Ultra-Deluxe small group tours are the ultimate way to visit Japan with hand-picked, top hotels and ryokans (traditional inns) to relax in.

This tour is essentially "The Golden Triangle of Japan" itinerary, plus highlights of the Shikoku Island and Chugoku regions, as well as some changes that you can only experience in the winter. This tour caters to a wide variety of interests from culture, architecture, nature, Onsen spa baths, and traditional Japanese cuisine to 21st century sights.

Our private guides and drivers will help you navigate 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 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.

On our winter itinerary, you will also visit Matsumoto, and the famous snow monkeys at Jigokudani Nature Park. There you'll stay at a ryokan (traditional inn), where you can unwind in the hot springs (onsen) and dine on gourmet kaiseki cuisine. Then, head towards Takayama, located amongst the Japanese Alps. Due to their remote location, these places are beautifully preserved and developed their own culture that is unique from the rest of Japan. Visit the charming village of Shirakawa-go and understand what gassho-zukuri architectural style is. You'll also have a chance to visit a city that is beautiful, but often overlooked by Western tourists, the city of Kanazawa. Here, you'll visit the Kenrokuen Garden (one of Japan's top three gardens) and see what six attributes make a perfect landscape.

You will 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'll also get the opportunity to experience a green tea ceremony and watch a kimono fashion show. At Nara, 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. From Nara, proceed to Osaka and have a chance to see why Osaka is called the "night life city".

Visit the majestic castle in Himeji 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.

In the Shikoku Island, you will visit the Ritsurin Garden in Takamatsu, climb the 1,368 stone steps to the Kotohira-gu Shrine, enjoy a relaxing boat ride, and take in the panoramic views of the Oboke Gorge. Our group will also have the chance to savor the world-famous Wagyu beef in Kobe. This itinerary is perfect for those who want to visit the well known regions of Japan.
