Cherry Blossom Tour of Japan

Cherry Blossom TOurs of Japan

Japanese Cherry Blossoms or Sakura as they are known in Japan are beyond magnificent.

Once a year and for only about seven days these gifts of nature bloom with such ferocity they are something to behold. Attracting visitors from all over the world Sakura really is Mother Nature’s gift to us all. Starting their bloom in the southern areas of Japan, Sakura, like an orchestrated masterpiece, emerge one by one moving further and further north.  Luxury Japan Travel purposely designs the Cherry Blossom Tour to give guests the maximum opportunity to witness this natural wonder in all its glory. If there is one natural event you choose to witness in your life it has to be Sakura.

We look forward to welcoming you on tour and sharing this once in a lifetime experience with you.

Testimonials

“Our 2019 Luxury Japan Travel tour featured spectacular meals, fascinating cultural learnings and eye-poppingly beautiful cherry blossoms (Sakura.) We loved the various food styles, from fusion dishes created by celebrity chefs in upmarket and exclusive restaurants to authentic local experiences with lots of sake. Our time at the Bessho Sasa Ryokan near Mt Fuji was unforgettable, with Japanese culture on full display. This was a truly remarkable tour.”

Mark & Wendy Day 2019

Manly, NSW, Australia

As a Canadian, I had the immense pleasure of participating in the spring 2019 Northern Japanese Cherry Blossom Tour. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this amazing tour. It was intimate and extremely well planned. Train transportation from the First Class Shinkansen (Bullet Train) to local trains to subways were our main mode of transportation. Incredible meals every day and perfect cherry blossoms created amazing experiences. We travelled off the beaten tourist routes to experience first hand Japanese culture and traditions and interactions with local residents in a very meaningful way. Travelling with the Luxury Japan Travel group was an immense pleasure – from the first personal greeting at Tokyo’s Narita airport to our send off home. Every need and desire was answered promptly, respectfully and professionally.

Should touring Japan be an item on your bucket list, I can’t recommend the Luxury Japan Travel Team more highly. Their professionalism and knowledge of Japan makes for a highly personal, informative and engaging tour. I can’t wait to join Luxury Japan Travel Team on another amazing experience!

“I had the most wonderful experience to go on a tour of Japan, with Luxury Japan Travel in April/May this year. Our Tour guide looked after our every need; we were able to relax; enjoy the food; the amazing scenery, of Japan. We had several trips on the very fast Bullet trains enjoyed a Bento Box lunches during the trip, while watching the scenery fly by.
A highlight of our Tour was seeing the Cherry blossoms in flower at Hirosaki Castle. Words cannot describe how amazing it was to see so many trees with Blossoms in flower. We had a small group of 11, on our trip. We were grateful, to the special attention our tour guide gave, The accommodation was excellent. The whole trip was very well organized.
