Detailed Description

The ancient temples, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and the traditional tea ceremonies are important to Japan. When your flight lands at Narita Airport, your adventure will officially begin. For your first experience in Japan, your guide will escort you to Sensoji, which is the oldest temple in Tokyo. You will then dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant and experience all intricacies of Japanese cuisine. Lake Kawaguchi will provide you with an incredible view of Mt. Fuji from the vantage point of a cruise ship.

Oshino Hakkai is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is located at the base of Mt. Fuji. You will surely marvel at the lush forest that surrounds the mountain and the Shinto shrines that fill the area. In Kyoto, you will experience a traditional tea ceremony performed by a geisha. This ritual is very precise and requires many years to perform.

Hakone is known for its hot spring, and you will be able to immerse yourself in its healing waters. Prior to your onsen, you and your guide will climb aboard the Hakone Ropeway and ascend to the top of Mt. Hakone. After your adventure in the mountains, you will sink deep into the healing waters of your private onsen. Your journey will culminate in Osaka, which is known as the nation’s kitchen. Here, you can visit Osaka Castle and Dotonbori.
