A New, In-Depth, Personalized Journey through Japan's Past, Present, and Future in Tokyo, Kyushu Island, and Kyoto
Discover Japan’s culture of contrasts—old and new, simple and complex, creative and conservative, Eastern and Western—on an intimate, 12-day journey with TCS & Starquest Expeditions founder and chairman T.C. Swartz.
Travel in a very small group, enjoying many opportunities to break away and explore on your own. Set your own pace, enjoying your choice of excursions and activity level every day. Gain private, behind-the-scenes access to fascinating sites. Go where the locals go for great shopping, dining, and more. Meet with various experts, including entrepreneurs, chefs, monks, priests, and master artisans. Enjoy convivial, in-depth discussions and insights into current and cultural topics. Participate in one-on-one personalized classes and other hands-on experiences. Enjoy an open dining policy, with your choice of restaurants. Stay in some of Japan’s finest hotels and ryokans. Receive an extraordinary level of highly personalized service.
And make a difference—for every traveler joining this expedition, $2,480 (10% of the expedition price per person, based on double occupancy) will be donated in the traveler’s name to Mercy Corps. These funds will directly support those who are rebuilding their communities in the area struck by the earthquake and tsunami in March 2011.
