Geisha-Kyoto Proceed with Caution A country of contradictions.


Tokyo Japan – From brights light big city, love hotels, outrageous fashion & state of the art electronics merging with temples, gardens and of course the freshest sushi in the world – the Japanese cover all bases! Think polite, punctual, hard working, respectful, super smart, beautiful and lets not forget they know how to party! Head to Tokyo because seeing is believing.  No other city in the world resembles Tokyo.

Kyoto Japan – Exhausted? Need a city break?  No visit to Japan is complete without seeing Kyoto. Take a step back in time. Buddhist temples, shrines, forests, geisha’s, tea ceremonies & traditional Ryokans – will bring out the Zen in you.

Where2Stay  – Tokyo

Park Hyatt Tokyo – This 5 star classic hotel (Lost in Translation) will fulfill all your fantasies. You might get lucky and share the elevator with Scarlet Johansson! Recharge on the 52nd floor at their NY Bar, listen to jazz, gaze out at the breathtaking view (one of the best in Tokyo). Dine at their NY Grill (grab that window seat). Leave time to explore Shinjuku, where Tokyo’s tallest buildings meets the wildest and largest red-light district. Does that entice you enough???

Sinjuku at Night  Whats your pleasure?

Exhausted? Make a “fast” break for it.  At 360 mph the Shinkansen bullet train will whisk you away to another reality-Kyoto!

Did too much?   Shinkasen

Chose among 1600 temples (Gold & Silver a must) 400 Shrines, Imperial Palace, Moss Garden (advanced reservations from the U.S. required), Bamboo Grove and the stunning endless orange gates of the Fushimi Inari shrine.

Too much Zen? Go shopping in Shijo-Dori Daimaru and Takashimaya Department stores where you will find unique Japanese cutting edge designers unknown in the U.S. Don’t speak Japanese? English translators will help you shop! All purchases wrapped as gifts and they even refund your taxes! Need to re-energize? Hit the food emporiums in the basement.  Puts Harrods to shame!
