Japan Travel with a Meaningful Twist
The minute you step off the plane, Tokyo will immerse you in a completely new and vibrant world. With over 9 million people living in the city alone, you’ll experience the unforgettable chaos of Shibuya Crossing by day and the breathtaking views of the skyline by night. While Tokyo may be the largest metropolitan city in the world, the rest of the country practices a serine and tranquil lifestyle.
The world becomes a richer place when you better understand its diverse cultures, traditions, and values. To achieve our purpose, learn new skills, visit iconic destinations, and meet the friendly locals on a behind-the-scenes trip into this endlessly-fascinating country.
- Experience the dazzling lights and sounds of the famous Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo
- Marvel at breathtaking Mt. Fuji from Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park
- Take a class in sushi-making and the ancient art of calligraphy
- Bike around the traditional gardens of the Golden Pavilion in Kyoto
- Stay in a traditional Japanese “ryokan” style inn
“Tokyo has always been a bucket-list destination for me, but I got so much more from this trip. Kyoto ended up being my favorite. One minute I felt like I was stepping back in time and the next I was off on a bullet train to a new bustling city. My kids loved Monkey Park and all the excitement of Japan, and my husband and I already can’t wait to go back. Truly an unforgettable experience.”
