Cherry Blossom Festival Japan: The Cherry Blossom Flowering Tidings begins in the Southern Part of Japan (Fukuoka) and moves north toward the middle Japan (Osaka, Kyoto, Tokyo). It then continues North towards Sapporo. Our tour starts in the Middle of Japan (Tokyo) and heads South. Late March departures will be in Japan during the festival times, and at some point along the tour pax may observe some of the festivities.

Travel Japan with OAT and discover the country you’ve always dreamed of, an Asian land both modern and ancient … where a colorful Shinto festival winds its way past neon lights and Tokyo skyscrapers … a modern bullet train speeds past a farmer tending his rice paddy … a well-dressed businessman stops in a Buddhist temple to light incense … majestic Mount Fuji provides a beautiful backdrop for Hakone, where locals and travelers alike relax in volcanic hot springs.

Join us as we explore more than 2,000 years of Japanese history and culture, from ultra-modern Tokyo through the former imperial capital of Kyoto, and all the way back to Kanazawa’s unique samurai architecture. Along the way, we’ll visit local markets and craft workshops, partake in a traditional tea ceremony, and travel by rail just as the Japanese do. Welcome to Japan—OAT style.

DAY 1 - Depart U.S.

Depart the U.S. today on your overnight flight to Tokyo, Japan.

DAY 2 - Arrive Tokyo, Japan

Arrive at the Tokyo airport in the late afternoon or early evening today. An OAT representative will greet us at the airport and assist with the transfer to our hotel in Tokyo, where we'll meet our OAT Trip Leader and fellow travelers, including those who arrived early for the optional Tokyo pre-trip extension.
OVERNIGHT: Hotel JAL City Tamachi Tokyo or similar

DAY 3 - Discover Tokyo

Today, we'll have breakfast at our hotel, followed by a briefing about our upcoming days in Japan. Then, we set out to explore fascinating and frenetic Tokyo on a tour that takes us to some of its most famous sites. We'll enter the seventh-century Asakusa Kannon Temple, which—according to legend—was founded after two brothers fished the Kannon statue out of the Sumida River. They threw the statue back in the river over and over, but it always returned to them, so they built the temple to house it forever.

We'll pass by the Imperial Palace—which still serves as the home to the emperor of Japan—on our way to the Ginza district, famous for its high-class shops and glitzy galleries. Following our explorations here, we'll have time for lunch on our own before we visit Yasukuni Shrine, a memorial completed in 1869 to honor the 2.5 million Japanese people who have died in war. While its name literally translates to “Peace of the Country,” Yasukuni became one of Japan’s most controversial sites in 1979 when 14 class-A war criminals were enshrined here.

Later, we’ll return to our hotel for time at leisure. Perhaps you'll get an overview of Tokyo's history at the massive Edo Tokyo Museum, or stroll the streets of Old Tokyo. We'll regroup this evening as we gather for a Welcome Dinner at a local restaurant.
OVERNIGHT: Hotel JAL City Tamachi Tokyo or similar

DAY 4 - Travel overland to Hakone • Japanese language lesson

We start our day with breakfast at the hotel, then board a motorcoach for the trip to Hakone, located about 50 miles west of Tokyo. As we drive, our Trip Leader will lead a discussion on language, giving us a lesson on practical Japanese that will help us in our explorations. We'll stop for lunch at a local restaurant, then ascend halfway up the slopes of Mount Fuji by bus (weather permitting), enjoying a scenic drive around this iconic, snowcapped mountain.

Afterward, we resume our journey to Hakone, arriving in late afternoon. After checking into our hotel, the rest of the day is at leisure. If you wish, you can try bathing in a Japanese onsen (hot spring) before we enjoy a Japanese banquet-style dinner at our hotel.
OVERNIGHT: Hotel Kagetsuen or similar

DAY 5 - Hakone • Cruise Ashinoko Lake • Visit Hakone Open-Air Museum

We start our day in Hakone with breakfast at our hotel, then embark on a tour of this scenic city. Blessed with a beautiful volcanic setting, Hakone is beloved by the Japanese for its hot-spring resorts, mountains, lakes, and historical sites. We begin by cruising Lake Ashi from Kojiri to Moto-Hakone, where, weather permitting, you will have tremendous views of majestic Mount Fuji. Then, on the shores of Lake Ashi, we’ll visit the Narukawa Art Museum, which displays countless examples of traditional Japanese paintings that owner Minoru Narukawa has collected in the past 20 years.

After lunch at a local restaurant, we’ll visit Hamamatsuya, a workshop specializing in wooden handcrafts. Here you can see the creation of the elaborate woodwork of Hakone Yosegi Zaiku, a special product of Hakone featuring complex inlaid designs. Later, we’ll continue our discovery of Hakone’s artistic culture by visiting the Hakone Open-Air Museum, a collection of about 100 works strategically set in 70,000 square meters of green space.

We’ll return to our hotel for dinner this evening.

Please note: Alternative activities may be substituted for some of the visits described above depending on weather conditions.
OVERNIGHT: Hotel Kagetsuen or similar

DAY 6 - Bullet train to Nagoya • Express train to Kanazawa

We have breakfast at our hotel and then transfer to the train station, where we board our first bullet train—the legendary high-speed train service pioneered by the Japanese.

The Japanese call this train the shinkansen. It is one of the world's finest quick-transit trains, and still amongst the fastest trains in the world, traveling at speeds of up to 200 mph. For boarding, be prepared to stand at a precise location indicated by your coach and seat accommodations. The train stops exactly where indicated and sure enough, your coach is right in front of you. Our trip on the bullet train takes us from Odawara to Nagoya. Lunch is on your own today and we suggest doing as the Japanese do—buy a packed lunch (called eki-ben) in the station and enjoy it on the train. Eki-ben lunches are one of the attractions of train travel in Japan.

We'll then board the Limited Express train for our ride to Kanazawa, enjoying a view of Japan's rolling countryside and modern cityscapes along our route. We arrive in the afternoon and check into our hotel. Dinner tonight is at a local restaurant.
OVERNIGHT: Kanazawa Miyako Hotel or similar

DAY 7 - Kanazawa • Visit Omicho Market

Explore Japan and tour a sake brewery

We have breakfast at our hotel and then begin our exploration of Kanazawa with a guided tour of this historic city.

Between the 16th and 18th centuries, Kanazawa was a prosperous castle town in the domain of Kaga, ruled by the Maeda Family, and it has been one of the cultural centers of Japan ever since. Located on the coast of the Japan Sea, Kanazawa was spared much of the destruction that World War II brought to the country. It is famous today for its unique architecture, its exquisite Kaga-style handcrafts—including silk-dyeing and lacquerware—its delicate regional cuisine, and the Kenrokuen Garden, one of the most beautiful in Japan. We start our tour with a morning visit to this garden, which was opened to the public in 1875 and is one of the most visited garden spots in all of Japan.

After the garden, we'll visit one of the many houses of Kanazawa where the samurai—Japan's famed class of noble warriors—once lived. Several former samurai homes still stand on winding streets, and many are still in use as residences. We'll enjoy a closer look at what constitutes samurai style when we explore the 18th-century Terashima House, home of a samurai who was also a painter. Later we'll tour the Higashi-Chaya district with its old wooden structures. We'll also visit Kaikaro, a 190-year-old ochaya—a teahouse where geishas perform. Here, we'll admire the teahouse's decor, which is a true fusion between modern and ancient Japan.

Then, following lunch at a local restaurant, we visit the Omicho Market (closed Sundays and public holidays). This 300-year-old market, known locally as Kanazawa's Kitchen, is a very busy gathering place, and brims with exceptionally fresh vegetables, fruit, and fish offered for sale to households and to private restaurants. By browsing the many stalls here, we can get a good idea of what the local diet is like and see the range of foods that create the local cuisine. We might see some of the traditional specialties of the region, such as fish pickled in rice bran, fresh crab, Kaga lotus root, seaweed, and a variety of sweet treats.

After walking through the busy market, we'll uncover more local traditions by visiting a gold-leaf workshop. These thin sheets of gold have been produced in Kanazawa since the 16th century, and are used to decorate everything from handcrafts to Buddhist alters. In the workshop, we'll learn more about how gold leaf is made and what significance it still holds in Japanese culture before returning to our hotel. Dinner tonight is on your own.
OVERNIGHT: Kanazawa Miyako Hotel or similar

DAY 8 - Day at leisure • Optional Shirakawa-go & Gokayama tour OPTIONAL TOUR

Discover Japanese mountain villages on a guided tour

Today you can spend a day at leisure in Kanazawa, making your own discoveries in this historic city.

Or you can join us for an optional full-day excursion to Shirakawa-go and Gokayama, mountain villages—and UNESCO World Heritage Sites—in the forested countryside outside of Kanazawa. Because of their relative isolation, these areas developed independently of Japanese society, resulting in a unique culture and lifestyle. In addition to creating their own dances, festivals, and traditions, residents developed a distinctive architectural style known as gassho-zukuri. Characterized by steeply pitched thatched roofs that are both striking and elegant, these dwellings are considered to be some of the most efficient farmhouses in Japan—and we'll discover why as we explore the houses of Ainokura this morning. Then we'll visit a workshop to see how washi—a thick, fibrous paper made from mulberry bark—is created. Afterward, we'll head to Murakami House, which was built in 1578 and is the oldest ghasso-style house in the area. During our visit here, we'll learn more about the history and culture of Gokayama, enjoy a traditional dance performance, and savor a traditional lunch of soba (buckwheat noodles) at a local restaurant. This afternoon, we transfer to Shirakawa-go, where we'll learn the art of mochitsuki, or rice-cake making, with members of the local community before returning to our hotel.

Dinner is on your own tonight.
OVERNIGHT: Kanazawa Miyako Hotel or similar

DAY 9 - Tea with local family • Train to Kyoto

Encounter local Japanese culture at a Home Hosted Meal

Following breakfast at your Kanazawa hotel, we set off to visit a local family for tea and to get a firsthand glimpse of Japanese life at home. This is a wonderful opportunity to talk with a family and experience a bit of their daily routine. After this unique opportunity, we'll enjoy lunch together before we transfer to the train station and board a train bound for Kyoto.

Kyoto was Japan’s imperial capital through the eighth to 19th centuries. It remains an important cultural center—and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site—and we’ll have five full days to explore its many wonders. We arrive at our hotel in the late afternoon, take a short orientation walk around the neighborhood, and enjoy dinner at a local restaurant tonight.
OVERNIGHT: Hearton Hotel or similar

DAY 10 - Explore Kyoto • Discover Kinkakuji

Among Kyoto's many wonders are some of Japan's most impressive Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, and we'll have a chance to discover one after breakfast, as we visit Kinkakuji Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The striking architecture of Kinkakuji, also known as the Temple of the Golden Pavilion, dates from 1397, when it was built by the third shogun (military commander) of the Ashikaga Shogunate. The reflection of the pavilion on the water of the adjacent pond produces a breathtakingly beautiful and world-famous view.

Next, we visit Nijo Castle, which was constructed between 1601 and 1603. The castle, shrines, and 17 temples here are designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although meant to represent power, it appears more a royal estate than a military post fortified with weapons. It was built by Tokugawa Ieyasu, founder of the Tokugawa shogunate, and became a meeting place for the shoguns. The largest building on the grounds is Ninomaru Palace, intentionally built with squeaky floors so an intruder would be heard advancing through the room.

After lunch at a local restaurant, we continue on to Sanjusangendo Hall, built in the twelfth century and containing an impressive 1,001 statues of the thousand-handed Kannon, the Buddhist goddess of mercy. Finally, we explore Kiyomizu Temple, another UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its “leap of faith” veranda and wooden terraces once used for sacred dances. Resting at the foot of the Higashiyama Mountains, this temple—which dates back to AD 778—offers a sweeping view of Kyoto and a spring whose waters are believed by some to have a curative quality.

This evening, we return to our hotel and enjoy dinner on our own.
OVERNIGHT: Hearton Hotel or similar

DAY 11 - Day at leisure • Optional Nara & Fushimi tour OPTIONAL TOUR

See two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Nara

After breakfast, today is free for you to explore Kyoto on your own.

Or you can choose to join us on an optional tour to Nara and Fushimi. This excursion takes us to the distinctive city of Nara, which was the capital of Japan before Kyoto. We will visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Nara: Todaiji Temple and Kasuga Shinto Shrine. As we approach Todaiji Temple's Daibutsu-den Hall, you will first be impressed by its massive size, as it is the largest wooden building in the world. It is also one of the major historic temples in Japan and contains valuable artifacts. Here, we'll admire the Daibutsu—an impressive 52-foot Buddha statue. As we continue to explore Todaiji, we'll likely notice another charming feature of its park area: its tame, free-roaming deer, which were traditionally regarded as the messengers of the Shinto god Kasuga. If you want a close-up introduction to them, you can purchase shika senbei (special biscuits) to feed them, but be prepared to be very popular with these lovely creatures when you offer them food.

We'll also visit the Kasuga Shinto Shrine, which dates back to AD 768. Here, we'll stroll along the shrine’s wooded paths, admiring its impressive collection of 3,000 stone lanterns. After lunch at a local restaurant in Nara, we'll continue to the lovely town of Fushimi, where we’ll visit one of the most popular shrines in Japan: Fushimi-Inari.

This evening, you can seek out a local restaurant to have dinner on your own.
OVERNIGHT: Hearton Hotel or similar

DAY 12 - Visit Buddhist temple • Optional Japanese Traditional Music tour OPTIONAL TOUR

After breakfast at our hotel, we'll depart for a day of activities that aim to give us a closer look into the lives of the Japanese people. First, we'll take a boat to Senkoji Temple, which is supported in part by funds from Grand Circle Foundation. At this 400-year-old temple, we'll have a chance to practice Zen meditation.

Zen is a branch of Buddhist thought that believes divine wisdom resides in each person; meditation techniques are used to reveal this inner divine nature. Typically meditation consists of simple sitting and breathing practices that are meant to calm the mind and allow the practitioner's focus to shift away from the mundane. We'll be in expert hands for our session, under the guidance of a Buddhist monk.

While at the temple, we'll also explore another aspect of Zen influence by partaking in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, called sado. To create the actual beverage, a powdered tea called matcha is put in a teacup, covered with hot water, and whipped with a bamboo whisk until it foams slightly. But the significance of the tea goes far beyond the tea preparation; the ceremony is a traditional art form that exhibits the Zen ideals of the beauty of simplicity and mindfulness of movement. An integral part of the ceremony is the appreciation of the aesthetics of the place where the tea is prepared and enjoyed. The ceremony is given special meaning by the deep sincerity with which the host prepares the tea.

This afternoon, we'll bid sayonara to Senkoji and journey to Kameoka, a city that was once the agricultural hub for the former imperial capital of Kyoto. Here, we'll dive into the country’s rich gastronomical traditions by learning how to make a traditional Japanese dish—perhaps sushi or onigiri—with the help of locals.

After a satisfying homemade lunch, we'll return to Kyoto, where you'll have the rest of the afternoon to relax independently and enjoy dinner on your own. Or round out today's discoveries with an optional tour that celebrates traditional Japanese music and architecture. We'll travel by taxi to a performer's house to meet a musician couple who still practice on traditional instruments. Some of these, like the three-stringed shamisen, have histories dating back to the 16th century. We'll learn about the history of this art form before being treated to a brief concert—perhaps you'll try out an instrument yourself. Then we'll depart by taxi for the Higashiyama district, in the heart of Kyoto's Gion Corner, where travelers can take an evening walk along charming cobblestone streets that evoke the romance of old Kyoto with their traditional wooden buildings. We'll stroll past shops, merchants' houses, and ryokan (Japanese-style inns) before stopping for an included dinner at a local restaurant.
OVERNIGHT: Hearton Hotel or similar

DAY 13 - Kyoto • Day at leisure • Optional Arashiyama tour OPTIONAL TOUR

Today, continue exploring Kyoto on your own. This spiritual city is home to a tremendous number of religious sites—nearly 300 Shinto shrines and 1,700 Buddhist temples—for you to discover. Or, for a look at some of the artwork these ancient religions have inspired, you can view Shinto and Buddhist art at the Hosomi Art Museum. And if pottery is your interest, you can browse an enormous selection of bowls, vases, sake cups, and other items fired by local potters at the Kyoto Ceramics Center.

Or join our optional tour to Arashiyama. On this excursion, we'll take a walking tour of two of the most beautiful gardens in this region of Japan, renowned for its bamboo groves and Togetsukyo Bridge spanning the Oi River. We'll gather after breakfast for a walk down to the train station and arrive in the Arashiyama neighborhood, where our first stop is Tenryuji Temple. The primary temple of the Rinzai school of Zen, it was originally built in 1339 and has been destroyed by wars and fires and rebuilt many times. Most of the structures here now date from the late 19th century, but the exquisite Zen garden—which includes a large pond, elevated rock groupings, and delicate cherry trees—is many centuries old. Next we'll see Okochi-Sanso, a lovely garden located on top of a hill, providing a peaceful glimpse of the quiet Kyoto environs. Here you will be served Japanese tea and cake. We'll return to our hotel in the early afternoon.

Tonight enjoy a Farewell Dinner at a local restaurant.
OVERNIGHT: Hearton Hotel or similar

DAY 14 - Return to U.S. or begin post-trip extension

Today, you will fly home from Osaka on an afternoon or early evening flight.

Or, if you're continuing on our optional post-trip extension to Hiroshima, you'll transfer to this coastal city by bullet train today.

Post-trip: Hiroshima

Built on an island chain in the Ota River Delta, Hiroshima will always be remembered for the events of August 6, 1945. But in the years since, the city has rebuilt, grown, and created the Peace Memorial Park. Extend your Japanese adventure and get to know this lively international city.

It's Included:

  • Bullet train transfers from Kyoto to Hiroshima and Hiroshima to Osaka; limited express train to Kansai Airport
  • Accommodations for 3 nights in Hiroshima
  • 4 meals—3 breakfasts and 1 dinner
  • 3 small group activities
  • Services of a local O.A.T. Trip Leader
  • Gratuities for local guides, drivers, and luggage porters
  • All transfers (by public transportation)

DAY 1 Train to Hiroshima • Visit Peace Memorial Park

OVERNIGHT: New Hiroden Hotel or similar

As our main journey ends, we board a bullet train for our ride from Kyoto to Hiroshima. Upon arrival, we take an orientation walk around the neighborhood.

During the afternoon we tour historic Hiroshima, rebuilt after the devastation of August 6, 1945, and now a thriving, healthy city. As we tour Peace Memorial Park, near the very center of the area of the A-bomb blast, you will see memorials commemorating the victims of that fearful day and the ruins of a building that was less than 600 feet from the detonation. The famous A-Bomb Dome (Genbaku Dome) was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. The Peace Memorial Museum displays remnants of the bombing day and accounts of survivors, but in this park you will also see manifestations of the hope for world peace. At the Children’s Peace Memorial, people from all over the world have placed folded paper cranes as offerings for harmony on our planet.

The rest of the afternoon and evening are at leisure and dinner is on your own.

DAY 2 Hiroshima • Explore Miyajima • Visit Itsukushima Shinto Shrine

OVERNIGHT: New Hiroden Hotel or similar

After breakfast we journey first on a local train and then by ferry to Miyajima, an island that was once worshiped for its spirituality. Here Mount Misen—whose primeval forests are home to wild monkeys and deer—climbs to more than 1,700 feet and overlooks the beautiful Seto Inland Sea.

We see firsthand the grandeur of the Itsukushima Shinto Shrine, which was founded in AD 593 and is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is considered one of the finest examples in Japan of the unique Shinden architecture. The famed gate to the shrine, the otorii, rises from the seawater, its vermillion-colored pillars extending more than 40 feet above the seabed. The elegant inner shrine includes 37 buildings, while the outer shrine along the shoreline consists of 19 structures, all blending with the compelling natural beauty of the site.

We have lunch on our own in Miyajima, then take the ferry and train back to Hiroshima. After returning to our hotel, the rest of the afternoon is yours to make your own discoveries, and dinner is on our own tonight.

DAY 3 Hiroshima • Optional Islands of the Inland Sea tour OPTIONAL TOUR

OVERNIGHT: New Hiroden Hotel or similar

After breakfast, explore Hiroshima on your own, visiting sites that have particular interest for you, or learning more about the city. You can walk through the Hiroshima Castle on the Ota River delta, spend time in the Hiroshima Museum of Art, or simply relax at the Hiroshima Botanical Garden or Shukkeien Garden.

Or join us for an optional excursion to the Islands of the Inland Sea. The islands of the Inland Sea—the body of water separating the main Japanese islands of Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu—are cherished by the Japanese because of their beauty and the traditions they have maintained. And we enjoy a closer look at these islands today, delighting in spectacular views from the bridges that have only recently (since the 1980s) linked them to the mainland as we drive to Omishima Island, where we'll visit Tatara Shimanami Park and enjoy a magnificent view of the Inland Sea.

Then, we'll continue to Ikuchijima Island. Here we visit the Ikuo Hirayama Museum of Art, which displays many works by world-famous Japanese painter Ikuo Hirayama, who was born and spent his boyhood on this island. Having experienced the tragedy of the A-bomb at Hiroshima, Hirayama created many works on the theme of peace. We also see the dazzling architecture of the Kosanji Temple, which was built by the Buddhist priest Kozo Kosanji (1891-1970) to honor his mother, and took more than 30 years to build. On the hill above the temple area is Miraishin no Oka (The Heights of Eternal Hope for the Future). This white marble sculpture garden, created by world-renowned artist Kazuto Kuetani, caps the entire hill. After an included lunch, we depart for Mihara by hydrofoil, and then take a return train to Hiroshima. We'll arrive back at our hotel in the early evening.

Tonight we gather for a Farewell Dinner at a local restaurant.

DAY 4 Hiroshima • Return to U.S.

MEALS: B After breakfast at our hotel, we transfer by train to the airport in Osaka for our flight home this afternoon. We cross the International Date Line during flight, arriving back in the U.S. on the same day.
