In the second half, you will take the ropeway up Mt. Yoshino and gaze in marvel as the forest of momiji gets illuminated at dusk.

Today’s schedule brings you an exciting time with a thousand wild deer in a park, a visit to temples with impressive wooden architecture, and a walk into a grand shrine famous for its hundreds of lanterns. You will also witness the largest Buddha statue in the country. It is indeed a city of wonderful landmarks!

To complete the classic Nara experience, you will be served cha-gayu for lunch. The so-called tea porridge is a traditional food of the Yamato Province, which is what present-day Nara was called 17 centuries ago.

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner Hoshino Resorts L'Hotel de Hiei Western

Activities

Leaving Tokyo in the morning, you will leave for the famous city of Kyoto on the famous bullet train. What awaits you is a classic Kyoto experience: a series of awe-inspiring temples. Witness the glittering Kinkaku-ji and its divine reflection in the water. Behold the blazing autumn colors from atop the Tahoto Pagoda in Eikan-do. You will also sample authentic Kyoto cuisine, an epitome of sophistication, beauty, and flavor.

The traditional city of Kyoto will serve as a transitioning point between the dazzling bustle of Tokyo and the peaceful quiet of your next destination. After a long-distance transfer and a relatively packed day in Kyoto, you will enjoy a classy stay in an auberge on Mt. Hiei, which boasts an incredible view of Lake Biwa. Having tasted several kinds of Japanese dishes for the past few meals, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel offers you French-style menu for dinner.

Activities

Checking out of your lavish hotel, you will visit Enryaku-ji, a secluded temple on Mt. Hiei. This is in itself symbolic of a pilgrimage, but it is also nothing less than an exciting adventure! During your visit to the historic temple, you will explore both the east (Todo) and west (Saito) area, between the two of which you will enjoy a pleasant trek through the woods. In keeping with the ascetic theme of the day, you will be served shojin ryori, a traditional Buddhist cuisine known for its creative use of natural vegetarian ingredients. As a result, both the excursion and food today will provide you a holistic study of both the history and nature of Mt. Hiei.

In the afternoon, to descend the mountain, you will take a ropeway and cable car as a side attraction to experience the moving beauty of Mt. Hiei. You will regroup with your driver at the end of the ride. Afterward, you will check into a ryokan in Kameoka. This location is a hidden gem much like Enryaku-ji. Relax in the soothing hot springs at the end of this active day, and enjoy the quality seasonal dinner that the ryokan is proud of.

Today, you will see the main highlights of the autumn colors tour -- times two! In the first half, you will be taking the exciting Sagano Romantic Train from Kameoka to Arashiyama. In the so-called “truck train”, you will see fantastic views of the Hozu River and the surrounding mountains and forests, whose beauty during the season is best described as “indescribable”. Getting off at Arashiyama, you will explore its many attractions, including the world renowned bamboo grove. And of course, a delicious kaiseki lunch is in order.

In the second half, you will take the ropeway up Mt. Yoshino and gaze in marvel as the forest of momiji gets illuminated at dusk. A romantic walking trail passes by both a large wooden temple and a famous shrine, and features many light-up spots that provides an almost illusory sight after sunset. It is only fitting that your place of stay at the end of this spectacular day will be a ryokan just a few minutes away by foot. The open-air baths and large windows will provide you with even more breathtaking views of the autumnal scenery.

Activities

Much like Kyoto on Day 3, Nara is a traditional city that serves as a buffer between the all-natural setting of the previous day and the metropolis of the next. Today’s schedule brings you an exciting time with a thousand wild deer in a park, a visit to temples with impressive wooden architecture, and a walk into a grand shrine famous for its hundreds of lanterns. You will also witness the largest Buddha statue in the country. It is indeed a city of wonderful landmarks!

To complete the classic Nara experience, you will be served cha-gayu for lunch. The so-called tea porridge is a traditional food of the Yamato Province, which is what present-day Nara was called 17 centuries ago. In other words, the dish is rich in history just as it is in flavor. After your excursion in Nara, it is time for you to be reacquainted to that lively side of Japan in Osaka.

At the end of your adventure, you will be transferred to a new hotel near Kansai International Airport, which will be your port of exit. It is time to start packing all the good stuff you collected during your stay in Japan. And if you haven’t bought enough, there is always the Rinku Premium Outlets nearby!

FAQ

Frequently asked questions about the tour

International flights are not included in the tour price, and should be independently arranged by the traveler. This particular itinerary starts in Tokyo and ends in Osaka. Please book a flight to either Narita International Airport (NRT) or Haneda Airport (HND), and a flight out of Kansai International Airport (KIX). It should be noted that we can arrange the included airport pickup service only if your flight arrives during working hours (between 9 AM and 5 PM, Japan time). We recommend flights that arrive around/after noon, as you can only check into your hotel starting at 3 PM.
An English-speaking guide will accompany you on Days 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. The guide will be at your service during the designated tour hours. Please note that the guide will be staying at the same hotel as you on Day 5 for logistical reasons. The guide will also pick you up at the airport if your flight arrives during working hours (between 9 AM and 5 PM, Japan time). In the event that your flight arrives early, we can arrange a half-day tour on the day of arrival at an additional cost.
The tour price includes five nights in 4- or 5-star hotels, and two nights in predesignated ryokan (Japanese-style inns). Breakfast is included for each night’s stay in a hotel, whereas both dinner and breakfast are included for every night in a ryokan unless otherwise specified in the itinerary. Lunch is provided on every guided day, but not on days of arrival or departure. Dinner outside of the pre-included ryokan meal is provided on Days 2 and 3. As you can only check into your hotel starting at 3 PM, in the event that your flight arrives early, we can arrange lunch on the day of arrival at an additional cost.
The tour price includes the service of a driver and a private car on every guided day. It also includes a scheduled bullet train transfer between Tokyo and Kyoto on Day 3. The driver and car will be available only during the designated tour hours, and only for the included destinations. Please note that the driver will be staying at the same hotel as you on Day 5 for logistical reasons. Airport pickup is also included if your flight arrives during working hours (between 9 AM and 5 PM, Japan time). In the event that your flight arrives early, we can extend the use of the private car for the purposes of lunch or a half-day tour at an additional cost. Please note that airport transfer for departure is not included.
All entrance tickets for destinations defined in the schedule are included in the tour price. Some tickets cannot be pre-booked, and it may be necessary for the guide to procure them on the spot. Please note that some attractions require strict compliance to pre-booked entrance times, and may void the booking if the schedule is not observed. As such, please complete your preparations to leave the hotel by the designated start time of the day.
