Spend two days in the prominent city of Kyoto, where we have hand selected the best gardens and temples to enjoy Japan’s seasonal cherry blossoms. Visit Arashiyama, located on the outskirts of Kyoto, famous for its bamboo forest and traditional Zen landscape garden at Tenryuji Temple. Then, ride a high speed Shinkansen bullet train for experience.

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. Stroll through the beautiful Kenrokuen Garden in Kanazawa before visiting the charming village of Shirakawa-go, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Takayama, get a glimpse of what 15th Century Japan was like as you watch thousands of people dressed in costumes, traditional music performances, and stunning ornate floats parade the town at the Takayama Spring Festival.

Enjoy the ever-changing scenery along the way to Mt. Fuji, then take a ropeway ride over Hakone and Owakudani. Enjoy a guided tour in Tokyo, where you will visit the city’s cultural landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods, diverse shopping districts, and even learn how to make your own sushi with a professional chef. Some attractions include the Asakusa Sensoji Temple, Tsukiji Outer Market, Imperial Palace, Meiji Shrine, and Tokyo Tower.

Visit the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum and see over 100 bonsai masterpieces before traveling to Nikko. From there, we will visit Lake Chuzenji and the Kegon Waterfall, one of Japan's three most beautiful waterfalls. Then, discover the uniquely decorated Toshogu Shrine, dedicated to the founder of Japan’s Tokugawa Shogunate. Continue to Matsushima, where you will get to enjoy a sightseeing cruise along the picturesque bay of pine tree covered islands.
