Japan Escorted Tours 2019/2020
In Japan, the start of spring is signalled by wisps of delicate white and pink petals floating in the breeze. The cherry blossom, or sakura, has begun – and it’s a magical sight not to be missed.
Not only do avenues of cherry trees in full bloom make for a fantastic photo, this time of year has a deep social and cultural significance for Japanese people. Join the locals in a nationwide celebration with hanami flower-viewing parties and picnics beneath the trees on our Essence of Japan tour in 2020.
