Overview

One of the most important aspects of traveling is to behold and experience the local tradition and culture of your destination. To emphasize this aspect while maintaining variety and comfort, we at ILJT have perfected an 11-day itinerary that covers some of the best Honshu destinations, both renowned and obscure, in a circular route that starts and ends in Tokyo.

The adventure starts with Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, and Kyoto, three of the must-visits for any traveler to Japan. Afterward, you will make a trip to the north starting from Nagoya, and finally back south to Tokyo once you have reached Kanazawa, forming a loop that we like to call the “Golden Ring” due to the variety of unique Japanese experiences that you can enjoy by following this route.

Woven into the early parts of this adventure are renowned Japanese activities, such as a tea ceremony, a geisha performance, or a visit to a kimono museum. Around halfway through, you will experience the zeitgeist of Edo Japan in rural settings. Near the end, you will study fine surviving examples of the samurai culture, before wrapping it up with a final stop in Tokyo. Indeed, this is a classic Japan tour in every sense of the word!

Please book flights to/from either Narita International Airport (NRT) or Haneda Airport (HND). 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, 7, 8, 9, and 10. The guide will be at your service during the designated tour hours.

Activities

The current capital of Japan is your starting point for this tour. Despite its modern appearance and infrastructure, Tokyo is a city of rich tradition and culture. Your day tour in this metropolis will feature mainly the traditional side of Tokyo. The attractions chosen are therefore: its oldest and most famous Buddhist temple, its largest and most significant Shinto shrine, and the current residence of the Japanese Emperor.

During your time at each attraction you will observe and mingle with the local visitors, witness their customs and actions in places of worship, and experience different aspects of Japanese beliefs. Try rubbing the smoke of Senso-ji’s incense burner on your head, getting your fortune told, or writing your wish down on an “ema” in Meiji Jingu. You will also enjoy the freshest sushi, the signature Japanese dish, at Tsukiji Fish Market.

Meals

BREAKFAST is a Western-style buffet served in the restaurant of Hotel Sunroute Shinagawa Seaside. LUNCH is a sushi set in an upscale restaurant in Ginza. As one of the branches of a sushi chain that originates from Hokkaido, the restaurant offers very high quality sushi.

Activities

Going on an excursion to Mt. Fuji today, you will witness the majestic mountain both as a natural wonder and as a form of art. In the morning, you will head to some of the best spots of the season to experience the beauty of Fuji, either directly on its slope where unique plants grow due to the elevation, or atop another mountain you can reach on a ropeway when Fuji itself is not accessible. Both places have a Japanese folk tale associated with them.

In the afternoon, you will visit a kimono museum near Lake Kawaguchi. This place displays many meticulously made kimono, including a series depicting Mt. Fuji, and arguably Itchiku Kubota’s most famous work, the “Symphony of Light.” The hard work and attention to detail that gave birth to this exhibit will fully engross you. After a mesmerizing time in the museum, you will once more return to Tokyo.

Meals

BREAKFAST is a Western-style buffet served in the restaurant of Hotel Sunroute Shinagawa Seaside. LUNCH is a course of local cuisine featuring the rare matsutake mushrooms. The restaurant is located on the slope of Mt. Fuji, and features a great view on the perfect altitude.

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 and ends in Tokyo. Please book flights to/from either Narita International Airport (NRT) or Haneda Airport (HND). 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, 7, 8, 9, and 10. 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 Days 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 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 eight nights in 3- or 4-star hotels, one night in a predesignated ryokan (Japanese-style inn), and one night in a minshuku (family guesthouse). Breakfast is included for each night’s stay in a hotel, whereas both dinner and breakfast are included for every night in a ryokan and minshuku unless otherwise specified in the itinerary. Lunch is provided on every guided day, but not on days of arrival or departure. 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 scheduled bullet train transfers between Tokyo and Kyoto on Day 4, Kyoto and Nagoya on Day 5, and Kanazawa and Tokyo on Day 10. 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 6 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.
