Springtime in Japan means the annual return of cherry blossoms.

Cherry blossoms hold a very special place in the Japanese heart. You can experience this tradition, plus many others, such as the Miyako Odori (cherry blossom dancing show that performed by the geiko and maiko) and Takayama Sanno Spring Festival when joining this tour. The Takayama Festival is known as one of the most beautiful festivals in Japan, and the spring festival called Sanno Festival takes place on April 14 and 15 every year. The main feature of the Takayama Festival is gorgeous yatai (floats) decorated with detailed carvings, tapestries, and karakuri dolls (marionettes).

This tour combines Japan's most popular destinations when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom: Himeji, Hiroshima , Nara, Kyoto, Kanazawa, Takayama, Mt Fuji and Tokyo. This package is ideal for travelers who have more time to enjoy Japan and soak in the atmosphere of each location. It features slower pacing, and upgraded hotel accommodations. We'll start in Osaka, the largest city in the Kansai Region. Visit Himeji Castle , where over a thousand cherry trees are scattered across the castle grounds. Enjoy the combination of the castle's stone walls and imposing buildings with the blooming flowers.

You will visit the photogenic canal area of Kurashiki and proceed to Hiroshima , a dynamic city offering great food, nightlife and the sobering Peace Memorial Museum and Park. Take a day trip to the nearby sacred Miyajima Island to see the iconic floating torii gate. Hop on a bullet train to Osaka; visit Nara before transferring to the ancient city of Kyoto for three nights. With your private guide and driver, tour important castles and temples, gain exclusive access to gardens, enjoy a private tea ceremony in a traditional Kyoto wooden townhouse (Machiya), explore an enormous bamboo forest, sample shojin ryori ("monk's food") in a local temple, stroll Kyoto's elegant residential backstreets and browse small specialty shops. Travel to Kanazawa , one of feudal Japan's wealthiest cities, located on the Sea of Japan.

Enjoy a tour of the UNESCO- listed thatched-roof farmhouses in Shirakawa-go en route to Takayama, a tradition-steeped mountain hamlet in the shadow of the Japanese Alps. In Takayama , transport yourself back to the 15th Century Japan as you watch thousands of people in costumes, traditional music performances, and wonderfully ornate floats parading through town. Visit the dramatic Black Crow Castle (Matsumoto Castle ) and the Ukiyoe Museum in Matsumoto . Spend a day at Mt. Fuji and Hakone. Here you'll stay at a ryokan (traditional inn), relax in the therapeutic waters of a private hot springs (onsen) bath, and delight in the fine flavors and presentation of a Japanese banquet dinner. Lastly, get yourself back to the 21st century in Tokyo for a three night stay and try to get your grip on this modern metropolis, a city of pulsating energy. In between, you'll have the chance to experience the many aspects of Japan that make it such a unique and fascinating country.

Our Classic Japan tours are created to connect you to your destination. That's why our Classic Japan tours are limited to just 18 guests. This allows you to eat in small local restaurants and enjoy more interaction with your tour guide.
