DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Tokyo

Arrive in Tokyo and soak in the towering skyscrapers and bustling city life as you check into your hotel - the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo Hotel. This hotel is the perfect location for lounging and relaxing after making the trip into Tokyo with your family. This 5-star hotel caters to both families and adults - with a scrumptious restaurant with kid-friendly options, a spa for a break for mom and mad, and babysitting services, if needed. 

DAY 2: Tokyo

Today promises to be an exciting and fun day for the whole family! Start the day by visiting the Tsukiji Fish Market - the largest fish market in the entire world. Next, check out the Pokemon Center and see where all the craze began. Enjoy a spot of culture at the Miraikan (National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation). Finish your day by learning the traditional Japanese craft of origami at the Origami Museum. Maybe you’ll even make it to 1,000 paper cranes and earn a wish!

DAY 3: Tokyo

Discover the Meiji Jingu Shrine, where the spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife Empress Shoken are believed to rest. Next, explore the wildly colorful Harajuku neighborhood, a district in Shibuya Ward. This is where the doll-esque style and daring fashion originates and can be seen on the locals walking the streets. Take a Wadaiko drumming lesson and have fun making traditional Japanese music with the kids. End the day with a visit to Akihabara, or “Field of Autumn Leaves.” It’s known as an “electric” town for being a major shopping area for electronics and anime. 

DAY 4: Hakone

Leave Tokyo and travel to Hakone where you will have the once-in-a-lifetime experience of riding the Owakudani Ropeway and gazing over Mount Fuji. Play at Japan’s first open air museum, the Hakone Open Air Museum that opened in 1969. Splash around at the Onsen Experience, a natural hot spring said to be the best in the country. Learn about Japanese hot spring etiquette and relax in the therapeutic sulfurous waters. Continue relaxing as you spend the night at the stylish-yet-traditional Gora Kadan hotel.

DAY 5: Kyoto

Travel at high speed on the shinkansen bullet train to Kyoto. Racing full-speed ahead at 200 mph on one of the fastest trains in the world. The historic city is host to a large amount of UNESCO-designated temples, the most popular of which are Kiyomizudera, Byodoin,  Shinto-significant Tenryuji, Gold and Silver pavilions, Ryoanji rock garden, and Edo-period samurai headquarters Nijo Castle.  Sample mochi, a popular dessert made of rice from a confectionary on the side-streets. You will a cultural tea ceremony first hand and try a different treat, wagashi, which is served with the tea. After a full day of adventure, settle in for the night at the accommodating Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons, both centrally located.

DAY 6: Kyoto

Sit back and soak in the natural scenery on your Hogu-Gawa Kudari river cruise. The riverbank is covered with beautiful Sakura trees. Immerse yourself in nature as you take a walk down a bamboo path in Kyoto’s bamboo forest. The bamboo trees are so tall and thick, it’s impossible to see past them. Enjoy a cultural experience as you visit the local temple and practice Zen meditation. You may just discover a whole new way to relax!

DAY 7: Osaka

Today, travel to Osaka, a metropolitan and economic center in Japan. On the way, stop by the ancient capital city of Nara, another UNESCO-designated city. Tour Todaiji Temple, one of Japan’s most famous temples constructed in the 700’s. The Todaiji Temple is the largest wooden structure in the world. Here lives the largest bronze statue of Buddha in existence. The Buddha has been recast due to earthquake damage several times and maintains a brand new shine. The Nara Deer Park is the next stop, and it’s full of hundreds of freely roaming deer. These friendly deer are considered to be messengers of God for the Shinto people.  Make your way to Osaka to sample takoyaki (octopus dumplings) at a cooking class. This popular Japanese snack is made from octopus and flour. Spend the rest of the day at the Kaiyukan Aquarium, one of the largest public aquariums in the world. See incredibly diverse and colorful marine life from all over the planet. 

DAY 8: Departure

Time to fly home! We hope you enjoyed an incredible cultural and relaxing experience. Today, you’ll check in for your international departure flight either home or to your next destination.
