Perfect introduction for first time visitors with limited time.

Whether you're a seasoned traveler or a first time visitor to Japan, we recommend "The Golden Route" itinerary, our most popular tour. This tour gives you a sampling of all that Japan has to offer, from unique locales to "must see" tourist attractions in Tokyo and Kyoto.

This is the reverse itinerary, beginning with Osaka for it's Osaka Castle. We will then take you visit Nara, where you will be inspired by the intricate architecture and towering monuments, including the Great Buddha statue, and you'll understand why this city is considered the birthplace of Buddhism in Japan. 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 will also have the opportunity to enjoy a green tea ceremony with an apprentice geisha (maiko).

Visit Miho Museum, a stunning architecture that accentuates the surrounding nature while exhibiting a variety of items from different ancient civilizations. It was designed by the renowned architect, I. M. Pei, and is named after Koyama Mihoko, one of the richest women in Japan and the founder of the museum. Moreover, the museum has been listed as one of the "1000 Places To See Before You Die". From there, visit Koka Ninja Mansion. This mansion used to be resided in by ninja, equipped with many ingenious traps and devices, designed to prevent intruders and to provide a means of escape in times of need. Next, take a Shinkansen bullet train ride for experience before transferring to Hamanako Kanzanji Onsen. There you will stay the night in a Japanese style room, where you can unwind in a hot springs (onsen) and enjoy dinner in the comfort of your hotel.

Spend a day at Hakone and experience a ropeway ride over its volanic area before visiting the renowned Mt. Fuji. Continue your adventures in Tokyo, Japan's most populous and famous city. Enjoy a guided tour through 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 bustling streets of Shibuya, Asakusa district with an atmosphere of old Tokyo, Japan's largest and busiest fish market, drive by the historical Imperial Palace, and take in the view from the record- breaking Tokyo Skytree’s main observation deck.
