Trip Highlights

Walk in the Arashiyama Bamboo forest

Have you seen a forest as beautiful as this?

Wake up early in the morning to have the Arashiyama Bamboo forest all to yourself. This place is truly a dreamland. The best part? There's no entry fee and it's open 24/7!


Experts say:

Maria “The light is absolutely beautiful with the sun barely peeking through the bright green bamboo leaves and the stalks swinging in the wind. The wind is making the trunks creak eerily as they collide and twist. I feel like I have entered another world, like a place taken out of the fairy tale of Alice in Wonderland. It feels like a magic forest!”

Visit Mt. Takao

The fall colours are out of this world!

Filled with Japanese maple trees, Mt. Takao is a riot of colours during the fall season. You can take a cable car up to enjoy seeing the fall colours and also get a panoramic view of Tokyo.


Experts say:

Donny Kimball “Mt. Takao is mountainous terrain and the leaf coloration can vary considerably between the base and summit. Keep this in mind when planning your trip. I would recommend you leaf peep when the summit is at the peak of koyo. The red maple leaves at the viewpoint and surrounding the temple are utterly dazzling.”

Sip tea with a view of Mt. Fuji

Enjoy an iconic location doing the most Japanese of things

The path leading to Mt. Fuji is dotted with tea houses and plantations, so make sure to enjoy a moment of solitude at a cafe, with a warm cup of tea in your palms and the view of the indomitable mountain before you.


Experts say:

Shivya Nath “Mount Fuji is not just one of Japan’s iconic mountains, it is also revered by the Japanese people as a sacred mountain. Surprisingly, I learnt that Fuji-san is not the only mountain that is worshipped in Japan. So are all the other mountains, trees, rocks and rivers. It stems from Shintoism – the original animist Japanese faith – in which elements of nature are worshipped as ‘gods’, with Shinto Shrines often dedicated to them.”

Watch a Kimono fashion show

Where everyone plays dress up!

Watch Japanese women don exquisite traditional kimonos with such grace and elegance. It's not just us – even celebrities are in love with these outfits!


Experts say:

Toni & Drew “I’m a huge fan of Japanese culture and the kimono ... even if you have a mild interest you’ll enjoy the parade and a quick look around. We arrived just as the parade was about to start and were ushered up to the edge of the runway where we had a great view.”

Visit the Fushimi Inari shrine

Walk through this intriguing tunnel of gates

The Fushimi Inari Shrine is pure visual splendour. With thousands of such torii (gates) straddling the paths leading to the shrine, you won't ever feel like leaving behind this architectural masterpiece.


Experts say:

maria “As I walk from the Fushimi Inari shrine to the top of the 233 meter high Mount Inari, I struggle to make sense of what I am seeing. More than four thousand sparklingly red Torii gates arch across the narrow pathway that leads to the top. In some places the gates stand so close together that even the sunlight has a hard time getting through. They form a glowing red tunnel that winds itself up the narrow mountain path.”
