Welcome to Tokyo!! A business and cultural megacenter that's home to tens of millions of people, Tokyo is also the crossroads where the Japanese interact with citizens from all over the world. The media love to focus on Harajuku's vibrant fashion, robot restaurants, maid cafes and the passionate uberfans known as otaku.

An hour away from the center of Sendai, Miyagi, Sakunami Onsen Village is surrounded by greenery and crystal clear streams. It’s been said that since the 1200s, samurais soaked in the onsens to heal their battle fatigue. Watching the clear streams while taking an outdoor bath will release all the stress from your trip. Don't worry, if you are not fond of onsens, there are also ”footbaths”. Sakunami is also known for whisky: visit the distillery, taste the whisky, and trace the founder's passion. The area is famous for Sakunami “Kokeshi” (a traditional folk art doll), locally loved sweet shops, and rich forests that spread throughout the tour. Back to Hotel and check In at Hotel.

attraction in Kanazawa. Fearsome surprises are discovered on this very rare opportunity to

discover the complete inner workings of an ancient temple. With no photography allowed inside, few Japanese temples are loaded with such an enigma as Myoruji, the walls alive with the trappings of legend. Central to Kanazawa's rich evocation of history is the Yachiya Sake Brewery, some 400 years old and widely considered to be the best in the region; you'll see this sake served at all of the town's best restaurants. A brew master reveals some of the secrets, guiding you through the production as you sense the essential spirit to Kanazawa. This sake epitomizes the town, exuding a rare almost elusive feel, much like the Higashi District where geishas wander past the relics of teahouses, or Kazue-Machi Chaya District, where Edo era houses are layered in the gentle creeping of moss.

Many can be visited although the following are recommended for their timeless role in the production of Japan's spirit. Yamamoto Honke Brewery dates to 1667, their sweet sake a pioneer in Kyoto's history. Matsui Shuzo Sake Brewery is modern by Kyoto's standards, dating to the early 18th century. Continue the Kyoto journey, winding past the streets of antiquity to the spiritual Tori gates of Fushimi Inari Shrine, a transcendental slice of history perched above Fushimi.

It's the spirit highlight on a whole itinerary of spirits. With the afternoon dedicated to the Suntory Yamazaki Distillery, the morning is spent in the bamboo forests of Arashiyama. Javelins of light flicker through the trees, casting a waltz of light and shadows between the reeds. Wander along the path, immersed in the harmonious show, before the bamboo rescinds and the serenity continues with Tenryu-Ji Temple, the largest Zen

monastery in Western Japan. Overnight at Hotel
