This tour is an excellent way to discover the culture and landscape of Japan, with visits to national parks, gardens and "must see" sights of Southern Japan.

Start your trip in the rarely visited island of Kyushu. Beginning in Nagasaki, visit the Nagasaki Peace Park that holds the memorial for the victims of the second bomb that hit the land. A statue of a man pointing up and holding his other arm out is symbolic of the Nagasaki Peace Park. Our next site is Dejima, an area with over 400 years of history in Dutch trade. It features historical warehouses and residences, providing insight into the former Dutch Trade Post and how they lived during Japan's two centuries of isolation. Then, visit the Glover Gardens, an open air museum where we can see a fine collection of historic mansions of former Western residents of Nagasaki. Continue to the Oura Catholic Church, the oldest standing Christian church in Japan. It was also the first Western building in Japan to be designated as a national treasure.

We will also stay overnight at Mt. Unzen. Here you can wander along forest trails through the geothermal area of bubbling mud pools and sulfur encrusted steaming fumaroles. We will also explore Takachiho, a place of myths and legends. In Beppu, view the Jigoku "hell" pools of bubbling waters and geysers scattered across the town. Then enjoy a scenic drive to Mt. Takasaki Monkey Park. Usa Jingu Shrine will also be included in Kyushu tour.

Stop by Kosanji Temple and Kirosan Observatory, views of the Kurushima Kaikyo Bridges standing among hundreds of islands beautifully scattered over the Seto Inland Sea. The modern observation deck is cleverly designed and built halfway into the ground of the hillside so as not to spoil the natural surroundings.

In Shikoku Island, visit the open air museum of Shikoku Mura Village and see why Japanese gardens are famous in Takamatsu. On this tour you will also have a chance to watch Awa Odori Folk Dance performance before proceed to Honshu Island by a short ferry crossing. On Honshu Island, we will stay in a monastery on Mt. Koya. Mt Koya is registered as the world heritage titled " Sacred Site and Pilgrimage Route in the Kii Mountain Range".
