The tour begins in Japan’s former capital, Kyoto. Let this ancient city fascinate you with its aesthetically pleasing atmosphere of Edo Japan with its traditional narrow streets. Appreciate Kurashiki’s historical area and experience a tatami-mat workshop as well as traditional “shamisen” local folk music. We will travel by train along the Japan Sea Coast to Yunotsu, one of the oldest spring towns in Japan as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with the Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine. Enjoy soaking and refreshing yourself in the mineral water before heading off towards Tsuwano, a delightful town known as the “Little Kyoto of San’in” with its beautifully scenic streets lined with Edo Period buildings and Koi carp ponds. The journey continues onto the former castle town of Hagi, known for its pottery, and then onto Hiroshima. After visiting the beautiful city of Hiroshima, the journey will take us to the famous Miyajima Island just nearby as well as a secret paradise on the Seto Inland Sea, Sensui-jima Island. Lastly, we will arrive in the lively city of Osaka, where the neon lights and bustling crowds will welcome you back to the modern side of Japan.
