A relaxing day to appreciate nature and history
This suggested trip will show you the natural and historical beauty Saitama City has to offer. You may be surprised to find it all so close to Tokyo! Jam packed with Japanese culture, this is a great course to get the “full view” of the kind of iconic Japan we imagine from books and movies. Starting at one of the oldest shrines in Japan, enjoy the picturesque architecture against the sprawling green of the area. Continue on to learn all about bonsai tree culture, with various gardens as well as a stunning museum.
