This 15-day itinerary combines our Charms of Hokkaido: Autumn Leaves and Salmon Run Tour with our very popular Golden Route Japan Autumn Tour. Join this tour to immerse yourself in the wonderful nature and wildlife of a Hokkaido bright with fall colors, followed by an introduction to the most popular destinations in Honshu in an unforgettable autumn tour!

Start with a trip from Chitose to Shiraoi to watch the annual fall salmon run. Every year, the salmon of Hokkaido swim upstream many rivers of Hokkaido, and we take you off the beaten track to the Uyuro River to observe this wonder of the natural world. You can also see the entire life cycle of Japan’s salmon at the Salmon Hometown Chitose Aquarium. Witness Hokkaido’s most enchanting season in Sounkyo as you view two spectacular waterfalls, then enjoy a nature cruise around the Shiretoko Peninsula, bursting with fall colors! Observe some of the local wildlife of Hokkaido, including the Ezo red fox at the Kitakitsune Farm in Kitami and the Tancho “red-crowned” crane at the Akan International Crane Center in Kushiro.

Continue your tour with a flight to Osaka, where your group will begin their exploration of mainland Japan. Beginning with Nara, where you will be inspired by the intricate architecture and towering monuments, including the Great Buddha statue, and you'll understand why this city is considered the birthplace of Buddhism in Japan. Spend two days in the ancient city of Kyoto, where you will have exclusive access to the city’s gardens, temples, shrine, castle and specialty shops. On our Autumn itinerary, we will also visit Arashiyama for its famous Togetsu Bridge, bamboo groves, and Tenryuji Temple where you can have a glimpse of traditional Zen landscape garden design. You will also have the opportunity to observe a kimono fashion show and enjoy a green tea ceremony with an apprentice geisha (maiko). Take a day in Koka to uncover the multicultural artifact collection at the Miho Museum. On the way to Tokyo, we will take the Hakone Ropeway to see the boiling pools of Owakudani and, weather permitting, enjoy breathtaking views of Mount Fuji. Finally, enjoy a sightseeing tour of all of Tokyo’s most top sightseeing spots, including Tokyo Tower, Asakusa Temple, and the Imperial Palace.
