This tour is the combination of our current "Charms of Hokkaido Tour: Summer Flowers in Hokkaido" and "The Golden Route Japan Tour Summer (Reverse)" . You can experience the "must see" tourist attractions in Tokyo and Kyoto, as wells as the Summer Flowers in Hokkaido when joining this tour.

Summer is the best season to visit Hokkaido. It’s the prefecture with the mildest climate in summer. It’s not as hot and humid during the day, and it cools down ever so nicely during the evening making each night all the more enjoyable. Furthermore, Hokkaido offers beautiful nature and flower fields which are best explored during the summer time.

Lavender has been cultivated in Hokkaido for more than half a century. When the arrival of lower priced, imported lavender led to a decrease in demand for Hokkaido's lavender in the 1960s and 70s, the local lavender's main function shifted from agricultural product to tourist attraction. Nowadays, Hokkaido's lavender fields attract large numbers of visitors to the region every summer. The majority of lavenders start blooming in late June and reach its peak from around mid July to early August. Another unforgettable view of Hokkaido’s summer is the vivid panorama of yellow sunflower fields. Many other flowers make Hokkkaido an attractive destination outside of the lavender season, as well. The main season for flower viewing takes place between June and September. Flowers include rape blossoms, poppies and lupins from June, lilies from July and sunflowers, salvias and cosmos from August and September.

We will visit Furano, Biei, Sounkyo, Abashiri, Shiretoko, Kushiro, Biratori, Noboribetsu, Lake Toya, Otaru and Sapporo. After travelling from Hokkaido to Honshu Island by domestic flight, we will continue to Osaka for it's Osaka Castle. We will then take you visit 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, shrines, and specialty shops. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy a green tea ceremony with an apprentice geisha (maiko).

Visit Miho Museum, a stunning architecture that accentuates the surrounding nature while exhibiting a variety of items from different ancient civilizations. The museum has been listed as one of the "1000 Places To See Before You Die". From there, visit Koka Ninja Mansion. This mansion used to be resided in by ninja, equipped with many ingenious traps and devices, designed to prevent intruders and to provide a means of escape in times of need. Then, experience riding one of Japan's Shinkansen bullet trains before transferring to Hamanako Kanzanji Onsen. There, you'll stay at an onsen hotel (Japanese style room), where you can unwind in the hot springs (onsen) and dine on gourmet kaiseki cuisine.

Spend a day at Hakone and the world famous Mt. Fuji. Then, enjoy comprehensive touring in Tokyo. Explore Tokyo's cultural landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods, and diverse shopping districts on a private guided tour.
