Day 1: Tokyo (-/-/-)
Sensou-ji Temple Arrival at 10:00 Depart at 11:00
Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa Daito-ku，Tokyo，is one of Japan’s most distinguished tourist spots and is very popular among foreigners too. It’s most distinct trait is the large Raimon gate at the entrance. Even if you have yet to visit，you probably have seen pictures of the big red lantern. You’ll find sweets and souvenir stalls on either side of the path leading to Hozomon from Raimon.
The Five-story Pagoda and Nitenmon are other highlights for your visit，giving the placerare historical value，and being in Tokyo it is easy to access from Narita International Airport.
Since 2003 Senso-ji Temple has been illuminated at night as part of the Commemorative Events of the 400th Anniversary of the start of the Edo Bakufu. You should visit at night as well for a different feeling of the place.
Tokyo Sky Tree Arrival at 11:00 Depart at 12:00
Tokyo Sky Tree，at 634m，is the highest free-standing broadcasting tower in the world. It is said that the height of the Sky Tree was made to be 634m as a pun – the combined area of the prefectures of Tokyo，Kanagawa and Saitama used to be called Musashi-nokuni (634 can be read as mu-sa-shi). Tokyo Sky Tree was built with an image of a tree that grows towards the sky. It was built with the hope that people from all over the world can gather and create a new culture.
The observatory deck of the tower has a 360°5m glass glazing，and the night view from there makes you feel as if you’re staring into a jewelry box. What we advise you to experience above anything else is the glass-flooring. The thrill you will experience from seeing straight through the glass-floor is sensational.
In the Tokyo Sky Tree you can enjoy Japanese food and buy exclusive souvenirs. It will give you a good memory of Tokyo.
Ginza Arrival at 14:00 Depart at 15:30
The name Ginza originates from the Edo-era where the town was used for minting silver (Gin) coins. It is also the reason why the Kabuki-culture has stuck，where superficial beauty is pursued，making it the most renowned amusement district in Japan. The main street of Ginza is popular among foreigners too where many international brand
stores and long-standing department stores line up. It is a town that is loved by people of all age groups and you can enjoy almost anything here from fashion，culture to food. The night view is also something to behold，and during Christmas season people often stop in their paths to take pictures of the beautiful Christmas decorations and illuminations.
In walking distance from Ginza Main Street is Kabuki-za，the pantheon of the traditional Japanese performance art.
Rows of fans queuing up to buy tickets are typical of Ginza.
Akihabara Arrival at 16:00 Depart at 17:30
Akihabara is a pop-culture sanctuary and the world’s largest scale electric town. Anime-culture is so much a part of Japanese culture these days that it is usually the first image that springs to mind when foreigners think of Japan. Akihabara is the center of the Anime，gaming and popular culture of Japan. Akihabara is also the birthplace of the successful AKB48 group，and is home to the AKB48 Theater where you can buy official goods and attend live shows. The tickets for the live shows are sold by lottery and so many people gather in fornt of the Theater every day in order to see the results. The Maid Cafes，where waitresses are dressed as maids，are another popular tourist attraction of Akihabara. Waitresses dressed-up in ways you only thought possible in the anime world will serve you. It is popular with the Japanese as well as foreigners as anyone
can feel like a master or a mistress. We recommend this place if you’re looking to experience some alternative Japanese

Also, visitors can enter the interior of the Buddha. The interior is separated into 5 floors, and each floor represents a fantastic world of Buddhism.

grassland, cycling and BMX tracks, a forest athletics field, BBQs surrounding by nature, and
many cafes and restaurants.
Shinjuku Shopping Arrival at 15:00 Depart at 18:00
Nearby Shibuya, packed and buzzing by day, is empty and echoing by 2am. Ginza, with Tokyo’s biggest commercial turnover, is only fun as long as you have a very full wallet. And Ikebukuro is still snapping at the others’ heels when it comes to scale and urbanity. The scale and range of goods and services on offer in Shinjuku is breathtaking. This guide will introduce to you Shinjuku’s main shops, department stores, and shopping centers.
Mere descriptions of the main shopping attractions cannot convey the energy and bustle of this non-stop retail hive, this dense shopping jungle. On the ground, Shinjuku is vastly more than its main features. Alleys, nooks and crannies abound. It is almost as much underground as it is above ground, making for a very 3D shopping experience where going up and down stairs, escalators and elevators is as much a part of it as getting from point to point on the map. The best advice: explore and enjoy it all without worrying about exactly where you are at every moment. It’s safe, and it’s within a small enough area that you’ll pop back up, or get back down, to street level somewhere and eventually make sense of it! Shinjuku is a large ward, and the shopping referred to here is focused on the Shinjuku Station area.
Day 3 (-/-/-)
Arrival at 8:00 Depart at 9:30
When thinking of the ancient cities of Japan，Kyoto and Nara of the West and Kamakura of the East spring to mind.
Not only was Kamakura the political centre of the country，but it is also rich in nature with it being surrounded by mountains and the sea. It has been a tourist destination for over 400 years. In recent years many Japanese artists and authors have gathered to Kamakura，giving it a reputation as a cultural centre. Starting with Kotoku-in and Tsuruoka-Hachiman-gu Shrine which are famous for Kamakura-no-Daibutsu (The Great Buddha of Kamakura)，there are over 100 historical sites to be seen and experienced in Kamakura in order to understand its culture and history. You can also enjoy marine sports at Shonan beach，and we recommend you enjoy the local cuisine making good use of Ancient Kamakura ingredients. Kamakura is a tourist destination where you can enjoy history，nature and food.
Hakone Hakone Kowakien Yunessun Hakone Kowakien Yunessun is a hot spa leisure facility in the center of Hakone, a
representative hot spring resort in Japan. It is aptly described as a “Hot spring theme park,” and numerous unique baths please couples and families. The facility is divided into zones to be entered with bathing suits on and zones to be entered without any clothes on. The main facility of the amusement zone where you wear a bathing suit is the God’s Aegean
Sea, which is a large-sized spa. There are also many numerous humorous-style baths, including Wine Spa, where there is
a huge wine bottle 3.6 m tall and you can enjoy the rich aroma, Green Tea Spa containing rich catechins, Coffee Spa, which contains coffee extracted from coffee nibs using the drip method in the relatively low temperature of hot springs, and Japanese Sake Spa, where real Japanese sake constantly drips into the bathtub from a huge cask. If you are lucky, you
can get coffee poured on your head in the regular performances of adding coffee into the bathtub a few times a day. A special recommendation for women is foot bathing with doctor fish, which nibble away at old dead cells from the skin. The cypress bath and open-air baths in the no-clothes zone are definitely high quality, as you can expect from a hot spring in Hakone. You can spend a relaxing time by looking at the mountains of Hakone.

Mt.Fuji 5th station

The best place to appreciate this symbol of Japan is the fifth station of Mt. Fuji at sunrise. Mt. Fuji is said to be a sanctuary and is deemed to have special powers. Goraiko (Rising Sun) Tours are organized. Each station of Mt. Fuji has something different for you to enjoy，such as the Suzuhara Shrine at the 1st station，the historical Fuji-Omuro-Sengan Shrine at the 2nd station，and virgin forests at the 3rd and 4th stations. When scaling Mt. Fuji by foot，one can feel the pleasures of nature. For those who aren’t keen on hiking，the Fuji Subaru Line will allow you to reach the 5th station by car. If you’re tired from the hiking，you can go to the hot springs at the foot of the mountain. You’ll be able to admire Mt. Fuji from a different angle as you relax in the hot spring.
Oshino Hakkai Arrival at 11:00 Depart at 12:00
In the south-east of Yamanashi prefecture，to the north of Mt. Fuji，is Oshino-mura Village. We recommend you see the Oshino-Hakkai (8 lakes) there.

The Palette Town Daikanransha (Ferris wheel) measures 115m and is a symbol of Odaiba. Try a romantic ride on which you’ll be able to see Tokyo Tower，Sky Tree，Tokyo Gate Bridge and Rainbow Bridge. The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan) is in Odaiba too and you’ll be able to discover and experience some cutting edge technologies. We also recommend the Oedo Onsen Monogatari，which is a slightly unusual theme-park. The onsen theme-park is modeled after the ancient town of Edo，and by wearing bright coloured Yukata (bathrobes) you’ll feel as if you have slipped back in time to the Edo-era. Other than Natural Onsens there are mixed Sand Baths and Footbaths to be enjoyed as a couple. Fuji Television is another landmark of Odaiba，where you can see actual and participate in actual TV programs and buy official goods.
