Traveling to Japan during New Year’s is a great opportunity to capture a rare glimpse into the modernization of traditional Japanese culture. It is a time when most Japanese people return home to partake in traditional ceremonies and festivities. On this very special Omiyage Weekender Tour, experience and be part of that tradition.
If shopping is on your list, we have it covered, with visits to Tsukiji Market, Ameyoko, Komachi dori in Kamakura and free time in Odaiba. There is also a free afternoon and evening in Ikebukuro where all the favorites are located- Don Quijote, Daiso 100-yen Store, UNIQLO and sister store GU, Tokyu Hands, the Sunshine City Mall and Seibu Department Store.
We have also included a visit to Ueno Zoo to see the pandas and on New Year’s Day time at Tokyo largest Daiso. We guarantee your first words will be, “Oh my gosh, this store is HUGE!”
For sightseeing enjoy an overnight stay in Kamakura after seeing the Great Buddha so that we can visit the award-winning winter illumination, The Enoshima Sea Candle Illumination. There is also a visit to the Edo Period, Odawara Castle, Itchiku Kubota Art Musuem and views of Mt. Fuji from Oshino Hakkai.
New Year’s Eve day includes a visit to Meiji Jinju Shrine and Shibuya Crossing Street just hours before the crowds arrive for the evening’s welcoming of the new year.
On New Years’ Day it’s all about tradition beginning with hatsumode, the years’ first visit to a shrine. We will be visiting Nezu Shrine for the traditional prayer at the main hall and purchase lucky charms for a fortunate new year.
After celebrating New Years’ Day in Tokyo, board your flight home and you get to do it all again, Hawaiian style with friends and family. It doesn’t get much better than this. Join us, won’t you.
