The delicate cherry blossom is the herald of springtime in Japan, and is as inseperable with the nation's classical culture as sushi or samurai. Treasured for its brief blooming period as much as innate beauty, the sakura trees spread their clouds of pastel pink from late march to early April over Japan's parks, gardens, and other national beauty spots.

The delicate cherry blossom is the herald of springtime in Japan, and is as inseperable with the nation's classical culture as sushi or samurai. Treasured for its brief blooming period as much as innate beauty, the sakura trees spread their clouds of pastel pink from late march to early April over Japan's parks, gardens, and other national beauty spots.

Start in Tokyo, where you can experience an authentic Shinto ceremony at Meiji Shrine officiated by a local priest or miko (priestess). Explore Japan's largest and busiest fish market, learn how to make your own sushi with a professional sushi chef and savor your delicious creations. Enjoy a stroll under the bright pink cherry blossoms in Ueno Park - one of Tokyo's most popular blossom-viewing areas. Then gaze in wonder at the giant lantern hanging under Kaminarimon Gate at Sensoji Temple in Asakusa.

From there you will explore the region around Hakone, with tour of the Open Air Museum's thought-provoking sculptures, followed by a pirate cruise on picturesque Lake Ashi surrounded by verdant forests covering the rocky hills. Then head to Lake Kawaguchi where you will discover the silk art of Itchiku Kobota and witness his unfinished masterpiece. Also near the lake is Oishi Park, where, weather permitting, you will find breathtaking views of Mount Fuji above the lake, along with a walk of seasonal flowers and trees.

Go to Matsumoto to view the Matsumoto "Black Crow" Castle, and take a walk through the classical atmosphere of Takayama Old Town. Then discover the charming World Heritage Village of Shirakawa-go, noted for its gassho- zukuri architecture. Take a drive down to Kanazawa to relax in Kenrokuen - on of Japan's top gardens, tour the Nagamachi Samurai District, and then take the afternoon to explore the city in a series of sightseeing options including the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, a Kutani-ware Ceramics Kiln, and a gold leaf workshop.

Take an express train to Osaka for a Taiko Drum Experience. In Nara, you will marvel at the Great Buddha of Todaiji Temple, and the herd of over a thousand friendly, free-roaming Sika deer. Then spend three nights in the old imperial capital of Kyoto. This city will completely immerse you in Japan's ancient culture and customs, with the opportunity to enjoy the great Weeping Sakura tree at Maruyama Park, the thousand red gates of Fushimi Inari Shrine, as well as the Golden Pavilion. Other sights include a walk through the Sagano Bamboo Forest in Arashiyama, the view from Kiyomizu Temple's dramatic veranda, and a magical performance by human "robots" at the GEAR Theatre. You will also enjoy lessons in calligraphy and ikebana, try on a colorful kimono, eat traditional Kyoto cuisine with an apprentice geisha, and learn to meditate in a temple like a Zen Buddhist monk.

A trip on a bullet train connects your group to Hiroshima and Miyajima Island, famed for the dramatic sea gate of Itsukushima Shrine. While in Hiroshima, travel to the austere Peace Memorial Park and tour a sake brewery including a sake-tasting experience. You'll drive from there down to Naoshima Art Island to see the island's various art museums, displays, and sculptures including the Chichu Museum, Benesse House, and Art House Project. The next part of the tour takes you to Kurashiki for a walk by the old city canals, then on to Himeji for a viewing of the cherry blossoms near magnificent Himeji "White Heron" castle. You will finish the tour in the city of Kobe, where you can savor a mouthwatering dinner of world- famous wagyu beef.

Our Signature Classic Japan: Cherry Blossoms Tours combine the ample time to appreciate the history, culture, and nature of Japan with the chance to enjoy a once- in-a- lifetime viewing of the iconic and lovely spring sakura. Browse our detailed itinerary below for more information.
