icone-1The hidden treasures of Kansai

Duration: 8 days/7 nights
Stages: Ôsaka – Kyoto – Ôsaka

Kyoto’s mountains

You liked Kyoto, its many temples and traditional atmosphere? Well, you’ll love the pearls you’ll discover in the surrounding area! On the tour plan: religious sites in the middle of nature, mountain villages with delicious local products and the “Storm Mountain” with its magnificent parks and wild monkeys.

Immerse yourself in the culture and gastronomy of Ôsaka

Ôsaka is an underrated city. In most travel guides it’s not even worth half a page. But it would be a real shame to miss out on this fascinating city! On the tour plan: Exploration of the hidden parts of Kansai’s capital, the green oasis in north Ôsaka, the izakaya (Japanese tapas bars), visit to the Osamu Tezuka museum, the father of manga.


Difficulty Level

Important information

  • I offer typically tours during the spring (15.03 to 31.05) and autumn (30.09 to 30.11). I do not travel to Japan during the summer because it’s too hot and rainy. I have also decided not to offer tours during the winter – traditional Japanese houses do not have central heating and I don’t want my customers to freeze.
  • The difficulty level is calculated for active travellers who are physically fit and enjoy walking/hiking.
  • For more detailed information about the Japanese accommodation system as well as further peculiarities unique to the “Land of the Rising Sun”, please refer to our brochure Tips for Travellers to Japan.
