Family adventure: treasures of Japan's heartland

We are delighted to announce the launch of our first itinerary especially crafted for families "Rural Family Adventure: treasures of Japan's heartland"

We created this family adventure with amazing insights into Japan’s traditions to allow children and their parents to discover the unknown side of Japan and to connect with the communities they explore. 

This 8-day adventure gives a deep insight into the Kansai area, offering exciting vistas of Japan from the urban delights of Kyoto to rural immersion in the communities of Asuka and Sasayama.

This family tour draws deeply on Oku Japan’s strong connections with the local communities and the people they know personally. It’s no secret that parents are happy when their kids are happy…they will be overjoyed to watch them learning the spirit and techniques of Wadaiko Japanese Taiko drumming, feeding free-roaming deer and creating their own pottery and paper lantern crafts.
