"Inspirational, innovative and intriguing, Japan has always been a favorite Tauck destination."
Gilded temples and glittering skyscrapers reign over streets steeped in history and tradition. Join Tauck for a Japanese travel experience to remember.
In the port city of Osaka, life unfolds in contrasts. Board a high-speed train for sights frozen in time, from a floating shrine to the poignant Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, lit by an eternal flame. Visit a castle that has stood the test of time and mingle with the locals on a canal-lined street. In Kyoto, golden pavilions and a nightingale castle honor royal times, and cultural arts keep customs like Origami, tea and Maiko dancing alive. Old Japan is chronicled in tranquil Nara, gardens grace Samurai residences in Kanazawa, and “praying hands” hold up homes and spirits in historic mountain villages. And while modern bullet trains speed through country landscapes, the pace slows down to reveal the Essence of Japan.
