Leonie Cheetham, who produced all the illustrations for us. It looks fantastic, and as one of my past travellers, you really captured the feeling of Japan and my tours in your work. Thank you Jason for doing all the layout too. If you would like a brochure mailed to you, go to this link.

From now until 20 March, my City Lights & Alpine Trails tour (19 Sep) is on sale at $3990 (+$700 single joiners), saving you $200 per person. This tour is perfect for travellers who want to visit both city and country areas. Join me on beautiful nature walks on the roof of Japan and along part of the Nakasendo. We'll also see the finale of the Sumo Tournament in Tokyo too. To take advantage of this special offer, get your booking form to me by Friday 20 March.
I'm a regular runner, and I run races between tours. Last weekend, I headed over the Blue Mountains to Orange, when I ran the half marathon in 1hr 31min. If you enjoy running, and can get a small group together, maybe we can run together in Japan in 2016. Let me know.
Cherry blossom hanami at castle sites in Japan
In a few weeks time, the cherry blossom reports will be in the news as the Sakura begin their journey from south to north. The Sakura can be fickle, but this year they seem ready to burst at the 'right' time, which is a relief for me! You can see the predictions here. I'm really looking forward to seeing the Sakura at the Tsuyama Caste ruin site and newly renovated Himeji Castle on my Classic Sakura tour, and also at Matsumoto Castle on my Sakura Highland tour. After my tours, I'm also really excited about heading way north, to see the last of the Sakura at Hirosaki Castle with my family.
Availability for 2015Most of my 2015 tours have now sold out, however I still have availability for:
City Lights & Alpine Trails in Sep
Spirit of Japan walking tour in Oct
Both tours are guaranteed to depart.
In general, my tours tend to sell out at least six months before departure, and with just space for ten travellers, they can fill suddenly, so if you want to travel, please get in touch.
