The Fierce Colors of Autumn, a tour offered by Windows to Japan

Is Japan on your radar? Windows to Japan is our favorite destination management company for this part of the world. A Virtuoso on-site, we so enjoy working with Windows to Japan. They understand the idiosyncrasies of Western travelers, largely because their founder and owner is himself from the West. I appreciate Windows' quick response times and flexibility in dealing with issues that come up.

Take a look at these five ideas and imagine the kind of bespoke tour we can create together, working with Windows to Japan:

  1. The Fierce Colors of Autumn - a journey that includes Japan's classic sights, renowned gardens in their brilliant glory, and excursions off the beaten path.
  2. Historic Traditions and Contemporary Innovations - from the old capital of Kyoto, to the modern capital of Tokyo, an overnight stay at a Buddhist temple and a ride on a bullet train.
  3. Family Fun - a tour of Japan filled with activities to keep children active: dressing up as a samurai or geisha, trying your hands at woodblock prints, or making soba buckwheat noodles.
  4. Seven Days - If you've only got a week, you can still experience a lot including a private tea ceremony, a stay in a ryokan, relaxing in hot springs, and riding a bullet train.
  5. Japan Less Travelled - Get off the beaten track and explore islands, small town temples, and adventures free of crowds of tourists.

And yet a different idea for touring Japan... a 2018 Wonders of Japan Cruise from Sapporo to Kyoto next spring. During the fourteen days onboard, you'll visit unique ports only accessible by small ship (just 199 guests) and off-the-beaten-path wilderness areas. All meals, bar drinks, shore excursions, and gratuities are included in this cruise from May 16-29, 2018. Book by August 31st and save up to $6,000 per cabin on categories 1, 2, and 3. Fares start at $15,495 per person (was $18,495).
