Beginning in the northern island of Hokkaido, we will first visit Otaru for its nostalgic canal area and glassblowing shops. Continue to Sapporo to see the city’s landmarks and entertainment district. You will also get to learn about the indigenous people of Japan in Ainu Museum and visit the steamy valley of Noboribetsu. Next, head to Lake Toya and Onuma Park for a scenic interlude. Experience one of Japan’s three best night views from the Mt. Hakodate Ropeway.

Take an undersea train tunnel to Aomori, where you will visit the Nebuta Warasse, a colorful museum dedicated to the Nebuta Festival. Visit Lake Towada and enjoy a nature walk along the creek of Oirase Gorge. Afterwards, head to Morioka Handi-Works Square and Chusonji Temple for a cultural experience. Then, take a sightseeing cruise around Matsushima, a picturesque bay famous for being one of Japan’s three most scenic views. End your day at a traditional Japanese style hotel with a relaxing onsen (hot springs) bath and a delicious kaiseki dinner.

Visit the lavishly decorated Toshogu Shrine, see one of Japan’s most beautiful waterfalls, and stroll through Lake Chuzenji. Head to Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki to see 4.5 million baby blue eye flowers bloom across its hills.

Continue your journey to one of the busiest cities in the world, Tokyo, where our guides and drivers will escort you to the top attractions. Visit Tokyo's historical landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods, diverse shopping districts, and even learn how to make your own sushi with a professional sushi chef. Proceed to Mt. Fuji and enjoy the natural scenery of Hakone and Owakudani on a ropeway ride. Experience a high- speed Shinkansen bullet train ride before visiting the beautiful Hikone Castle and uniquely-designed Miho Museum.

Experience the Aoi Festival in Kyoto, a well-preserved and graceful procession of 500 people dressed in aristocratic styled clothing. Spend two more days in the historic city of Kyoto, where you will have exclusive access to the city's top gardens, temples, and specialty shops. Our travel group will also have opportunities to experience a traditional green tea ceremony, meet an apprentice geisha (maiko), and enjoy an elegant kimono fashion show.
