Tours that have been taken in the past have included:

Kyoto

One of the most historical cities in Japan, Kyoto is home to Kiyomizudera (a UNESCO recognized world heritage spot that is a must for any tourist) Fushimi Inari Temple with it’s distinctive torii style gates, Gion, (one of the most recognizable Geisha districts in Japan) and Kinkaku temple (a temple which possesses a roof decorated with pure gold leaf).

Iga Ninja Museum

Located in Iga, Mie Prefecture, the museum not only displays artefacts such as throwing stars and ninja clothing but also holds shows where trained ninjustu practitioners show off their skills. In addition to this, there is a recreation of the type of home a ninja might have lived in; complete with trap doors and revolving walls.

Toyota Automobile Museum

Tatsunami Sumo Dojo

This is one of the most prestigious stables of budding sumo wrestlers in Japan.

Shirakawa Village

Found amongst the mountain ranges of Gifu, Shirakawa Village is also listed as a world heritage site and features an architectural style known as ‘gassho-zukuri’. This style largely resembles a pair of hands praying thanks to the use of thatched rooves in the construction of ‘gassho-zukuri’ buildings.
