Japan is one of the world’s most rewarding destinations to explore due to its distinct culture, futuristic cities, and stunning natural landscapes.

Autumn is when Japan is often at its most vibrant with stunning red leaves and other brilliant fall foliage. Thanks to the intimate group size, we can get to the very heart of this destination, getting to know the locals and visiting places other tours may miss.

Of course will we explore the diverse city of Tokyo, steeped in ancient history, with a unique blend of modest tradition and cutting edge innovation. And we will also venture more deeply into Japan visiting cities like Osaka, Hiroshima, Kyoto and Yamanashi,  where we will cruise Lake Kawaguchiko to experience breathtaking views of Mt. Fuji, and take a ride on the Mount Fuji Panoramic Ropeway.

Key immersion experiences include learning the art of origami, joining a traditional green tea ceremony, and attending a Geisha show.

There are very few spots available for this adventure, so don’t wait to book! Come along as we seek to immerse ourselves in Japanese culture & hospitality.
