Places to Visit
Japan’s capital Tokyo is one of the largest and most populous cities in the world. In this tour you will have a good balance of tours giving you in depth insight on Tokyo’s iconic sites, as well as free time to pursue the endless subcultures of the city, whether it be its cuisine, history, architecure, art, or popular culture. You’ll stay in a grand hotel in one of the cities most cental locations, offering nearly endless dining, cultural, and shopping opportunities.
The gorgeous resort area Hakone is one of the best places to see Mt. Fuji. Although you’ve surely seen Mt. Fuji in photos and pictures, seeing it in person for the first time (weather permitting!) is truly a stunning experience. We will also see views of the volcanic Owakudani Valley from a panoramic ropeway.
Remnants of this city’s tragic history can be viewed at the Peace Memorial Park, a must-visit for anyone traveling in the area, as well as the Atomic Bomb Dome, the only building that was left standing after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. No matter where you’re from, you are guaranteed to leave Hiroshima with a renewed understanding of the importance of world peace.
Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima [literally, “shrine island”] is perhaps the most famous shrine in Japan, known for its floating torii gate. Long a holy site and place of pilgrimage, the shrine complex connected by boardwalks over the sea is one of the most unique spots in Japan. You’ll be staying the night on the island in a deluxe hotel complete with dinner and hot spring baths.
No second candle to Tokyo, Osaka is a place to let loose and enjoy, full of bright lights and some of Japan’s best casual dining, offering a pleasant contrast to neighboring Kyoto. Warm people, rich culture, and opportunity for growth and change define Osaka, and we’ll get a taste for the city as the last destination of our tour.
Kyoto is the religious and cultural heart of Japan, and with thousands of temples, shrines, gardens, natural wonders, and cuisine the exemplify the pinnacle of Japanese aesthetics. Bustling, modern streetscapes are juxtaposed with serene temples and Zen gardens, and geisha still hurry along to evening appointments. You’ll get a taste of it all in our tour through the city’s highlights.
Nara was the capital of Japan from 710 to 794, and is home to some of the most ancient but grand suriving wooden structures in the world, whose scale would never suggest their great age. We’ll see one of Japan’s most iconic Buddha’s at Todai-ji Temple and the seemingly endless series of beautiful lanterns at the Kasuga Taisha Shrine, and also visit the deer that roam freely around the Nara Deer Park.
