Designed as a retreat or a getaway from the daily stress and pressure of city life, this itinerary is a remarkable journey into a slower, more peaceful way of life set against the fecund beauty of Thousand Island Lake and the serene spectacle of the regions endless tea plantations.
Indeed, the tea plants and its production is at the core of this trip with guests taking in the daily operations of the Pinglin Tea Plantation, where they can learn all about what goes into making the perfect cup of tea, not to mention discussing the history and future of Britain’s favourite beverage at the Pinglin Tea Plantation.

One-Day Mt. Fuji Bus Tour with Fuji Airways 4-D and Ninja Experience from Tokyo
Mount Fuji, a true icon of Japan, has always held a special allure for tourists, domestic and international alike. And Isango’s day-long outing into the environs of the still active volcano is a fascinating roundtrip taking in the dramatic vistas from Fuji at three different vantage points for some of the best photo ops in all Japan.
If the world of espionage and assassins floats your boat, then you’re in luck, the tour also includes a visit to Oshino Shinobi no Sato, a ninja village where guests can learn all about the culture of the country’s ancient band of hired killers.
