Full description
Board a bus and head out of Osaka for a day of exploring the treasures in Arashiyama, Nara, and Kobe. Once you reach Arashiyama, you will be brought to a kimono shop where you can choose a kimono to wear as you explore Arashiyama. Following that, head to the Sagano Bamboo Forest in Arashiyama and appreciate the towering green stalks for which the park is famous.

Later, head to Nara Park, where you can get up close and personal with a herd of 1,200 friendly deer. Your final stop of the day will be to Kobe, a historic city that was completely rebuilt after a devastating earthquake in 1995.

You can then enjoy some free time to shop in Mosaic, a large waterfront mall, and can admire views of the coast as well as the modern city. Finish your day with a delicious all-you-can-eat dinner of shabu-shabu hotpot, where thin slices of meat and vegetables are cooked before you in a pot of simmering broth. You can also try the famous Kobe beef steak set to complete your night in Kobe, before you are dropped off back in Osaka at the end of the day.
