Perfect for those who want to visit the well known regions of Japan, plus Expo 2025 Osaka Kansai.

This tour consists of the Best of Japan itinerary and an additional day in Osaka for the Expo 2025 Osaka Kansai.

Expo 2025 Osaka is a global event in Japan showcasing future technologies, cultural exhibits, and sustainability solutions. The event features national pavilions, an innovation zone, and artistic installations. Visitors can explore themes like future living, sustainability, and cultural exchange while enjoying entertainment and international cuisine. The Expo aims to foster collaboration and envision a better future.

This tour caters to a wide variety of interests from culture, architecture, nature, Onsen spa baths, to 21st century sights. Our private guides and drivers will help you navigate Tokyo's cultural landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods, and diverse 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. Spend a day at Hakone and Mt. Fuji. Next, experience a bullet train ride and stay at an Onsen Hotel (Japanese style room), where you will have dinner and can unwind in the hot springs (onsen).

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. From Nara, proceed to Osaka, you will have a chance to see why Osaka is called the "night life city".

Tour the remarkable Himeji Castle and the photogenic canal town of Kurashiki. Continue to Hiroshima to visit the Peace Memorial Museum and Park, then head to Miyajima Island and take in views of the distinguished torii gate of Itsukushima Shrine. At high tide, the vermillion- colored gate appears to "float" on top of the sea. Then, drive through the Shimanami Kaido, a 60 kilometer long toll road that connects Japan's main island of Honshu to the island of Shikoku, passing over six small islands in the Seto Inland Sea.

On the Shikoku Island, take a trip to the Ritsurin Garden in Takamatsu, enjoy a leisurely boat ride, and reflect on panoramic views of the Oboke Gorge. Our group will also have the chance to savor the world-famous Wagyu beef in Kobe. This itinerary is perfect for those who want to visit the renowned regions of Japan.
