When the snow completely melts, and the summer heat turns up, Tohoku becomes the liveliest region in Japan. Summer festivals in Japan are incredibly fun, some of the best, passed down from long ago. Every festival has its own distinct charm and attraction. They dance, they shout, they cheer, they rule! Come along, meet, and join the people behind these energetic and vibrant festivities-the soul of Tohoku summer festivals.  

This unique tour takes in the “Three Great Summer Festivals” of Tohoku, The Nebuta Festival in Amori, Akita Kanto Festival and the Sendai Tanabata Festival. But, this is only the beginning as we have also included Yamagata Hanagasa Matsuri, where over 10,000 city residents participate and a stop at Inakadate Village to view the “Field of Dreams”, dramatic scenes among the rice fields created by local villagers. They attract thousands of visitors each summer.

It’s still not over as we have included night tour on the Hakodate Ropeway, 2 hands-on experiences, sake brewery visit and Matsushima Bay cruise. Not so quick, as there’s 3 nights in Tokyo for that big city feel. Here we will be visiting a few of the more popular spots, Tsukiji Market, Ameyoko, Asakusa and Tokyo Tower. Shopping, yes, enough free time to shop your heart out! Also experience the bullet train, not once, but twice!
