Destination 01: Tambara Lavender Park
Destination 02: Kawagoe
The lavender fields of Hokkaido are famous across Japan and popular with tourists, but for those of us who can’t make the long journey to Hokkaido to see these flowers, there are other options closer to home where you can still enjoy lavender on a smaller scale!
We start off in Japan’s busy capital, Tokyo. After picking you up in one of our luxurious private vehicles, we will drive you to Tambara Lavender Park in Gunma Prefecture and to Kawagoe in Saitama Prefecture.
Destination 01: Tambara Lavender Park (June 19~August 25)
About 50,000 lavender shrubs are planted on the ski slopes. During the peak season from mid-July to mid-August, a brilliant carpet of purple flowers in full bloom covers the slopes. The purple lavender carpet can be enjoyed also from the ski lift.
Entrance fee (separate from Tour price, to be purchased on the spot)
JPY1200 per person
* Closed on Tuesdays and Wednesday
Destination 02: Kawagoe
Kawagoe is located about 30 minutes from central Tokyo and is suitable as a day trip destination. Its main street, lined with Kurazukuri (clay-walled warehouse-styled) buildings, retains an ambience reminiscent of an old town from the Edo Period (1603-1867) and allows us to imagine the streets from past centuries. Thereby, Kawagoe became known as “Little Edo”.
