A fusion of dazzling Tokyo and Japan's serene Five Lakes District, this 'urban-meets-rural' 4 day guided holiday mixes the city's bright lights, sights and shops, with time at Mt. Fuji. Enjoy a night on your own before boarding the Norwegian Sun for a cruise through exotic lands on this incredible immersive holiday. Encompassing an impressive castle, citadels, imposing stone walls, motes and a sprawling garden boasting hundreds of cherry trees, Osaka Castle Park is a major landmark and a must-see during your overnight stay in Osaka. Then sail through the Kanmon Strait that connects two of Japan's four main islands, Honshu and Kyushu, and was the location of several historic sea battles. From Kagoshima, journey to the base of the nearby active volcano, Sakurajima, and walk along the Nagisa Lava Trail that takes you through lava fields and offers amazing harbour views.

Tokyo with Mt. Fuji Guided Tour

Day 1: Konnichiwa Tokyo
Combine Japan's larger-than-life capital with the snow-capped icon that looms on the horizon. On arrival at Tokyo Narita or Haneda International Airport, you'll transfer by airport shuttle service to your centrally located hotel. Enjoy the rest of the day and evening at leisure.
Accommodation: New Otani Garden Tower

Day 2: Explore Tokyo
This morning begin with an orientation drive that will take you past the National Diet (Japanese Parliament) and Tokyo Tower, once the tallest building in Tokyo. Stop at the Imperial Palace Plaza, from where you can view the two bridges that form the entrance to the inner grounds of the Imperial Palace, the primary residence of the Emperor of Japan. Continue to Tokyo's Gateway to the North, the Ueno district, and visit Ameyoko Street Market, once a black market selling American goods after World War II. Watch how this thriving hub is frequented by locals seeking the best bargains, then visit the Sensō-ji Buddhist temple in Asakusa, which has been rebuilt countless times since it was founded in 628, making it Tokyo's oldest temple site. Pass through the vermilion-lacquered Kaminarimon Gate and stroll down Nakamise shopping street soaking up the shitamachi (downtown Tokyo) atmosphere. Next, make a stop in Ginza and enjoy some free time for shopping. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure.

Optional Experiences (extra cost): Kimono Dressing Experience // Izakaya Dining Experience

Day 3: Majestic Mt. Fuji
After breakfast, depart Tokyo for the Five Lakes District, dominated by Japan's UNESCO-listed Mt. Fuji. At 3,776 metres it is Japan's highest mountain and most recognisable icon towering over the surrounding landscape. Ascend by road to the 5th Station, a spectacular vantage point at 2,300 metres, before taking a ride on the Kachikachiyama Ropeway (both weather permitting) for views of Mt. Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi. On a still clear day it's possible to see a perfect mirror image of Mt. Fuji reflected in the lake. Later, return to your hotel for a relaxing evening.
