When you visit Japan, a trip through the Kansai region is a must! The Kansai region, located in the southern-central of Japan’s main island is considered the cultural heart and historical center of Japan and is well known for its food.
This short trip through the heart of Kansai starts in the vibrant city of Osaka where you discover its shrines, castles and museums as well as its popular food street, before leaving the city behind towards the sacred Mount Koya. Here, you have the chance to visit the Okunoin Cemetary with almost as many legends as there are graves and experience a night in a small spiritual retreat within a temple itself where you can appreciate the silence, prayer and Buddhist meals.
Your adventure in Japan continues to Nara, the city of deers where you delight in its numerous temples and shrines, then make your way to Kyoto where you get lost in its lively markets and parks. A highlight of your holiday is a day trip to the tea fields in the countryside of Tokyo where you can sample a variety of tea fresh from the fields around you!
