Itinerary

  • Arrive at any time and welcome to Japan's imperial city and spiritual heart. For your first night out, immerse yourself in the evening serenity of Kyoto with your fellow travellers and CEO. Head to Kiyamachi—a kilometer stretch of popular nightlife running alongside the Kamo River—to marvel at street musicians and experience the cabarets. Find a spot to get to know your new friends and cheers to new adventures!
  • Board a bullet train and travel to Hiroshima, known for its tragic history, powerful survival, and so much more. Opt to visit the Peace Park and Museum, Shukkei-en traditional Japanese garden, or Hiroshima Castle.
  • Take a ferry to the sacred island of Miyajima to see the famous floating torii gate and meet the friendly local deer. Opt to go for an easy hike around Mt Misen, and be sure to sample some oysters – a regional specialty.
  • Catch a train to Osaka, one of Japan's culinary capitals with lots of neon lights and an outstanding nightlife. Spend the afternoon exploring this diverse city with heaps to offer, including Osaka Castle Park, Shinsaibashi shopping street, and the Dotombori Bridge. Be sure to try takoyaki, the city's famous squid snack, or share a group meal of kushikatsu.
  • Get to know this captivating city with a day to freely explore. Check out the ramen museum or browse Umeda's many shops. Get ready to experience Osaka's buzzing nightlife on a final night out with your new friends. Grab a drink on our tab and reminisce the night away!
  • Today is departure day, but do not fret! There is no such thing as goodbye, only until next time. Share some last laughs and exchange social medias with your fellow travellers before departing at any time.
