Have your breakfast at the hotel & board your coach. Today you will explore the sites of the Hakone region which include:
Lake Ashi: The 400,000-year-old Volcanic Crater Lake that never freezes! Lake Ashi is a popular place for fishing, boating, and water sports. On a clear day, you will be able to take pleasure in Mt. Fuji’s inverted reflection in Lake Ashi. Owakudani (Greater Boiling Valley): It is accessible by ropeway. The entire gorge reeks of sulfurous fumes, spewing clouds of steam from crevasses among bubbling hot springs.
Ancient Cedar Avenue: Enjoy a leisurely stroll along this superb 2km flora-lined winding passage; once the pathway to Edo (Tokyo).
After a heavy breakfast, we will check out from the hotel. Today you will be transferred to Osaka. Osaka has a long history as one of the oldest seaports in Japan and has flourished as an open window for the culture and the goods of the Asian continent and is also known for its bargain shopping and delicious restaurants. For entertainment and shopping, the Umeda and Namba districts have it all. Umeda, centered on Umeda Station, has a number of modern arcades which are always teeming with visitors and shoppers.
The Namba area boasts a 700-meter long arcade leading to the Dotombori River, a man-made canal completed in 1615. In the Edo Period, the area along the river was the city’s amusement quarter where five theatres entertained the citizens. Dinner and overnight at the hotel
Today, we continue our exploration of Osaka with the visit to the city’s most prominent symbol, Osaka Castle which was built by Hideyoshi Toyotomi, who succeeded in unifying the entire country in the 16th Century. This castle has been converted into a museum that has a number of exhibits celebrating Japan’s samurai history. A panoramic view of Osaka City can be seen from the observation deck on the 8th floor. The castle grounds now form a large tree-filled park. Dinner and overnight at the hotel.
Hiroshima was a city left in ashes after the Atomic bomb was dropped. Hiroshima has made a remarkable recovery and has been rebuilt as a modern thriving city. The area which felt the full force of the bomb has been transformed into a Peace Memorial Park which holds nearly forty memorials to the victims of the atomic explosion amidst the beautiful garden. Hiroshima is now known as the “International City of Peace” dedicated to a total ban on the use of Atomic weapons.
We will also visit a number of exhibits including the Atomic Bomb Dome which is positioned below the epicenter, this skeleton of melted steel and concrete has been left as it was after the bomb was dropped. It stands as a stark reminder of the city’s August 6, 1945 bombing.
The highlight of the Park is the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. This state-of-the-art museum focuses on Hiroshima both before and after the explosion. It also relays the story of Hiroshima’s rapid rebuild into the beautiful city it is today. On our way back, we will visit Hiroshima Castle. This castle was first built in 1589 until its destruction in 1945. It has been rebuilt in all its glory and is now being used to exhibit historic artifacts from Japan’s feudal past. Come back to your hotel. Dinner and overnight at the hotel in Osaka.
