Discover Japan’s most beautiful parks and gardens on a 14-day luxury private tour, starting in Osaka and going through Nara, Koyasan, Himeji, Yasugi, Matsue, Takamatsu, and Awaji Island, finishing the tour with five days touring the traditional gardens of Kyoto. And to round out your tour itinerary, we have included a select range of culturally immersive activities, where you can experience a more authentic Japan. Although, as with all our private tours, the suggested itinerary below is fully customizable to suit the needs of your group.

Upon arrival in Osaka, depart for the Buddhist temple complex of Koyasan, stopping for a day and a night along the way in the ancient city of Nara to admire important cultural heritage sites – Todaiji Temple surrounded by wild deer, Kofukuji’s Five-storied Pagoda, and Gangoji’s Zen Hall. When you reach Koyasan, explore the center of Shingon Buddhism, which includes a private tour of Okunoin – Japan’s largest cemetery. Live one night like a Buddhist monk, and stay overnight in a temple lodging and enjoy vegetarian “shojin ryori” cuisine. Then head back through Osaka, stopping for an in-depth lesson in calligraphy, tea ceremony, and ikebana – three arts of traditional Japanese refinement. Admire magnificent Himeji Castle and nearby Kokoen Garden, then appreciate artwork near a spectacular landscape garden at the Adachi Museum of Art. In Matsue, relax among the colorful peonies in Yushien Garden, take a leisurely cruise around the moat of Matsue Castle, and browse the old Samurai District. From there, cross over the Great Seto Bridge to Takamatsu, to study the art of Japanese Bonsai and stroll breathtaking Ritsurin Koen Garden. Then, at Awaji Island, enjoy the sights and smells of Miracle Planet Botanical Museum and the 100-Stepped Garden of Yumebutai.

The tour wraps up with a 5-day tour of Kyoto, former imperial capital and cultural heartland for almost 2,000 years. Among the Japanese cultural elements that Kyoto is famous for (temples, shrines, kimono, tea ceremony, and more), the gardens of Kyoto are considered by many to be its loveliest feature. Many of its temples, in accordance with Buddhist traditions, maintain gardens of various kinds, including landscape gardens, water gardens, moss gardens, even rock gardens! Especial must-sees include the ancient landscape garden of Tenryuji Temple, Ryoanji Temple’s rock garden, Saihoji Temple’s Moss Garden, Ginkakuji’s “Sand Garden”, and the Western-inspired landscape garden at Murinan. You will also see two private gardens, guided by a professional Kyoto garden designer, offering a more in-depth study of Japanese horticulture.

Explore the finest gardens of Japan on a 14-day luxury private tour, with a fully customizable itinerary. Transportation is facilitated by our sleek and comfortable private coaches, and you will be accompanied by one of our friendly, professional English-speaking guides.
