This morning, the drive towards Karuizawa will take you through the majestic highlands of Nagano prefecture. On arrival, visit the main shopping street in Kyu-Karuizawa lined with stores selling a variety of local specialty products. Karuizawa was once the summer resort for the Canadian missionary who frequented the area in the late 1800s. Many of the town’s buildings thereafter, such as the chapels and cottages, are distinctly European in style.

Today’s special highlight is a soba noodle making experience. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour.

Later, wander through the streets of Higashi Chaya, a district lined with quaint old buildings that were once teahouses frequented by geisha (traditional Japanese female entertainers) and their guests. Next, visit Kenroku Garden, regarded as one of the country’s most elegant Japanese gardens that combine six qualities of a perfect garden: spacious ness, seclusion, artifice, antiquity, water features and panoramas.

Afterwards, visit Takayama Jinya (historical government house) that was under control by the powerful Tokugawa Shogunate. Besides the main building you will find a large rice storehouse. Before lunch at Sanmachi, partake in a sake tasting experience. Sake (rice wine) is a specialty in this region due to the abundant rice fields and clear waters nearby. After lunch, drive to Nagoya and visit the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology . Here you will learn about the history of Toyota as a textile machinery manufacturer and how it became a successful mass exporter and manufacturer of automobile and automotive technology including robots.

Day 9: Nagoya – Kyoto – Osaka (B)

Today’s morning visit is to Nagoya Castle, which was constructed by order of Tokugawa Shogunate in 1612. This castle is famous for shachihoko, a pair of golden fish ornaments nested on top of the castle roof. Bid farewell to Nagoya and travel to Kyoto to see the visually arresting Fushimi Inari Shrine . This shrine is most famous for its thousands of bright vermilion tori gates surrounded by a dense wooded forest. The shrine is dedicated to the Shinto god of rice and sake and features dozens of statues of foxes; foxes were once believed to be special messengers.
