This comprehensive tour is designed for people who want to see the undiscovered regions of Japan, as well as the most popular destinations in Japan.

This itinerary will travel to three main islands of Japan, which are Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu. You will visit popular destinations on Honshu Island, such as Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Hakone, Kyoto, Nara, Himeji, and Kurashiki. Travelers on this itinerary will also cross the Inland Sea to Shikoku Island, where you will drive through the scenic Shimanami Kaido highway before making your back to Honshu Island to visit Hiroshima. Then, you will take a bullet train to Kyushu to visit sites in Beppu, Takachiho, Kumamoto, Nagasaki, and end your tour in Fukuoka. (Reverse versions will begin in Fukuoka and end in Tokyo.)

Visitors on this tour will have the opportunity to experience an authentic green tea ceremony, enjoy a kimono fashion show, savor a gourmet kaiseki cuisine, watch a traditional Yokagura Dance Performance, unwind in hot springs (onsen), ride a shinkansen bullet train, and taste world-famous Wagyu beef.

The “Japan in Depth” itinerary consists of several variations of the tour to best suit your preferences. This tour includes dates in spring, summer, and autumn. There are also “reverse” versions and variations that include seeing cherry blossoms or a festival, for example. Additionally, some of these tours include versions that will also go to the Japanese Alps, as well as Koyasan.

Travelers that select a “Japan in Depth” itinerary with Japanese Alps will experience the rural, mountainous regions of Japan in addition to the destinations already listed. The Japanese Alps consists of four prefectures: Niigata, Toyoma, Nagano, and Gifu. You will spend an extra day touring through fascinating cities and attractions that surround some of Japan’s majestic peaks. This includes the charming town of Takayama, the original-standing Matsumoto Castle, and the historic Shirakawa-go village.

We also have a modified itinerary that features Koyasan if it suits your travel interests. Koyasan is a small, secluded temple town and is the center of Shingon Buddhism. Here, you will have the chance to stay overnight in a Buddhist monastery, where you will gain deeper insight into a monk’s lifestyle.

The “Japan in Depth” itinerary is perfect for those who would like a deeper understanding of a Japan that is rarely seen by the average visitor. Choose a “Japan in Depth” tour from among several versions offered based on seasonal festivities and interests. Experience both rural areas and popular attractions in one Japan trip.

We plan our tours based on seasonal attractions, with must see sites in every tour. Below are our Japan In Depth Tour itineraries with seasonal changes:
