Our Majestic Japan Autumn Leaves group tours combine our new Between Tokyo and Osaka itinerary with our highly popular Best of Japan Autumn Leaves (Reverse) tours for a well-rounded 14-day group tour that offers both the chance to experience the top must-see destinations of Japan combined with less-touristy locations in more out- of-the-way regions. Together, they paint a picture of Majestic Japan: onsen baths and traditional cuisine, rare local experiences, traditional and modern Japanese cityscapes, and unforgettable seasonal beauty. This special seasonal itinerary takes full advantage of the spectacular autumn leaves season, when the trees at many parks, landscapes, and temples in Japan glow bright with fall colors.

This itinerary departs from Tokyo, traveling towards Yudanaka Onsen, and stopping in Takasaki for a Daruma Doll Painting Experience and in Karuizawa to admire the beauty of the Stone Church and Shiraito Waterfall. In Yudanaka, visit the cute and curious Snow Monkeys, who can be admired all throughout the year, then go to Matsumoto to study the famous artworks at the Japan Ukiyo-e Museum. Explore Takayama’s Old Town and browse the stalls at its Morning Market, then go to UNESCO World Heritage village Shirakawa-go to appreciate its unique “gassho-zukuri” architecture featuring thick thatched roofs. In Kanazawa, stroll Kenrokuen Garden, one of Japan’s Three Great Gardens, and try your hand at decorating with real gold leaf at a local experience. We stop for the evening in Osaka before traveling to Himeji to behold the breathtaking white tower of Himeji Castle, then to Kurashiki to stroll beside its charming canals. The tour continues to Hiroshima, to see the thought-provoking monuments in the Peace Memorial Park and the profound exhibits in the A-Bomb Museum. At nearby Miyajima, we see the captivating Floating Gate of Itsukushima Shrine before taking a drive along the scenic Shimanami Kaido, which crosses the Seto Inland Sea to Shikoku, spending a day on the island admiring its majestic beauty. Embark on a cruise down the Oboke Gorge, which sits at the mouth of the breathtaking Iya Valley. Along the cruise, you will be able to appreciate its fascinating rock formations. Then climb the 1,368 steps up Kotohira-gu Shrine for a breathtaking view. (If you are unable to climb it, there are many things to enjoy at the base of the shrine). We stop in Takamatsu to stroll through idyllic Ritsurin Garden - breathtaking in autumn colors, which is widely considered one of Japan’s loveliest gardens. From there, the tour heads back from Shikoku to the main island, stopping first in Kobe for a meal of mouthwatering Wagyu beef, and then in Nara to meet the friendly Sika deer outside Todaiji Temple, before arriving in Kyoto. Kyoto is the ancient capital and a city full of temples, shrines, and ancient history, and our tour includes only the most picturesque of scenes: Fushimi Inari Grand Shrine with its thousand gates, the Zen Garden of Tenryuji Temple, the shimmering phoenix of the Golden Pavilion, and Kiyomizu Temple’s sacred springs. Many of these historic sights are accented by nearby fall foliage. While in Kyoto, enjoy a Green Tea Ceremony hosted by a Maiko and stroll through the Gion Geisha District. We make our way from there to Tokyo, stopping briefly at the Miho Museum in Koka, then enjoying a short bullet train ride to Hakone to take in the stunning views of Mount Fuji and the region around it before finally arriving in Tokyo. Enjoy the best of Japan’s busiest city: Shibuya Crossing, Tsukiji Outer Market, a Sushi-making Experience, Asakusa Sensoji Temple, and Tokyo SkyTree, before the end of the tour.

Join our Majestic Japan Autumn Leaves group tour for a 2- week Japan trip that seamlessly combines the most important and popular destinations in the country with special off-the-beaten-path countryside experiences for an unforgettable 2-week travel experience. Our tours include deluxe hotels (some Japanese-style accommodations), transportation mostly via our comfortable and convenient private coach buses (with a bullet train ride and airport shuttles), breakfast every day and other meals as listed on the itinerary, and the services of our friendly, professional English-speaking guides.
