Join us on an incredible journey through Japan’s cultural kaleidoscope this summer as we explore six iconic cities—Tokyo, Atami, Mishima, Kyoto, Awaji, and Osaka. Our tour kicks off at the lively Summer Festival Yushukan Matsuri in Tokyo, where traditional dances and colorful processions come together to create an unforgettable spectacle. Next, we venture to the coastal town of Atami for the exhilarating Kogashi Matsuri, a celebration steeped in history and local traditions. As we continue our odyssey, the ancient streets of Kyoto beckon us to experience the grandeur of Gion Matsuri, one of Japan’s most renowned festivals. Immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage as we witness splendid parades, stunning historical costumes, and the resonating beats of traditional music.

In between festivities, we’ll indulge in more fun with two hands-on experiences, sightseeing opportunities, omiyage shopping, and much more! On this tour, every moment is a celebration, and every destination has a story to tell. So come along and let the festivals, cities, and landscapes of Japan weave a tapestry of memories that will last a lifetime.
