BACKPACKING Osaka and Kyoto, Japan (Jun 8-13, 2017)

Osaka and Kyoto, Japan

From its centuries-old temples to its ultramodern cities, Japan can calm and confound. Businessmen in suits occupy the same streets as cosplayers in Tokyo, while ramen houses are equally visible as McDonalds stores. Indeed, Japan is a country of contradictions that can get any visitor lost in translation. Yet Japan draws the traveler in. It amuses with its swaying cherry blossoms and pulsating plasma boards; picturesque hills and lightning speed trains; kabuki and geishas. It thrills us with the tastiest sushi and sashimi and the most exciting inventions.

Japan offers a multitude of reasons for us to go and experience it but best of all, Japan rewards its visitors with gracious hospitality from its people.

HIGHLIGHTS

• Eat the freshest sushi and all things Japanese at Dotombori, Osaka!
• Visit to the Kyomizudera Temple
• See thousands of Torii, a traditional Japanese gate, at Fushimi Inari Shrine.
