Your itinerary in detail:


Your Tour:
Fly UK to Japan (overnight)
‣ Upon arrival at Osaka Airport you will be greeted and transferred to the hotel. The second largest city in Japan, Osaka has the nickname ‘Tenka no Daidokoro’ (the Nation’s Kitchen) thanks to its reputation as a gourmand’s paradise, so be sure to try some local cuisine. BB
‣ Osaka – Kyoto – Hamamatsu. This morning depart Osaka for Kyoto. Upon arrival, enjoy a special tour including a stop at Fushimi Inari Shrine, an important Shinto shrine in southern Kyoto. It’s famous for its thousands of vermilion torii gates, which straddle a network of trails behind its main buildings. The tour continues with a visit to Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavilion), a Zen temple in northern Kyoto adorned with dazzling gold leaf. The last stop of the tour is to witness a Kimono Fashion Show where beautiful women wearing varieties of kimono and obi (sash) appear on stage with Japanese music. BB
‣ Hamamatsu – Mt Fuji – Odawara – Tokyo (Bullet train experience). After breakfast, leave Hamamatsu and drive to Mt Fuji’s 5th Station. Located 2300m above sea level, it offers a vantage point for Mt Fuji and the surrounding lakes (weather permitting). The 5th Station also features shrines, torii gates and souvenir shops. Afterwards continue onwards to Lake Ashi, nearby in Hakone National Park, to admire the scenery as you take a short cruise across the lake. The waters are overlooked by surrounding mountains, including Mt Fuji and Mt Komagatake. Then transfer to Odawara Station for a bullet train experience to Tokyo. BB
‣ Tokyo sightseeing. This morning you will enjoy an introductory tour. Visit Tsukiji Fish Market (out market only), which has amazing atmosphere and is one of if not the best fish markets in the world with a wide array of street food stalls and amazing restaurants serving both raw and cooked fish. Visit Senso-ji Temple, a Buddhist temple located in Asakusa. It is one of Tokyo's most colorful and popular temples. The legend says that in the year 628, two brothers fished a statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy, out of the Sumida River, and even though they put the statue back into the river, it always returned to them. Consequently, Senso-ji was built nearby for the goddess of Kannon. The temple was completed in 645, making it Tokyo's oldest temple. Last stop at Shibuya Crossing, the busiest intersection in the world and the landmark of Tokyo city. BB
‣ Tokyo Free Day. Today enjoy a free day to explore the vibrant metropolis that is Tokyo.BB
