Springtime in Japan showcases an array of pale pink cherry blossoms, colorful gardens, and lush green foliage. This tour covers popular "must see" attractions in Tokyo and Kyoto, plus highlights in the Shikoku and Chugoku regions (Hiroshima & Miyajima). This itinerary caters to a wide variety of interests from culture, architecture, nature, onsen spa baths, 21st century sights, to traditional Japanese cuisine.

This is the reverse itinerary that starts from Osaka. You'll visit the famous Himeji Castle and the canal town of Kurashiki. In Hiroshima, visit the Peace Memorial Museum and Park, then head on to Miyajima to view the famed vermilion Torii Gate of Itsukushima Shrine. At high tide, the gates look like they're floating on the sea. Then, drive through the Shimanami Kaido, a 60 kilometer long toll road that connects Japan's main island of Honshu to the island of Shikoku, passing over six small islands in the Seto Inland Sea. Overlook views of the Kurushima Kaikyo Bridges from the Kirosan Observatory, along with hundreds of small islands beautifully scattered over the sea.

On Shikoku Island, you will visit the Ritsurin Garden in Takamatsu, climb the 1,368 stone steps to the Konpirasan, enjoy a relaxing boat ride, and take in the panoramic views of the Oboke Gorge. On this tour you will also have a chance to savor the world famous Wagyu beef in Kobe.

We'll then take you to visit Nara, where you'll 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 historical city of Kyoto, the former capital of Japan. The gardens and temples you will visit in Kyoto have been chosen because for their reputation as the "best places to view cherry blossoms." Experience a Japanese green tea ceremony, meet a maiko (apprentice geisha), and watch a kimono fashion show. Visit Arashiyama, located on the outskirts of Kyoto, which is renowned for its bamboo forest and traditional Zen landscape garden at Tenryuji Temple.

Visit Miho Museum, recognized for its architecture that encompasses the surrounding scenery while exhibiting ancient artifacts. There is also a tunnel that leads from the museum to a road lined with hundreds of cherry blossom trees. Designed by I. M. Pei, the museum has been listed as one of the "1000 Places To See Before You Die". Then proceed to Hikone Castle, an attractive hanami (flower- viewing) spot during the cherry blossom season. Hikone Castle is one of the few remaining original castles in Japan, meaning it survived the post feudal era without suffering from severe destruction or remodeling. It is also considered one of the four most beautiful castles in Japan. Visit the Genkyuen Garden, a beautiful Japanese landscape garden located on the castle grounds. Take a Shinkansen (bullet train) ride for experience before transfering 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 Mt. Fuji. Enjoy a guided tour through Tokyo's cultural landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods, and diverse shopping districts. Learn how to make your own sushi with a professional sushi chef and savor your delicious creations. Explore attractions like the bustling streets of Shibuya, Asakusa district with an atmosphere of old Tokyo, Japan's largest and busiest fish market, the historical Imperial Palace, and the record-breaking Tokyo Tower.
