Whether you're a seasoned traveler or a first-time visitor to Japan, we recommend "The Golden Route Japan", our most popular tour. This tour provides a sample of what Japan has to offer, from unique locales to "must see" tourist attractions in Tokyo and Kyoto.

Our Golden Route Japan itinerary loosely follows the Tokaido Road, the most traveled route during the Edo Period connecting Kyoto to Tokyo. Today, this route is referred to as the "Golden Route" and is popular among visitors as it features famous sites along the route including Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka. Travel in comfort on our private coach bus while an English- speaking guide and private driver help you navigate Japan's cultural landmarks, diverse shopping districts, and historic sites.

Explore the bustling city of Tokyo, visiting famous attractions such as Tokyo Tower and Asakusa Sensoji Temple. Learn how to make sushi with a professional sushi chef and savor your delicious creations. If the season is right, visit Ueno Park in Tokyo to see 1000s of cherry trees, or admire the autumn foliage while riding the Hakone Ropeway. Hakone is also famous for its hot springs and wonderful views of Mt. Fuji (if weather permits). Take an exhilarating bullet train ride before unwinding at your Japanese-style inn (Ryokan), where you can enjoy the natural bath waters of the hot springs.

Kyoto, once Japan's capital, offers a glimpse into the past with its historic buildings and rich history and culture. You will have exclusive access to the city's top gardens, temples, and shrines, and will enjoy a traditional green tea ceremony hosted by an apprentice geisha (maiko). Depending on the tour's dates, you may also experience the Aoi Festival or Gion Summer Festival in Kyoto which have been held for thousands of years. During Golden Route Cherry Blossom Tours, visit Maruyama Park in Kyoto, famous for its weeping cherry tree.

Whether you want to see the lush pink cherry blossoms in spring, the vibrant colors of autumn, or the festivals of summer, there is something to enjoy each season on our Golden Route Tours. This tour is also available in reverse versions (travel from Osaka to Tokyo), convenient for guests wanting to stay in Tokyo longer after the tour ends. For those wanting a glimpse of what Japan can offer, this tour is an excellent choice!
