Pawtucket, RI (April 4, 2023) – Collette’s Japan: Past & Present small group Explorations tour gives travelers an experience like no other when exploring the Land of the Rising Sun. North America’s longest-running tour operator is proud to offer travelers several unique opportunities to explore the nation’s culture.

The 14-day experience has been a hit with travelers, who rated their time on the tour to be exclusively-excellent 80% of the time.

Travelers who explore Japan with Collette get to enjoy unique experiences like spending a day with female Ama pearl divers. They’ll first observe as the divers perform a demonstration, then later enjoy a traditional Ama lunch where they’ll get to learn more about these women and their fascinating profession.

Later in the tour, travelers will spend a night at a working Buddhist Temple at Mount Koya. They’ll spend the night sleeping on a traditional Tatami mat, after enjoying vegetarian meals along with the monks of the temple.

Travelers will also have the chance to dive into some of the nation’s history as well. During a two-night stay in Hiroshima, hear a first-had account from an A-Bomb survivor at the Peace Park & Museum.

Travelers can secure their spot on the Japan: Past & Present tour with a departure date as early as August 22, 2023, for prices starting at $5,699 USD pp.

“From neon-lit streets filled with people to quiet shines filled only with silence, our Japan: Past & Present small group tour truly takes travelers beneath the surface when exploring Japan. On this tour, travelers get to explore the cities of Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, and even stay overnight among Buddhist monks at a monastery temple on Mount Koya” said Jaclyn Leibl-Cote, president and chief customer experience officer at Collette. “Our Explorations tours dive deep into culture with immersive experiences and all of the must-see sights of Japan.”
