Appreciate the natural beauty of this area as you discover shrines and temples nestled away in the forest, or see the stunning cherry blossoms during sakura season. 

See both the most famous attractions such as the awe-inspiring Daibutsu, the Great Buddha, and Kotokuin Temple as well as getting a little off the beaten path (or hiking trail!) and discovering hidden gems tucked away beyond the tourist sites and beach. 

Spend time getting to know your Local Host, who can give you recommendations for other places you may like to make trips to during your time in Japan, as well as more hidden gems they know you’ll love in Tokyo and the surrounding area.
