"A celebration of traditional Japanese arts and crafts awaits while on this Ultra-Deluxe travel tour to Japan. The traditional arts and crafts of Japan have been practiced for hundreds (if not thousands) of years and has been carefully preserved by the artisans of this incredible country from generation to generation. You will be given the chance to look at and/or learn a good variety of traditional arts and crafts, including sushi preparation, sumo wrestling, ninja and samurai culture, calligraphy, origami folding, tea ceremony, Zen meditation, and much more.

The tour begins in Tokyo, one of the biggest cities in the world. In exploring this urban jungle, you can enjoy specialty experiences like making sushi under a professional chef, viewing a live kabuki theater performance, and tour of a sumo stable. Also in the itinerary are delightful excursions to Asakusa Sensoji Temple, Tsukiji Outer Market, and the Tokyo Imperial Palace East Garden. From there, the tour proceeds to Hakone and the Mount Fuji region, one of the most picturesque places in the country. While exploring this region, in addition to viewing the iconic mountain, you will learn about classical silk dyeing techniques at the Itchiku Kubota Museum, study fascinating artwork at the Open-Air Museum, learn a Japanese form of marquetry at Hakone Yosegi Saiku Experience. The next stop is Matsumoto, where you behold the imposing Matsumoto ""Black Crow"" castle, as well as take a trip to the Japan Ukiyo-e Museum. Then travel through the mountainous towns of Takayama and Shirakawa-go, which preserve an old-fashioned culture and lifestyle particular to that area. Shirakawa-go is especially prized, protected by UNESCO for its ""gassho-zukuri"" architecture, which features large, thatched roofs folded ""like hands in prayer"" The tour then stops in Kanazawa, Japan's center for gold leaf production, where you will attend a gold leaf workshop as well as breathtaking Kenrokuen Garden. Finally, reach the ancient city of Kyoto, where you can discover some ancient historic locations such as the Golden Pavilion,. Kiyomizu Temple and Fushimi Inari Shrine to name a few. Immersive experiences are found here as well, on days when you can enjoy Green Tea Ceremony, Zen Meditation, Calligraphy, Ikebana, and Origami, and even enjoy performance arts like you'll find when having a kaiseki dinner with a Maiko, or within the more eccentric ""GEAR Theater"". Finally, take in the bucket-list sights of Osaka while visiting Osaka Castle and Dotonbori, but be prepared to indulge in a few more traditional Japanese crafts, including a knife-making experience, a Taiko drum lesson, and a Noh Performance at a Noh Theater.

There are many more traditional arts, crafts, and cultural sites for you to enjoy while on tour to Japan. Please feel free to browse our detailed itinerary below."
