Japan is spectacular during its “sakura” or cherry blossom season! Under a lacy canopy of delicate pink blossoms here, you’ll enjoy complete immersion into Japan’s history, culture, lifestyle, artistry, cuisine and entertainment.

You’ll see the best of Kyushu and Honshu – so incredibly different in tastes and sites, yet easily explored on this unique trip that covers both islands. You’ll travel from the sea to the mountains, enjoying picturesque panoramas even as you’re pampered by your Japan Holidays host and local guides. Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Miyajima – iconic sites here and throughout Japan’s south, you’ll come away with magical memories and a better understanding of this inscrutable country.
