Cherry Blossom, Zen Gardens, Peace Pagodas,

Sacred Shrines, Shoguns, & Samurai

27th March - 10th April 2024

Japan’s culture, food, fashion, language, and customs are captivating. Its’ distinctive blend of modernity and tradition is unique.

This tour is tailor-made by our ABTA travel partners at ‘Windows on the Wild’ (flights included) to criss-cross the country in order to experience its richness and diversity against a backdrop of beautiful cherry blossom, verdant greenery and perfect weather!

Japan also has one of the most efficient, highly developed transport systems in the world with bullet trains to whizz us through the countryside from city to city and smart coaches to shuttle us to the more tricky to-reach-to destinations.

We will see cities with experienced guides from Tokyo, their modern capital reflecting the frenzy and effervescence of the country, to re-born, haunting Hiroshima and onto Kyoto, with its temples and historic neighbourhoods.

Visiting arty Kanazawa, picturesque Takayama, Shogun castles, sanctuary islands, hot springs, lakes, mountains and quaint villages full of folklore.

Learning all about the cultures of Samurai, Geisha Girls & Teahouses along the way.

Our itinerary will cover it all!

And just to be sure………….

I have run our itinerary passed my Japanese friend (a perfectionist!) who has given it the big thumbs up. She will tell me where and how to find the best food and enjoy the fullness of its cuisine - she is after all, a Sake Master!
