Description: This is our standard version of the "Japan Golden Route" 7-day itinerary. This routing is designed to cater to a wide variety of interests from culture, architecture, nature, Onsen spa baths, and traditional Japanese cuisine to 21st century sights. Beginning your trip from Tokyo, the capital city of Japan, our qualified guide(additional fee required) and driver will help you navigate Tokyo's cultural landmarks, fashionable neighborhoods and diverse shopping districts. We recommend that you stay for a night at Lake Kawaguchi and Takayama city at a Japanese onsen ryokan (traditional inn), where you can unwind in the hot springs (onsen) and dine on gourmet kaiseki cuisine. At Lake Kawaguchi, you will be able to catch a good view of Mt.Fuji. You will travel further and spend a night at Takayama city and will be visiting Shirakawa-go village, a UNESCO world heritage site, famous for their traditional gassho-zukuri farmhouses, some of which are more than 250 years old. You will also spend a full day in the ancient city of Kyoto and Nara, where you will have exclusive access to the city's gardens, temples, shrines, and specialty shops. For your final stop, you will be stopping in Osaka before you catch your flight out of Kansai Airport on a night flight or a morning flight the following morning.
