LAST CHANCE – ONE VERANDAH CABIN AVAILABLE Join Sarah Selkirk for a Japanese Spring Celebration in April 2020. Explore Tokyo before our 14 night cruise in Cherry Blossom season.

Our tour takes in a stopover in Tokyo before embarking on a 14 night cruise around Japan.  The cherry blossom season starts in southern Japan in mid March and goes through to early May in the northern areas of Sapporo and Aomori. We will be visiting Japan during one of the most awaited times of the year. The traditions, events, and dishes inspired by the sakura flowers give a foretaste of this exciting season, reflecting just how dear they are to the Japanese soul.

Your tour host : Sarah Selkirk A quick introduction for those who haven’t traveled with me before. I’ve had the travel bug ever since I was a young thing and have worked in the tourism and travel industries for the past 30 years. Back in the ‘old days’ my husband Stuart & I escorted groups of up to 500 (mostly rugby enthusiasts and publicans!) to various sporting events. These days I am happy to take smaller, (more cultured), groups to some really interesting destinations around the world.
