Japan tour

Mark and David's verdict
No matter what you think you know about Japan, nothing prepares you for the raw thrill of landing in a country that is so exotic, so refined, so modern and yet so steeped in tradition. Get your pulse racing in Tokyo then explore the serene and majestic countryside of Japan before taking the Bullet Train to the temples and gardens of Kyoto.

Wendy Wu Tours says

With a mystery and allure hard to find in the modern world, a trip to Japan is an experience of something unique; a technologically advanced society but one with an extraordinary depth of culture that leaves its mark on every aspect of society, from Buddhist rituals at the local temple to the way fast food is consumed. Nothing is as you expect.
