Tokyo, Japan

FROM $2,699 PER PERSON | 4 DAYS | $674 PER DAY

Before setting out on your tour to China, stop over in another iconic Asian country — and enhance the value of your international airfare — with an optional three-night, pre-trip extension in Tokyo, Japan. The world’s most populous city, Japan’s capital is an exciting and colorful urban tour de force. It’s also a fascinating marriage of contrasts, where fiercely traditional culture and passionate modernity coexist and, despite its bustling crowds, the streets would pass any white glove test. During our visit to this dynamic metropolis, we enjoy a panoramic city tour featuring both ancient and contemporary landmarks, including a visit to the Asakusa Kannon Temple.

Your Price Includes:
  • 3 nights accommodations at the Moderate-Deluxe Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo (or similar)
