0.00

*THIS IS A SEMI-GUIDED TOUR*
Flight by Singapore Airlines included. Starting in Tokyo, its compact districts teemed with a sharply dressed populace, exotic cuisine, and of course, garish lights everywhere. While Tokyo always seems to have one foot in the future, Kyoto does its best to hold onto the past. Here you’ll find the Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, and zen rock gardens of archetypal Japan, as well as the geisha and kabuki actors carrying its cultural legacy. From the main island, hop on a flight to Okinawa for a tropical retreat and discover their distinct culture, music and cooking.
