see larger map >>

July 6 to 17, 2022

Bring the family on a journey that takes us to Kyoto’s many temples and gardens, the Peace Memorial in Hiroshima and Tokyo’s Edo Museum, which features re-created homes from the Edo period.

Win-wins. Travel to the stunning Miho Museum, designed by architect I. M. Pei, to view its mix of antiquities and antiques, try your hand at tea-leaf picking, and kids visit a local school to meet with peers. Just for the fun of it. Attend a local baseball game, feed the free-roaming deer on Miyajima Island and stay at a ryokan (traditional inn) complete with tatami-mat floors and yukata (robes) for the whole family to wear. My Hero Academia. Learn about manga, the Japanese art form of comics and graphic novels popular with all ages, at the Kyoto International Manga Museum, and feel like a hero wielding a katana (sword) while dressed in hakama (Japanese pants) at Tokyo Samurai Kenbu.
