Day 17. Osaka - Kyoto - Toyohasi, Japan 16th Mar 2018

After a breakfast, you will visit the famous landmark Osaka Castle Garden. Surrounded by greenery, the garden commands a beautiful view of the castle tower and the stone wall of a moat. Then enjoy some free time in Shinsaibasi, the premier shopping area in Osaka. Around 600 meters long, its filled with trendy boutiques, retail chains, and luxury department stores like Daimaru, UniQlo, H&M, Bulgari, and Zara. Crossing the street and out of the covered arcade, you'll walk into this open area and see that large Glico man sign. Thats when you know you're in Dotnobori. Originally installed in 1935, the giant Glico Man is Dotonbori's most iconic landmark. It's a symbol for the Glico candy company, makers of caramel candy and Pocky. Leave Osaka for Kyoto and make a stop at Fushimi Inari Shrine, an important Shinto shrine in southern Kyoto. It is famous for its thousands of vermilion torii gates, which straddle a network of trails behind its main buildings. The trails lead into the wooded forest of the sacred Mount Inari, which stands at 233 meters and belongs to the shrine grounds. Last visit Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion), a Zen temple in northern Kyoto whose top two floors are completely covered in gold leaf. Formally known as Rokuonji, the temple was the retirement villa of the shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, and according to his will it became a Zen temple of the Rinzai sect after his death in 1408. Kinkakuji was the inspiration for the similarly named Ginkakuji (Silver Pavilion), built by Yoshimitsu's grandson, Ashikaga Yoshimasa, on the other side of the city a few decades later. Kinkakuji is an impressive structure built overlooking a large pond, and is the only building left of Yoshimitsu's former retirement complex. It has burned down numerous times throughout its history including twice during the Onin War, a civil war that destroyed much of Kyoto; and once again more recently in 1950 when it was set on fire by a fanatic monk. The present structure was rebuilt in 1955. Then transfer to your hotel in Toyohasi.

Day 18. Toyohasi - Shizuoka - Lake Yaman, Japan 17th Mar 2018

Drive to Shizuoka City, the capital of Japanese tea production and visit a local tea house. Shizuoka Prefecture contains 40% of the total area of tea plantations in Japan. Black tea, Taiwan tea, and Chinese tea are all fantastic, but after trying some of the best Japanese tea in Shizuoka City, you will find yourself loving Japanese green tea the most. Then drive through the countryside and mountains to reach Lake Yamanaka, the largest of all the Fuji Five Lakes which offers a good view of Mt. Fuji. It is located in the village of Yamanakako of Yamanashi Prefecture populated by many swans. Thus, it has been unofficially called "Swan Lake" Some of these swans are the real animals, others are man-made swans such as swan-like paddled boats added to the lake. Take a scenic boat ride to tour around the lake. It just makes the whole place a paradise of swans! Drive all the way to Mt Fuji 5th Station (weather permitting) . At 2300 meters above sea level, the Fuji 5th Station offers a commanding view of the Fuji Five Lakes area below, making it a popular spot for those who are not intent on climbing the mountain. An observation point with unobstructed views of Fujiyoshida City and Lake Yamanaka can be found at Komitake Shrine behind the shops. Tonight enjoy a special local dinner and taste the famous Japanese cuisine!

Then visit Hase Temple (Hasedera), a temple of the Jodo sect, famous for its eleven-headed statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy. The 9.18 meter tall, gilded wooden statue is regarded as one of the largest wooden sculpture in Japan and can be viewed in the temple's main building, the Kannon-do Hall. According to legend, it was carved from the same tree as the similarly tall Kannon statue worshiped at the Hasedera Temple in Nara Prefecture. Drive to Yokohama and visit Minato Mirai 21. A seaside urban area in central Yokohama whose name means "harbor of the future", it has many large high-rises, including the Landmark Tower, which was Japan's tallest building from 1993 until 2014. The area was a large shipyard until the 1980s, when development began to turn it into a new city center.
