Japan’s Golden Route

It is also home to cherry tree filled parks, peaceful shrines and temples, and lovingly tended gardens. Then Hakone, a natural nature wonderland, famous for its hot springs and superb views of nearby Mount Fuji. Finally, Kyoto is the nation’s former capital and was the residence of the emperor from 794 until 1868. It’s geishas, tea houses and temples impart a sense of history to all who visit.
