Ever dreamed of a private tour of Japan? Here’s your chance to be totally immersed in quintessential Japanese experiences—all guided by locals. This tailored tour takes you to the mega-tropolis of Tokyo, as well as the ancient capitals of Kyoto and Nara. You’ll also journey to Osaka, the lively seat of the south, and visit the historical sites of Hiroshima. Between these highlights, you’ll see first-hand the nature of the Japanese Alps in Takayama and Kanazawa.
On your private Japan tour, jump right into the best of Tokyo, with a guided visit to Meiji Shrine, a cruise on the Sumida River, and a walk through Asakusa, Tokyo’s oldest geisha district. Next, you can opt to take a day trip to coastal Kamakura or mountainous Nikko. Then, continue to Takayama and Kanazawa, a quaint village and an ancient castle town nestled in the Japanese Alps.
Before being whisked away to Kyoto by the famous bullet train, take a moment to relax in your own private onsen at an old-fashioned ryokan—a quintessentially Japanese experience that’s not to be missed. In Kyoto you’ll glimpse Japan’s proud historical past. Kyoto is home to an astounding 2,000 shrines and temples and 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Finally, round off your custom Japan tour with a privately guided exploration of lively Osaka and historical Hiroshima. Taste the famed snacks and specialties of Osaka and wander through the Peace Museum in Hiroshima. In both cities, you’ll get to see different, lesser-known sides of Japan before catching your return flight home.
