JAPAN - CHERRY BLOSSOM TOUR 8 DAYS / 7 NIGHTS

The Golden Triangle of Japan, Cherry Blossom Tour

The Golden Triangle of Japan features national parks, culture, architecture, and “must see” sights of Tokyo, Takayama, Kanazawa & Kyoto. This itinerary also highlights flowering gardens and the best places to see cherry blossoms. The tour begins in Tokyo, following a route of mountainous scenes through coastal regions of Honshu island, and finishes in Osaka. Our private guides and drivers will help you navigate Tokyo’s cultural landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods, and diverse shopping districts, and of course the best spots to celebrate the cherry blossom season.

Enjoy Hakone’s natural scenery over a ropewayride, and gaze at the famous Mt. Fuji. Stay at a ryokan (traditional inn), where you can unwind in the hot springs (onsen) and dine on gourmet kaiseki cuisine. Visit the dramatic Black Crow Castle (Matsumoto Castle) en route to Takayama, located amongst the Japanese Alps.

Spend two days in Kyoto, the former capital of Japan with centuries-old structures. Visit the city’s most renowned gardens, temples, shrines, and specialty shops. The gardens and temples on this itinerary have been selected for their reputation as the “best places to view cherry blossoms”.

In Nara, be inspired by the intricate architecture of Japan’s oldest wooden building and the towering Great Buddha statue. You’ll understand why this city is considered the birthplace of Buddhism in Japan. From there, we will proceed to Osaka to experience the nightlife in Japan, where you will visit bustling entertainment districts illuminated with neon light signs.
