"Sakura," or cherry blossom, is a well- known and prevalent symbol of Japan.

It is often depicted on traditional Japanese goods and art. The cherry blossom is particularly important in Japanese culture as it represents the end of winter and the beginning of new life and the growing season of spring. In southern Japan, cherry blossoms bloom as early as the end of March. This tour is designed to take advantage of this phenomenon and allows you to experience the world famous Japanese tradition of hanami, or cherry blossom viewing.

This tour is an excellent way to discover the culture and landscape of Japan, with visits to national parks, gardens and "must see" sights of Southern Japan. Start your trip at Himeji and proceed to the photogenic canal area of Kurashiki. Next is Hiroshima and a visit at the Peace Memorial Museum and Park. Learn to make Okonomiyaki (popular Japanese dish) and view the famed "floating" Torii Gate of Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima Island . On the island of Kyushu, walk around the crater's edge of Mt. Aso, an active volcano that erupted just a few years ago. In Nagasaki , visit Oura Church, Glover Garden and the Peace Memorial Park . In Beppu, view the Jigoku "hell" pools of bubbling waters and geysers scattered across the town.

Stay two nights at a traditional Japanese Onsen Hotel and relax in the therapeutic waters of a natural spa bath at an onsen. Enjoy the fine flavors of a traditional Japanese banquet dinner and take an evening stroll dressed in your yukata. Immerse yourself in Japanese culture while surrounded by the charm and picturesque architecture of exquisite wooden buildings, shoji sliding paper doors, tatami mat floors, and courtyard gardens. From Kyushu, take a ferry to Shikoku Island and go on a very special boat ride down the Yoshino-gawa River. See why Japanese gardens are famous in Takamatsu. End your tour with a taste of the world famous Wagyu beef in Kobe.
