OVERVIEW

Welcome to Japan! We recommend this itinerary if this is your first trip to Japan.
Immerse yourself in old Japanese culture (such as the Samurai History, Traditional Performing Arts like Kabuki, or Sumo) and new Japanese culture (such as Fashion, Anime and Manga) in Tokyo, the capital of Japan. With a whopping 38 Million people, Tokyo is considered the largest urban agglomeration in the world. After your stay in Tokyo, we will head to Hokkaido: Japan's northernmost island and Japan's last frontier.
Relax in Hokkaido’s famous Onsen, experience the beautiful nature, visit some of the nice cities and of course, delicious food each day. The best part is: fun and satisfaction is guaranteed any season of the year.

  1. DAY

    Tokyo Airport(Haneda,Narita) - Tokyo

    Upon arrival at Tokyo Airport, one of our representatives will be waiting to assist with transport into the city (boarding the right train or finding the appropriate shared shuttle bus to the hotel.)The rest of the day is at leisure.
    Please enjoy the city of Tokyo at night on the first night spent in Japan. The shining night city will surely fascinate you.

  2. DAY

    Tokyo

    Starting with the Edo-style Hamarikyu Garden and its teahouse, Tokyo offers you tasteful seasons and experiences. We will cruise along Sumida River towards the Edo-fashioned Asakusa area, to explore Nakamise-dori, Senso-ji Temple, tempura house, and so on. The day ends with the visit to the Shinto sanctuary, Meiji Shrine. Individual shopping in the nearby Omotesando and Harajuku is allowed afterwards.

  3. DAY

    Tokyo

    Your entire day is dedicated to exploring Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea, where your dreams come true. A 1-day passport grants you unlimited access. Themed attractions, characters, parades and gourmet in the two wonder-parks would promise you a day full of entertainment. It will surely be an unforgettable experience for children, but parents can enjoy their time too, of course with some of the rides but how about at one of the wonderful lounge bars?

  4. DAY

    Tokyo - Hokkaido(Noboribetsu)

    Today we will head to Hokkaido by plane, the flight takes only about 1.5h, but the contrast of scenery is quite impressive. Departing Tokyo you see a never ending city, landing in Hokkaido you see never ending forests. Hokkaido is Japan's Nature Island.
    After your arrival in Hokkaido, head for the most famous and most popular Onsen Town of Hokkaido: Noboribetsu.
    7 different types of Hot Springs and a gorgeous dinner are waiting for you! Come and experience what true relaxation means!

  5. DAY

    Wake up and take a walk through “jigokudani hell valley”, with steam rising up from the earth’s core. Make your own “Mochi” rice cakes, and enjoy a home-made Japanese lunch.
    Your destination for today is Hakodate. Hakodate is an old port town in southern Hokkaido, with many beautiful old churches and warehouses.
    Enjoy the night view from Mt. Hakodate, which is said to be the most beautiful in all over Japan. Don’t forget your camera!

  6. DAY

    Hakodate - Lake Toya

    Start your day with a breakfast at the Morning Fish Market of Hakodate. You can even try squid fishing! After the excitement, relax with a Japanese Tea Ceremony, and start your drive to Lake Toya. Enjoy the amazing view over the lake from the peak of Mt.Usu, an active volcano.
    Hotels in Toya have wonderful baths with a view over the lake. In Summer you can enjoy fireworks over the lake from the bath, and in winter you can enjoy snow falling on your head while your body is nice and warm, a wonderful experience.

  7. DAY

    Lake Toya - Otaru

    Today is your chance to dive into the great countryside of Hokkaido. Enjoy making ice cream with fresh milk, then drive through the fields around Mt.Yotei ("Yoteizan" in Japanese) . Enjoy a Dutch Oven lunch with delicious produce, and stop by for nature’s fresh drinking water flowing from the mountains at Kyogoku Springs(Kyogoku Fukidashi Water Park).
    Tonight you will stay in the nostalgic port town of Otaru. Old bank buildings and warehouses are still left from the times when this town thrived of herring fishing.
    Feel free to walk around in the evening. Many buildings are lit up and gas lanterns along the canal make the town very romantic.
