Japan’s Golden Route


9 Days, 8 Nights

Japan Endless DiscoveryThe classic Japan itinerary showcases on three completely different places. First Tokyo, amusingly nicknamed The Big Orange, famous for its cutting edge modernity, neon-lit landscape and towering skyscrapers. 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.
