This 22days Grand Tour of Japan is the longest and most comprehensive escorted group tour of Japan that you will find. Tour starts from the northern island to the far south by a private coach, visiting all 4 main islands of Japan. This tour caters a wide variety of interest about Japan from culture, architecture, nature, rural villages, historic towns and modern city attractions.

Start your trip in the rarely visited island of Kyushu. Beginning in Nagasaki, visit Nagasaki Peace Park, Dejima, Glover Gardens with its romantic turn of the century houses, and Oura Catholic Church, the oldest standing Christian church in Japan. 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.

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, passing 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 and visit the photogenic canal area of Kurashiki and the majestic castle at Himeji. A splendid example of traditional architecture and one of the few original castles remaining in Japan. Proceed to Kobe to savor the world famous Wagyu beef.

We then proceed to Nara as well as the ancient city of Kyoto, where you will have exclusive access to the city's gardens, temples, shrine, castle and specialty shops. The Kenrokuen in Kanazawa is classified as one of the three most beautiful landscape gardens in Japan. Then head on to Shirakawa-go & Takayama, located amongst the Japanese Alps. Due to their remote location, these places are beautifully preserved and developed their own culture that is unique from the rest of Japan. Visit the dramatic Black Crow Castle (Matsumoto Castle). See how impressive mother nature is at Hakone and Mt. Fuji. Enjoy a guided tour in Tokyo. Visit Tokyo's cultural landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods, and diverse shopping districts. Learn how to make your own sushi with a professional sushi chef and savor your delicious creations. Explore attractions like the bustling streets of Shibuya, Asakusa district with an atmosphere of old Tokyo, Japan's largest and busiest fish market, the historical Imperial Palace, and the record- breaking Tokyo Tower.

The Japanese have a saying: "Don’t say kekko (wonderful) without seeing Nikko." Let's explore the wonderfully ornate temples and shrines which have been designated as World Heritage sites in Nikko. We will then proceed to Matsushima, a picturesque bay full of pine tree covered small islands, where we'll explore ancient caves once frequented by meditating monks. Matsushima is famous for being one of the Three Most Beautiful Natural Sights in Japan. Then we head up to Hiraizumi for a cultural interlude and stroll around the magnificent Japanese Cedar Trees and photogenic buildings at Chusonji Temple. In Towada, we'll visit Lake Towada, Japan's third deepest lake. A volcanic crater lake 44km in circumference is the perfect backdrop for our nature walk along the creek through Oirase Gorge. Then we visit the Nebuta Warasse in Aomori, before proceed to Hakodate by crossing the Tsugaru channel between the islands of Hokkaido and Honshu, via the undersea train tunnel.

Our trip continues in Hokkaido, the second largest, northernmost and least developed land of Japan's four main islands. On the island of Hokkaido, we will visit Hakodate, Onuma Park, Lake Toya, Noboribetsu, Biratori, Otaru, and ends our tour in Sapporo. This itinerary is perfect for those who wish to discover the whole country in one time and see all Japan has to offer.
