DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Experience the best of this fascinating, beautiful, and unique country with our Classic Japan itinerary. Enjoy seven thrilling days of luxury travel, taking in Tokyo’s most famous districts, Kyoto’s cultural sites, and enjoying time in Fushimi, Uji, and Nara. Spend your nights at some of Japan’s most luxurious hotels, and experience truly warm and authentic Japanese hospitality. 

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Tokyo

Arrive today in Japan’s thriving, exciting capital, Tokyo. Transfer to your luxury hotel - we recommend either the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo, the Peninsula Tokyo or Aman Tokyo, and get acquainted with your new surroundings. Relax at your hotel, getting rested up for the day ahead.

DAY 2: Tokyo

After a gourmet breakfast, head to the newly opened Toyosu Fish Market. Enjoy its mixture of wholesale and retail shops, which celebrate traditional and innovative Japanese dishes. Then, visit the site of the former Tsukiji Fish Market, where although the fish market is now absent, the remaining outer market remains active selling produce and kitchenware. The Edo Tokyo Museum is your next stop, where you can learn all about Tokyo’s history and culture. Pop over to Ginza, Tokyo’s upscale fashion district, before taking a course in the ancient art of calligraphy.

DAY 3: Tokyo

Continue your exploration of Tokyo today with a visit to the well-known and revered Meiji Jingu Shrine, dedicated to Emperor Meiji, who died in 1912, and his wife. Next, head to funky, trendy Harajuku, and take a stroll along Japan’s version of the Champs-Elysees, known as Omotesando. Spend your afternoon museum-hopping, from Nezu Museum to Mori Art Museum, and finish off your day in the nightlife haven of Roppongi. 

DAY 4: Kyoto

Today you’re heading to what many say is the cultural capital of Japan, Kyoto. You’ll head there by bullet train, or shinkansen as the Japanese call it, upon which you’ll see the countryside fly by in a thrilling blur. Once arrived, check in to your luxury room at one of our three recommended hotels: Hoshinoya Kyoto, the Hyatt Regency Kyoto or the Ritz-Carlton Kyoto. Settle in and get to know Kyoto by visiting a few key spots, including Sanjusangendo Temple, Kiyomizudera, Yasaka, and the Gion area. 

DAY 5: Nara

After breakfast today, you’ll take a day trip to Fushimi, Uji, and Nara. These nearby stops are home to such culturally-important sites as Fushimi Inari Taisha Grand Shrine, Byodoin Temple, Todaiji Temple, Kasuga Taisha Grand Shrine, as well as Nara’s Deer Park. Don’t forget to take your camera so that you can capture it all! Return from your trip to your luxury Kyoto hotel. 

DAY 6: Kyoto

For your final day in Kyoto, you’ll start off with a trip to Kinkaku-ji Temple, known for its delicately-manicured gardens and floors covered in gold leaf. Next, check out the Zen temple, Ryoan-ji, one of the finest Japanese rock gardens in the world. Spend the second half of your day visiting the Miho Museum, which houses the private collection of Asian and Western antiques of Japan’s wealthiest woman. The structure itself is impressive, having been designed by I. M. Pei, known worldwide as the master of modern architecture.

DAY 7: Departure

For your final day of your luxury Japan itinerary, take the bullet train back to Tokyo, and check in for your onward flight to your next destination.
