Begleite deinen CEO auf einem Spaziergang durch das facettenreiche moderne Tokio, vom Nabel Shinjukus durch Yoyogi Park und Harajuku bis nach Shibuya. Nutze einen Tag zur freien Verfügung, um Tokio zu erleben oder den Fuji zu besuchen.
Tokyo, the capital of Japan, is one of the most modern cities in the world. It seems that every person on the streets has the latest version of everything. Tour the vibrant modern areas of Harajuku and Shibuya at their weekend cultural climax and then spend a day at leisure exploring other areas of this enormous urban land or venture out for a Day trip to Mount Fuji. Ginza, is full of department stores selling the latest fashions, Akihabara is the place to try the latest new gadgets before they become available in the West, and Shinjuku is the fast-paced nightclub area. However, if you look under the glossy surface, Tokyo is very traditional. Ladies still wear kimonos around town, people go to temples like Senso-ji to say a few prayers on their way to work, and couples get married in their traditional wedding gowns in the beautiful grounds around the Meiji Shrine. In spring, couples, families and friends sit beneath trees sipping sake and admiring the cherry blossoms.

Verbringe zwei Nächte im traditionellen Herzen Japans. Du hast genügend Zeit, um einige der vielen fantastischen Touren durch Tempel, Teehäuser, Schreine und Geschäfte zu unternehmen - und vielleicht sogar eine waschechte Geisha zu sehen.
Today we continue our journey with an early morning transfer to Kyoto, the cultural centre of Japan. Kyoto has some of the most magnificent temples in the country which date back centuries. There are said to be 2,000 temples, shrines, palaces, museums and traditional gardens in Kyoto. Starting with a hike up Fushimi Inari through 10,000 stunning torii gates (as seen on Memoirs of a Geisha!), your CEO will help you discover Buddhism, Zen and Shinto nuances as we explore some of the most beautiful temples of the season such as Kiyomizu Temple (Love Temple) or the breathtaking Chion-in Temple where The Last Samurai was filmed. The 2nd day provides more opportunity to explore more zen gardens, palaces and temples in Kyoto, take an independent venture to a nearby attraction or just walk around Gion and perhaps catch a glimpse of a Geisha going from teahouse to teahouse. You may even want to take train excursion to the creative, funky and bustling metropolis of Osaka or the peaceful gardens and ancient temples of Nara, home of Japan's largest Buddha and a number of cute and docile deer, sacred symbol of the Kasuga Taisha shrine.
