Take an exclusive 5-day trip Beyond Tokyo to experience the blooming of Japan's earliest cherry blossoms at the Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival and a trip to see the adorable Snow Monkeys!

Let AJT take you outside the big city of Tokyo and out into the countryside, for a more native Japan experience. This five-day tour takes you down the Izu Peninsula as far south as Kawazu - home of the Kawazu cherry tree, then winding up as far north as Yudanaka, in the Nagano region. On the way, we planned stops in Lake Kawaguchi, Matsumoto, the small town of Obuse, and Nagano City, for a charming cultural experience.

Beyond the borders of Tokyo, there is an abundance of enchanting scenes to enjoy and cultural treasures to discover. One of this tour's highlights is found in the coastal town of Kawazu, known across Japan for the Kawazu-zakura - mainland Japan's earliest blooming cherry trees. Every year, the town hold the Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival to celebrate the arrival of the bright pink blooms, with annual activities and cherry-flavored festival food. While in the area, we'll stop by Nanadaru Falls - the seven poetic waterfalls of the Izu Peninsula Geopark. We will venture into the breathtaking region around Mount Fuji for a ride on the Kachi Kachi Ropeway and enchanting views of the mountains and valleys below, then go to admire the colorful silk-dyeing techniques of Itchiku Kubota at a museum near Lake Kawaguchi.

Continuing northwest into Nagano Prefecture, we will stop in Matsumoto for a visit to the enduring Matsumoto "Black Crow" Castle - one of Japan's twelve original castles, before heading up to Yudanaka to see the famous Japanese snow monkeys, bathing in the Jigokudani "Hell Valley" hot springs. Watching these curious creatures wash and groom each other is a rare and interesting sight! While in the area, we visit the town of Obuse for the Hokusai museum, where you'll discover the museum of renowned artist Hokusai, then go to Nagano to explore Zenkoji Temple, the oldest Buddhist temple in the city.
