Lake Saiko

Fujigoko (Fuji Five Lakes) refers to the five lakes around the northern foot of Mt. Fuji: Yamanaka-ko, Kawaguchi-ko, Sai-ko, Shoji-ko, and Motosu-ko. In ancient times, lava flow from volcanic eruption of Mt. Fuji spread across the area, damming up rivers and resulting in the formation of these lakes.

Of the Five Lakes, Saiko Lake is the most quiet and remains the most unspoiled and is considered one of the best areas to observe Mt. Fuji.

Iyashi no Sato Healing Village

Once a small farming village, Iyashi no Sato Healing Village was destroyed by natural disaster in 1966. Reconstructed with techniques to preserve the original atmosphere, the village now stands as a living exhibition of edo period Japan.

Today, more than twenty thatch-roofed houses have been converted into art gallerys, mini museums, and handicraft shops and give visitors a chance to have a fun way of experiencing traditional artforms. You can even try on a kimono or samurai armor for a fun and unique photo op!

Itchiku Kubota Museum

Itchiku Kubota Museum is a small gallery dedicated to the intricate works of the textile artist of the same name. At an early age, Kubota was deeply inspired by the ancient tsujigahana (1300-1600AD) style of textile decoration and made it his life's mission to recreate this lost artform. 

The "Symphony of Light" kimono display is not to be missed, but even the building and gardens are attractions themselves. Enjoying a refreshing afternoon tea in the beautiful setting is a great way to rejuvenate your mind and body.

Itchiku Kubota Museum has been honored with a 3-star Michelin award 

Harajuku

Harajuku is known internationally as a center of Japanese youth culture and fashion. Shopping and dining options include quaint cafes and independent boutiques. The area is also home to Yoyogi Park and Meiji Jingu Shrine.

Shibuya
A center for youth fashion and culture, Shibuya's streets are the birthplace to many of Japan's fashion and entertainment trends. Over a dozen major department store branches can be found around the area catering to all types of shoppers. If you're in this district of Tokyo, make sure not to miss famous & exciting landmarks such as the Hachiko Dog Statue and the intensely busy Shibuya Crossing.
Shinjuku

Shinjuku is an area otherwise known as Tokyo’s playground where we can explore the nightlife of the magical city. This district exemplifies modern Tokyo and boasts countless movie theaters, department stores, fashion boutiques, shopping plazas, neon signs, restaurants, and a dizzying array of most everything Tokyo has to offer. At Shinjuku Station, Tokyo’s busiest station, an estimated 3.3 million people pass by per day, making it the busiest station in the world.

Imperial Palace
The Imperial Palace is the current home to the Emperor and his family. Surrounded by public parks, the palace is immersed within a sea of majestic bonsai trees, creating a quintessential oasis engulfed within the city. Though public entrance is only permitted twice a year, the castle itself is a relevant cultural symbol and regarded as a must-see site for visitors.
Sumida River Cruise

We make our way to Asakusa by a scenic cruise boat on the Sumida River. Down at water level, the short cruise not only gives you fresh air, but also great views of Asakusa and the Tokyo Skytree and brings you closer to Tokyo’s riverborne heritage.

Asakusa
Asakusa is the well-preserved and still vivacious old Edo district. It is best known for the Sensoji Temple, the oldest and most popular temple in the city where yearly festivals are held. Thousands of locals celebrate here every year to commemorate the life of Buddha. Through the Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate) leading to the temple is the famous Nakamise Dori, an area that has won itself a festive reputation, attracting many local specialists who sell unique Japanese delicacies within its crowded streets.
Ginza
In Ginza, set your soles on some of the most expensive real estate on our planet. This part of Tokyo is the quintessential, high-end shopping mecca for people to see and be seen. In Ginza not everything (or anything) is affordable, but for the same reason people visit Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles or Fifth Avenue in New York, the intrigue is the essence of the surroundings. So whether you’re browsing the extravagant department stores and towering, glossy retail shops or simply lounging with a cup of coffee, relax and enjoy as you watch Tokyo’s high society pass by.
Hotel Nikko Narita

Its convenient location makes the Nikko Narita one of the top two hotels in the area. Its proximity to the airport means travelers with late arrivals can rest well and avoid a long commute into the city.


Hilton Narita

Just minutes away from Narita Airport, the Hilton is one of the best in the area.  Its proximity to the airport means travelers with late arrivals can rest well and avoid a long commute into the city.

 


Fuji View Hot Spring Spa Hotel

Founded in 1936, this traditional Japanese inn is in a class of its own. The hotel offers unrestricted views of Mt. Fuji and boasts a vast garden area with over 300 cherry blossom trees. The hot spring waters can be enjoyed in both indoor and open air settings.


Imperial Hotel Tokyo

The choice of world leaders, diplomats, and foreign dignitaries, this iconic and prestigious five-star hotel features an impressive setting overlooking the lush Imperial Palace Gardens and walking distance to Tokyo’s most affluent Ginza and Marunouchi neighborhoods. This hotel has been awarded the Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Award for luxury and service several years in a row. 


Keio Plaza

A sleek upscale hotel enveloped by skyscrapers and the vibrant Shinjuku district. Find yourself just a short walk from the world’s busiest rail hub, densely dotted with depachikas, underground shopping arcades, and the most popular restaurants, shops, and attractions in the heart of Tokyo.

The pace of the tour was perfect. I liked how the tour guide was flexible and even took us to a knife shop that wasn’t on the itinerary. Not too much in 1 day but felt that the tour was very efficient. The transportation was great! (Liked the bullet train experience, buses were always clean!). The accommodations were the best!! First class all the way! We were refunded for some of our meals which was great! This gave us the flexibility to explore food that we didn’t enjoy on the tour! Will definitely want to recommend this tour to our friends and family. Would love to go to Northern Japan for my next trip! I’ve taken many tours and this is by far the best!! Thank you for the great experience—tour guide was fantastic as well (Junko).
