Cherry Blossoms bloom in Northern Japan approximately one month later than in Central Japan, between the end of April to early May. We have designed this tour for people who wish to see both cherry blossoms and wisteria by starting the tour from Osaka, traveling all the way up to Ashikaga Flower Park to see its Great Wisteria, then see the cherry blossoms in Hokkaido on the first week of May. This tour features places that are rarely seen and the famous sights of Kyoto, Takayama and Tokyo. This tour will focus on modern city attractions, historical towns, romantic rural landscapes, and other famous sights in Japan.

Begin in Osaka before traveling to Nara to see the remarkable Todaiji Temple and the Nara Deer Park. 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. You'll get the opportunity to observe a kimono fashion show and enjoy a green tea ceremony with an apprentice geisha (maiko).

Ride a high speed bullet train before visiting the beautiful Kenrokuen Garden in Kanazawa, one of Japan’s top three gardens. Head to the charming village of Shirakawa- go and the quaint town of Takayama, located in the Japanese Alps. These areas have maintained a traditional, yet unique atmosphere due to their secluded location. Our travel group will also visit the dramatic Black Crow Castle (Matsumoto Castle).

Gaze upon the iconic Mt. Fuji before taking a ropeway ride to see the natural scenery of Hakone and Owakudani. Next, enjoy a guided tour in Tokyo. Learn how to make sushi with a professional sushi chef, and visit Tokyo's cultural landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods, and diverse shopping districts. Tokyo attractions include the Shibuya Crossing, Asakusa, Tsukiji Outer Market, Imperial Palace, and Tokyo Tower.

At the Ashikaga Flower Park, bask under a stunning tunnel of wisteria flowers and see the 150 year old Great Wisteria Tree. Continue your journey to Nikko and visit its designated World Heritage sites. The Japanese have a saying: "Don’t say kekko (wonderful) without seeing Nikko." We will visit the main attraction of Nikko - Toshogu Shrine. Toshogu enshrines the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate and is lavishly decorated with a large amount of gold leaf and countless wooden carvings of various creatures.

Proceed to Matsushima, a picturesque bay full of small islands covered in pine trees 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. Enjoy the Kitakami Tenshochi Cherry Blossom Festival before proceeding 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, Shiraoi, Otaru, and end our tour in Sapporo.
