Winter in Japan is not severe, especially on the Pacific coast where the climate is generally dry and the skies are often blue. This is "The Golden Triangle of Japan Tour Winter: Snow Monkeys", an itinerary especially revised for your winter visit. This tour gives you a sampling of all that Japan has to offer, from unique locales to "must see" tourist attractions in Tokyo, Mt Fuji, Matsumoto, Takayama, Kanazawa, Kyoto and Nara, as well as some changes that you can only experience in the winter.

The tour begins in Tokyo, following a route of mountainous interior through the coastal regions of the Honshu island, then we finish in Osaka. Our private guides and drivers will help you navigate Tokyo's cultural landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods, and diverse shopping districts. Learn how to make your own sushi with a professional sushi chef and savor your delicious creations. Explore attractions like the Asakusa district with an atmosphere of old Tokyo, Japan's largest and busiest fish market, the historical Imperial Palace, and the record-breaking Tokyo Tower.

On our winter itinerary, you will also visit the dramatic Black Crow Castle (Matsumoto Castle), and the famous snow monkeys at Jigokudani Nature Park. There, you'll stay at a ryokan (traditional inn) where you can unwind in the hot springs (onsen) and dine on gourmet kaiseki cuisine. Afterwards, head on to Takayama, located amongst the Japanese Alps. Due to their remote location, these places are beautifully preserved and developed their own culture as a result, making it unique from the rest of Japan. Visit the charming village of Shirakawa- go and understand what gassho-zukuri architectural style through your own eyes. You'll also have a chance to visit the beautiful city of Kanazawa, which is often overlooked by Western tourists. Here, you'll visit the Kenrokuen Garden (one of Japan's top three gardens) and see what six attributes make a perfect landscape.

You will spend two days in the ancient city of Kyoto, where you will have exclusive access to the city's gardens, temples, shrines, and specialty shops. You'll also get the opportunity to experience a green tea ceremony and a meet-and-greet with a maiko – an apprentice geisha, watch a kimono fashion show, and stroll the beautiful Arashiyama, the outskirt of Kyoto. At Nara, be inspired by the intricate architecture and towering monuments, including the Great Buddha statue. Once there, you'll understand why this city is considered the birthplace of Buddhism in Japan. From there, proceed to Osaka for last minute shopping.

This itinerary is designed for you to see both the modern, innovative as well as the traditional, unspoiled areas of Japan while taking advantage of the season to enjoy nature's gorgeous winter highlights.
