September tour on sale! Save $200 per person

September tour on sale City Lights & Alpine Trails

 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.

Orange Half Marathon

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 2015

Most 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.
