I am lucky enough to have travelled to Japan and absolutely loved every minute of it. The Japanese people are so gracious, the streets are clean and the bullet train is amazing.
I did not get to see the Cherry Blossoms when I went and that is why I am a little bit envious of this lovely tour right over Cherry Blossom season. Imagine the photos you could get.
Let's look at some of the things that are included:
This itinerary gives such a good overview of Japan and takes you into some of the most historic places. I love that they include Hiroshima. I found that very moving - such a big event in our global history.
The bullet trains are amazing - so clean - they have staff standing by as the train rolls into the station and they are on board before you know it, cleaning everywhere. Then while on board you are served refreshments by staff dressed in traditional Japanese garb. Everything about it is efficient.
I also love the evening at the Ryokan - these traditional inns usually located next to hot springs are just delightful. You will be provided with a kimono to wear down at dinner and then later on you can enjoy bathing in the hot springs. There is one for women and one for men but if you are shy then you can book a private one (which I did).
Some things to remember about Japan:
Flights are also included (from Vancouver) as there is a nonstop flight from Tokyo to Vancouver - perfect!
