Starting with several days in Tokyo, plus day trips from Tokyo to Kamakura and Nikko, we will then use Japan's legendary Bullet Train, plus other modes of transportation, to explore Japan's smaller cities and countryside, including two days on the remote island of Shikoku. A highlight will be two nights in a traditional Japanese Inn in the mountain village of Hida Takayama. The included gourmet dinners and breakfasts will make this family-run Inn truly memorable.

*Please note: this is a Land-only tour; you are responsible for getting to and from Japan.  Steve (or one of his associates) will meet you as you emerge from Customs at Narita Airport in Tokyo on the Tour Commencement Date.  Flights from North America always depart a day earlier, since you "lose a day" crossing the International Date Line.

If you are considering arriving at Haneda Airport, or have other plans for arriving in Tokyo, please discuss this with Steve as early as possible.  Some flights into Haneda arrive at very inconvenient times (which is probably one reason they are usually cheaper)
