About Your Trip
Explore ancient and modern Japan on this DreamTrip to the “Land of the Rising Sun.” Travel to the exotic and wondrous Mt. Koya region, known as a significant site for Shingon Buddhism. See the beautiful Kongobuji Temple and the lovely gilded sliding doors with detailed paintings of cranes, plums and willows. Then, you’ll stop at Okunoin, the famous site of the mausoleum for Kobo Daishi, considered an iconic grand master for Buddhist teachings.
The next day, get ready for a full-day adventure in Kyoto. Your 1st intriguing stop is Kiyomizu-dera Temple, where you can take in beautiful views of the city from its verandas. Then, you’ll visit the visually impressive Fushimi Inari Shrine in southern Kyoto. Walk the mystical path of vermilion torii gates that guide you into a wooded forest. Participate in a fun-filled wagashi-making (ornate Japanese sweets) class with tea. End your day in the Arashiyama district, where you’ll discover its awe-inspiring bamboo grove.
In your free time, visit the famed Osaka Castle. Surrounded by cherry trees, gardens, moats and stone walls, Osaka Castle comprises 13 ancient structures that are considered Important Cultural Properties by the government, including Otemon Gate, Sengan Turret and a gun powder storehouse.
