09:50 The guide will meet you in the hotel lobby with a sign "New Year's trip to the country of Wa" 10:00-18:00 Tour of Tokyo with lunch (buffet)
The Imperial Palace, located in the central Marunouchi district, is the heart of Tokyo. This is where the residence of the Emperor of Japan Akihito is located. The palace is surrounded by a canal crossed by the Nyujubashi stone arch bridge, one of the symbols of Tokyo. More than two thousand matsu pines grow in the palace park; in Japan they are considered a symbol of longevity. Here you will also visit the East Garden of the Imperial Palace, created back in 1603 by the famous master of landscape gardens Kobori Enshu.
Ginza - Adjacent to the Imperial Palace, this shopping district has been the historical center of the city since Japan's opening to the outside world, offering an immersive haute couture experience. The symbol of Ginza is the Wako luxury department store, built in 1894, a masterpiece of the Art Nouveau style. The department store is located at the famous Yong-Chom, the Fourth Crossing of Ginza, a place as symbolic to every Japanese as New York's Times Square is to an American. The hieroglyphs “Gin-Za” mean “Silver Workshop”; silver coins were once minted here, and the spirit of luxury has been in the air here for hundreds of years.
Shinjuku... Tokyo's downtown is built with stunning skyscrapers... This is where the famous Tokyo Metropolitan Building is located, where the Tokyo City Hall is located. Two huge 244-meter twin towers, standing on a single base, are somewhat reminiscent of Notre Dame in Paris, only enlarged several times! This skyscraper was designed by the famous architect Kenzo Tange and is one of the most famous buildings in the Japanese capital. From the observation deck, the entire city lies at your fingertips, and in clear weather from here you can see the peak of Fuji-san - the main symbol of the Land of the Rising Sun, a mountain sacred to every resident of the country.
Tokyo strikes with an amazing combination of old and new, here ancient temples stand in the shadow of modern skyscrapers. That's why we head to the Meiji Jingu Temple complex, immersed in the green darkness of Yoyogi Park and located just one subway stop from Shinjuku. It was built in memory of Emperor Meiji, the founder of modern Japan. In addition to its elegant architecture, Meiji Jingu is also known as a wedding venue. During the ritual, performed away from prying eyes, in the heart of the temple, the bride and groom take turns taking three sips of sake, after which the marriage is considered concluded. Then there is a photo session. A bright flash - and the ceremony is over: another family was born at the Meiji Shrine. The shrine, built according to the principles of nagarezukuri temple architecture, is approached by a wide gravel road with a huge torii gate. At the temple you can also get “omikuji” - papers with fortunes in English. By throwing a 100 yen coin, you can draw an omikuji from a wooden box. Moreover, these predictions are given in a form unconventional for this genre - these are poems in the form of instructions written by Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken. The verses are accompanied by an interpretation written by Shinto priests.
Omotesando Boulevard, buried in willows, along which the excursion route will then pass, separates the realm of street fashion - the Harajuku quarter, glorified by Gwen Stefani, and the realm of high fashion, Aoyama. This area, with its lines of European, Japanese and American boutiques, challenges Ginza itself!
A visit to Tokyo's largest boutique of souvenirs and antiques, Oriental Bazaar, will not leave you indifferent. This legendary store, whose appearance resembles a Shinto shrine, was opened here in Harajuku, on Omotesando Boulevard, back in 1951 and since then its doors have not been closed to tourists. On its three floors everything that traditional Japan is famous for is sold: beautiful lanterns and screens in the Japanese style, silk and cotton summer yukata kimonos, a variety of porcelain dishes, bamboo products, as well as pearls, reproductions of famous ukiyo-e prints, hashi chopsticks and even colorful photo albums and books about Japan. Affordable prices, a large selection of products - practical and attractive - and, of course, an unusual architectural design make Oriental Bazaar an ideal place for those who dream of taking home their own piece of ancient Japan. Return to the hotel.

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. Toyota Exhibition Center, here you will get acquainted with the latest achievements of the concern, take part in the virtual F 1 race. Visit to the Legend of Edo hot spring complex. Here you will be dressed in a Kimono and you will take baths as they did in ancient Japan. Return to the hotel.

12/31/2019 Excursion to Kawagoe.
07:00-08:30
Breakfast in the hotel.
09:00-18:00
Excursion to Kawagoe.
Full description
Meeting in the hotel lobby with a sign "New Year's trip to the country of Wa" This small town about an hour's drive from Tokyo is also called "Little Edo" due to the fact that even now it resembles historical Edo (the old name of the current capital of Japan) with its quarters wooden buildings. Kawagoe is famous for its ancient black houses with black tiles, as well as... purple potato ice cream.
Kawagoe starts from its main street, where there are many historical black buildings. This is where our excursion will start. The famous town hall with a clock, which is a symbol of the city, is also located here. The road to it is the second stage of the Kawagoe tour.
Next, our path will lie to one of the most famous historical buildings of the city, the architectural museum “Medieval Merchant House”. It is a carefully preserved example of commercial development from the Edo era. From this museum it would be logical to move to another, which is called the museum of the annual city festival “Kawagoe Matsuri”.
And at the stalls along Kashiya Yokocho Lane you'll find many of the local sweets that Kawagoe is famous for, such as Japanese ume glazed plums and, of course, purple potato ice cream. Of course, the Hikawa-jinja Shinto shrine, like everything else here, located nearby, also deserves attention. After this, it’s worth visiting Kawagoe Castle, or rather, what it looks like now – it’s a whole complex of traditional buildings.
Well, the crown of the city tour will be a visit to another local attraction, the Buddhist temple of Kita-in. It is here that the original interiors from the old, now defunct Edo Castle are kept, moved here after a terrible fire caused by the devastating 1923 earthquake in Tokyo. In addition, there is also a picturesque traditional Japanese garden, in the center of which there is a temple.

Transfer to Tokyo station and transfer by high-speed train to Kyoto. Meeting at the train carriage upon arrival.
Tour of Kyoto with lunch at a traditional Japanese restaurant.
Kyoto is the ancient imperial capital of Japan, one of the oldest cities in the country, the entire historical part of which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This city with refined traditions was founded at the end of the 8th century and served as the residence of emperors for almost twelve centuries. Among the many temples and sacred buildings in Kyoto, one can highlight the Sanjusan-gendo temple, built back in 1164 and today it is the longest wooden structure in the world. In the long central hall, in the twilight, there are 1001 statues of the goddess Kannon the Merciful. Then - lunch at a traditional Japanese restaurant. Another Kyoto gem is Kinkaku-ji, the "Golden Pavilion", an elegant three-level temple whose roofs are covered with thin sheets of gold. The building is topped with a traditional bronze phoenix. The temple is located in a magnificent walking garden from the Muromachi period. Nearby is the world-famous philosophical Zen rock garden of Ryoanji: fifteen stones seem to be randomly scattered on the white gravel, but from any point only fourteen are always visible... There is also the Silver Pavilion in Kyoto - Ginkaku-ji, another masterpiece of sacred Japanese architecture. The temple is gracefully reflected in the adjacent lake... And with the open veranda of Kiyomizudera Temple - the Temple of Pure Water - hanging over the abyss, a stunning panorama of Kyoto opens up. There is also a legendary source of wish fulfillment: if you make a wish and take three sips, then, according to ancient belief, this wish will definitely come true. It’s also worth checking out the Gion quarter, which has been a center of entertainment since ancient times, as well as a place where geishas live. At the end of the excursion, transfer to Osaka - transfer to the hotel.

Himeji-jo.
Anyone who has ever seen this beauty simply cannot forget. Local residents respectfully and affectionately call her Hime-Sama. Madam Princess. A castle-fortress is usually associated with men, but not this one.
For its dazzling white color and multi-tiered roofs, reminiscent of the wings of a huge bird, the fortress is also called the Castle of the White Heron.
The history of the fortress dates back to 1346, but it acquired its current splendor in 1609, when the owner of the local lands, Prince Ikeda Terumasa, married a beautiful princess - the eldest daughter of the Great Shogun Tokugawa.
You will have a unique opportunity to see the interior of the largest surviving watchtower in Japan. You will be amazed at the scale of construction and the skill of the sons of the Land of the Rising Sun. The gigantic structure, designed to protect the city, is surprisingly harmonious and elegant. You have to be Japanese to create a complex of 230,000 square meters with such impeccable taste. Nothing superfluous, only fantastic islands of wildlife surrounding everyone’s favorite.
In spring, everything here is buried in sakura flowers. There is so much white Yoshino with large petals that the sky and earth are almost invisible. Cascades of pink flowers on the Weeping Sakura and whole streams of Sakura-Waterfall branches fall into the smooth mirrors of the ponds. In the evening, when the torches are burning, the Castle and gardens are illuminated - a truly mystical sight.
You will see the place of the sacred ritual of seppuku, the Kiku well, from where a gentle voice still sounds at night, huge Shachi crowning the curved roofs, you will hear local stories that have become legends.
About kindness and loyalty, deceit and betrayal and, of course, about love.
At all times, Himeji-jo protected the City, and the City repaid her handsomely. An amazing story about the rescue of the Princess is also waiting for your visit.
The proximity to the sea and the mineral-rich soil have always provided the city with enough food, and the local cuisine will not leave you indifferent. Tender 100-day-old grilled chicken, sea eel in a crispy “coat” of airy dough, transparent slices of sea bream and excellent sake.
For noodle lovers, there is simply plenty to enjoy here - udon, ramen, and soba have been rolled out in Himeji since time immemorial.
In December 1993, Himeji-jo, together with Horyuji Temple, which is located in the oldest Japanese capital - Nara, was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Register. The beauty, literally torn from the fire-breathing mouth of the terrible dragon - the Second World War, rightfully takes its place among the wonders from all over the world. Return to the hotel in Osaka.

Excursion to Nara + Osaka
Nara was the first capital of Japan, from 710 to 784. Since then, many architectural masterpieces have been preserved here, mainly Buddhist temples that are classified as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, such as the Horyu-ji Temple ensemble. The vast Nara Park is home to more than a thousand sacred deer, which are believed to be descendants of the same legendary deer on which Emperor Jimmu descended from heaven. The Todai-ji Temple, which translates as the Great Eastern Temple, the largest wooden structure in the world, houses the Great Buddha Waicharon, which in turn is the largest bronze Buddha statue in the world...
Moving to Osaka is the main city of the Kansai region, a real metropolis, the industrial and commercial center of Western Japan, which has long played an important role in the life of the country. The most famous landmark of Osaka, a city that rivals Tokyo, is the famous Osaka-jo - Osaka Castle, a majestic structure with eight floors, of which three are underground. It was erected in 1586 as a stronghold of the shogun Toyotomi Hideyoshi and the main castle of Japan. In the lower floors of the castle there is a museum where a medieval collection of armor, letters and documents is exhibited. In the downtown business center of Osaka, there is the famous Umeda Sky skyscraper, with the Sky Gardens observation deck located on its roof, reminiscent of hanging gardens. The building is a masterpiece of modern architecture.
You should also definitely see the famous Dotonbori Street, the local “Broadway”. This central street of the city is famous for its exquisite restaurants and boutiques of the world's leading brands.
At the end of the tour, transfer to the hotel.

Kanazawa is a city formed with the construction of the Kanazawa Gobo Temple by the Ikko Buddhist sect over 500 years ago. It is one of the central cities of Japan. Translated, the name Kanazawa means “golden swamp”, this is associated with the legend of the discovery of a peasant who accidentally stumbled upon gold in the mud.
In the morning you will go to Kenrokuen, the “garden of six virtues”, one of the Three Famous Parks of Japan. Kenrokuen Garden truly deserves your attention; it is an excellent example of Japanese park art. Each tree, branch, and pebble in the pond was carefully thought out and artistically verified according to the creator’s idea. It’s amazing how harmoniously and unobtrusively man-made bridges, stone lanterns, and pagodas fit into the natural landscape.
In the park, in addition to the oldest fountain in Japan, you will also see the Seisonkaku Villa, built by one of the lords of the Kaga clan for his mother at the end of the Edo period. The elegance of the architecture, the gates with graceful ceilings, the wooden panels glittering with gilding, precious kimonos, engravings, artistic scrolls - you will be amazed at the grace of this samurai villa, which has survived to this day.
Kenrokuen was originally a garden at Kanazawa-jo Castle, of which only ruins now remain. Built in the 16th century, the castle was destroyed in a fire; all that remained of the fortress was the Ishikawamon Gate and the Sanjukken-nagai Arsenal building. You will be able to see a restored historical reconstruction of the castle, which was one of the largest feudal fortresses in Japan. Return to the hotel in Osaka.
