Landing in Tokyo…

You’re greeted with an array of sights and sounds, every as overwhelming and attractive as the subsequent. How have you learnt what to do and the place to go?

The Majestic Japan tour takes care of that downside. Beginning and ending in Japan’s capital, alongside the way in which you’ll eat meals in a wide range of completely different eating places — some fancy, some extra conventional — go to the traditionally stunning Kanazawa (to scratch that Samurai itch) meet an actual Geisha in Kyoto and calm down in a well-known scorching spring city at Kinosaki.

The attractive gardens of Kanazawa.

It’s so arduous to select one, however Kanazawa is such a stunning metropolis that appears like a murals at each nook! There’s such a wealthy historical past of conventional arts and crafts and a few of the most stunning gardens Japan has to supply. Plus some merely gorgeous gardens.

There’s a bustling market with amazingly recent seafood straight from the Sea of Japan. Anytime I go to Kanazawa, I do know I’m in for a feast for the eyes and a full abdomen of scrumptious meals.

What’s your favorite expertise?

Assembly with a katana specialist is one thing for the bucket checklist. Studying the craft up shut from an actual knowledgeable, and attending to dwell out your samurai fantasy? Priceless.

The journey as much as Amanohashidate Sandbar is an enchanting expertise, particularly contemplating how completely different it’s in comparison with the hustle and bustle of the cities. You may’t beat that view, and it’s the very best probability to get to work together with locals in a extra intimate setting.

The place’s finest to eat?

Regardless of all of the implausible high-end eating you get on this tour (and there are some scrumptious meals available), my absolute must-try could be at an Izakaya (interprets to “stay-drink-place.” Principally, a spot to seize a drink, settle in, and get comfy) in Kanazawa, referred to as Aguri.

As soon as a small Japanese townhouse, this little gem tucked into the again streets of the Nagamachi district is now a contemporary, inventive, gourmands paradise. They spotlight native substances ready fantastically and I stay up for going again each season to see what new creations are on the menu. Yum!

There’s just one lodging I’ve visited, the place you possibly can chat together with your group tour members, all donned in yukata (kimono), whereas sitting by the fireside, and sipping on champagne, and that’s on the Hakone Hyatt Regency.

It’s actually an oasis for rest. You’ve acquired the implausible frequent space, scorching spring baths, and even a cheerful hour. The rooms are large, too — you may do a cartwheel in them (not saying you must…but it surely’s rattling spacious).

Is there something for the night time owl on this journey?

Sure! In our first cease in Tokyo, we’re fortunate sufficient to be staying proper subsequent to one in all my favorite yokocho (slender, lantern-lit alleyways with small izakaya pubs & eating places).

Backstreet eats — a standard yokocho

Yurakucho Sanchoku Inshokugai has an fascinating mixture of meals from completely different areas in Japan. You may take a culinary journey by way of Japan in a single small setting, when you’re intelligent with the menus. I like to point out folks the ocean grapes from Okinawan and Utsunomiya’s well-known gyoza!
