Detailed Description

Your immersive 7-day tour of Japan will begin when your flight lands at Kansai Airport in Osaka. Your first experience in Japan will lead you to the oldest Shinto shrine in the country. If you enjoy food, Dotonbori is the best place to fulfill all of your desires. You will dine like royalty at a Michelin-starred restaurant and be amazed at the visually pleasing plates in front of you.

The following day, you will visit Osaka Castle, which is the largest palace that was built during the 16th century. Hakone is a city that was built into the side of a mountain and is known for its hot springs. You will have the opportunity to submerge yourself in a private onsen. In the cultural heart of Japan, Kyoto will provide you with a serene experience in the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest.

Fushimi Inari-Taisha is a holy place to explore, and you and your family will meander through the orange torii gates, eventually arriving at the top. The art of the samurai has always been a part of Japan’s feudal history, and your family will have the chance to don the armor and learn sword techniques from a swordmaster. In the capital, you will then be led through a labyrinth of secret passages before ascending to the tallest building in Japan for unparalleled views of the city. The creative and imaginative world of Studio Ghibli will then conclude your trip.
