Best of: Japan in Spring

Japan in Spring Is An Unforgettable Experience

A very worthy “Best Of”.

Jess (Jess McGilvray. View her travel guide specialist page here) has recently returned from leading her group in Japan.

The Japan trip included:

  • Temples
  • Geishas
  • Cherry Blossoms
  • And more!

Jess below shares some of her favourite photos from the recent Japan trip with the group.

They very much enjoyed experiencing the contrast of tradition and modern Japan, the bustling neon-lit streets of Tokyo, the peacefulness of soaking in an onsen during snowfall in Hakone and the elegance of the Maiko and Geiko in Kyoto. Jess ended her time in Japan with another trip to Okinawa to snorkel in the beautiful turquoise waters with some curious clownfish.
