functioned as the political and religious
centers of Japan, along with all their
intellectualist trappings. Add to this a very
fortunate escape from WWII bombings,
and what you have today is a living
monument to all things traditionally
Japanese. Allow us to share our deep
understanding of all things Kyoto and
Nara with you.

the park. Some may even bow politely to request their
snack (others have fewer manners).
After getting your fill of Nara’s bounty, we will return to
your lodging in nearby Kyoto.
DAY 15 – OSAKA – Osaka, Japan’s bustling culinary capital
Just as Kyoto and Nara were the capitals of
government and religion before Tokyo took center
stage, Osaka was the center of commerce. Even
today, Osaka is the largest city outside of greater
Tokyo. It has a very different vibe, and is known as the
foodie capital. Beyond Osaka lies a gorgeous castle
and an enchanting onsen (hot spring) town during this
part of your grand tour.You will visit Osaka as a day trip from Kyoto, as the
