In September, northern Japan starts to leave behind the heat of summer. All nature in the Tohoku region grows full and splendidly green, from the mountainside forests to the acres of rice paddies. This makes early autumn the perfect time for visitors to enjoy the Charms of Tohoku. Passengers on this itinerary will be treated to the top nature spots and most popular locations Tohoku offers, including visits to Aomori, Inakadate, Hirosaki, Sakata, Mount Haguro, Matsushima, Nikko, and more.

The start of the tour takes the group straight up to Aomori to Nebuta Warasse, a museum that immerses guests in the atmosphere of the Nebuta Festival. Then it's into the the countryside of Inakadate, where farmers have turned their rice paddies into works of art, with portraits of famous places, people, and other artworks made within the rice field using different types of rice plants. In Hirosaki you will see one of Tohoku's most impressive castles, followed by the Fujita Memorial Garden - a gorgeous landscape garden with a Western house and tearoom. Then, in Sakata, we get a taste of old Kyoto Culture at Somaro with lunch and entertainment by the Sakata Maiko (apprentice geisha).

A rare spiritual experience awaits at Mount Haguro, where the Yamabushi monks - practictioners of the Shugendo folk religion, search out peace in mind and body. Live for a day like a Yamabushi monk, which includes wearing their traditional attire, savoring a healthy vegetarian lunch of monks' food, and hiking up the mountain path, past the famed Five-storied Pagoda to Haguro-san Shrine. Even more wonderful nature scenes await in the second half of the tour, with an ascent up the 1,000 stairs of Yamadera to Risshakuji Temple, a culturally stimulating boat ride down the Mogami River as you listen to the songs of the boatmen, and a liesurely cruise around the 200 small pine- topped islands of spectacular Matsushima Bay - considered one of Japan's most beautiful nature scenes. The final stop of the tour is in Nikko - a spiritual heart of the region, home of Toshogu Shrine and resting place of the spirit of the Tokugawa shogun.
