Shelley Hosts our Japan Cherry Blossom Tour

I can thoroughly recommend this wonderful tour of Japan, and visiting at Cherry Blossom time is simply stunning. There is a very small window of time to see the Cherry Blossom trees in bloom, but this tour will have you there at the right time and it is truly an awesome experience.

Japan is a country of ancient traditions, ultra- modern scrumptiously clean cities, amazing food and extremely friendly and polite people. This country is steeped in history and a visit to the traditional villages is a step back in time. The Temples and Shrines are custodians of Japanese history and culture. A visit to the Gion district in Kyoto is an opportunity to catch a glimpse of Geisha girls on  their way to or from an engagement. The Geisha with their painted white faces wear the traditional Kimono and are so elegant, almost doll like.

The bullet train is an experience not to be missed and this tour includes a journey on this superfast, reliably and always on time train that reaches speeds of up to 320 km per hr

After seeing the amazing Cherry Blossom trees in bloom, I would have to alike the blossom to snowflakes gently fluttering to the ground in the breeze. If it’s not on your bucket list already, make sure you put Japan at Cherry Blossom season on there!

This tour really gives you a glimpse into this diverse and beautiful country.  If you’re keen on joining, check out Travel Team’s next Japan Tour in March 2019.
