Discover Tokyo

Today's city tour starts on the observation deck of the 634-metre Skytree, the world's tallest tower, before seeking out the tranquility of the ancient Buddhist Sensoji Temple. Glimpse Tokyo's historical heritage at the Edo-Tokyo Museum and explore Tokyo's Imperial Palace.

Day 5

Fuji Five Lakes

Journey through the foothills of the iconic Mt Fuji to its base where we find the Fuji Five Lakes. The region is spectacular with the calm waters of the five lakes, formed by past eruptions, reflecting Fuji's picture-perfect cone. Try your hand at making traditional Japanese soba noodles before tucking into your creations. Continue to Oshino Hakkai, a scenic area of ponds full of crystal clear spring water created by Fuji’s melting snow, where there is also a small museum.
Day 6

Mt Fuji

Ascend Mt Fuji to the 5th Station. Return to the beautiful Five Lakes region and explore Iyashi no Sato. Destroyed by a landslide in 1966, the remaining thatched-roofed houses of this old Japanese village have been transformed into an open-air museum and craft village, exhibiting plenty of local, and traditional handicrafts.
Day 7

Bullet train to Kyoto

Sit back and relax in the cool comfort of a bullet train as you speed across the country to Kyoto. An enchanting city, Kyoto was capital for a thousand years; today it is the legacy of ancient Japan, full of tranquil temples, silk-clad geisha and sublime gardens. This afternoon visit a traditional tea house and explore the Kinkakuji Temple, known as the Golden Pavilion and Ryoanji, a Zen temple with an excellent example of a dry landscape garden.
Day 8

Explore Kyoto

Visit the Kiyomizu Temple, a 16th century Buddhist temple before learning the traditional Japanese art of origami and enjoying a tea ceremony.
Day 9

Hiroshima and Miyajima

Take the bullet train to Hiroshima and Miyajima. Hiroshima needs no introduction. The city today is vibrant and modern with a forward-thinking, sunny outlook. Find a moment to reflect at the Peace Memorial Park and Museum. Hopping on a ferry, make the short trip to the holy island of Miyajima. Visit the Itsukushima Shrine. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Japan’s most recognisable, it rises majestically out of the waters of the inland sea.
Day 10

Himeji

Drive to Himeji where the feudal era fort, one of the most impressive in Japan, towers over the city recognisable as the backdrop to several major films. Explore the beautiful castle and Kokoen Garden before continuing to Osaka for dinner.
