http://www.samuraitours.com/smt/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/best-of-japan-main-v2.jpg

More than any other country, the Japanese have managed to integrate ancient traditions and bleeding-edge technology harmoniously into their daily lives. With the perfect mix of new and old, and our most popular itinerary, this well-rounded tour has something for everyone. In this excellent introduction to Japan, you won’t miss anything the first-time visitor to Japan should see.

Destinations

Tokyo, Kamakura, Hakone Yumoto Onsen, Hakone, Takayama, Koya-san, Osaka, Miyajima Island, Hiroshima, Kyoto, Fushimi, Nara

In the best that Japan has to offer, and our most popular itinerary, you’ll enjoy a colorful mix of large cities like Tokyo and Osaka, quaint and traditional Takayama, the ambiance and solitude of Miyajima Island, the historically significant temples of Kamakura the capital of Japan in the 13th century, the religious center of Koya-san, the ancient shrines and temples of Kyoto and Nara, the testament to peace of Hiroshima, the natural beauty of Hakone, the thermally-heated mineral water baths at an onsen and much, much more.

You’ll stay overnight at a mountaintop Buddhist temple where Buddhist monks will serve you meals of shojin ryori (the traditional Buddhist vegetarian cuisine). Receive meditation instruction from the monks and attend prayer services at the temple early the next morning. Climb to the top of a samurai castle, participate in a tea ceremony, visit the world’s largest fish market, stroll through farmer’s markets, meet a “maiko” (geisha-in-training) face-to-face, see where the geisha live and work, stay overnight on beautiful and quiet Miyajima Island, soak in the thermally-heated mineral waters at an onsen, admire sacred Mt. Fuji (weather permitting), the icon of Japan and enjoy three gourmet Kaiseki-style dinners and one shojin-ryori Buddhist vegetarian meal, and much, much more.

DAY 1Arrive Tokyo

You lose a day flying to Japan due to crossing the International Dateline, and gain the day back when you fly home. You will be met at Tokyo’s Narita airport by a Samurai Tours guide, who escorts you and your group to the ryokan in Tokyo. After checking in, the evening is free. No meals are included.

Travel: 1-1/2 Hours; Walking: Light

DAY 2Tokyo – Tsukiji Fish Market, Roppongi Hills Observation Deck, Ginza, Sensoji Temple

After breakfast, you will start the day with a Welcome/Orientation meeting. Next, the licensed, English-speaking guide will escort you by subway to the Tsukiji Fish Market. This market is the largest in the world, and it is estimated that 20% of all of the fish caught in the world passes through this market. Next, we will take the subway to Roppongi Hills, where we will visit the Tokyo City View. From the observation deck on the 53rd floor of the Roppongi Hills Building, you will get a bird’s eye view of Tokyo while also getting oriented to Tokyo, and a glimpse as to just how large Tokyo really is. On a clear day you might even see Mt. Fuji. Afterwards, we travel by subway to the famous Ginza district, the most expensive real estate in the world where we will first stop for a lunch of Kushiage (fried meat and vegetables on bamboo skewers). After lunch, you will have some free time to wander through the numerous boutiques and department stores. Visit the Nissan and BMW showrooms to see the latest automobile technology. Explore the Sony Building where you will find many of Sony’s products on display, some of which aren’t on the market yet. After traveling by taxi to the Hinode Pier, we take a relaxing cruise on the Sumida River back to the Asakusa area. Here we will tour the Nakamise-dori, Senso-ji Buddhist Temple and the Asakusa Shrine where you will learn about Buddhist and Shinto Japanese religious practices. Breakfast at the ryokan and lunch at a local restaurant included.

Travel: 1-3/4 Hours; Walking: Heavy

DAY 3Free Day in Tokyo

The day is free to explore Tokyo on your own. Go shopping for that perfect souvenir, visit the Meiji Shrine dedicated to the Japanese emperor of the 19th century, or wander through the trendy Shibuya or Harajuku districts where you will more than likely see interesting and far-out fashions. Breakfast is included.

Optional Tour – Nikko – $100

Travel by express train to the mountain town of Nikko where the Tosho-gu Shrine is located. This shrine – built by Tokugawa Iemitsu – is a dedication to his grandfather, Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu. (James Clavell’s fictional Shogun in his novel Shogun was based on this person.) One of the most elaborate monuments in Japan, no expense was spared in this shrine’s construction. We will visit Rinnoji, Toshogu and Taiyuin. Lunch at a local restaurant is included.

Travel: TBD; Walking: TBD

DAY 4Kamakura – Hasedera, Kotokuin (Great Buddha), Hokokuji (Bamboo Temple); Travel to Hakone Yumoto Onsen

Before leaving Tokyo, you will prepare your luggage to be transferred to Takayama, and will be traveling to Hakone and Takayama with an overnight bag only. We board a subway and an express train to the ancient city of Kamakura, the former capital of Japan in the 13th century. Hase-dera Temple, originally established in the 8th century houses a famous Kannon statue made from wood and gold leaf, and also has a commanding view of the nearby ocean. Next we will visit Kotokuin, the home of the famous Kamakura Great Buddha. This 40-foot tall bronze statue of Buddha, built in the 13th century is an icon of Japan. After a relaxing noodle lunch, we continue by taxi to Hokokuin Temple, also known as the Bamboo Temple. Here you will be able to relax and enjoy the serene atmosphere of the bamboo garden while savoring tea and sweets. Late in the afternoon, we will travel to Hakone Yumoto Onsen, where we will stay overnight. Here you can enjoy the thermally-heated mineral baths at the ryokan. A local, licensed English-speaking, Japanese guide will be joining us for the day. Breakfast at the ryokan and lunch at a local Japanese restaurant are included.

Travel: 2-1/2 Hours; Walking: Medium

DAY 5Hakone, Travel to Takayama

After checking out of the ryokan, we will tour Hakone. Hakone is famous for its natural beauty and the view of nearby Mt. Fuji (weather permitting). We will be taking many different forms of transportation (electric train, funicular, gondola and bus) around Hakone including the Hakone Sightseeing Boats on Lake Ashi. In good weather, passengers aboard the sightseeing cruise can get a fine view of Japan’s most famous peak, Mount Fuji, and enjoy Hakone’s rich scenery reflected on the lake’s calm surface. Along the way we will be stopping at the Owakudani on the ropeway. The large windows of the gondola allow visitors to observe the panorama of Hakone’s unspoiled natural setting. Owakudani offers magnificent views of Mount Fuji in what is still an active geo-thermal region. Here at Owakudani, you will have free time to explore the thermally-heated pools and mud pots. You can try one of the `black eggs`, which are eggs hard-boiled in the thermally-heated mineral waters. It is said if you eat one of these eggs, it will add seven years to your life. (It is probably said by the people who sell the eggs.). After returning to Hakone Yumoto and picking up our overnight bags, we will continue on to Takayama. Takayama, in the middle of the Japan Alps, with its traditional inns, shops, and sake breweries, has managed to retain its traditional charm. After checking into the ryokan, the evening is free to enjoy one of the many nearby Hida Beef restaurants. (Hida Beef is the same thing as the more famous Kobe Beef.) Breakfast at the ryokan is included.

Travel: 5 Hours; Walking: Light

DAY 6Takayama – Miyagawa Morning Market, Jinyamae Morning Market, Takayama Jinya, San-machi-suji District

This morning we stroll through the farmer’s market, sampling the numerous options from vegetable stands and stalls selling herbs, pickles, and souvenirs. After that, we tour the Takayama-jinya, which was the governing office of Takayama and the surrounding area since the early 17th century. The guide will take you to the San-machi-suji district, consisting of merchant homes dating back to the 16th century. From here the rest of the day is free to roam and explore Takayama. Visit the many temples, shrines and museums, rummage through antique shops, or relax at one of the sake breweries. A Kaiseki-style dinner will be served at the ryokan in the evening. Breakfast and Kaiseki-stlye dinner at the ryokan are included.

Optional Tour – Takayama – $75

After finishing the scheduled tour of Takayama at the Takayama Jinya, the guide will take you on a tour of the San-machi-suji District. Lined with merchant homes, sake breweries and craftsmen’s workshops, it was the center of the old town and today it still retains its quaint atmosphere. After enjoying a ramen lunch, we will continue to the Hida-no-Sato Open Air Museum. With more than 30 traditional farmhouses and other buildings from the surrounding area, its main attractions are the “gassho-zukuri” style farmhouses. These massive farmhouses with their steep, thatched roofs which look like praying hands (gassho-zukuri translates to praying hand style) were built without a single nail.

Travel: TBD; Walking: Medium

DAY 7Travel to Koya-san, Overnight at a Buddhist Temple, Meditation Lessons

We will travel to Koya-san with overnight bags only. The rest of the luggage will be delivered to our ryokan in Osaka where we will be staying the following night. We board an express train and Shinkansen bound for Osaka, and continue to Koya-san by subway, train and funicular. Koya-san is the world headquarters of the Shingon school of Esoteric Buddhism. Kobo Daishi, considered by many to be the most influential religious person in Japanese history, established a religious community here in the year 816. After checking into our shukubo (Buddhist temple lodging), you are free to roam and visit one of the 110 temples in the area or just rest in the garden at the shukubo. Your dinner of shojin-ryori (traditional Buddhist vegetarian cuisine – no meat, fish, onions or garlic) will be served by the Buddhist Monks from the temple. After dinner, one of the monks from the temple will give instructions on meditation. Meditation is an important part of Buddhism, and the path to enlightenment. Breakfast at the ryokan and shojin-ryori dinner at the temple are included.

Travel: 7 Hours; Walking: Light

DAY 8Koya-san – Morning Prayer Service, Okunoin Cemetery and Temple, Garan Temple Complex; Travel to Osaka

Very early in the morning, we attend o-inori (Buddhist prayer services). Afterwards, a shojin-ryori breakfast is served. Following this meal, we wander through the huge cemetery leading up to the Okuno-in temple. Kobo Daishi is buried at this temple, and many Japanese still believe that Kobo Daishi is not dead, but merely in a very advanced state of meditation, waiting to awaken at the appropriate time. After touring the Garan Temple complex, we will stop for a Shojin-ryori lunch. A local, English-speaking, Japanese guide joins us at Koya-san. After returning to Osaka, picking up our luggage and checking into our ryokan, the evening is free to visit the Dotombori-dori and the Namba Districts (South Osaka), the nearby nightlife and restaurant district. While there, you can visit the Ebisu-bashi bridge, which will make you feel like you stepped into the movie “Blade Runner.” Shojin-ryori breakfast at the temple and Shojin-ryori lunch at a local restaurant are included.

Optional Tour – Osaka – $75

While there are not a lot of sightseeing options in Osaka, the best way to experience Osaka is to simply explore the city on foot. And the best time to enjoy Osaka is at night when the South Osaka area of the Dotombori and Namba Districts come into its own. At this time the numerous large, neon signs and the hawkers and pachinko parlors of the area combine to create an audio-visual overload. The tour will include Doguyasuji, a street in the Namba District lined with restaurant supply stores (including stores selling the plastic food models you see everywhere in Japan). In the Dotombori District, you will visit the Hozenji Temple and Yokocho, an area that retains an old-time atmosphere and where so many locals come to pour water over the temple’s statues, they are now covered in moss. In contrast, you will also visit the Ebisubashi Bridge next to the Dotombori Street. With its towering neon signs, a visit to the Ebisubashi Bridge is like stepping into the movie “Bladerunner”. The tour will begin with a dinner at a local kaitenzushi restaurant (conveyor belt sushi) where you select whatever looks good as it passes by on the conveyor belt.

Travel: 3 Hours; Walking: Heavy

DAY 9Osaka – Osaka Castle; Travel to Miyajima Island

Before leaving in the morning you will need to prepare your main luggage for transfer to Kyoto. We will then take the subway to Osaka Castle. Osaka Castle is one of Japan’s most famous castles, and played a major role in the unification of Japan during the sixteenth century. It was the home of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the son of a farmer who unified Japan after a 100-year civil war. After lunch at the ryokan, we will continue on to Hiroshima by Shinkansen, and then a local train to the harbor where we will board a ferry for Miyajima Island. Miyajima Island is said by the Japanese to be one of the top three scenic sights in Japan. The evening is free to enjoy the solitude and ambiance of the island after all of the day-trippers head back to the mainland. Breakfast, lunch and kaiseki dinner at the ryokan included.

Travel: 3 Hours; Walking: Medium

DAY 10Miyajima Island – Free Day

The entire day is free to enjoy and relax in the beauty and ambiance of Miyajima Island: ride the cable car to the top of the mountain on Miyajima Island, or visit the Itsukushima-jinja shrine which was built in its present form in 1168. Or just stroll around the island while enjoying grilled oysters and momiji manju (a popular Japanese confection), the island’s specialty. Breakfast and kaiseki dinner at the ryokan included.

Travel: TBD; Walking: TBD

DAY 11Hiroshima – Peace Park and Museum; Travel to Kyoto

After taking the ferry and local train back to Hiroshima, we tour the Peace Memorial Museum and the Peace Memorial Park, which are both sobering testaments to the dropping of the A-bomb on August 6, 1945. Afterwards, we are off to Kyoto via the Shinkansen. Once in Kyoto, we pick up our luggage and check into our ryokan, where we stay for the remainder of the tour. Breakfast at the ryokan is included.

Travel: 3 Hours; Walking: Heavy

DAY 12Kyoto – Ryoanji, Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion), Tea Ceremony, Nijo Castle

We will start the morning at Ryoan-ji. To many, the temple’s name is synonymous with the temple’s famous karesansui (dry landscape) rock garden, thought to have been built in the late 15th century. Perhaps the most famous garden in Japan, the garden’s designer is unknown and left no explanation of the meaning of the garden. The dry-style garden consists of three groupings of 15 rocks surrounded by raked sand. From the viewing point on the veranda, only 14 rocks can be seen at one time. Move slightly and another rock appears at the same time that one of the original 14 rocks disappears. In Buddhism, the number 15 denotes completeness. You must have a total view of the garden to make a meaningful experience. And yet, as in the conditions of the real world, that’s not possible. Next we will visit Kinkaku-ji. Kinkaku-ji, also known as the Golden Pavilion, is one of Kyoto’s, as well as Japan’s, most recognizable attractions. The gleaming building covered in gold leaf seems to float on the aptly named Mirror Pond, especially on a sunny day. After a noodle lunch we will learn about the tea ceremony. The regimented discipline of the tea ceremony has been practiced for more than 400 years, and at one time was considered mandatory for Samurai as an aid to train the mind. You will even have an opportunity to make your own tea. After the tea ceremony, we will visit Nijo Castle. Built in 1603, it was the Kyoto home of Tokugawa Ieayasu, the first Tokugawa Shogun. The ostentatious style of construction was intended as a demonstration of Ieyasu’s prestige, and to signal the demise of the emperor’s power. The finest artists of the day filled the castle with delicate transom woodcarvings and paintings by the Kano School on sliding doors. One of the castle’s most intriguing features is the so-called “nightingale” floors. To protect the Shogun from real or imagined enemies, these floorboards creak when stepped on. Breakfast at the ryokan and lunch at a local restaurant included.

Travel: 2 Hours; Walking: Heavy

DAY 13Fushimi – Fushimi Inari Shrine; Nara – Todaiji (Great Buddha), Nara Deer Park; Kyoto – Gion Geisha District

Today we are off by train to the nearby city of Fushimi, one of the largest sake producing regions of Japan. Here we will visit the Fushimi Inari shrine. This Shinto Shrine, established in the 8th century, is famous for the long tunnels of vermilion torii gates straddling a network of trails leading to the top of the heavily forested Mt. Inari. Next, we are off by train to Nara, the original capital of Japan in the 8th century before it was moved to Kyoto. Here you will see Todai-ji, which is the largest wooden building in the world and houses the world’s largest bronze statue of Buddha. Along the way, you can feed the famous Nara deer. They have been in this area since the 7th century, and roam freely protected by Buddhist traditions. We will stop for lunch before returning to Kyoto. In Kyoto, we will finish the day at the famous Gion Geisha District. Here, you will see where the Geisha live and work while you learn about this mysterious world. You may even see one on their way to one of their appointments. A local, licensed, English-speaking, Japanese guide joins us in Fuishimi, Nara and Kyoto for the day. Breakfast at the ryokan and lunch at a local Japanese restaurant in Nara are included.

Travel: 2 Hours; Walking: Heavy

DAY 14Kyoto – Free Day, Sayonora Dinner and Meet a Maiko Session

The morning and afternoon is free. During the day, we can arrange for a home visit for those who are interested. This is an opportunity to visit with a local Japanese family in their home. (There is a $60 per person fee for this.) In the early evening, we will travel by taxi to a restaurant to enjoy our Shabu-Shabu Sayonara dinner. During the dinner in a private room, we will be joined by a “Maiko” for a private Maiko dinner party. A Maiko is a geisha in training. She will perform a short dance, answer any of your questions, pose for pictures with you and teach you some traditional Japanese party games. Breakfast at the ryokan and dinner at a local Japanese restaurant included.

Optional Tour – Kyoto Home Visit – $60

This is an opportunity to visit with a local Japanese family in their home.

Optional Tour – Kyoto – $115

You will start the day with a visit to Ginkakuji (Silver Pavilion). Built in 1482 by the grandson of the Shogun who built the Golden Pavilion (Kinkakuji) who was another Shogun himself, Ginkakuji became a cultural center of Kyoto in its day. Today, you will also find a beautiful and peaceful moss garden as well as a unique dry-landscaped garden. Next, you will visit the Philosopher’s Path. With its stone path along a quiet canal and many cherry trees, it is one of Kyoto’s favorite cherry blossom viewing spots. After a noodle lunch, you will visit Eikando Temple. Since it’s inception in the Heian Period (710-1185), the temple has changed its religious affiliation many times, giving it a very eclectic atmosphere. But it is perhaps most well known for its many Japanese maple trees. The tour will end at the Kyoto Handicraft Center, one of the best places in Kyoto to shop for souvenirs.

Travel: 1/2 Hours; Walking: Light

DAY 15Home

It’s time to say “sayonara” (goodbye). You will be escorted from the ryokan to the Kyoto train station. From there, you will take the express train on your own to the Kansai International Airport, just outside Osaka, or return to Narita Airport by Shinkansen and Narita express train on your own for your flight back home. (If you are flying out of Narita Airport, be sure to schedule a flight after 15:00 to allow yourself enough time to catch your flight.) Breakfast at the ryokan is included.

Travel: 3 Hours; Walking: Light
