Join this 16-day summer tour through the enchanting summer flowers of Hokkaido to the top sightseeing destinations of the Japan mainland, plus the unique Expo 2025 Osaka.

This 16-day itinerary combines our Charms of Hokkaido: Summer Flowers & Nature Tour with our highly popular Golden Route Japan Summer itinerary, with an additional day in Osaka for the Expo 2025 Osaka Kansai.

Expo 2025 Osaka is a global event in Japan showcasing future technologies, cultural exhibits, and sustainability solutions. The event features national pavilions, an innovation zone, and artistic installations. Visitors can explore themes like future living, sustainability, and cultural exchange while enjoying entertainment and international cuisine. The Expo aims to foster collaboration and envision a better future.

Join the tour of a lifetime encompassing both Hokkaido and Honshu for an immersion into the incredible nature and unique culture of Japan!

The tour begins in Sapporo where you will discover the landmarks and cultural delights of Hokkaido’s capital city. From there we take you through a stop in the historic port city of Otaru to the pastoral fields of Furano and Biei, where bright fields of locally famous lavenders and various other flowers cover the landscape like a multicolored blanket. From there, the tour proceeds to Asahikawa, where our guests are treated to a day in the country as they wander tall fields picking and tasting Hokkaido sweet corn, tour a local sake brewery, and finish a perfect day with a stroll among millions of cheerful sunflowers in Hokuryu Town. The ruggedly charming landscape of Hokkaido awaits in some of its most famous nature scenes, as you see spectacular waterfalls in Sounkyo, take a bear-watching nature cruise in Shiretoko, and observe the graceful Tancho “red-crowned” crane in Kushiro.

Then you hop on a plane to Osaka to see the top destinations on Honshu. Start with a tour of magnificent Osaka Castle – built by the legendary Japanese warlord Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Continue with sightseeing Kyoto and Nara’s splendid UNESCO World Heritage temples and shrines. While there, take tea in a traditional ceremony hosted by an apprentice geisha, and stroll the Gion Geisha District. We stop in Koka to see the Miho Museum’s extensive multi-cultural artifact collection, and feel like a ninja while spying out the Ninja Mansion. On the way to Tokyo, we make our way through Hakone where, weather permitting, you will get a breathtaking view of Mount Fuji. We will also take time to ride the Hakone ropeway to the boiling pools of Owakudani. Finally, take a day of sightseeing in Japan’s capital of Tokyo, explore attractions like the bustling streets of Shibuya, Asakusa district with an atmosphere of old Tokyo, Japan's largest and busiest fish market, drive by the historical Imperial Palace, and take in the view from the record-breaking Tokyo Skytree’s main observation deck.
