ItineraryShow/Hide all days
- Day 1
Welcome to Japan!
After you arrive at the airport and clear the customs, your airport assistant is holding a welcome board with your name. He/She will be ready to answer your questions about this country and guide you to board the airport shuttle bus for your hotel in Tokyo. Since the assistant will not escort you to the hotel, you will need to check in by yourself. The rest of the day will be free for your own leisure.
- Day 2
In the morning, your private guide will meet you at your hotel and escort you to do the full-day Tokyo city tour by public transportation.
First, visit the famous Meiji Shrine, a quiet place hidden inside the busy city. Enter the shrine through the huge Torri gate and enjoy the peace as well as its culture and history. Head to East Gardens of the Imperial Palace later. You can roam around the gardens to find the stone walls surrounding the palace, listen to your guide share the history behind them, and take nice pictures of the Double Bridge. Afterward, you will experience a tea ceremony in a tea house.
In the afternoon, tour the Senso-ji Temple, the oldest and most famous temple in Tokyo. Finally, spend some time shopping at Nakamise Street.
- Day 3
After breakfast, be met and transferred to Mt. Fuji by your English-speaking driving guide around 3 hours. You will arrive at Mt. Fuji 5th Station, the highest point that the car can reach. The nearby observatory overlooks the Fuji Five Lakes area below.
After that, take a cruise on Lake Kawaguchi and soak in its fabulous view, mountains and lush greenery. If you are lucky enough, you may see the beautiful reflection of Mt. Fuji over the water. If you like, hop on the Kachi Kachi Ropeway to the top of Mt.Fuji for a panorama view of Mt. Fuji instead of taking the cruise. Near the lake is a historic village of Iyashi no Sato, where you can enjoy some leisure time before returning to Tokyo.
- Day 4
Today, drive to Nikko (about 2.5 hours) for a full-day exploration by a private car with an English-speaking driving guide. First, you will tour the Nikko Toshogu Shrine, famous for its lavish decorations and ornate details. Continue to visit Rinno-ji.
In the afternoon, pass by the Lake Chuzenji and enjoy the Kegon Falls. The main falls had a height of approximately 97 meters, leaking through the many cracks between the mountain and the lava flows. After the tour, drive back to Tokyo.
- Day 5
It's free time before your home-bound flight.
