Japan Revelaed
Japan Revelaed

Japan is a country steeped in mythical traditions and modern wonders. This journey uncovers the highlights of this fascinating country. Like the history, the country is varied and diverse: from the ancient cities of Nara and Kyoto, onto one of the holiest mountains in Japan, Koya-San; from the historically relevant city of Hiroshima and onto the beautifully preserved village of Tsumago; from the World Heritage Site of Nikko, backdropped by mountains, lakes and waterfalls to the bustling futuristic city of Tokyo. This tour gradually reveals the rich variety of the country as you visit temples, castles, shrines and holy mountains while still mixing with locals and experiencing the real Japan as you spend nights in family run ryokans and a mountain-top shukubo temple lodging. Join this magical journey and experience all that Japan has to offer.

Cherry Blossoms of Japan
Cherry Blossoms of Japan

Travel with Journeys behind Japan's shiny exterior to the precious calm and simple beauty at her center. Join this special trip during cherry blossom season. In early April throughout Japan -- in her parks and gardens, in her temples and train stations -- the Japanese pay grateful homage to the delicate blooms. They display silk boughs on their rooftops and in their shops, they hang garlands of pale blossoms in their doorways, they gift wrap their fruits and sweets with floral paper and ribbons of cherry blossom pink. No one can predict the exact date when the trees will erupt, or when the petals will fall like gentle rain, or when the lanes and fields will be blanketed in blossoms. If you visit at this time of year there is a high likelihood you will witness Nature's spectacle. There is a guarantee that you will witness the Japanese reverence for nature and her annual cycles. The itinerary includes the rock gardens of Kyoto, the castles of Himeji and Matsuyama, the temples at Mt. Koya, and the Peace Park at Hiroshima. We have designed Cherry Blossoms of Japan with the loving care and attention to detail that befits Japan. Join a small group and a gifted guide for a deep, informed, and exquisite experience.

Autumn in Todoku
Autumn in Todoku

Join Joan Weber and a small group of women travelers for an immersion in traditional Japan at the peak of autumn color. Travel by rail and small vehicle along the Japan Sea; through paddy fields, cedar forests and traditional villages; to ancient mountaintop monasteries, hot springs resorts and centers of drumming, drama and dance. The 12-day itinerary includes Matsushima Bay, Hiraizumi, Naruko Onsen, Mount Haguro, Sado Island and Tokyo. As an option, add a lovely extension to Nikko National Park and Kyoto. Consider Joan's invitation in her words: "What I love most about Japan is the attention to beauty, the care taken in presentation of a meal or a gift or a garden, the value placed on a simple aesthetic, the unabashed expressions of respect for people and for place. In a nation which defines technological sophistication, a nation of busy people moving fast, a nation with more than its share of glass and chrome and skyscrapers, it is also possible to find an exquisite calm. This will be my fourth visit to Japan, and my first visit to Tohoku. The anticipation of the experience and of the company of my fellow travelers fills me with quiet pleasure. "--JW.

Guatamala Semana Santa (Holy Week)
Guatamala Semana Santa (Holy Week)

Witness the magnificent pageantry of Semana Santa in charming Antigua, Guatemala, where the Holy Week celebration is larger and more elaborate than anywhere else in this hemisphere. Citizens of all ages join together each day between Palm Sunday and Easter to carpet the streets with intricate designs of flower petals and pine needles. Thousands of purple-robed celebrants carry enormous floats on the carpeted streets from dawn to dusk. The fervor, emotion, color and religiosity are intense, and in every aspect they reflect the unique blend of indigenous tradition and Roman Catholicism that defines Guatemala. On this Journeys Festival Trip, you first spend four days in the gorgeous volcanic highlands, based in a hotel on the shores of Lake Atitlan. Visit Mayan villages. Meet healers, weavers and artisans. Explore the markets of Solala and Chichicastenango. Then bring the insights gleaned from this immersion in traditional Guatemala to the climactic four days in Antigua. We are pleased to offer you very select hotel reservations, which are exceedingly difficult to obtain within a year of a Holy Week trip. Your lovely small hotel in Antigua, just a short walk from the procession routes, offers a quiet courtyard and garden for a respite from the festivities.
