Cherry Blossoms in JAPAN !!!

Witnessing the Cherry Blossoms in Japan and visiting this unique country is a bucketlist experience 

Marco Polo first introduced this archipelago to the world as “Zipangu – the land of gold”. Come explore this gilded island that holds on to its ancient traditions and yet offers cutting edge technology, a land of Imperial palaces, magnificent Buddhist temples,natural beauty and man-made wonders.

Japan is a mélange of antiquity and contemporaneity coexisting in happy space. It is pure happenstance that a visit to Japan leaves you with a feeling of sense of familiarity with their lifestyle, that the Japanese value systems and traditions form the crux of their social fabric just like it does to us Indians, helping it form a culturally rich and socially cohesive community.

The pink cherry blossoms or the Sakura season that blooms all over Japan in Spring is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience, not to be missed! We bring you this Signature Cherry Blossom tour, with authentic Japanese experiences handcrafted to make this tour a truly memorable one..

What is so special about the Cherry Blossoms to the Japanese? The sight of these pretty pink flowers brings sheer joy to the eyes of the beholder. In addition to that the Japanese consider them symbols of transient beauty as they last only for only a few days.This short-lived beauty is often taken as a metaphor for life: so beautiful and yet so short and sad.

In addition we have all these delightful and authentic experiences for you to relish on this tour 

Cherry Blossom Picnic 

Japan in the Cherry blossom Season is a Must Do Bucket List staple of all Mee Timers! To make this event unforgettable, Mee Time organises a Cherry blossom picnic with a Bento Lunch Box in a cherry blossoms laden Tokyo park!

Time to soak in an Onsen in Hakone

Rest and relaxation in a thermal  spring water bath is japan's traditional way to melt away those stresses! 

Buddhist Temples and  Gardens of the Osaka Castle!

As you stroll the meandering paths past the bridges which arch out, the gushing fountains in the many gardens, and realization dawns upon you that the Japanese gardens and temples are an analogy to the art in the Louvre in Paris. Most of these are UNESCO World Heritage Sites and national treasures.
