Plan a Luxury Japan Winter Private Tour to experience the beautiful winter season, together with historic treasures, immersive cultural adventures, delicious cuisine, and of course, breathtaking natural splendor.

Explore Tokyo’s most popular locations. Tour bustling Toyosu Fish Market, walk the Shibuya Scramble Crossing, browse the fashions of Harajuku, shop in upscale Ginza, see the historic treasures of the Nezu Museum, stroll peaceful Meiji Shrine, and behold Sensoji’s enormous red lantern. Next, visit Hakone, and take a cruise on Lake Ashi in a pirate ship, ride the Hakone Ropeway to the volcanic landscape of Owakudani, and view creative art installations at the Open Air Museum. Visit Lake Kawaguchi, which offers some of the best views of iconic Mount Fuji, and see the silk-dyed kimono of the Itchiku Kubota Art Museum.

From there we visit Yamanouchi to view the natural hot springs of Jigokudani, where the Japanese macaques, also known as “Snow Monkeys”, come down to bathe. We go from there to Takayama, stopping in Matusmoto along the way to view Matsumoto “Black Crow” Castle, and walk the Nakamachi District. In Takayama, you will be able to browse the stalls of the Morning Market, tour the old Takayama Jinya government office, stroll past traditional buildings of Takayama Old Town, and see colorful parade floats at the Yatai Kaikan Museum. Next is the UNESCO World Heritage Shirakawago region, which preserves old farmhouses built in the time- honored “gassho-zukuri” architectural style. While there, take a class where you learn to make your own soba noodles!

Then we go to Kanazawa, home of beautiful Kenrokuen Garden – one of the Three Great Gardens in Japan. Kenrokuen was designed to be lovely in all seasons; and this Japanese landscape garden is spectacular in winter. While still in Kanazawa, visit the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, and explore the Nagamachi Samurai District. We head in the direction of the ancient city of Kyoto, stopping along the way at iconic Osaka Castle and Nara’s Todaiji Temple with nearby Deer Park. Then experience the time-honored temples and traditional atmosphere of Kyoto (many of them protected as UNESCO World Heritage Sites), visiting the Golden Pavilion, Kiyomizu Temple, Nijo Castle, Tenryuji Temple and Garden, and Kodaiji Temple – where you can learn Zen Meditation and participate in a real Green Tea Ceremony. Finish your tour with a dinner of traditional Kyoto Kaiseki Cuisine while enjoying a Geisha performance.
