Travel by private vehicle from Kyoto to the Miho Museum, where you’ll find hundreds of exquisite art pieces from the world’s civilizations on display. The building itself is a work of art: Designed by world-renowned architect I. M. Pei, it sits like a shimmering prism tucked away in a forested hillside of the Kansai region. Upon admission, enjoy a self-guided tour of the museum at your own pace, with plenty of time to peruse permanent and special exhibits of jewelry, statues, ceramics, frescoes and textiles from the private collections of Koyama Mihoko.

Your private driver picks you up in the morning or afternoon, and delivers you by private vehicle to the Miho Museum, located southeast of Kyoto. Upon arrival, you have several hours of free time to explore the museum at your leisure.

The Miho Museum, built by renowned architect I. M. Pei, is designed to showcase its natural and man-made surroundings, nestled deep in a wooded hill in the Shiga mountains. Approximately three-quarters of the museum is carved into the underground rock, with a skylighted roof and windows that look out on bamboo gardens and surrounding valleys.

Walk down corridors constructed of limestone to find two wings of exhibits that feature a private collection of Asian and Western antiques by the museum’s founder Koyama Mihoko — a textile business heiress and one of the wealthiest women in Japan. In the north wing you’ll find Japanese porcelain, scrolls, screens and Buddhist relics; the south wing houses antiquities produced by a range of civilizations including jewelry, frescoes, textiles and statues from ancient Egypt to classical Rome.

While there are more than 2,000 pieces in the permanent collection, approximately 250 are displayed at any one time, and special exhibits change every few months. All artwork is labelled in English and Japanese, with explanatory leaflets in some of the galleries so you can gain insight into the significance of the historical pieces.

When you’re hungry, head to the Miho Museum's tea room or restaurant that serves udon or soba noodles for lunch (own expense). Both venues also provide organic vegetarian options.

At the designated meeting time and place, you’re picked up by private vehicle and transferred back to your accommodation in Kyoto.
Please note: A minimum of 2 people per booking is required.

This walking tour is about 4 hours in total, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city Osaka. You can enjoy the seasonal nature while hiking. It is about 30 minutes from Osaka by the train on the Hankyu line. Mount Minoo a wide monumental park, “Mino Park”, which has a beautiful waterfall, “Minoo Waterfall” that has been selected as one of the best waterfalls in Japan. Around the waterfall you can enjoy various sceneries throughout the four seasons from the fresh green in spring, up until the beautiful autumn leaves in autumn.

Minoo Park was designated as a quasi - national park on December 11, 1967 as one of the Meiji 100th year commemorative project. A treasure trove of natural habitats of around 1,300 kinds of plants, 3,500 insects, a lot of wild birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fishes, etc surround the park. The special natural monument, the Japanese salamander, also inhabits the mountain area of Minoo.

After meeting with the tour guide at Minoo station, the tour starts with a walk along the Minoo waterfall hiking course towards the "Minoo Waterfall". It takes about 1 hour to reach the turning point of the tour at "Minoo Waterfall". We will first arrive at "Ryuanji” within about 10 minutes after the start of the tour. "Ryuanji" has been the center point of the waterfalls since ancient times. Here exists a dojo where mountainous training was often held at. Mountain Priests gather here from across the country in April, July and November for a special sacrificial ritual. “Benzaiten”, the god of wealth, is enshrined in the temple’s main hall and is reported to be Japan's oldest of the Seven Deities of good luck. After visiting the temple’s main hall, we will head further upstream.

On the way up, we will pass the “Hideyo Noguchi” statue, an ancient field for training and “Tojin-modoriiwa” stones. Opposite the Minoo Waterfall is an abundant of nature and a large park. “Minoo Waterfall” is Osaka’s most recommended waterfall in Japan. The large waterfall has a width of 5 meters and height of 33 meters. The large drop creates an impressive view at the base where the water falls in front of you with a white color. The water rapidly flowing down from the rock walls has an impressive amount of force. The way the surface of the water folds back upon hitting protruding rocks is very mysterious. When approaching the waterfall, you can let the sounds of the splashing water and the winds send negative ions throughout your body.

After visiting the waterfall, we will return to Minoo station, but we will have lunch at Yamamoto Coffee House on the way back down. Inside the store you can enjoy lunch and tea time in a calm atmosphere. The authentic roasted luxury beans are always carefully siphoned, the rich flavors and slightly bitter taste is known to be exquisite.

At the end of the tour, let’s rest our tired feet from the mountain climb at “Yuzuru-No-Ashiyu”, a foot spa near Minoo station. Leave the hustle and bustle of the city, listen carefully to the great nature, and enjoy the whole day together with nature.

This owl cafe in the center of Akihabara has a unique atmosphere - more like a theme-park attraction than an animal cafe. From the outside it looks like a re-purposed downtown office, but inside it's a fantasy world of sleepy owls, crystal chandeliers, uniformed staff and soft classical music.
The cafe has been open since August 2014 and is popular with Japanese and tourists equally for its friendly vibe and calming, relaxing mood.

There are lots of unique cafes in Tokyo: maid cafe, cat cafe, and Gyaru cafe are the most well known ones. But there is another cafe that will really get your attention: Owl Cafe!

Please follow the rules of the cafe and bear in mind that the owls are sensitive animals. Most owl cafes require you to queue up, perhaps for hours on end, in order to experience this "healing entertainment". So, if you'd like to step outside the bustle of Tokyo life and try a uniquely therapeutic experience but don't have hours to throw away, a Japanese concierge team will be happy to make an advance reservation for you at an owl cafe in Central Tokyo. Available every day for 1-hour visits. 

Admission is on an hourly basis and strictly follows the time of your reservation. You may enter partway through your reserved time slot, but the room will only be reserved for the hour that you have reserved.

This tour focuses on technique and technology from ancient to modern. At the Honmaru Palace in Nagoya Castle, you’ll be amazed by how present engineers and craftsmen reproduced one of the most beautiful and powerful architectural structures at the time with their authentic technique and material. The fact that the craftsmanship has been passed by generation to generation can be discovered at the SCMAGLEV and Railway Park. You’ll see the passage of how Japanese railways have been developed from steam locomotives to regular trains, and from shinkansen (bullet trains) to MAGLEV (magnetic speed trains).

First you will visit Nagoya Castle. Honmaru Palace at the castle was built by one of the famous Shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu in the beginning of 17th Century, Japan. The palace was a residence of a feudal lord of the region and served as a regional government office initially. However, it was transformed to an accommodation for Shoguns that was used only when they traveled between Edo (Tokyo) and Kyoto. This place with more than 30 rooms is gorgeously and finley decorated with wall paintings, ornamental metal fittings, and so much more. The architecture was admired as an Samurai culture themed art museum.

After being embraced by the samurai arts, we will then head to the museum where you can see the history and latest technology of railways. You will see not only the amount of current trains but you will also be impressed by the passions of the technical experts that made our country famous for accurate and high speed Shinkansen (bullet trains). Finally, you will learn how the MAGLEV (magnetic train) will be operated that will start running between Tokyo and Nagoya soon in 2027. MAGLEV is a big reason why our city, Nagoya, has been rapidly growing recently, especially around the main station.



Itinerary

Meeting/pick up will take place at the Tourist Information Center in Nagoya Station, from there, we will take the subway to see Nagoya Castle (mainly Hommaru Palace). After a 90 min tour in the Castle, we will take a subway back to Nagoya Station. From there, we will have a 30 minute journey on another train that will take you to a pier where SCMAGLEV Railway Park is. You will spend 90 minutes at the massive museum filled with both classic and the new rail cars. Afterwards, we will go back to Nagoya Station by train, ending the tour.


This tour operates in ENGLISH. On some occasions, a Mandarin or French guide might be available. Please contact the supplier for availability.

In Kagoshima, deep in the south of Kyushu, across the bay from a smoking active volcano, lies the stately home of one of Japan’s most powerful samurai clans, the Shimadzu clan. Sengan-en is a stately home and landscape garden along the coast north of downtown Kagoshima, Japan. The gardens cover over 12 acres and include calming ponds, gently bubbling streams, mysterious shrines, tea rooms, a bamboo grove, and a mountain hiking trail. A walk to the top of the trail takes about 30 minutes one direction, but it is certainly worth it for the breathtaking panoramic view of the bay and Sakurajima from the top.

Sengan-en, built in 1658, was a residence of the Shimadzu clan, one of the most powerful samurai clans. It has a breathtaking garden that covers over 12 acres in downtown Kagoshima, Japan. Sengan-en and Shoko Shuseikan, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, is the only site in Japan that combines a beautiful Edo period garden with the modernization of the Meiji period and beyond.It is a unique experience and a must-visit on any trip to Kyushu.

The house at Sengan-en lies at the center of the gardens and features a fascinating mix of Japanese, Chinese and Western influences, showcasing the truly international nature of the Shimadzu clan. Decorative, bat-shaped “kugi-kakushi,” or ornamental cover for a nail, adorn the hallways and hide the nails that join the beams and pillars together. Bats were a lucky symbol in China, due to the Chinese word for “bat” sounding similar to the word for “luck.” There are twelve kinds of these decorations around the house, showcasing the attention to detail that went into this magnificent residence.

Walking through the corridors and spacious tatami rooms gives one a real sense of how a feudal lord would have lived. The chandeliers and western dinner service in the main reception room remind you of a time when Japan was just beginning to open itself to the rest of the world, and the house was visited by royalty such as Nicholas II of Russia, and Edward VIII of the United Kingdom, showing the power and influence of the Shimadzu clan.

In the 1800's, Japan was the only Asian country that was able to replicate an industrial revolution, and here at Sengan-en and the Shoko Shuseikan Museum, you can learn about why exactly this was the case and what the Shimadzu clan had to do with it. The museum is housed in Japan’s oldest remaining former factory, built in 1865.
