    The ease of booking process and its reliability is very good. Will use again!

    This winter day tour will allow you to marvel at the fleeting and fragile beauty of the cherry blossom tree. Sakuras, commonly known as cherry blossoms are Japan’s age-old symbol of mortality; a metaphor denoting the ephemeral essence in living, reminding us that although life is beautiful, it is tragic and short. This tour grants you the opportunity to view some of Japan’s most iconic locations. Located just 2 hours away from Tokyo, it is an ideal one-day activity. Take part in an all-you-can-eat strawberry picking, and indulge in fresh juicy strawberries in the Yamanashi prefecture. Climb up 400 stone steps to the Arakurayama Sengen Shrine, and witness the beautiful, picture-perfect crimson pagoda, alongside Mt. Fuji and vibrant cherry blossoms.
