Overview

Delve into Japanese history and culture on a 3-day tour from Kyoto to Takayama, Shirakawago and Kanazawa, three must-visit historical cities of Japan. In each destination, experienced guides show you the sights, which include UNESCO-listed folk villages, traditional homes and legendary locales such as Kenroku-en Garden. Learn about the samurai and admire Edo-era architecture on this one-way tour that ends in Tokyo. Includes two nights of standard or deluxe accommodation in Takayama and Kanazawa, and transportation to all locations.
  • 3-day sightseeing tour of Takayama, Shirakawago and Kanazawa, one-way from Kyoto to Tokyo
  • Admire traditional Japanese architecture from the Edo era and other periods
  • Visit Takayama's Kami Sannomachi, the Yatai Kaikan hall and Kusakabe Folk Museum
  • Includes your choice of standard or deluxe hotel accommodation
Your 3-day tour puts the spotlight on the historical cities of Takayama, Shirakawago and Kanazawa. Each city is famous in its own right: Takayama for its impeccably preserved Old Town, Shirakawago for its traditional farmhouses, and Kanazawa for its cultural heritage and samurai history.

Start your 1-way tour in Kyoto and travel by train, local bus, taxi and coach between the destinations before ending in Tokyo. Travel independently by train, then be met by a professional guide at each stop. Receive assistance with transfers to your hotels, and take tours at each location with professional guides who show you the top attractions, then have time on your own in the evenings. Meals are not included, which allows you the flexibility to eat when, where and what you like. Your guide can provide recommendations for good restaurants. Your tour includes transportation, guides and your choice of standard or deluxe accommodation for two nights.

The tour was very good. Asa, our tour guide, was exceptional. I was not happy with the amount of luggage we were responsible to carry and that we were told at the last minute that we needed to send our large luggage to Tokyo and only have a carry on for the 3 days. This wasn't explained on the website when I booked my tour. Much of the reason I booked this tour in particular, was because I read that luggage would be taken care of. I know that you combined Brenda Buonora and I were added to a different tour and this is why the baggage issue arose. You have great staff. The logistical part was problematic.
