Our tour offers a fascinating insight into the Kansai area, heartland of Japan's culture and history. It offers a whole range of experiences from the urban sights of imperial Kyoto to rural immersion in the communities of Asuka and Sasayama. Our family adventure draws on Oku Japan's strong links with local people and the individuals we know personally. We include destinations and experiences which will delight children - Japanese drumming, feeding the free-roaming deer of Nara Park, creating their own pottery and paper lantern. But all of these are fun for adults, too! The scenic boat ride along the Hozu River complements these destinations and activities. Sharing wonderful moments with local people, families will create memories to be cherished forever. We want families to enjoy unique opportunities for family bonding, experiencing the warmth of rural Japan.
