Tokyo + Kyoto Combo Packages

A 7-day/6-night combo package offers the best of both worlds.  Bucket List Events guests will experience the Summer Games, Tokyo, and enjoy a culturally focused package that will give you a taste of the magical city of Kyoto.   You’ll stay at centrally located hotels close to local attractions, and enjoy a city excursion with our experienced local guide in both cities. Visit historic districts, iconic temples, and hidden gems.  While surrounded with Olympic atmosphere in Tokyo, you’ll enjoy daily hospitality and a ceremony viewing party with other Summer Games fans.   Then jump on a bullet train and make your way to Kyoto as you enjoy the sights of the Japanese countryside.  In Kyoto you’ll discover the local cuisine and tasty bites, and learn about the interesting history of Japan.  This Combo package is not to be missed.  Choose between the Opening or Closing Combo Package.
