'trip' or 'journey' or something else?
Thanks in advance.

Yes it means a trip to a place where you can spend your free time (a holiday):
Here is a real example:
In American and British English, 'holiday' has the meaning "a day of festivity or recreation when no work is done": Christmas is a public holiday in many countries, and in British English it can also be used (singular 'holiday' or plural 'holidays') to mean the same as the American "vacation" - "an extended period of leisure and recreation, especially one spent away from home or in travelling": I had a holiday in China last year.
