Hamarikyu-teien. In 1654, the third son of the 3rd Shogun, Tokugawa Iemitsu, captivated by the view of the vast ocean from which the morning sun rises, ordered an island to be built here and a park to be created. A tea pavilion, a gunpowder storage facility for fireworks, a lake filled with seawater with unique flora and many trees and shrubs made the island a real pearl of old Edo. You will see an example of the impeccable garden art of Japanese masters, lovingly preserved to this day, and a magnificent view of the newest part of Tokyo, located right in the Pacific Ocean.
Tsukiji is the world's largest wholesale fish market. This famous place wakes up the earliest in Japan - at three in the morning! It is here, before dawn, that freshly caught fish arrives from all the oceans and seas of the planet: majestic carcasses of bluefin tuna, luxurious pink salmon, sea shells of all possible types and shapes with their bizarre inhabitants, giant crabs bristling with powerful claws, long-whiskered spiny lobsters and thousands of other sea reptiles. . After the morning auctions, all this food is sent to restaurants in Tokyo and the rest of the world. A scenic journey through Daiba.
Deisan Historical Park, where you can see the remains of defensive structures. Not far from here is the futuristic Fuji TV building with its huge titanium ball, designed by the outstanding architect Kenzo Tange. Our trip to Tokyo will end with a visit to the teamLab Planets digital art museum. Return to the hotel.

Meeting with a Russian-speaking guide in the hotel lobby and departure by chartered transport for an excursion to Kamakura with lunch of Japanese cuisine.
Kamakura is the medieval military capital of Japan, giving its name to the period of the same name in the country's history. Today, Kamakura, located southwest of Tokyo, is a city of ancient Shinto and Buddhist temples and fashionable modern resorts on the Pacific coast.
Kamakura was founded by the famous shogun Minamoto no Yoritomi, who built a fortress here and made this place his residence. From the point of view of medieval warriors, the place was very strategically located: it is surrounded by forested hills on three sides, and from the south it overlooks Sagami Bay, the Pacific Ocean. Thus, the patrimony of the Minamoto clan was protected from enemies by mountains and the sea. There are almost two hundred Shinto and Buddhist temples and shrines in the city: the rulers of Kamakura patronized religion and art in every possible way. Among them, one can highlight the Shinto shrine of Tsurugaoka Hachimangu, surrounded by cherry trees and thickets of azaleas, built back in 1063 in honor of the god Hachiman, who is the patron saint of the Minamoto clan. It is also worth highlighting the Buddhist temple Tekei-ji, which in the Kamakura era was called the “Temple of Divorces”, as it served as a place of exile for unloved wives. Now the temple is famous for the blossoming of the fruit trees and flowers surrounding it: plums in February, magnolias and peaches in March and April, peonies in May, irises in June.
...from the seashore up to the already mentioned Tsarugaoka Temple, which means Crane Hill, there is a wide road called Wakamiya Oji - “Street of the Young Prince”. The shogun gave her this name after learning that his wife was expecting a child. On both sides of the road there are two ponds - life and death, they are called, respectively, Genji and Heike. White lotuses grow in the Genji Pond, and red lotuses grow in the Heike Pond. Between them there is a Bridge of Eternal Life. It is believed that if you can climb and walk across a bridge during heavy rain without using your hands, you will have a long life. Along Wakamiya Oji there are three torii, huge wooden gates painted the traditional orange color. According to the canons of Shintoism, torii represent the vestibule of the temple and serve to scare away demons....
Kamakura is now a small resort town with many seaside restaurants, often owned by local surfers. But it was during the Kamakura period that the country repelled two attempts at Mongol invasion from the mainland, which contributed to the rise of national spirit. This small town breathes the former grandeur of samurai Japan.
On a free evening, you can visit the Nidzia themed restaurant or a colorful show based on national motifs with dinner.

Osaka Castle. Shitenoji Temple. Observation deck of the Umeda skyscraper.
Full description
The first settlements here arose in the fourth century, before the arrival of Buddhism in Japan. Surprisingly, in the place where Osaka is now located, in ancient times, before the capital periods of Nara and Kyoto, there was for some time the nomadic capital of Japan. Then this settlement was called Naniva, and the capital moved to a new place with the next ruler.
Osaka, Japan's second city, therefore has a long metropolitan tradition, which, coupled with its economic strength, makes it a real rival to Tokyo.
There really is something to see here! Osaka is a true metropolis, with almost twenty million people living in its agglomeration. It is also the largest economic center of Western Japan. Trade has long been carried out here, so the trading spirit of the Kansai region, of which Osaka is the center, has always been contrasted with the metropolitan Tokyo spirit of the Kanto region. There is even a Kansai dialect of Japanese here!
The spirit of modern Osaka is embodied in the skyscraper-filled Umeda business district. The famous Umeda Sky building is located here, one of the symbols of the city, which consists of two towers of forty floors, connected by a bridge at the very top. On the roof of the skyscraper there is an observation deck resembling a hanging garden, which is called Sky Gardens, as well as a real observatory! Osaka's great past is now silently narrated by the city's main symbol, the famous Osaka Castle, or Osaka-jo. It was built at the end of the sixteenth century by the outstanding military leader Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Osaka Castle became his stronghold in the fight against the Tokugawa shogunate, based in Edo, now Tokyo. Surrounded by a water moat, the castle, which played a significant role in that era, is located on a stone embankment, with giant boulders placed at its base. The castle has eight floors, three of which are basements. Now there is a museum with a large exhibition of samurai armor, historical documents and other artifacts of those legendary times. Osaka is also home to the famous Shitenno-ji Temple - “Temple of the Four Heavenly Lords”. It was founded at the end of the sixth century by Crown Prince Shotoku in honor of the victory of Buddhist forces over Shinto forces during the era of religious wars in ancient Japan. The temple is considered one of the most important Buddhist shrines in the country - as the birthplace and formation of Japanese Buddhism.
And the famous Dotonbori Street is a kind of bridge between the past and the present. It appeared at the beginning of the seventeenth century. With its neon lights, Dotonbori resembles a river: “fashion victims” will find boutiques of the world’s leading fashion brands here, and gourmets will appreciate the highest level of Japanese cuisine in local restaurants. Here you can taste original Osaka cuisine such as “yaki-niku” (grilled meat and vegetables), “kansai sushi” (pieces of marinated fish served with rice), “tako-yaki” (slices of boiled octopus baked in dough) ) and, of course, the famous Osaka “okonomiyaki” (a kind of omelette made from noodles, meat, seafood and cabbage, smeared with a special sauce and sprinkled with finely chopped dry tuna shavings). It was thanks to the abundance of delicious food in Osaka that the expression “kuidaore”, unique even for Japan, was born, which means truly epicurean enjoyment of food while spending all the money on it.
Osaka is Tokyo's rival, the only city in Japan comparable to the “Capital of the East” in terms of history, economics and importance to the country.
Transfer to your hotel in Kyoto after the excursion. Accommodation rest.

Kinkakuji Temple - Golden Pavilion - located on the territory of the Rokuon-ji temple complex and surrounded by the amazingly clear and transparent Lake Kyokoti, which translates as “Mirror Lake”, where the temple finds its reflection. The temple with the sonorous name Kiyomizudera - “Temple of Pure Water”. And, of course, the famous philosophical rock garden of Ryoanji, a garden of fifteen stones seemingly randomly scattered across the light sand. However, from any vantage point of this garden only fourteen stones are visible, one of them will always be hidden from our eyes...
An interesting belief is associated with Kiyomizudera - the Temple of Pure Water. It was founded by Buddhist monks of the Hosso school back in 780 next to a waterfall with crystal clear water. The waterfall pours out three streams, symbolizing wisdom, health and longevity, but its delicious water can only be drunk from two of them, otherwise you will show your greed and bring disaster upon yourself. The temple houses the eleven-faced and ten-armed Buddhist goddess of mercy Kannon Bosatsu. It is believed that Kannon, when helping people, is able to reincarnate into thirty-three different incarnations, each of which has its own temple, with the Kiyomizudera Temple being one of these incarnations, the sixteenth in a row.
And the most visited place by tourists in Kyoto, according to statistics, is the majestic Ninjo Castle, built in 1603 by the Tokugawa clan. It was larger in size than the imperial Gosho Castle, as if reminding that the true rulers of Japan in those ancient times were the shoguns from the Tokugawa clan and it was from here that they ruled the country. The wooden castle building itself is quite low, but very long, with graceful roof slopes. Each of its halls, each of its rooms had its own purpose and therefore was decorated with its own unique floral ornaments of the Kano school, be it cherry blossom petals or bamboo or reed stems bent to the ground. In the depths of the castle there are also the shogun’s own chambers, where only female servants were allowed to enter. Ninjo Castle reflected the grandeur and power of the Tokugawa shogunate, which ruled Japan during the Edo era.
You can wander around Kyoto all day long - and every day will be the discovery of a new temple or shrine, large or small, Buddhist or Shinto, famous or inconspicuous...
But the ancient capital of Japan is famous not only for its temples and spiritual life. The Gion geisha and entertainment district is another place where the spirit of old Kyoto hovers. In the Gion area there are many shops with local souvenirs, ceramics and signature Kyoto desserts, as well as tea houses and cafes. Here, to this day, among tourists you can meet maiko-san - students of geishas, girls who are just mastering this legendary profession. The simple, but surprisingly picturesque, very Japanese architecture of the shopping streets of Kyoto will be remembered for a lifetime, beckoning to you even after years...
A huge number of architectural and historical sites in Kyoto are classified as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Thanks to its enduring cultural and historical heritage, not a single bomb fell on Kyoto during World War II - even its enemies did not want to damage the city. But it attracts not only with its beautiful temples, parks and monasteries. It is here that what is called “iki” in Japanese aesthetics is most strongly manifested: modesty and simplicity even in luxury, lightness and understatement that hide true beauty. The charm and style of Kyoto literally creeps into your soul and remains there forever. After the excursion, transfer to your hotel in Osaka.

Nara, an ancient city located just outside Kyoto, half an hour's drive from Kyoto, was the capital of Japan from 710 to 784, that is, before the capital was moved to Kyoto. More recently, in 2010, noisy celebrations were held in Nara to mark the 1300th anniversary of the city's acceptance of the status of the imperial capital. The Nara era is the time of triumph of Buddhism that came to Japan from the Asian mainland, the time of the creation of majestic architectural structures, such as the Todaiji Temple of the Kegon Buddhist school, erected in 725. Todaiji, which translates to "Great Eastern Temple", is the largest wooden structure in the world. Like many man-made structures and natural beauties in Japan, this temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The main deity of the temple is the Buddha of Endless Light - the embodiment of the sun, a 16-meter bronze statue that cannot be photographed.
In general, Nara was built very thoughtfully, based on the principles of Feng Shui, in the image and likeness of Changyan, the capital of China during the Tang Dynasty.
Nara Park, which surrounds Todaiji and a number of other temples, has been home to deer for a long time. According to legend, the first emperor of Japan, Jimmu, the grandson of the sun goddess Amaterasu, descended from heaven on a deer in this place. Since then, all local deer have been considered descendants of that first deer. Despite the fact that they are wild, we can say that they are completely tame. Tourists happily feed them special rice cookies, which are sold throughout the park. All you have to do is reach out your hand with a cookie, and the sound of hooves will be heard from different directions, and in a matter of seconds, the muzzles of deer will poke into your palms, begging for a treat! Here, in Nara Park, there is also the Kofukuji Buddhist temple, built back in 669, where one of the tallest pagodas in the country, the 55-meter high Goju-no-to, which is a symbol of the city, is located.
...Nara preserves the memory of those legendary times when Buddhism was just coming to the Japanese islands, hitherto inhabited by Shinto gods and demons...
