Press Release

Japan travel enquiries increase

One month after the Tohoku tsunami, people are again planning their future visits to Japan.

Ken Osetroff, director of Toursgallery reported "We are receiving an increased number of phone calls from potential travellers."

"In mid March many tourists cancelled their April tours to Japan," said Osetroff,

"but now they realise that most of Japan was not affected and they can still enjoy touring everywhere except Tohoku."

The whole Japanese travel industry has seen a fall in numbers of Springtime Tourists but this can be seen as an advantage for visitors who do not like crowds.

Toursgallery has five different escorted small group tours to Japan between May and December, all travelling far away from the areas currently in the news.

In May visitors will see azaleas, iris, rose and phlox blooming in gardens, parks and rural villages on the Best of Japan Tour.

Single travellers will not need to pay any single supplement on Toursgallery's Japan Solo Tour in June.

Toursgallery's Grand Tour of Japan in October will take visitors from the extreme north to the far south of Japan.

Autumn foliage, pottery, crafts and artisans studios will be featured on the Behind The Scenes Tour in November.

Luxury hotels, ryokans with spa baths, banquet dinners, all breakfasts and a private coach for touring make this a stylish holiday for the discerning traveller.

Priced from $6,988 these escorted tours are limited to accepting between only 10 and 20 guests.
