The season

We will be travelling to Japan in Autumn, which is widely considered to be one of the best periods to visit Japan, offering some of the fairest and most comfortable weather. Apart from its great weather conditions and generally clear weather, October/November is the peak time to see colourful leaves around Japan. Autumn is most famous for the vibrancy of the changing foliage referred to as Koyo. This makes autumn a popular season in Japan and a magical  time of year, with National Parks having a sea of reds and golds.

Day 3 - 3rd OctoberTOKYO

Today we will explore the city of Tokyo, Japan’s capital and largest city which is the the world’s most populous metropolis. When someone think of sushi and sashimi, they automatically think Japan. Sushi is the most famous Japanese dish outside of Japan, and one of the most popular dishes among the Japanese.

  • Tsukiji Fish Market –  is a foodie wonderland, especially for seafood lovers and we will start today’s adventure by getting lost and wandering around the numerous food stalls to taste local delicacies (not only fish products) and souvenirs for those guests who enjoy their time in the kitchen and appreciate their kitchen gadgets. In this fish market tuna auctions take place, which is a spectacle, however, this usually takes place early in the morning.

The temple is approached via Nakamise, a shopping street which runs 250 metres and provides temple visitors  a variety of traditional souvenirs, snacks, and sweets.

On this day we leave Japan’s capital and head towards Matsumoto for an overnight stay at a highly rated onsen ryokan, which is a highly recommended experience to any visitor of Japan. Before arriving, we will spend explore the area around the legendary Mt.Fuji.

Lake Kawaguchiko – we will arrive right at the base of Mt.Fuji at Lake Kawaguchiko, which is the most easily accessible of the Fuji five lakes. The best views of Mount Fuji can be enjoyed from the lake and are breathtaking during the time we will be visiting, in autumn season, due to the changing colors of leaves. Trees that were once green explode into beautiful hues of gold, red, and orange. Please note views of mount Fuji are always subject to the weather conditions on that day.

Chureito Pagoda – Another great view point that we will visit is the Chureito Pagoda, which is a five storied pagoda on the mountainside overlooking Mt.Fuji and the Fujiyoshida city. The location offers a combination of great views of the Pagoda and Mt.Fuji.

Hoto Noodles – we will also have the opportunity to eat Hoto Noodles for lunch which is a hearty hot pot dish local to this region. It is commonly believed to have been eaten by Takeda Shingen, the regional warlord during the era of warring states, and his samurai before going into battle. The dish consists of thick wheat noodles in a miso based soup and is often served in an iron pot. While hoto noodles resemble extra thick udon noodles, they are prepared more like dumplings, and lend a heartier quality to the dish than udon would. The soup is traditionally a miso based broth with pumpkin and other seasonal vegetables added. (Group booking –  additional JPY 2,500 per person).

Experience Kaiseki cuisine (originated in the 16th century) refers to haute Japanese cuisine that balances the taste, texture, appearance, and colors of food, food that it is always very dependent from season (in spring there will be a different menu compared to winter, for example). Inside an ideal kaiseki menu you will find an appetizer, seasonal sashimi, rice based dish, miso soup, flame-grilled dish, vegetable-base dish, various palate-cleanser dishes (approx 7,000 JPY)

  • Takayama Morning Market – We will start off the day by wandering arounf Jinya-mae Market in front of the Takayama Jinya. With an array of products that shifts with the seasons, you will find only the freshest fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other items at the stalls along the market. Unlike regular souvenir stores, shops at the morning market exclusively stock products that were conceived and grown by the people running them. The locals who run these shops are friendly as can be, and are always looking to engage customers in conversation.
  • Takayama Jinya – since the market is in front of the Takayama Jinya, we will pass by  before heading off for lunch. The Takayama Jinya is a museum, previously serving as the local government office

Lunch

After lunch, we will travel (1 hour) to Shirakawa-go, which is a mountainous region and declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1995. This region is famous for their traditional ‘gassho-zukuri’ farmhouses, some of which are more than 250 years old. ‘Gassho-zukuri’, literally means “like praying hands.” Each house is a masterpiece of carpentry. They are built without nails—every beam slots neatly into the next.

  • The Wada House – is the largest traditional ‘gassho-style’ farmhouse in Shirakawa-go, which was built in the Edo period (1603–1867). The house reflects the wealth and status of the Wada family, which for centuries was the largest landowner in the village of Ogimachi.  
  • Ogimachi Viewpoint – we will walk to the popular spot to overlook the village of Ogimachi in Shirakawa, sprinkled with thatched ‘gassho-zukuri’ houses amidst a tranquil rural scene.

Day 7 - 7th OctoberKANAZAWA

Kanazawa has a different feel to the busy metropolis cities in Japan, the elegant garden city of Kanazawa is a quieter alternative to Kyoto for those seeking traditional Japanese culture. Kanazawa avoided bombing in World War II and is now one of the best-preserved Edo-period cities in Japan.

As a former castle town and home to a powerful samurai family, Kanazawa is full of beautifully groomed gardens and open spaces to enjoy. Autumn presents the perfect time to enjoy them as the once-green summer foliage explodes in fiery fall colours. 

Kanazawa Castle -In Kanazawa we will visit parts of the old castle that survived through the war in pretty good condition

Kenroku-un -is justifiably classified as one of Japan’s “three most beautiful landscape gardens” .The spacious grounds used to be the outer garden of Kanazawa Castle. The garden’s name means: Garden of the six sublimities”, the properties that have to be a perfect garden, it means: spaciousness, antiquity, seclusion, elaborate use of water, scenic charm, and artifice.

Lunch

Higashi Chaya District – discover one of Kanazawa’s largest geisha districts. In Japanese culture, geisha houses have been traditional places for feasts and entertainment since the Edo period. Also referred to as “chaya”, they are where geishas entertained wealthy nobility and rich merchants. Geishas are female Japanese entertainers who perform dances and play traditional Japanese instruments.

The central part of Kanazawa was once dotted with a number of geisha houses, but in 1820, these were moved to three specific districts away from the city centre. The largest one of these – and arguably the most famous – is the Higashi Chaya district.

After a day well spent discovering Kanazawa and the Geisha District, we will return to our hotel and we could go for dinner as a group or who wants could do their own thing.

Day 8 - 8th OctoberKANAZAWA - KYOTO

Once we depart from the hotel (8am/9am) we will head to Kanazawa station to board the bullet train to Kyoto (2 hours).

Kyoto served as Japan’s capital and the emperor’s residence from 794 until 1868. Over the centuries, Kyoto was destroyed by many wars and fires, but due to its exceptional historic value, the city was dropped from the list of target cities for the atomic bomb and escaped destruction during World War II. Countless temples, shrines and other historically priceless structures survive in the city today.

Kyoto offers a rich culinary tradition and our first stop will be:

Nishiki Market –  Known as “Kyoto’s Kitchen”, Nishiki Market has a pleasant but busy atmosphere that is inviting to those who want to explore the variety of culinary delights that Kyoto is famous for. The stores range from small narrow stalls to larger two story shops. Most specialise in a particular type of food, and almost everything sold at the market is locally produced and procured.

LUNCH

After lunch we will be visiting the the Higashiyama District, which  is one of the city’s best preserved historic districts. It is a great place to experience traditional old Kyoto, where the narrow lanes, wooden buildings and traditional merchant shops invoke a feeling of the old capital city. 

  • Gion – Kyoto’s most famous geisha district
  • Ninenzaka & Sannenzaka – a short walk away from Gion, we will come by the sloping stone-paved streets of Ninenzaka and Sannensaka which were built in 807 and 808, respectively. The old cobblestone streets of  Ninenzaka, and Sannenzaka have prospered since ancient times. These sloping streets are lined with historic Japanese-style buildings that typify Kyoto, even including many souvenir shops.
