TOKYO, KYOTO, AND OKINAWA: 10 Days, 8 Nights, from $2899

0.00

Flight by Singapore Airlines included. Starting in Tokyo, its compact districts teemed with a sharply dressed populace, exotic cuisine, and of course, garish lights everywhere. While Tokyo always seems to have one foot in the future, Kyoto does its best to hold onto the past. Here you’ll find the Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, and zen rock gardens of archetypal Japan, as well as the geisha and kabuki actors carrying its cultural legacy. From the main island, hop on a flight to Okinawa for a tropical retreat and discover their distinct culture, music and cooking.

*Starting price listed is an example of Los Angeles departure.

ITINERARY:

DAY 1- DEPART HOMETOWN

DAY 2- ARRIVE IN TOKYO

Arrive in Tokyo and go to the Grand Prince New Takanawa, your home for the next three nights. The remainder of the day is yours to spend as you please.

DAY 3- TOKYO CITY TOUR (B)

Daily breakfast will be available at the hotel. Our tour will start with a panoramic cityscape from the main observation platform of the Tokyo Tower—Japan’s version of the Eiffel Tower. From there, you’ll head to the Meiji Shrine, a Shinto shrine built in the old style of all-wood construction amid a peaceful forest. Drive by the National Diet Building on the way to the Imperial Palace and its beautiful East Garden. An inner moat, pine trees, and 15-foot thick walls surround the 250-acre fortress—originally the Edo Castle—that the Emperor and Empress now call home. The day’s tour ends at the Ginza shopping district, where you’ll be free to explore on your own.

DAY 4- TOKYO (B)

You’ll have the whole day free to see the sights of Tokyo as you please, or perhaps join an optional tour to see one of Japan’s most iconic wonders, Mount Fuji.

DAY 5- TOKYO/KYOTO (B)

Leave Tokyo for Kyoto by shinkansen (bullet train). The rest of the day is yours to explore Kyoto.

DAY 6-KYOTO CITY TOUR (B)

Our morning tour begins at the legendary Nijo Castle—once home of the powerful Tokugawa shogunate—where the interiors are decorated with Kanō school screen paintings. You’ll move onto the Kinkaku-ji Temple, called the Golden Pavilion because its top two stories are completely covered in gold leaf. Then, you’re off to the Kyoto Imperial Palace, where you’ll gain exclusive access to the residence of Japanese emperors until the capital was moved to Tokyo in 1869. The palace closes on weekends and national holidays, in which case you’ll visit the Kitano Tenman-gū Shrine instead. Enjoy the rest of the day exploring Kyoto!

DAY 7- KYOTO/OKINAWA (B)

Check out of the hotel and take the shared transfer service to the airport for your 2 hour flight to Okinawa. Upon your arrival, you will be assisted in boarding the shuttle bus to your hotel in Okinawa. Here, the locals have a distinct language and food culture that differs from the islands of Japan to the north. Okinawa’s most famous export worldwide is the martial art of karate.

DAY 8-9- OKINAWA (B/D)

Enjoy the sea breeze at your beach front resort at leisure. Daily breakfast and dinner will be hosted by the hotel.

DAY 10-OKINAWA/NARITA (B)

Your time in Japan comes to an end as you take a shuttle back to Naha airport, then board your flight to Narita and back to the U.S.
