Japan has a rich history that stretches back thousands of years and the country’s ancestors have left their imprint everywhere. It is a world apart – a cultural Galápagos where a unique civilization blossomed, and today thrives in delicious contrasts of traditional and modern. 

We begin in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan and cultural heart of the country. Set amid beautiful historical landmarks–traditional temples, shrines, and gardens–this metropolis is also an exciting hub for modern city life. 

We’ll then head over to Osaka, a nocturnal megalopolis illuminated by dazzling neon and vivid storefronts. Above all, Osaka is a city that loves to eat: its unofficial slogan is kuidaore (“eat until you drop”). 

Next, we’ll visit Hiroshima, a city rebuilt following the horrific split second on August 6, 1945, when it became the site of the world’s first atomic bomb attack. Today, Hiroshima has become the spiritual center for the peace movement and the largest industrial city in the region.

We’ll also make our way to Kobe, a dreamy destination with beautiful scenery and world-renowned cuisine, including mouth-watering Kobe beef!

Here are a few highlights from the tour: rides on bullet trains, ferries and ropeways, visits to 5 UNESCO sites, trips to cultural landmarks, an adventure to Universal Studios, and plenty of shopping opportunities!
