[ Individual Package ] Japan's Spring Beauty
~ 6 nights Great Rail Journey with Sheraton Stays ~


Spring is the arguably the most beautiful season to visit Japan. A wide variety of flowers start blooming here and there and weather is generally warm and nice. The highlight of this season is the beauty of Cherry blossom. Because of its short time in blossom (about a week ) and its fragileness (it is easily affected by the weather), people are even more attracted to their glory. This 6 night Spring Tour tries to chase and catch the breathtaking scenery by hopping from Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Hiroshima, and Tokyo using Japan Rail system. The tour offers comfortable stays at Sheraton Hotels in every city. There is no assurance of viewing the cherry blossom, unfortunately because of its sensitive nature, but we chose the best possible travel dates to relish the Japan's Spring Beauty. This package focuses on enjoyment of Japan's season, culture, and foods - join us!
