Experience the thrilling Sanja Festival in Tokyo during our Discover Japan Sanja Festival Group Tour, an 11-day tour that includes Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Mount Fuji, Yudanaka, and the Old Nakasendo Road.

Discover Japan - especially the vibrant city of Tokyo, in an exciting and authentic way during our Discover Japan Sanja Festival Tour. The Sanja Festival is one of Tokyo’s largest and most exciting festivals. The thrilling excitement and fanfare around Sensoji Temple as the portable shrines are carried through the district creates an unforgettable scene. The tour also includes memorable sights and activities in Tokyo, Mount Fuji, Yudanaka, the Nakasendo Road, Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka.

Explore the incredible city of Tokyo starting with 2 days of sightseeing that takes you to the bustling stalls of Tsukiji Outer Market, the stately outer grounds of the Imperial Palace, the gorgeous Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, exciting Shibuya Crossing, pristine Meiji Shrine, and fashion-forward Harajuku. We include a lesson in sushi- making and half a day of free time to find your own memorable experience. Day 3 is the thrilling Sanja Festival, which takes place around the famed Sensoji Temple and the Asakusa District. One of Tokyo’s largest festivals, the Sanja Festival honors the founding of the temple, the three men who founded it, and the image of the Buddhist goddess Kannon worshiped there. The tour is most exciting on Day 3, when numerous portable shrines (or “mikoshi”) are carried around the city to great excitement and fanfare. Then we depart for Mount Fuji, to see the beauty of the sacred peak from Arakurayama Sengen Park and Lake Kawaguchi. Matsumoto is next: our gateway to Nagano and the Kiso Valley, where we pause for pictures with the Snow Monkeys of Yudanaka, see the famous works of Hokusai at Obuse, and walk the Old Nakasendo Road between the old-fashioned towns of Magome and Tsumago, through the enchanting Kiso Valley. Please check our itinerary to see our options for enjoying the Nakasendo. The tour continues to the ancient capital of Kyoto, where the famed temples and shrines on many a traveler’s must-see list make an appearance: the Golden Pavilion’s dainty phoenix, Kiyomizu Temple’s dramatic stage, the thousand gates of Fushimi Inari Grand Shrine. You can explore local sake shops in Fushimi, stroll though groves of bamboo in Arashiyama, and have dinner with geisha entertainment in the Gion District. We stop in Nara to see the Great Buddha of Todaiji Temple and greet the wild deer in Nara Park. Finally, we go to Osaka to view Osaka Castle, admire the digital artworks of teamLab Botanical Garden Osaka, and savor delectable street food (including takoyaki and kushikatsu) in Dotonbori.

The transportation for our Discover Japan tours is mostly facilitated by our sleek and comfortable private coach buses, with some public transportation and bullet train travel. The tour includes deluxe accommodations and meals as listed on the itinerary, and all our tours are fully guided by our friendly, professional English-speaking tour guides.
