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. The Japanese spirit is strong, warm, and incredibly welcoming.
We begin in Himeji, most famous for its magnificent castle, Himeji Castle. Only of 12 remaining original castles in Japan, it is widely considered the most beautiful, often referred to as the “White Heron”. With a population of just over half an million, this compact city offers a variety of sightseeing, all within walking distance.
From here, we are off to Hiroshima, a walk along the Peace Memorial Park, the A-Bomb Dome and visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. You also get to enjoy time on Miyajima complete with the Miyajima Ferry as our form of transportation.
On to Kurashiki to visit the historical quarter, and then Kyoto, old Japan with its quiet temples, sublime gardens, and colorful shrines.
Much more, as we have included visits to the Reclining Buddha at Nanzion Temple, not one, not two, but three bullet train rides, 3 hands-on experiences, Japanese doll painting, handkerchief painting and seasonal fruit picking at a local farm. And then, onto Tokyo, Japan’s capital to enjoy the very best of omiyage shopping, sightseeing and a visit to the Ueno Zoo to see the panda bears.
It’s a perfectly balanced tour offering history and culture combined with time to explore, shop, and enjoy Japan’s cuisine. Come, join us!
