OCT. 16-28, 2017
Tokyo, Hakone, Takayama, Kanazawa, Kyoto

It’s a land of delicate art and bustling commerce; of rich traditions and dizzying modernity.  This well-crafted 13-day tour features the highlights of Tokyo and Kyoto, engages you in local life, and takes you off the beaten path to the lovely historic cities of Takayama and Kanazawa. Your 13-day journey begins in Tokyo touring the Shinto Meiji Shrine and historic Imperial Palace. Visit Mt. Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park and view magnificent Mt. Fuji. Overnight in Hakone at a ryokan, a traditional Japanese inn, then travel to lovely Takayama to explore this historic town’s ancient sites and enjoy a sake tasting. In Kanazawa, tour the famed Kenrokuen Garden and visit a museum celebrating the art of gold leaf technology. Conclude your journey touring Kyoto, attending a traditional Japanese tea ceremony and embarking on a cycling tour. On an optional post-tour extension, discover Hiroshima, the city reborn from the atomic destruction of World War II.
