In Japan, when you see cherry blossoms are in bloom, this means that spring has arrived. It marks the beginning of another cycle of the four seasons and brings out special sentiments among the Japanese. Cherry Blossoms bloom in Northern Japan approximately one month later than in Central Japan, between the period from end of April to early May. Northern Japan has long winter compared to other parts of Japan. Thus, the symbol of the arrival of spring has an even more special significance to the people in Northern Japan.

We have designed this tour for people who wish to see both cherry blossoms and wisteria. At the Ashikaga Flower Park you can bask under a variety of wisteria and see the Great Wisteria Tree that is over 150 years old, which is designated a Natural Monument. Moreover, the park has also been selected as one of the 9 international dream destinations, as well as one of the 31 most beautiful places in Japan by CNN.

Upon reaching Tokyo you will transfer direct to hotel for a night stay. On the next day, we will first visit the Ashikaga Flower Park in the Tochigi Prefecture. Then we will continue our journey to Nikko. The Japanese have a saying: "Don’t say kekko (wonderful) without seeing Nikko." We will first visit the Kegon Waterfall situated in Lake Chuzenji. It is one of Japan's three most beautiful waterfalls. Then, discover the wonderfully ornate Toshogu Shrine. These sites have been designated as World Heritage sites in Nikko.

Proceed to Matsushima, a picturesque bay full of pine tree covered small islands, 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. We head to Morioka for a visit to the Morioka Handi-Works Square, a facility where you can “see, touch, and create” various traditional craftworks and foods of Morioka. In Towada, we'll visit Lake Towada, Japan's third deepest lake. A volcanic crater lake 44km in circumference is the perfect backdrop for our nature walk along the creek through Oirase Gorge. Then we visit the Nebuta Warasse in Aomori, before proceed 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 ends our tour in Sapporo. We had designed this tour for tourists who wish to discover parts of Japan that are rarely seen.
