It’s a land of delicate art and bustling commerce, of rich traditions and dizzying modernity; a jumble of sights, sounds, and tastes that for visitors are truly foreign and fascinating. This tour features the highlights of Tokyo and Kyoto and takes us off the beaten path to the lovely historic cities of Takayama and Kanazawa. Commence your Japanese discovery in cosmopolitan Tokyo, visiting the Shinto Meiji Shrine and the historic Imperial Palace district. Learn about the ancient art of calligraphy at the gallery of preeminent calligrapher Koshun Masunaga. View the majesty of Mt. Fuji within the confines of Mt. Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. Travel to lovely Takayama in the Japanese Alps to experience the narrow streets of the San-machi-suji district and enjoy a sake tasting. Tour the famed Kenrokuuen Garden in Kanazawa. Complete your journey in Kyoto, Japan’s cultural capital, where tour highlights include a traditional tea ceremony and a walk through Miyakwacho, the neighborhood where the geishas live.
