We will now drive by IMPERIAL PALACE GARDENS – Home to the Emperor, the Imperial Palace and the Gardens of the Imperial Palace are one of the most iconic sites in Japan. Nestled within beautiful parkland, the Imperial Palace feels far removed from the sights and sounds of Tokyo’s nearby thriving center. The palace is surrounded by large gardens, which are divided into the Inner Palace Grounds and the Imperial Palace East Gardens.

We will now visit ASAKUSA – It is known as the location of the Sensō-ji, a Buddhist temple dedicated to the bodhisattva Kannon. It is simply one of the most vibrant districts in the capital. Overflowing with restaurants, traditional shops, ancient temples, and historic shopping streets, this well-known spot is a famous destination among tourists.

Next to Asakusa, we will visit NAKAMISE STREET – Bustling shopping street connecting the main gate of Sensoji Temple & the main hall. Get a feel for old-school Tokyo at one of Japan’s oldest shopping streets.

Time to explore the most famous places with CHERRY BLOSSOM BLOOMING near MEGURO RIVER – The Meguro River cherry blossoms are the most famous area in Tokyo to see the budding beauties. Relax under riverside cherry blossoms in hip Nakameguro. Celebrate the arrival of spring at Meguro River—perhaps the best spot in Tokyo to view the sakura cherry blossoms. The sakura trees turn the riverside promenade into shades of white and pink.

In the evening, we will have a session with a SAKE MAKER & DINNER – Discover the world of sake at this unique sake-tasting session in Tokyo. Learn from an expert sake sommelier (wine steward) and pair sake with Japanese snacks. Explore the history, process & taste of Japan’s famous drink. Followed by Japanese Dinner.

Time to relax!

Our trip to Japan won’t be that rewarding without the ONSEN EXPERIENCE – The Japanese emphasized the virtues of “naked communication”. Onsens are an important part of Japanese culture. It is a natural hot spring fuelled by volcanic activity and the resort atmosphere that has emerged around many such springs. (Note – Keep your own swimming costumes to avoid the rentals).

We will now visit PHILOSOPHER’S PATH for Cherry Blossom witnessing – The Philosopher’s Path is a pleasant stone path through the northern part of Kyoto. The path follows a canal that is lined by hundreds of cherry trees. It is a gorgeous place to go for a stroll when the cherry trees are in full bloom. Pink blossoms hang down over a narrow, cobblestone path, following close beside a gentle flowing canal at the base of the Higashiyama (Eastern Mountains).

We will now visit the GION AREA – It is Kyoto’s most famous geisha district, located around Shijo Avenue between Yasaka Shrine in the east and the Kamo River in the west.
