An eight-week journey through Japan, and all from the comfort of your armchair. Ideal for anyone planning a trip to Japan or for those with an interest in Japanese culture, food and sights.

We will look at:
Major cities, mountain villages, seaside escapes and all the big and small sights
Accommodation types – modern and traditional
Transportation – rail passes, shinkansen (speed trains), local trains, taxis and buses
Navigating railway stations and airports
Restaurants and reading menus
Cooking classes and other activities
TUTOR: Helen has been passionate about Japan for years and has planned and escorted several small group tours to Japan for family and friends.
