JAPAN Japan is a land of diverse experiences: You can walk down a neon-filled, bustling street in Tokyo and enjoy the peace and quiet of an impeccably trimmed garden on the same day. You can meditate in front of Mount Fuji and serene temples before racing on a bullet train to watch an exciting kimono show. One thing’s for sure: You’ll never run out of things to see and do in Japan. See it all on our Japan tour:

Japan Highlights (1)

Takayama(1) Bullet Train Kyoto(2) Hakone(1) Hiroshima(2) Osaka

Showa Day falls on the birthday of Emperor Showa, who ruled Japan from 1926-1989. On April 29, Japanese reflect on this turbulent period and mark the beginning of Golden Week, a period of spring holidays wherein many Japanese take time off work and travel, especially to the best spots to view cherry blossoms. See the blossoms in full bloom on a tour through Japan. www.explorica.com/japan
