Partake in a tea ceremony in Kodai-ji, a stunning 400-year-old temple where special access has been granted for your private ceremony.
Continue to the sacred island of Miyajima and the city of Hiroshima which includes a visit to the moving Peace Memorial Park and Museum. Finally, it is off to Osaka, the flamboyant and colorful world of Japan’s street food and nightlife where a local food expert will take you on a culinary highlights tour of Osaka experiencing the city’s best-loved dishes - including Japanese soul food!
