See how visitors enjoy wearing a kimono in the summer as they sip on tapioca tea, stroll through Shibuya, or enjoy shaved ice while dancing at a "bon" festival right in the downtown area! Feel like a part of history as you imagine yourself wearing a kimono in the beautiful, historical neighborhoods in Kanazawa, or dining on delicious food at luxurious hotels.
The long beaches of Ishikawa Prefecture stretch for miles with caves of crystal clear water, and amazing views of thousands of rice fields stretching out in a cascade, down to the ocean.
Autumn is time to enjoy the colorful leaves at Meiji Jingu Gaien and the baths at Spa LaQua, right in Tokyo! Follow along as we head to Fukui Prefecture to see the cliffs of Tojinbo, one of Japan’s powerful scenic spots and natural monuments, where surging waves from the Sea of Japan crash against the cliffs.
