May is an exquisite time to take in Japan's highlights and contrasts, and meet the Japanese as they welcome the full green of spring. In Kyoto, Japan's most elegant city, witness Aoi Matsuri, an elaborate festival showcasing people in grand imperial court costume.


For many Americans, Japan is the most exotic place on earth. You can find Western-style hotels and people who speak English, but you can also travel to traditional Japan, stay in ancient villages in traditional style and sample meals more elegant than any served in a Japanese restaurant this side of the Pacific. JOURNEYS' trips introduce you to the remote areas of Japan most Westerners never see. You will stay in traditional accommodations, travel the fabled rail system and explore areas of Japan that many Japanese themselves have never visited.
