The Garden and Art Cherry Blossoms Tour offers you the most magnificent of Japan's gardens in one of the loveliest seasons, guided by our garden-knowledgeable guide, including a trip to Naoshima Art Island.

Our Japan Garden & Art Tour features fourteen days' worth of meticulous garden landscapes, where each tree, rock, pond, and teahouse is poetically placed to engage the mind. Cherry blossoms in springtime are special here indeed although evergreen trees is a major player in traditional Japanese gardens as Japanese wished for eternity in making them. The cherry blossoms bring extraordinary beauty to the gardens, parks and streets so that people walk around in high spirits and enjoy them around this time of the year. Please come and share this Japanese spring fantasy which will last only a week. The itinerary includes must-see museums to add a splash of thought-provoking contemporary art to complement the relaxing garden atmosphere.

Your journey through Japan's best garden spots will be facilitated by an English-speaking, government certified guide with over 10 years of experience. Having studied under the NHK Kyoto garden program, your knowledgeable and friendly guide will bring a specialized expertise to your tour. Additionally, the tour includes meeting an insightful tour with a Japanese garden expert and former gardener in Kyoto, who will be available to answer any questions about Japanese landscape gardening and maintenance, and also go with you to tour Murin-an - a charming Japanese promenade garden.

Discover the best gardens of Japan, as well as other gorgeous locations as you travel through Himeji, Matsue, Kurashiki, Takamatsu, Naoshima, Bizen, Osaka, Nara, Kyoto, Hakone, and Tokyo. Some of the top gardens we will visit include Ritsurin Garden, Yushien Garden, Isuien Garden, and the gardens of Kyoto's temples - including two private local gardens! While on the tour, you will be surrounded by unforgettable scenes of Japan's famous cherry blossoms in such top viewing spots as the Philosopher's Path of Kyoto and Tokyo's Chidorigafuchi.

This is also an art tour, so you will visit some select modern museums. Travel by ferry to the inspiring Naoshima Art Island, for a day of discovery at the island’s intriguing museums designed by architect Tadao Ando - featuring the Benesse House, a combination museum and hotel, displaying a variety of contemporary artworks. Also included are the Kawaguchiko Muse Museum, the Ohara Museum of Art, the Bizen Osafune Japanese Sword Museum, and the Hakone Open Air Museum, with numerous sculptures that incorporate the surrounding nature, adding a new layer of beauty to each work.

Finally, we added handpicked cultural experiences to help you make the most out of your trip to Japan by taking a close look at traditional customs. While in Osaka, we visit Hasshu-an, an exclusive establishment which offers an in- depth look at green tea ceremony, ikebana flower- arranging, and zen meditation. Explore the Imbe Bizen Pottery Village to study the Bizen style of pottery- making. More native experiential opportunities include trying on a kimono and savoring some traditional Kyoto cuisine while being entertained by a Maiko.
