The tour kicks off in Tokyo, Japan’s modern capital city, where shrines and stone lanterns are scattered among glittering skyscrapers. A half-day tour will take you to the city’s best-known landmarks, including the Imperial Palace, once inhabited by samurai warriors in the 15th century. Today it’s the residence of the emperor of Japan. Suggested activities include:

  • Senso-ji Temple: Located at the end of the famous Nakamise Dori shopping street, this 7th-century temple is Japan’s oldest. It honors the Buddhist deity of mercy and compassion.
  • Take something home: Shop in the Ginza district, one of the world’s most luxurious retail areas.
  • Where you’ll stay: 2 nights at Shinjuku Washington Hotel or similar accommodations

Days 4–5: Mount Fuji

In the morning of Day 4, you’ll board a bus to Mount Fuji that climbs Japan’s iconic volcano to a lookout station at 7,550 feet above sea level. Here are some suggested activities:

  • A scenic cruise on Lake Ashi is included with this deal. You’ll sail out onto this crater lake for spectacular views of Mount Fuji.
  • Hakone Ropeway: Take in the scenery as this aerial tram soars above hot springs, the blue waters of Lake Ashi, and volcanic fumes of Owakudani.
  • Where you’ll stay: 1 night at Route Inn or similar accommodations

Days 5–7: Kyoto

Kyoto was Japan’s capital for 1,000 years, and its glorious past is honored in its thousands of monuments and UNESCO World Heritage sites. During your stay here, you’ll visit some of these landmarks and sample Japan’s finest cuisine. You can also take optional tours of Nara and Osaka ($80), and the Kyoto-to-Tokyo bullet train ($180). A few things to see and do:

  • Kyoto’s most famous temple: Kinkaku-ji or “the Golden Pavilion” is covered in gold leaf, casting an iridescent reflection on the surrounding water.
  • The Kyoto International Manga Museum pays tribute to the country’s zealous comic-book culture. You’re encouraged to read a selection from the rows of wooden bookshelves.
  • Optional Japanese dinner with traditional plates of raw fish and potted meats, and a Geisha-style performance ($99) at the Gion Corner
  • Where you’ll stay: 2 nights at New Miyako Hotel, Kyoto Royal Hotel & Spa, or similar accommodations

Days 7–8: Tokyo

Those who opt to take the bullet train from Kyoto to Tokyo will have more free time to explore Kyoto. Everyone else will return to Tokyo on an included bus trip.

  • Optional tour: Tsukiji Fish Market, the world’s largest and busiest fish market, hosts a tour every morning at 9 a.m.
