Fascinating Japan – her ancient culture, pristine natural beauty, and hyper-modern aspect have been attracting the discerning traveler for a long time. Her people are unique – polite, gracious and meticulous in whatever they do…  A small group tour showing the amazing diversity of Japan… from beautiful ancient Buddhist and Shinto shrines, to the natural spectacle of Mount Fuji; high-tech marvels like the famous Shinkansen bullet trains, to the striking perfection of Zen gardens; iconic cities with a mix of the futuristic and traditional; the endless delights of the ever popular Japanese cuisine, the heartwarming joy of sake – her famous rice wine; to Hiroshima – the Peace Memorial Park, a reminder of Japan’s darkest hour, but today a city full of life and optimism…
Join us and experience the spectacular autumn display of blazing red, ochre and yellow foliage as we take you on a memorable journey through the magnificent land of the rising sun!
