TAKE A LOOK WHAT
We felt blessed to see so many sakura bloom. The huge old cherry tree was the highlight but we saw so much. We couldn’t have asked for a better planned trip!

WHAT IS THE DETAILED ITINERARY?
ARE THE DATES AND ITINERARY FIXED?
This is a sample tour. The first person to book can request changes to the dates and itinerary. After the first person has booked, the dates and itinerary cannot be changed. Please note however cherry blossom blooming has a limited date range (last week of March into first week of April). Send us a message using the form below with your requests or questions.
WHAT KIND OF ACCOMMODATION WILL I STAY?
You will stay in a mix of Western hotels and traditional Japanese inns with twin, double or triple sharing (depending on the number of people in your group). You will only share a room with your family or friends. Many of the Japanese inns will be onsen hot-spring resorts.
WHAT IS ONSEN (HOT-SPING) BATHING?
Kyushu is known as ‘onsen island’ so we’ve included some quality onsen on this tour. An onsen is a bathing pool using water from natural hot-springs. It’s a wonderful pleasure and there are many health benefits. If you feel uncomfortable being naked doing onsen bathing you can skip this activity and relax instead. We can also arrange a private bath for you if available (subject to additional charge). Feel free to contact us with any questions about this matter.
HOW WILL I TRAVEL AROUND?
Private bus throughout the tour.
