Visit the "must see" and hidden gems of Japan.

This journey will be a great experience for both season travelers and first time visitors to Japan. The itinerary includes the popular must see sights in Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Naoshima and Hiroshima, but will also include the hidden gems of Matsue, Tottori and Asago.

We start off in Tokyo with a private guide and driver to help navigate through cultural landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods and various shopping districts. Learn how to make your own sushi with a professional sushi chef and savor your delicious creations. Explore attractions like the Asakusa district with an atmosphere of old Tokyo, Japan's largest and busiest fish market, drive by the historical Imperial Palace, and take in the view from the record- breaking Tokyo Skytree’s main observation deck.

We will continue to travel to Hakone where majestic sceneries of Mt. Fuji can be seen. Then proceed to Miho Museum, a stunning architecture that accentuates the surrounding nature while exhibiting a variety of items from different ancient civilizations. It was designed by the renowned architect, I. M. Pei, and is named after Koyama Mihoko, one of the richest women in Japan and the founder of the museum. Moreover, the museum has been listed as one of the "1000 Places To See Before You Die".

Spend two days in the ancient city of Kyoto, where you will have exclusive access to the city's gardens, temples, shrine, castle and specialty shops. You'll also get the opportunity to experience a traditional green tea ceremony hosted by an apprentice geisha (maiko). Visit Arashiyama for its famous Togetsu Bridge, bamboo groves, and Tenryuji Temple where you can have a glimpse of traditional Zen landscape garden design. At Nara, be inspired by the intricate architecture and towering monuments, including the Great Buddha statue, and you'll understand why this city is considered the birthplace of Buddhism in Japan.

After Nara we will traverse to Osaka the second largest metropolitan city in Japan. Experience the nightlife surrounded by bright neon light signs. On this part of the tour we will be going to three locations that have been listed as one of the 31 most beautiful places in Japan by CNN. Motonosumi Inari Shrine has 123 red torii gates situated on the side of a mountain with the Sea of Japan in the background. Tottori has the largest sand dunes in Japan that have were cultivated thousands of years ago. The Takeda Castle Ruins are said to be the Machu Picchu of Japan as it is built 353 meters above sea level. These locations are famous among Japanese natives, but are hard to reach for foreigners. For art you will be travelling to the famed Naoshima and visit the museums on the island. In addition to those locations we will be going to gardens like the Kiseki no Hoshi Botanical Museum, Ritsurin Garden, Adachi Museum of Art, and Kokoen Garden. You will also have a chance to visit two of the twelve original castles in Japan. Matsue Castle nicked named Black Castle and Himeji Castle also known as White Heron are a sight that will not disappoint.

On this tour you will be travelling to must see tourist spots and explore hard to reach hidden gems.
