  • Day 1: Tokyo
    Upon arrival in Tokyo, transfer to the hotel by hotel complimentary shuttle bus and check in. The remainder of the day will be at your own leisure to enjoy.                                               

    *** Airport assistance will be available for all guests arriving into Tokyo Narita Airport between the hours of 10:30am to 9:30pm.
    For guests arriving outside of the service hours, arriving into Tokyo Haneda Airport, or making pre-extension stay, please make your own way to the hotel and check in with passport.
  • Day 2: Tokyo
    Today, take a full day city tour of Tokyo. First, visit the Meiji Shrine, arguably Tokyo's most popular shrine, is surrounded by a lush green forest. Head to the Sensoji Temple, one of Tokyo's most colorful & photographed temples. When approaching the temples, you will see the Karminarimon, the outer gate of the temple and the symbol of Asakusa. After lunch, make a photo stop at the Imperial Palace, the primary residence of the Emperor of Japan. Like an island of respite at the heart of Tokyo, the Imperial Palace is surrounded by parks and gardens offering a getaway from the busy city streets. See the Nijubashi, one of the most well-known bridges in Japan. If you are looking at the bridge from the front, the two separate bridges appear as a single two storied bridge. Proceed to Tokyo Tower for a photo stop before heading to Ginza, one of Tokyo's most busy districts, packed with shopping, dining, and nightclubs. You will have some free leisure time here to explore on your own.  (B, L)
  • Day 3: Tokyo ~ Hakone ~ Shizuoka
    Today, depart Tokyo and head to Hakone. Take a Boat Cruise on Lake Ashi. Today, Lake Ashi is often pictured with Mount Fuji in the background as a symbol of Hakone. Visit the Oshino-Hakkai, a peaceful nature area around Mount Fuji. Oshino-Hakkai means the eight seas of Oshino, which is comprised of eight ponds as its name describes. These natural ponds are crystal clear and each one is a little unique. Continue to the Bussharito Heiwa Park. Here you will find a beautiful view of Mt. Fuji that houses the chalky stupa. Continue to Shizuoka and check in at the resort for the night. Enjoy the hot springs bath tonight at the resort. (B, L, D)
  • Day 4: Shizuoka ~ Kyoto
    In the morning, continue to Kyoto and visit the famous Golden Pavilion with all its beauty. This pavilion cannot be entered and can only be seen from the outside, but yet it is one of Japan's must visit temples and on many people's bucket list. Hopefully you can get some great selfies. Next, head to Gion District. As kabuki dramas became popular on the Gion district’s western edges, more sophisticated forms of entertainment were developed for the theater-goers. Today, Gion is known as Kyoto’s most famous geisha district. Hanamachi – literally “flower town” is a district where geisha entertainment is centered. Each district has its own okiya (geisha households), ochaya (teahouses for entertaining) and kaburenjo (geisha district office).   Enjoy some free time here before heading to the hotel and check in.  (B, L)
  • Day 5: Kyoto ~ Nara ~ Osaka
    This morning, visit the Kiyomizu-dera Temple, an UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most celebrated temples of Japan. The temple is best known for its wooden stage built without the use of nails. Take a stroll along the Sannenzaka & Ninenzaka Street, two of Kyoto's most attractive streets. Lined with beautifully restored traditional shophouses and restaurants, Sannen-zaka and Ninen-zaka are a pair of pedestrian-only lanes that make for most atmospheric strolls in the whole city. Continue to visit the Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine. The magical, seemingly unending path of over 5,000 vibrant orange torii gates that wind through the hills behind the shrine make it one of the most popular shrines in Japan.

    After lunch, depart Kyoto to Osaka. Enroute, stop in Nara and visit the Todai-ji Temple.  The Todaiji Temple, a landmark of Nara and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of Japan's most famous historically significant temples. The main hall, which houses the colossal bronze Buddha statue within, remains the world's largest wooden building. A stop will be made at a duty free shop. In the late afternoon, visit Shinsaibashi, the largest shopping district in Osaka. With a history of 380 years, it was already an established shopping area in the Edo Period. Shops of all kinds and for all ages line the street, including a roofed arcade 600 meters long. Many people enjoy window-shopping and savoring the food along the way. (B, L)

  • Day 6: Osaka ~ Home 
    After breakfast, make your own way to the airport for your flight back home as your trip comes to an end. Departure transfer is not included. Our tour guide will provide you with assistance and instruction on where to obtain the airport limousine bus ticket. (B)
