We head out to the Imperial palace which is the primary residence of the Emperor of Japan. It is a large park-like area located center of Tokyo and contains buildings including the main palace, the private residences of the Imperial Family, an archive, museums and administrative offices. It is built on the site of the old Edo Castle and the beautiful cherry flowers in spring.

At lunch, you can experience the daily lunch of average office workers at Tokyo. You can choose one from Teishoku Set Menu, Ramen noodle, or Sushi lunch at common restaurant not at tourist restaurants.

We will visit Tokyo Skytree, a broadcasting and observation tower with the height of 634 meters (2,080ft). The view of the metropolitan Tokyo area from there will be spectacular. If the sky is clear, the Mt. Fuji can be seen in the distance.

Then we proceed toAsakusa Sensoji Temple, the Five Storied Pagoda and the traditional Nakamise shopping arcade which is one of the oldest shopping centers in Japan. Since Shogun Tokugawa (Ieyasu) established Edo Shogunate, the population in Edo (old capital city, now Tokyo) grew as well as visitors to Sensoji Temple. In 1688 - 1735, those neighbors who performed receiving and serving visitors in Sensoji Temple were given special right to open their shops in the approach to the temple. This was said to be the beginning of Nakamise.

Then drive to Akihabara area and enjoy Japanese pop culture zone, the electronic district and the mecca for the anime (Japanese cartoon characters). Hundreds of electronics shops, ranging from tiny one man stalls specializing in a particular electronic component to large electronics retailers, line the main street and the crowded side streets around Akihabara. The character of Akihabara has constantly changed over the decades and continues to do so. In the last decade Akihabara has emerged as a center of Japanese Otaku and anime culture, and dozens of stores specializing in anime, manga, figurines and other collectibles have filled the spaces between the electronics retailers.

After Akihabara, we go to Sakura Festival in Ueno park at night. You may watch cherry blossoms in full bloom.Viewing cherry blossoms at night is called 'Yozakura ' and it is Japanese unique custom.

Now its maximum speed on scheduled journey is 320km per hour, the same speed as the TGV-LGV in France.

After lunch, let's visit Kyoto, which was Japan's capital and the emperor's residence from about 800 to 1860.

Kyoto is the heart of Japan and a city with over a millennium of history. During WWII, because of its historical value, the city was not attacked by the US Airforce. Countless temples, shrines and other historical structures survive in the city today.

DAY 5

Kyoto - Nara - OsakaMar.29/Apr.05 (Thu)

Before leaving Kyoto, we can’t miss “Fushimi Inari shrine”, which is famous for its thousands of Torii gates, generally separating the sacred realm from the real world. All of the Torii here are donations from the general public. Most of the Torii gates are built closely together off and on up to the top of the mountain just like a vemillion tunnel.

If you are interested in cuisine, you would love to visit the sake brewery! Sake, our national liquor, is brewed from rice grains. Not only drinking but also it can get rid of seafood's fishy smells and it can also be used to add fragrance to the food. The guide gives you a little tour inside the brewery followed by tasting.

Todaiji temple was founded when Nara became the nation's capital about 1,300 years ago, in the hope that it would bring peace to Japan. When Emperor Shomu ordered construction of both the temple and Great Buddha back in the mid-700s, he intended to make Todaiji the headquarters of all Buddhist temples in the land.

Just outside the temple is the Nara Deer Park, where the legend story of the Shinto religion says that deer is the passenger of the deity. As hey are protected carefully here, they are one of the symbols of Nara and present a pleasant scene of serenity.

After Nara, we move to our final destination Osaka. known as "City of food". The last visit of this tour is Dotombori.Let's take short walk through Dotombori street to see local food and people's night life. We stay at a hotel in Osaka for tonight.
