Join the Takayama Festival through Little Kyoto in Spring or Autumn or explore Japan during July with the lively Kyoto Gion Festival and enjoy the seasons like a local.

Gion Festival

Held in the traditional capital of Japan, the Kyoto Gion Festival is arguably Japan's most famous festival, celebrated during the month of July. Be on the lookout for Geisha while massive floats take over the streets of traditional Kyoto during this epic summer celebration.

Japan's Favorite Festivals

Celebrate the Japanese way during a traditional Japanese festival while on vacation. Whether it's the lively Sanja Festival, the Mt. Fuji Shibazakura Festival, or the Tanabata celebrations, immerse yourself in Japanese culture between the highlights of Tokyo & Kyoto.

Takayama Festival | Spring & Autumn

Hidden in the mountains of Japan lies Takayama, home to the breathtaking Takayama Festival held in Spring & Autumn. Famed for the beautiful floats and exciting atmosphere, the Takayama Festival is a must-experience event in Little Kyoto and is often regarded as Japan's most beautiful festival.

Seasonal Specialties & Snacks

One of the best aspects of any Japanese festival are the yatai booths offering mouthwatering specialties like Okonomiyaki or Yakisoba. Indulge on local specialties within the regions your tour explores including Yamanashi, Kyoto, or Takayama.

Traditional Japanese Experience

Experience Japanese culture first hand with a stay in a Japanese-style hotel during your tour. Rejuvenate your travel spirit with a soak in a hot-spring and enjoy a traditional Japanese meal, complete with a cotton kimono just as the Japanese people do.

Hike Along the Nakasendō Trail

One of the Eleven stops of Kisoji, enjoy a relaxed hike from the breathtaking Narai-Juku Port Town as we follow the historic trails between Tsumago and Magome. Spot spinning water wheels in front of Japanese Inns while bells echo through the narrow streets of the town from another era.
