This winter, join us as we explore the dozens of charming experiences that can only be had in Tohoku. Just a shinkansen ride away from Tokyo, Tohoku in winter transforms into a dreamland of ski slopes, steaming hot springs, and snowy townscapes reminiscent of Japan of yesteryear. And let’s not forget the award-winning sake breweries too! 

This fun packed tour combines the best of two worlds: an off the beaten track experience along with Japan’s capital city, Tokyo! On our Tokyo days, we’ll visit the famous Tsukiji Outer Market, Ameyoko Shopping Street, and Yushima Tenjin for beautiful plum flower viewing. There’s even a complete free day to sightsee on your own or catch up on omiyage shopping!

On this complete tour, we’ve included 4 exciting festivals: Hirosake Castle Snow Lantern Festival, Odate Amekkoichi (Candy Festival), Namahage Festival and Bunkyo Plum Festival. Also included are: 2 bullet train rides; 2 hands-on experiences with indigo dyeing experience and kamaboko making; a ropeway ride; a bay cruise in Matsushima; sake brewery tasting; and so much more!
