Trip Itinerary

This is a sample itinerary of what we may do on your Cherry Blossom tour. We completely coordinate the events, meal options, transportation, tickets, etc. Many of the places we will be taking you are places we have been ourselves including restaurants, attractions, and izakaya’s. We will be walking a lot and using the train. For more lengthy excursions, we will provide a private driver. Flexibility is key as we may have to move things around due to weather and to ensure that you will have time to explore on your own. Seasonal excursions to Mt. Fuji may be included on your Cherry Blossom tour. A visit to Hakone may also be on the agenda or Sumo, again if it’s in season. Festivals can also be happening. You see there is always something going on around Tokyo!

Reviews

Being a first-timer in Japan, I didn’t know the ‘lay of the land,’ much less the culture and language of the Japanese people. I have been on tours before, but they were large groups with typical cookie-cutter touristy agendas on what to see and do, those were ok.

Tokyo Escapes was different. Having someone like Mica who could speak the language and understood all nuances and current trends of the culture (as well as how to navigate the public transportation system) tailoring that knowledge-base with MY interests made a HUGE difference. It was more than a tour for me…it was an eye-opening cultural experience. Mica made it that way! Fantastic, unique tour tailored to your interests. Put Tokyo Escapes on your bucket list. You will not regret it.
