JAPAN VACATION WITH AIR 10-nights hotel, Bullet Train, daily breakfast and more!

TOKYO & KYOTO Just $3,489 with air, 10-nights hotel, Bullet Train, transfers, daily breakfast, ground transportation and more! I've been talking up our last trip to Japan for the last several years. It was absolutely amazing in so many ways. So here you have a repeat of our 2016 trip with very few changes. Although it is known as an expensive destination, with the power of our group rates and great air contract we are very pleased at the affordability of this offering. We depart the US on April 17th and arrive in Japan the afternoon of April 18th after a brief stop in South Korea (you are welcome to inquire about a deviation to spend time on your own there). We will have 4-nights in Tokyo to experience this amazing city. TOURS: We will have a variety of optional tours set up. Our itinerary will bring you to the most scenic places to enjoy mother nature. Included in this package is a full day Tokyo tour with stops to four of Tokyo's popular sightseeing spots: Tokyo Tower, the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace, Sumida River Cruise, and Asakusa Kannon temple. We will offer a wonderful day trip to Nikko and a cycling tour as well. After our 4-days in Tokyo we will board the bullet train for the 3-hour ride to Kyoto. In route we will visit Mt Fuji, Japan's tallest mountain and active volcano. We will take a boat ride on Lake Ashinoko and experience the Komagatake Ropeway. This tour is also included in your package. Kyoto has been awarded the "World's Best City" award for 2015 by Travel and Leisure magazine! It served as Japan's capital and the emperor's residence from 794 until 1868. We will offer several different optional tours to visit the most important places and world heritage sites. One of these sites is called Daigo-ji Temple. This special place spreads across Daigo-san Mountain and is well-known as the "Temple of Flowers". The five-story pagoda, Goju-no-to is now the oldest building in Kyoto having survived the Onin War in the 1400's. One of our day tours will take us Ton the Sagano Scenic Railway, a sightseeing train line that runs along the Hozugawa River between Arashiyama and Kameoka. From there we will take a little hike to a place called Monkey Park Iwatayama. From here we'll visit Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street. Much of this street along the way to the Adashino Nenbutsuji Temple has been preserved in the style of the Meiji Period [masked]). Another day tour will be a full day in Kyoto and Nara where we will discover the history and religions of ancient Japan during this 10-hour exploration of Kyoto and Nara including UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kinkaku-ji and Nijo Castle, along with its Imperial Palace. We'll also visit Nara's deer park and have a chance to feed and pet wild deer. Another tour will take us to Eastern Kyoto where we will have number of stops including The Philosopher's Path, the historic shopping streets of the Higashiyama District, Kiyomizudera Temple and Eikando a large temple that is especially nice to visit in autumn when the leaves change. We will have a free day in Kyoto with some suggestions including a nice walk up to the Fushimi Inari Shrine where you can enjoy a torii path across the mountain (When the wish is fulfilled the torii that wrote the name was built). It's a beautiful trail winding up a hill past several small temples. We will send out a complete list of the optional tours as we get a little closer to the trip. This will certainly be an amazing trip. A $200 deposit will lock in your spot.
