Japan: Temples, Shrines & Geisha Escorted Tour

Let us take you on a tour of the Japan that still honours the old ways – wooden houses, raked Zen gardens, Buddhist temples, shinto shrines and districts in which geisha still glide along cobbled streets like moving works of art. This journey into the heart of old Japan includes a floating culinary experience you’ll never forget – served aboard a yakatabune, a Japanese barge. You’ll also be wowed by a geisha performance and enjoy a saké tasting at a renowned brewery; a tea ceremony in a temple; and a rickshaw rides through Kyoto – Japan’s ancient, imperial capital.
