9 Day Impressive Autumn Leaves Tour

Tour Description

One of the highlights of this tour is a home visit of an average Japanese family where you can see what a day in the life of a local is like, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You can get a glimpse of ordinary life in Japan, and you will have a delicious home-cooked meal of typical Japanese food.

We will also visit famous sightseeing spots like Kyoto or Tokyo as well as the impressive bounty of nature in the countryside. When we pass through the area outside of the city you can admire the beautiful scenery with autumn leaves. In autumn, the Japanese go out to the mountainous countryside to see the turning autumn leaves. We call this activity ‘Momiji-gari’ in Japanese. Let’s take a walk amid the autumn colors together!

Wifi is available on the bus and in all hotels.

Feedback from Clients

John A. – 2018 Autumn –
We visited such famous and beautiful sights
The guide spoke English that was easy to understand, he was very caring and attended to anything that was asked for. We visited such famous and beautiful sights and I especially liked seeing the historic post towns.

Reny J. – 2018 Autumn –
All sights were very enjoyable, very good selection of sights for a short time
Overall I really enjoyed this trip, in a small group it was easy to adjust. All the hotels and sightseeing were nicely selected. Thank you for making our trip to Japan very enjoyable. Big thanks to Kazu san, Kato san and Saji san for looking after our needs. I will recommend this tour to all my friends.
Jujit G. – 2019 Autumn –
The guide was the icing on the cake
Guide Kazu was such a pleasant personality. He was always kind and very very contentious of his role. There are still such wonderful people. The tour went from the city to the suburbs and the countryside and then back to the city which was very well chosen. We were exposed to different delicacies of Japan and I loved the variety.
