Feel like you are on the set of a sci- fi movie as you explore the city, admiring the incredible architecture and striking design of futuristic mega-malls, edgy boutiques, and a visit to the outside of the iconic Tokyo Tour - piercing the skies at an impressive 333 meters of height.

Discover the secrets behind the brewing process and enjoy a beer tasting when you pay a visit to the world-famous Asahi Brewery, then take a very scenic ride on the Hakone Ropeway over Owakudani, the active volcanic zone created during the last eruption of Mount Hakone, some 3000 years ago.

On the way to Okayama, stop in Osaka, taste the most popular variety of Sake: the Kiku-Masamune Sake. After a morning of sake tasting, enjoy a traditional Wagyu beef lunch in Kobe.
One of the three most beautiful gardens in Japan, Okayama Korakuen is a sterling example of the precepts of Japanese garden design, featuring expansive lawns dotted with ponds, teahouses and a small tea plantation. Walk the perfectly manicured gardens and embrace the serenity of this beautiful place.
