Begin in Tokyo, the capital of contemporary culture and style in Japan. During touring with your private guide and driver, visit Harajuku and Shibuya, neighborhoods synonymous with cutting-edge Japanese youth culture, to see funky shops, outrageous architecture and the latest street fashions. Explore Japanese pop culture through activities such as visiting electronic gadget shops, strolling trendy teen shopping streets, spending time at theme parks or video arcades, or touring the otaku (geek) paradise of Akihabara. Also, see Meiji Jingu Shrine, Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa, the Imperial Palace and other important historical sites. Tour some of the city’s best museums according to your interests, such as the Mori Art Museum, Edo-Tokyo Museum and Tokyo National Museum. Sample local culinary specialties at Tsukiji Outer Market and department store food halls. Another option is visiting teamLab Borderless, an immersive installation of mesmerizing digital imagery. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange additional touring according to your interests, such as watching sumo wrestlers practice at a sumo stable, meeting with culinary and sake experts, taking private martial arts lessons, seeing a Japanese baseball game, and visiting favorite family attractions such as Tokyo Disneyland, Odaiba entertainment district, or the Ghibli Museum, which is devoted to the work of Japan's most renowned anime director.

Continue to Hakone, a volcanic national park renowned for hot springs and views of nearby Mount Fuji. Stay at one of Japan’s most luxurious and renowned ryokan (traditional inns), where you can soak in your own private outdoor hot spring bath and enjoy a gourmet kaiseki ryori (seasonal tasting menu) dinner. During private touring, explore Hakone’s geothermal areas, take a cable car ride through the forested mountains, cruise on Lake Ashinoko, and perhaps visit an outdoor art museum or Japanese theme park. Perhaps also visit one of Hakone’s best art museums. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can incorporate hiking or a drive up the base of Mount Fuji.

Next, travel by first-class shinkansen (bullet train) to enchanting Kyoto, the heart of Japanese culture and tradition. During touring with your private guide and driver, experience the best of this elegant city. Enjoy a family-friendly private tea ceremony. Stroll through a bamboo forest. Enjoy a Buddhist vegetarian lunch at a local temple. Visit important temples, shrines and gardens. Tour traditional geisha districts such as Gion. Visit markets and sample Kyoto’s culinary specialties, considered the most refined in Japan. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange a wide range of other unique activities in Kyoto, such as private martial arts lessons, an exclusive private dinner accompanied by geisha and maiko entertainment, watching artisans at work, private manga and anime drawing lessons, dressing up in a kimono, learning to make origami or to cook Japanese food at a family’s private home, calligraphy lessons, privately guided hiking in the hills surrounding the city, or a visit to Toei Movie Land.

One day, take an excursion to Hiroshima to visit the Peace Park and Museum and see nearby Miyajima with its iconic torii (Shinto gate) that seems to float on the water. If desired, enjoy a lunch of delicious okonomiyaki (a multi-layered pancake topped with vegetables, seafood and other ingredients), a popular local specialty.
