While Japan’s Cherry Blossoms are famous and attract millions of people each year, their beauty is fleeting as they fall to the ground just days later. However, Japan is also home to some of the most spectacular flower parks and Japanese gardens that are beautiful all year round but especially in late spring after the Sakura are just a memory.

We are very fortunate to have well-known Horticulturist, Kate Heffernan join this tour.  You can read more about Kate below.

On this tour we visit World Heritage sites, nationally acclaimed gardens and flower parks, which are woven into our tour as we explore the main island of Honshu. We also include important historical and cultural sites along the way so you can appreciate and learn about Japanese culture and traditions while enjoying the beauty of the parks and gardens we visit.

This tour is guaranteed to operate with 15 travelers booked.
