Best Summer Vacation Ever? Yeah, pretty much.
From fireworks and floats to towering lanterns and temple ninjas, Best of Japan combines Japan’s most popular cities with some of the year’s best festivals on an itinerary for any traveler. You’ll experience off-the-beaten-path exploring, urban shopping enclaves, and relaxing hot springs. No matter what brings you to Japan, Best of Japan is designed to help you do it all.
Comprehensive – yet customizable.
Redesigned for every kind of traveler, every step of Best of Japan is flexible to accommodate you, your family, and whoever else comes along. Besides, there’s so much to see – and our job is to make sure you do more seeing than stressing.
What do we mean? In Tokyo, you’ll learn how to make soba noodles, but then you can choose to shop for anime goodies in Akihabara or check out the “kitchen neighborhood” of Kappabashi. We’ll also have a dinner party with some friendly local sports fans, shop across Harajuku, and much, much more.
In Kansai, you can choose to ascend the steps of Fushimi Inari Shrine, or take it easy at the area’s finest cafes. Not sure what to do in Osaka between the famous cuisine, amazing city views, and Pokemon Center? Do all three – we’ll make it happen. Of course, you won’t want to miss the floats and festivities of the Gion Festival -– one of Japan’s largest and beloved by our alumni.
Finally, we head to the Japan Sea coast to see the breathtaking gardens and traditional sites of Kanazawa. You’ll be staying at a hot spring (onsen) resort, so you’ll have plenty of time to relax, swim, and sample local cuisine before we return to Tokyo for a free day there -– and an awe-inspiring fireworks display at the Adachi Ward Fireworks!
From the city to the country and back, there’s no better way to experience Japan in the summer. So grab that sunscreen and prepare for an adventure you’ll never forget!
