This tour is an excellent way to discover the culture and landscape of Japan where you will get a chance to visit 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 explore Takachiho, a place of myths and legends. In Beppu, marvel at the Jigoku, "hell", of bubbling waters and geysers scattered across the town. Then, enjoy a scenic drive to Mt. Takasaki Monkey Park where you will get a chance to meet with some of the 1,500 wild Japanese monkeys up close. Kitsuki Samurai Districts will also be included in this Kyushu tour.

From Kyushu, the Shinkansen bullet train takes you to Hiroshima where you'll visit the Peace Memorial Museum and surrounding Peace Park. On Miyajima Island, you will have a chance to view the famed "floating" Torii Gate of Itsukushima Shrine. 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. It passes over six small islands in the Seto Inland Sea, to Shikoku Island. Take in the views of the Kurushima Kaikyo Bridges standing among hundreds of islands beautifully scattered over the Seto Inland Sea at the Kirosan Observatory.

In Shikoku Island, visit the open air museum of Shikoku Mura Village and see why Japanese gardens are famous in Takamatsu. Drive through the Seto-ohashi Bridge back to Honshu Island where you will visit the photogenic canal area of Kurashiki and the majestic castle at Himeji.

On this tour you will have a chance to savor the world famous Wagyu beef in Kobe, watch a Yokagura Dance Performance and stay one night at a traditional Japanese Onsen Ryokan. You will also have the opportunity to relax in the therapeutic waters of a natural spa bath at an onsen, enjoy the fine flavors of a traditional Japanese banquet dinner and take an evening stroll dressed in your yukata. Immersing yourself in Japanese culture while surrounded by the charm and picturesque architecture of exquisite wooden buildings, shoji sliding paper doors, tatami mat floors, and courtyard gardens is the essence of this tour.

This itinerary is perfect for those who want to see a little deeper into rural Japan. It is a great opportunity to see a Japan rarely seen or imagined by most visitors.
