Come, journey along with us to Central Japan, enjoy the best of cherry blossom viewing while discovering this amazing off-the-beaten-path. From castles to scenic seaside spots, 14th century Seki, once the center of samurai sword making to Gero Onsen, known for being one of Japan’s three most famous hot springs, this tour offers some of the country’s most beautiful natural landscapes.

We begin and end in Nagoya, while known as the industrial heartland, the city offers many cosmopolitan aspects, some fantastic museums, notable temples, and excellent shopping areas that dot what was once an old castle town. Its unpretentious nature, blending the past, present and future makes for a very friendly city. 

Our touring also includes Ise, a most sacred place in Japan, surrounded by rich nature and Inuyama, famous for one of Japan’s oldest wooden castles. Just the beginning, as there’s a stay at Gero Onsen, and then, Takayama, known as “Little Kyoto,” for a thoroughly old and authentic traditional Japanese village feel. 

This region, shaped like a dragon who ascends into the sky from Nagoya, is rich with legends and myths about dragons. Come along, feel the spirit of the dragon through nature, through shrines and temples, and through the beauty of arts and crafts. This cherry blossom tour will not disappoint!
