Travel by the exciting Shinkansen “bullet” train to Tokyo, which is Japan’s capital and at the same time its largest city. On arrival, you will be taken to visit Asakusa, one of Tokyo’s districts that are richest in history. Your guide will take you on a walk through Asakusa, including Sensoji, Tokyo’s oldest temple complex, and Nakamise, a shopping street that has been providing temple visitors with a variety of traditional, local snacks and tourist souvenirs for centuries.

Stop at Harajuku, where you’ll visit majestic Meiji Shrine and have time to explore trendy Takeshita Street and have a chance to observe and mix with the local youth. Have dinner tonight at a local izakaya, a sort of Japanese style pub (alcohol drinks are not included and cannot be served to guests younger than 20 years old).

Next day, you will be transferred by coach to Tokyo Disney Sea, the Japan-exclusive Disney amusement park. You will have a full day in Disney Sea and you will be able to ride attractions freely. Your guide will be inside the park and reachable at all times should you need his/her help.

After the Happiness On High Parade in the evening, you will gather and depart again for the hotel. On the last day you will have a morning at leisure to enjoy Tokyo freely. You will need to check out before 11 am, but the hotel will hold your luggage for you free of charge. Gather again at the hotel and walk to the station where you will board the bullet train to Shin Kobe again.
