Tour the Gardens of Japan to see some of the most peaceful, heavenly, and meticulous landscapes that have ever been cultivated. Centuries of landscaping philosophy and respect for nature give Japan's various gardens a deep and spiritual atmosphere, at once lovely, subtle, and poetic in every glimpse.

These itineraries have been paired with Art and Architecture sightseeing tours for guests looking to admire Japan's cultural masterpieces.

Walk in tranquil wonder as you tour Japan's gardens starting in Osaka and ending in Tokyo, passing through Himeji, Matsue, Naoshima Island, Bizen, Takamatsu, Kyoto, Nara, Mount Fuji, and Hakone. The parks and gardens that await your discovery include temple gardens in Kyoto and Nara, Kokoen garden near Himeji Castle, Adachi Museum and Garden, Isuien Garden, Yushien Garden, as well as some private gardens off the beaten path.
