ARRIVAL IN TOKYO (morning flight)
Full description
Your first day in Japan would start off with a trip to the Tokyo Imperial palace. At the palace park you will enjoy watching gorgeous Japanese pine trees ‘Matsu’. Just a step away, over the moat filled with sacred Japanese carps, there is a local landmark, Nijubashi bridge, one of Tokyo’s symbols.

The next step would be moving to elegant Ginza, Tokyo’s fanciest district. It has been Tokyo’s heart ever since Japan opened up itself to the world in the 19th century. The luxurious Wako department store, Ginza’s most famous landmark, is a fascinating Art Nuovo masterpiece. It is located at Ginza’s Fourth Intersection, which is Tokyo’s Times Square. The name Ginza comes after the establishment of a silver-coin mint that started there back in 1612, during the Edo period. Today’s Ginza is a popular upscale shopping area with numerous internationally renowned department stores, boutiques and restaurants located in its vicinity. It is considered one of the most expensive, elegant and luxurious districts in the world. One can enjoy watching fascinating Cartier, Christian Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton or Mikimoto flagship stores concentrated in this area. By the way, those who prefer not fashion but high-tech gadgets or most modern cars might want to visit Nissan Expo or Sony Building, also located in Ginza.

Our next destination would be Odaiba island. This artificial island is a unique place itself with various attractions, from amusement parks, including Deisan park, to the futuristic TV Fuji building designed by world’s famous architect Kenzo Tange. You can even spot here local Stature of Liberty, a gift from France. We may also choose to visit Toyota Expo Center (with the F1 simulator available) and Edo hot springs facility where you can try on a kimono or take a bath the old Japanese way.

When this long and intense day is over, you will get back to your hotel.

Sure, wherever you are in Tokyo, you just can’t miss out the majestic Tokyo Sky Tree, recently built world’s tallest, 634-meter high TV tower. The number of 634 has its magic because it is deeply symbolic: its digits stand for ‘mu’, ‘sa’, ‘shi’, making it sound like ‘Musashi’, which is the name of the historical area right where this super tower is built today.

When this long and intense day is over, you will enjoy a ride back to your hotel.

Yokohama city tour
Full description
Yokohama has always been the ‘gates to Japan’, ever since this country has opened up to the world, full of foreigners busy strolling down the streets. This sea port town is full of attractions with the ‘Minato Mirai 21’ district as the obvious #1 option. Its name stands for the ‘Port of the future 21’. It was built in the 1990s to emphasize Japan’s strive into the future. And the Minato Mirai architecture with its wave of fascinating skyscrapers is truly futuristic and breathtaking, to say the least! Its centerpiece is the famous ‘Landmark Tower’, Japan’s tallest skyscraper over 300 meters high. You will want to get to the building’s observation deck to enjoy stunning view of the sea, the harbor and the land, including Tokyo to the north and Mount Fuji to the west, permitting the weather.

Going down on surface, we will take a walk in the picturesque Yamasita park, another city’s attraction. Right from here you will enjoy yet another nice view, this time from the sea level: you are to appreciate the grandeur of the 890-meter long Yokohama bridge hanging over the Yokohama bay. It is also here where you can see the legendary Hikawa Maru cruise ship (translated as Queen of the Pacific), now laid up forever at Yokohama port. It is a must-visit sea museum today recalling its glorious past. Looking back from the shoreline you just can’t miss the Marine Tower, world’s tallest lighthouse standing proudly just behind the Minato Mirai area. You should also check out the Cosmo Clock 21, a giant Ferris wheel, one of the largest in Japan and the outside world: take a ride and enjoy the majestic panoramic views of the city slowly rotating above and below.

Yokohama, a very cosmopolitan city, is also a home to another #1: its Chinatown is the largest in Asia and one of the largest in the world. When you step inside it feels like you’re leaving Japan and entering China. By the way, it would be a good idea to enjoy some great Chinese food there at one of its numerous venues, just to make a break from equally great Japanese cuisine. Its largest temple, Kwan Tai, is another attraction to see in Yokohama.

After your Yokohama tour is completed you will return to your hotel in Tokyo.

Kamakura tour
Full description
The Kamakura shogunate, Japan’s medieval capital, was founded by Minamoto no Yoritomo, Japan’s first shogun.
Kamakura stands like a true fortress, surrounded by the mountains from three sides and looking at the sea from the forth side. Kamakura is a home for over 200 Buddhist and Shinto temples and shrines. Hase-dera, commonly called the Hase-kannon is one of the Buddhist temples in the city of Kamakura, famous for housing a massive 9-meter high wooden statue of Kannon, making it the tallest wooden structure of such kind in Japan. As the legend says, the statue was built in 8th century AD.

You should also take a look at the Kotoku-in temple, renowned for its ‘Great Buddha’, a monumental outdoor bronze statue of Amida Buddha, which is one of the most famous icons of Japan.

Kamakura's defining feature is Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu, a Shinto shrine in the center of the city. A 1.1-mile road runs from Sagami Bay directly to the shrine. This road is known as Wakamiya Oji, the city's main street. Built by Minamoto no Yoritomo as an imitation of Kyoto's Suzaku Oji, Wakamiya Oji used to be much wider, delimited on both sides by a 3-meter deep canal and flanked by pine trees.
Walking from the beach toward the shrine, you will pass through three torii, or Shinto gates, called respectively Ichi-no Torii (first gate), Ni-no Torii (second gate) and San-no Torii (third gate). Between the first and the second lies Geba Yotsukado which, as the name indicates, was the place where riders had to get off their horses in deference to Hachiman and his shrine.
Of course, we will not miss the Zeniarai Benten temple, a Shinto sacred site. In spite of its small size, it is the second most popular spot in Kamakura after Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu. This shrine is popular among tourists because the waters of a spring in its cave are said to be able to multiply the money washed in it.

Kamakura is also famous for its seasonal festivals – matsuri – celebrating the city and its history, mainly in April and September. The September festival is a very well-known event with many attractions, the most famous of which is the yabusame or Japanese horseback archery. Being there in mid-September, it would be a good idea to attend it.
You will return to Tokyo by car after the tour is wrapped-up.
