Your Destinations

Tokyo

One of the world’s most cutting-edge capitals, Tokyo is a city of contrasts. Famous for its modernity, neon-lit landscape and towering skyscrapers, it is also home to sprawling parkland, peaceful shrines and temples and lovingly tended gardens. Despite its love affair with manga pop culture, fashion, high-tech trends and conspicuous consumption, below the surface is a city that has its roots in ancient heritage

Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples stand close to skyscrapers as a reminder of a more contemplative time and at the heart of the hyperactive centre lies the serene Imperial Palace, the home of the ruling emperor that provides a tangible link to the city’s historical past. 

Behind the shopping, entertainment and commercial Emporia can be found quaint wooden houses, private gardens with meticulously clipped bonsai trees and the Zen-like calm of the Hamarikyu Gardens. Discover the fascinating and exquisite culture of Japan where the ancient and modern worlds collide. The city’s reputation as a mega-expensive metropolis is ill-conceived and visitors can take advantage of inexpensive izakaya bars and neighbourhood cafes that serve delicious noodles and rice dishes. 

Kanazawa

Touched with the grand allure of its past, Kanazawa prides itself on being a historical jewel of Japan. It is best known for being home to one of Japan's most beautiful landscaped gardens - Kenrokuen - a castle garden originating from the 17th century. It's easy to discover this nostalgic city in a few days, admiring its celebrated penchant for the traditional arts, including hand-painted silks and lacquerware, ceramics and delicate gold leaf work. Spot a geisha at work, discover authentic tea houses and inns, and wade your way through the market.

Kyoto

If you're looking for old Japan, Kyoto is a must: tranquil gardens, sublime temples and colourful shrines can be found in abundance. While the rest of Japan has embraced modernity, Kyoto still keeps traditions alive. Take a stroll through the Nishijin district and spy some of the older residents emerging from the machiya (traditional townhouses) to ladle water onto their porch. If you go by an old shōtengai (shopping street) you can admire the ancient speciality shops: tofu sellers, fishmongers, pickle vendors and tea merchants. 

Hiroshima

In Hiroshima, spend some time exploring the ukkei-en garden, home to 200 yoshino cherry trees, mountain cherry trees and weeping cherry trees that blossom in the spring! The Memorial Peace Park & Museum is definitely worth a visit too.

Osaka

Explore Japan's second city and enjoy the lively neighbourhoods of Namba and Dotombori, try an izakaya, Japanese bar-restaurants! Enjoy the local specialities: okonomiyaki, savoury cabbage pancake, or takoyaki, small octopus dough balls. Continue your adventure with a trip to Osaka Castle Park with its 300 Yoshino cherry trees or to Shi-Tennoji Temple which is the oldest in Japan.

You time here gives you opportunity to discover silk kimonos, ceramics, or Wajima lacquers.

Days 7-9 or 8-11: Kyoto

Millennium, artistic, spiritual and gourmet: visiting Kyoto is an opportunity to discover the cradle of the Japanese soul in all its aspects. The essential stopover of a stay in Japan.

Our Suggestions: 
This charming city is sure to seduce you thanks to its well-kept traditions. This former imperial capital of Japan has kept its prestige and few cultural treasures that will make your trip incredible. Start with a zen walk in the bamboo field of Arashiyama, and visit the Tenryu-ji temple. Go on with plenty of sightseeing in the centre, especially in the Gion district where you can find the wonderful Geishas. You can stop by Nishiki market, famous for its impressive size, and the diverse type of food that you can find there. 

Do not leave Kyoto if you haven’t seen the fabulous Fushimi Inari-taisha shinto shrine and its thousands of red toriis in the middle of the forest. You can go ahead with a tour in the south of Higashiyama to discover the Kiyomizu-dera temple, the Maruyama koen park, or the Chion-in temple. The Nanzen-ji temple also worth a visit. Be sure to also visit the UNESCO-listed Kinkaku-ji temple and the rock garden of Ryoan-ji.
Days 10 or 12: Kyoto - Hiroshima

Day 11 or 13: Hiroshima

Our Suggestions for Hiroshima
Take the time to uncover the tragic history of Hiroshima and the amazing reconstruction that followed the bombings by visiting the Peace Memorial Park and the Peace Museum. Hiroshima also offers pleasant walks in the Ikari Shrine or Shukkei-en Garden, ideal for a reflection over the history of the city. 

Make sure you do not miss the wonderful island of Miyajima: take the ferry and set off to discover this extraordinary island, home to the famous floating torii of Itsukushima Sanctuary, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Our Suggestions for Okayama and Himeji

Boasting small hills, ponds and pavilions, enjoy a stroll to admire your idyllic surroundings. 

After a visit to Okayama, you can also stop at Himeji before proceeding to Osaka. If there is a castle not to be missed, it is that of the White Heron. The 14th century Himeji Castle is a UNESCO World Heritage treasure, probably due to its beauty but also the architectural interest it represents. Finish the tour with a stroll in the Koko-en Zen Garden, which boasts nine separate gardens, all created in the Edo period style.
Day 12 or 14: Hiroshima - Osaka
Journey from Hiroshima for one last night in Osaka (2 hours by Shinkansen, included in your JR Pass). 

Our Suggestions:
Neighboring Kyoto, Osaka is still the third largest city in Japan and deserves a stop for visiting some of its must-sees. Take time to visit Osaka Castle, one of the most important in the country, which has survived many conflicts and eras. If you feel like it, continue with the discovery of the Osaka History Museum. Stroll through the Umeda and Namba neighborhoods to shop or sample the local cuisine that is famous throughout the country, or wander the streets of the vibrant Dotombori area at night. 

If you want to uncover a bit more of traditional Japan, visit the Sumiyoshi Shrine or Shitennoji Buddhist Temple, which are both more than 1400 years old.
