Our Classic Japan itineraries offer travelers more time to enjoy the country’s highlights and must-see sites. Explore popular attractions in renowned cities, as well as Japan’s rural, yet charming landscapes. We offer various itineraries according to seasonal attractions, so you can enjoy “Classic Japan” at different times of the year.

Begin your tour in Nikko, where you will travel to one of Japan’s most beautiful waterfalls and also witness a Shinto ceremony with a Japanese priest or priestess (miko). Visit Tokyo and experience the heart of Japan while visiting world-famous attractions and historical landmarks. Then, head to Hakone for a scenic interlude, where you will take a Lake Ashi Cruise and ride the Komagatake Ropeway.

Stop by Japan’s most iconic mountain, Mt. Fuji, and travel through picturesque scenery to the remote Japanese Alps. Here, you will visit the famous Matsumoto Castle in Matsumoto, the Old Town of Takayama, and the UNESCO-designated villages of Shirakawa-go. These areas hold a unique and traditional atmosphere with their beautifully preserved buildings and secluded location.

Spend three nights in Kyoto, the former capital of Japan and home to priceless structures. Here, you will tour a world-famous shrine, awe-inspiring temples, a historic castle, and more. Experience exclusive activities for further insight into Japan’s rich culture and history. Our travel group will have a chance to learn the art of origami, calligraphy, and ikebana in a wooden townhouse. Wear a kimono while exploring the city, practice Zen meditation in a temple, participate in a traditional green tea ceremony, and enjoy Kyoto cuisine while accompanied by an apprentice geisha (maiko).

Continue to the city of Nara for its world-renowned Todaiji Temple and meet some of the freely-roaming Sika deer at Nara Park. Then, head to Osaka, where you will learn how to make sushi with a professional sushi chef, as well as take a music lesson on how to play taiko (festival drums). Take a bullet train to Hiroshima, where you will visit the scenic Miyajima Island before touring the Peace Memorial Park.

Spend time in Kurashiki at its nostalgic canal area, a quaint district with former storehouses converted into shops and cafes. Continue to Himeji for its elegant White Heron Castle (Himeji Castle), a national treasure and designated World Heritage site. Finally, visit Kobe to try the city’s famous Kobe beef, a prized delicacy that will be cooked teppanyaki style.

Interested in this tour package? We offer various departure dates in spring, summer, and autumn with slight variations according to the season.
