Our tours feature the best gardens in Japan, where ancient Japanese heritage is reflected in the peaceful aesthetics of nature. Balance and harmony are focal elements in Japanese gardening and our private tours will lead you through the finest examples in the region.
Through our tours of the best Japanese gardens, you will discover the diversity of nature as we study azaleas and ferns, moss and rocks, waterfalls and wood and the harmony they seek to create. Japanese gardens are renowned for their use of natural aesthetics without artificial ornamentation, a method that is less practiced in the Western world.
Japan Garden Tours
Our private garden tours provide the opportunity to study the intricate methods of Japanese gardening, while further cultivating your own passion for plant life. We offer guided tours through the best gardens of Japan including those in Kyoto, formerly the country’s capital, located on the island of Honshu.
Kyoto Garden Tours
In Kyoto, you will be captivated by panoramic vistas as we journey into the mountains and through local villages, while our expert tour guides join you in exploring the country in its peaceful, natural environment.
Kyoto gardens represent hundreds of years of Japan’s religious, philosophical and social history expressed through their care of the botanical world.
Rock gardens, for example, provided a practical way of landscaping during times of war when water irrigation was disrupted.
Tea gardens alternatively provided a calm haven for meditation and reflection for those who practiced the rituals of Buddhism. As we tour through the best Japanese gardens we also welcome you to experience a private tea ceremony and take a glimpse into Japanese tea culture.
