Winter in Japan can be a magical experience with the right guide to show you all the rare seasonal beauty and cultural gems that the country offers. On this special 14-day itinerary, you'll have our best to assist you - our company president, Miharu Katsume. Having worked over 30 years as a travel guide in Japan, Miharu offers the very best travel experience, with a friendly and attentive group management style as well as in-depth knowledge of each location. Your tour begins in the winter wonderland of Japan's Hokkaido region, exploring the cities of Sapporo and Otaru, continuing down into mainland Japan through Matsumoto, Takayama, Shirakawa-go, Kyoto, Nara, Hakone, and Tokyo, for an unforgettable winter experience full of gorgeous festivals, cute snow monkeys, and even cherry blossoms!

Winter in Hokkaido is a festival season with several must-see festivities, and the Sapporo Snow Festival is at the top of the list. The festival encompasses both the Odori and Susukino districts of Sapporo and features massive life-size buildings and impressive sculptures made entirely of snow and ice. Nearby, the port city of Otaru hosts their annual Snow Path Light Festival, with tiny, glowing snow lanterns lining the sides of the romantic Otaru Canal. Our guests will have plenty of opportunity to discover the history of this region while exploring the Historic Village of Hokkaido and Otaru's Sakaimachi district. Tasty local specialties including a lunch of live crab, delightful local brewed beer, sake, and home-distilled whisky.

From Otaru you head down by overnight ferry to the city of Niigata on the main island, making our way up into the mountains of Nagano to the Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park. Troops of curious Japanese macaques, or "snow monkeys" come down from the mountains to bathe and groom one another in the local hot spring reserved especially for them; it's a popular winter sight that is not to be missed. The tour continues through the mountains with stops in Matsumoto, Takayama, and the UNESCO-protected village of Shirakawa-go. Prized for its unique farmhouses with broad, thickly thatched roofs, the town is a fairytale-like wonder to behold in any season, but is especially magical in winter, when visitors may be fortunate enough to see the sleepy little town covered in a blanket of fresh snow.

After a visit to Kenrokuen Garden - one of Japan's Three Great Gardens, we take you to Kyoto, former capital of feudal Japan and enduring center of its traditional culture. A city of a thousand temples and shrines, we visit the cream of the cultural crop: the Golden Pavilion, Kiyomizu-dera, Tenryuji Temple (with nearby bamboo grove), and many more treasures of old Kyoto. Wear a kimono, drink green tea, and try old-fashioned Kyoto cuisine with a geisha apprentice. Nara, an even older capital city, is close by, and features Todaiji Temple. This great Eastern Temple houses a magnificent Buddha and is surrounded by a herd of friendly, adorable Sika deer.

As the tour draws to a close, we head up toward Hakone and Tokyo, with a stop in Kawazu to experience the Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival. The Kawazu cherry tree is the the earliest of the sakura trees to flower on the mainland. In spring, its branches are covered in pretty pink blooms of brighter shade than your average cherry blossom, and entice you to stroll under their dreamy canopy and partake in a variety of cherry-flavored sweets. We take in the gorgeous nature of Hakone - the Hakone Ropeway and Owakudani - before finally going to Tokyo. Japan's capital is popular with tourists for a good reason, and we bring you all the must-see locations, including Sensoji Temple, Tsukiji Fish Market, and Tokyo Skytree.
