Ultra-Deluxe small group tours are the ultimate way to visit Japan with hand-picked, top hotels and ryokans (traditional inns) to relax in. Select from a unique range of luxurious cultural experiences that are limited to smaller groups, which is why the maximum group size is 6 guests.

Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or a first-time visitor to Japan, we recommend “The Golden Route Japan” itinerary, our most popular tour. This tour gives you a taste of all that Japan has to offer, from unique locales to “must see” tourist attractions in Tokyo and Kyoto.

Our private guides and drivers will help you navigate through Tokyo’s cultural landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods, and diverse shopping districts. Explore world famous attractions like Tokyo Tower, the Imperial Palace, Asakusa, and Odaiba. Spend a day at Hakone and Mt. Fuji, ride a shinkansen bullet train, and stay at a ryokan (traditional Japanese inn). From there you can unwind in the hot springs (onsen) and dine on gourmet kaiseki cuisine.

Spend two days in the ancient city of Kyoto, where you will gain exclusive access to the city’s top gardens, temples, shrines, and specialty shops. You will also get the opportunity to experience a green tea ceremony and watch a kimono fashion show. In Nara, be inspired by the intricate architecture and towering monuments, including the Great Buddha statue. Here, you will understand why this city is considered the birthplace of Buddhism in Japan.

Our Golden Route Japan itineraries include cherry blossom viewing in the spring and fall foliage tours in the autumn. These tours are also available in reverse versions (travel from Osaka to Tokyo), which are convenient for those who wish to extend their stay in Tokyo after the tour ends. We plan our tours based on seasonal attractions with must-see sites in every tour. This includes visiting the Kyoto Aoi Festival in the spring or the Kyoto Gion Festival in the summer, if your tour dates coincide with the festivals’.
