Join this unforgettable tour that takes you to Japan's oldest castle. Wear a kimono and wonder through charming streets while savoring local delicacies. Perhaps take a ride in a traditional rickshaw and have matcha green tea in a traditional Japanese garden. Throughout the experience, we capture your memories with video and photos. Finally, we’ll visit the unique Penis Shrine, where you can pray for a bountiful harvest, the flourishing of nature(fertility), and prosperous descendants.

10:00 AM

Inuyama castle

Visit Japan's oldest mountain castle located in Inuyama. Inuyama Castle, built in 1537 by Oda Nobuyasu—the uncle of the renowned warlord Oda Nobunaga—offers a unique glimpse into Japan's rich history. The castle is surrounded by three distinctive shrines, making it an ideal destination to immerse yourself in Japanese culture.

11:40 AM

Lunch, the third most important meal of the day

A little chill time, we can have lunch at a nearby restaurant, or we can sit somewhere and have a lunch box. We can also stroll around in our next location and eat while we walk.

12:50 PM

Inuyama joka machi/wear kimono/yukata/matcha green tea

A charming street leading to the castle, Joka Machi, which means "castle town," boasts a unique atmosphere with quaint shops, traditional houses, and delightful eateries. You can wear a kimono or yukata as you explore the town, return to the castle for stunning photos, and even enjoy a cup of green tea with wagashi (traditional japanese sweets)in a traditional setting in the Urakuen garden. This garden was created for a single purpose: to serve as the setting for Jo-an, a priceless

seventeenth-century tea house. Jo-an is a masterwork of tea house architecture and one of

only three tea houses recognized as National Treasures.

02:30 PM

Tagata shrine

A mere 30 minutes away from Inuyama, is the little city of Komaki. Komaki is home to the yearly Tagata Jinja Shrine's Honen Festival, one of the rarest festivals in Japan as they carry around huge wooden carved penis and deliver it to this shrine. This shrine is full of phallus symbols, whether of stone or wood and comes in all sizes. It's a small shrine, but worth a visit.

04:00 PM

Back to Nagoya

Slowly we head back to Nagoya, and like with all my tours, I don't mind stopping at a local supermarket, drug store etc., to get some things you normally can't get in the city center

There are two ways I do this trip:

-The "from point to point" way, in this case I follow the itinerary to the minute and to location, you'll be back at a set time.

-The "follow your feeling" way, in this case I adapt to your wishes and keep the itinerary as a base plan. I can't really guarantee you'll be back on the minute.
