Join our Beyond Tokyo Summer Tour and explore Nikko, Karuizawa, Yudanaka, and other must-see regions outside Tokyo and its immediate area.

Go Beyond Tokyo on an exciting Summer Tour with All Japan Tours! An ideal itinerary for returning travelers to Japan, our Beyond Tokyo series takes you to destinations outside this most touristed of cities, offering the chance for an authentic countryside experience. The tour includes must-see destinations at Nikko, Takasaki, Matsumoto, and Karuizawa, and features the delightful snow monkeys of Yudanaka.

Begin your tour heading out from Tokyo to the sacred city of Nikko, home to palatial Toshogu Shrine and nearby Rinnoji Temple (including its Treasure Hall and Shoyoen Garden), which are protected as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Take in the picturesque beauties of Lake Chuzenji and Kegon Falls before we travel to the mountain resort town of Karuizawa via Takasaki. In Takasaki, we visit Shorinzan Daruma Temple, where you can try your hand at painting a Daruma Doll. In Karuizawa, admire the magnificent Memorial Stone Church and the exhibits at the Karuizawa Museum of Contemporary Art. Then we depart to Yudanaka, to the charming hot springs at Jigokudani, where we spy on the groups of Snow Monkeys as they enjoy their mid- morning bath. Before returning to Tokyo via high-speed express train, we stop at Matsumoto to behold the imposing Matsumoto Castle - one of Japan's 12 original castles, and also called Crow Castle for its jet black exterior.

Take a trip Beyond Tokyo to explore the charming delights of the Nikko, Takasaki, Karuizawa, and Yudanaka regions in summer. Transportation for the tour is facilitated by our comfortable and convenient private coaches, and you will be accompanied by a friendly, professional English-speaking guide. Please feel free to browse our detailed itinerary below for more information.
