What to Expect

You might know that there are many castles in Japan. But did you know there had been about 200 castles in Japan in the late 19th century, but there are only 12 castles keeping their original style. Inuyama castle designated as National Treasure is one of them and the oldest castle in the country. I am sure you will enjoy the inside the castle where you can feel the atmosphere of the samurai warriors at the time. We visit the castle after passing through nice red gates of a Shinto shrine.

After looking around the historical castle, I would show you around the castle town. There are several museums associated with the castle and the famous festival held once a year which features 13 gorgeously decorated high wheel floats. Visiting them with me will help you build the familiarity with Japan. When it comes to lunch, you can choose your favorite out of my recommendation such as tofu dishes, Japanese style of set meal.

After strolling around the castle town, we visit Urakuen. It is a Japanese style garden including several tea houses, one of which is historical tea house called "Joan (national treasure)". You can enjoy the beautiful garden depending on the season, cherry blossom in spring, fresh green in summer, changing beautiful colors of leaves in autumn and snowy view in winter. This place will make you feel calm and relax because the spirit of the Japanese tea ceremony exists inside the garden. I would recommend that you have Japanese tea called matcha and Japanese confectionery. I will show you how to drink it based on the certain way of having tea.

I love this area and I hope you know the charm of this place as well.
I am looking forward to seeing you.
