We provide two types of tours: Plan A to enjoy beautiful sceneries in Japan, Plan B to learn Japanese history and culture.
The plan for customers to enjoy beautiful sceneries of Japan, from superb mountains which change the color from season to season, the sound of a rushing creek, to awe-inspiring and breathtaking shrines and castles.
The Tohoku region is known for its nature, panoramic views, soothing hot springs and local dishes. Don’t miss the contrast of colors made by the deep red of Gejo Bridge and the pink of cherry blossoms in spring.
Visiting Hida Takayama in Gifu where the old cityscape is still preserved and enjoyed, Kenrokuen Garden which is one of the three great Japanese gardens in Ishikawa, and Sadogashima in Niigata where fantastical views such as a huge cave and a cove are seen.
In the Kanto area, we show you Ushiku Daibutsu VR, the gigantic stature of 120 meters located in Ushiku, Ibaraki. You will also enjoy watching 150 sheep marching in Mother Farm, Chiba.
From the Kinki region, Himeji Castle, the UNESCO world heritage in Hyogo Prefecture, appears. Walk around the castle with VR and feel like you are time-tripping to the Edo period.
Tsunoshima Bridge in Yamaguchi Prefecture is over the ocean so clear that it changes the color by the sunlight. It is often featured in Japanese commercials for its beauty; enjoy the view.
The ocean, the mountains, the sunshine…the Shikoku region is blessed by nature. Spend a romantic moment on Angel Road, the road made of sand which appears only twice a day in Kagawa. Enjoy the thrill of Kazura Bridge in Tokushima, the suspension bridge that shakes as you walk.
The tour ends in Kyushu; you will visit the grand Peace Statue which reminds us of the tragedy of the atomic bombs as well as the importance of peace, and Koke Musu Mori (Mossy Forest) in Kagoshima, where the movie “Princess Mononoke” was inspired from.
history and culture
This is the tour where you get to visit the areas known for ancient myths, the places which played a crucial role in the history of Japan, the festivals and traditional events in each region; you will learn about the history and culture of Japan.
One of the most famous events of Hokkaido is Sapporo Snow Festival held at the beginning of February every year. Experience the atmosphere of this grand event by watching snow sculptures and unique cosplayers.
Many old traditions still remain in the Tohoku region. We introduce various cultures, old and new, from this region, including “Namahage” (a demon-like figure in Japanese folklore) in Akita.
There are a lot of traditional buildings left in the Chubu region. You will have a tour of valuable places such as Higashi Chaya in Ishikawa, which still keeps the atmosphere of a tea house in the Edo period, and the historic villages of Shirakawa-Go in Gifu with houses made with a steep rafter roof. Enjoy the traditional scenery.
You can find many places where you can feel the history and the culture of Japan in the Kanto region, as well. One of them is Naritasan Shinshoji Temple in Chiba, also known as “the Acalanatha of Narita”, since its opening in 940. This temple is popular among foreigners too.
When it comes to the Kinki region, many would think of Japanese comedy culture and local dishes, but you can find a lot of famous temples there too. Don’t miss mysterious and spiritual places such as Hasedera Temple in Nara, one of the most famous sacred places worshipping Kannon (Bodhisattva).
The Chugoku area is especially known for spiritual places. Visit Izumi Taisha Grand Shrine, known as the “origin of the myths”, and learn how it was built.
Speaking of Shikoku, you might think of “ohenro san” (pilgrims) who visit the Shikoku’s eighty-eight sacred temples which worship Koubou Daishi, the founder of the Shingon sect. Watch the first temple which “ohenro san” visit, as well as Konpiragu, the temple known for a long series of stone steps leading to Gohongu.
One of the cultures of Hakata, Fukuoka is “yatai” (food stalls). The flight ends with the scenery of the Kyushu region, including “yatai” and the Glover residence in Nagasaki, which was registered as a world heritage in 2015.
