There are several reasons why many visitors to Japan gravitate to Kansai. The geographical heart of the country, the region encompasses some of the nation’s most compelling sights, including cities such as Osaka and Kyoto and less charted attractions such as key Shinto temples as well as world-class hiking in beautiful countryside.
This tour takes in the region’s most compelling draws along with a few surprises. Guests start their Kansai discovery in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan, which combines the conveniences of a modern city with amazing traditional sights. After exploring the nooks and crannies of this fascinating city, guests move on to the harbour city of Kobe, famous for its delicious beef and also for being one of Japan’s most cosmopolitan conurbations.
From Kobe, it is easy to visit sights like Himeji Castle, one of the most striking castles in Japan. The journey ends in Osaka, the third largest city in Japan and one of its most friendly and vibrant hubs.
