A LAND STEEPED IN MYSTERY
The Evolved Traveler’s luxury 11-night private journey to Japan begins in vibrant Tokyo where you experience the diversity of Asakusa, part of Tokyo’s shitamachi (old town).
Asakusa is home to Senso-ji, Tokyo’s oldest Buddhist temple, and the city’s oldest Geisha district. Marvel at the Shibuya, the world’s busiest intersection, before enjoying the more tranquil, and lesser seen side of the city, on a bike ride through Tokyo’s backstreets and local shotengai (small commercial streets) in hip neighborhoods such as Shimo-Kitazawa.
Next, board the bullet train for beautiful Kyoto, the reigning cultural capital of Japan, home to 2,000 shrines and temples and 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Partake in a tea ceremony in Kodai-ji, a stunning 400-year-old temple where special access has been granted for your private ceremony.
