From bustling cities to quiet mountain villages, experience the distinct flavor of Japan during this amazing voyage. Situated in the shadows of towering Mount Fuji, dazzling Tokyo is a vast collection of soaring skyscrapers, historic temples, peaceful gardens and excellent museums. One day, you will see the Meiji Shrine and the Samurai Museum, where you can learn about Japanese history and see authentic swords and armor plus stop at Shinjuku Gyoen Garden which dates to the 1600s. Also enjoy a visit to one of the city’s most colorful sites, the Asakusa Kannon Temple.
A highlight of this experience is the Shinkansen (bullet train) ride from Tokyo to Kyoto. This is, by far, the most entertaining way to travel between cities at speeds that can reach 200 miles per hour. You will spend your next 3 nights in the “cradle” of Japan’s cultural heritage, Kyoto. Your experience includes visits to Sanjusangendo Temple and the beautiful Temple of the Gold Pavilion. Built on a lake and surrounded by a thick forest, the image of the temple’s reflection in the water is a must-take photo. You will also walk through Gion and explore the thousands of Torii Gates at Fushimi Inari Shrine.
