Land of the Rising Sun
Japan, a country of modern amenities, titillating eccentricities, rich with culture and a deep sense of history. Floating east of China in the great Pacific Ocean, Japan is one of the first countries to witness sunrise, hence its Romantic Title, “The Land of the Rising Sun.” Divided into eight distinct regions, each with its own tongue, customs, and traditions, Japan is a place that travelers flock to for cultural experiences. Japanese cuisine is another important staple with an abundance of gastronomical delights. Many foods are seasonal and distinguishable by region, guaranteeing a unique experience. From the snowcapped mountains of Hokkaido, to the bustling futuristic Kanto, to the subtropical climate of Kyushu-Okinawa, Japan offers an endless amount of opportunities to explore!
What Our Clients Are Saying
"Yampu Tours helped me design a dream tour of Japan for myself and my eighteen year old son, who is off to college next year. They found activities and venues that I had never thought of that turned out to be the highlights of the trip! They made getting around with minimal language skills a snap. Their guides became what I sincerely hope will be life long friends. The hotels were centrally located and friendly, spotlessly clean, and reasonably priced. We had only nine days, but with everything going so smoothly, we were able to enjoy every minute of the trip. It could not have been better. I can't wait for my husband to retire so we can call them again for trips for us together. I especially appreciated how Maggie, my contact person, answered every question within hours of when I emailed it to her. She was helpful in every aspect of the trip. She is a great communicator, and always willing to find special places and activities to fit our interests, such as my son's desire to see the Manga Museum, or my interest in temple gardens. She was flexible, creative, knowledgeable, and always fun to talk to. I look forward to working with her again soon"
