About the Tour

Join this trip if you want to experience the best of Japan in 8 days. Our “Japan – the land of rising sun” tour starts from the vibrant city of Tokyo, takes you to the natural wonder of Mt. Fuji followed by a visit to the city of Hirsohima. The last leg of the trip enables you to romance with the timeless & charming Kyoto. But do remember, this tour is for the people with a true traveler’s mindset!

Japan is one of a kind! A country where one can see the rare yet harmonious blend of ancient traditions and cutting-edge technology, along with bustling cities, picturesque landscapes, world-renowned cuisines like sushi and ramen, a rich cultural heritage reflected in art, architecture, and festivals, and unparalleled hospitality and politeness of its people!

Who would believe that a country, once completely torn by the nuclear attack on its major cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and been destroyed so many times by earthquakes & Tsunami, would still rise to become one of the global powers? But Japan has done that beautifully while embracing its culture & old traditions.

Tokyo, Japan’s bustling capital, offers a mesmerizing fusion of modernity and tradition. One can dive into the vibrant chaos of Shibuya Scramble Crossing, marvel at the towering heights of Shibuya Sky, explore the serene beauty of traditional gardens like Shinjuku Gyoen, walk through the neon-lit neighborhoods, and indulge in delectable street food & some street shopping on Asakusa Street.

About 100 kilometers southwest of Tokyo, lies the domination of the magnificent Mount Fuji. Did you know that Mount Fuji, located at an elevation of 12389 feet, is Japan’s highest peak and still an active volcano? Mount Fuji is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, holds immense cultural and spiritual significance in Japan, and is also an iconic symbol of the country.

But, you haven’t truly explored Japan if you haven’t spent a few days in timeless Kyoto. It is located at a distance of roughly 350 km from the Mount Fuji viewpoint and is the cultural heart of Japan. Kyoto beckons with its vintage allure and allows you to wander through centuries-old temples and shrines, immerse yourself in Kyoto’s renowned cuisine. You can wander through the Gion district, indulge in traditional tea ceremonies, and witness the preserved wooden machiya houses, offering glimpses into Japan’s rich cultural heritage.

Did you know that Gion in Kyoto is one of the few places in Japan where the traditional geisha culture is still preserved? A geisha is a traditional Japanese entertainer skilled in music, dance, and conversation. They wear elaborate kimono and makeup and entertain guests at tea houses and gatherings with their artistic talents.

How can we say that our trip to Japan is complete without visiting Fushimi Inari Shrine? It’s famous for its iconic rows of thousands of vibrant red torii gates, which wind their way up Mount Inari. Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of the most Instagrammable places in Japan, along with the mesmerizing natural wonder named Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. This enchanting bamboo forest features towering bamboo stalks that create a tranquil and surreal atmosphere.

While visiting the cultural hearts, bustling cities, and the natural wonders of Japan, we will also be embarking on a soul-nourishing culinary journey. Be it Sushi, Sashimi, Udon, Ramen, Tempura, Gyoza, or matcha, Japanese food reflects the country’s deep appreciation for nature and culinary artistry. But mind you, you should be an experimental connoisseur to experience the delights of Japanese cuisine.

Have you ever thought about what sets a trip to Japan, apart from any other destination in the world? These are the daily encounters of a tourist with the innovative technology of Japan. Be it the world-famous smart Japanese toilets, bullet trains, cashless payments, robotic restaurants, smart accommodations, etc. Technological features are embedded so much in everyday life that a tourist keeps getting surprised by the convenience offered by the same.
