Ten Reasons to go on Ronnie Nyogetsu Seldin's Japan Tour
(May 26-June 11, 2017)
This will be the best Japan Trip yet !!
1) Because it will be extremely economical and extremely enjoyable! I have had the pleasure of showing Japan to hundreds of people in my annual Japan Tours since they began in 1980.
Did you know that this year the dollar is stronger against the Japanese yen? The American dollar is worth 15% more against the yen today than it was during the Japan Tour in May, 2016.
2) Tour highlights will include such fantastic places and memories as:
the Great Buddha (Dai Buttsu) of Nara
Japan's oldest shrine (Ise no Kami Jingu)
a walk on Japan's oldest mountain road (Yama no Bei no Michi)
Hot Springs in Ibaraki Prefecture
a visit to a master Shakuhachi maker in Hitachi-Shi
Philosopher's walk in Kyoto
the beautiful gardens at Ginkakuji Temple and at Heian Shrine a visit to to Meian-ji
the oldest surviving Shakuhachi Temple in Japan
a visit to the famous walking malls of Asakusa
an evening of the Grand Kabuki
Four days of the trip will be spent visiting Japans northernmost province Hokkaido. There some of the attractions will include: the Ainu Museum in Otaru, Hokkaido and the famous view of Hakodate, Hokkaido by night.
These are some of the wonderful experiences in store for you!
