The samurai were a special class in Japanese society. These revered warriors were highly respected for their strict dedication to their craft, the immense discipline required of a samurai and their indomitable fighting spirit. To many they were heroes.

Although samurai do not have any official status in today’s modern Japan, descendants of samurai families still enjoy a high esteem among the Japanese population and have remained an iconic symbol of courage, power, and masculinity for over 700 years of Japanese warfare history. 

Roads are an essential part of civilization. They help people travel and discover many different places. In Japan, during the Edo period the Tōkaidō (East Sea Road) was an important key artery for the ruling shogun dynasty to keep control over the country. Stretching along the Pacific Coast from Edo (Tokyo) to Osaka, two to three weeks on foot, was always an adventure.  

Does the Tokaido Road and the travelling life of a samurai sound exciting? Join us on this unique tour for not only have we included the best of cultural activities, but added in some fun experiences, a full day at Universal Studios Japan, Ueno Zoo to see the Pandas, experience the Shibuya Crossing, Kaiyukan Aquarium and a full free day in Osaka!
