Backroads of Japan (AJMS)
Tokyo and Kyoto—the modern and imperial capitals of Japan, respectively—represent the perfect merger of the ancient and the contemporary. On this trip, you’ll thoroughly explore both, and everything in between, from traditional villages and miles of rice fields to ancient temples and the stunning vistas of the Japanese Alps. Snow monkeys, geishas, the teeming pedestrian scrambles of Tokyo’s Shibuya district and the impossibly friendly staff of your traditional ryokan are just a few of the locals you’ll meet and never, ever forget. Time travel is possible; let a bicycle be your time machine.
Highlights: Experiencing the bustle of modern Tokyo, visiting the Zenkoji temple in the Japanese Alps, discovering the snow monkeys bathing in the hot springs, cycling the Kibi Plains, exploring Kyoto's temples.
