On this 12-day tour, you will travel around Honshu, Japan’s main island. The trip starts in Tokyo’s fast-paced metropolis where culture and history contrast with the new modern Japan. Head to the Izu Peninsula, a beautiful seaside region where even the Japanese Imperial family spend time in the summer. After a relaxing time here, visit the ancient former capital of Japan, Kyoto.
Kyoto is home to over 2,000 religious buildings including 1,600 Buddhist temples and 400 Shinto shrines as well as palaces, gardens and associated architecture. It is one of the best-preserved cities in Japan. It also has 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites.
The picturesque and peaceful canal town of Kurashiki is found in the Okayama prefecture, not far from Okayama City. The name Kurashiki roughly translates as “town storehouses” and many of the former storehouses have been converted into museums, boutiques, and cafes.
Head to Hiroshima to discover more about its efforts in promoting world peace.
