Niigata, Sado Island & Tokyo Spring 2019 Tour

April 13-23, 2019 – from Honolulu

From: $3,595 per person double or triple occupancy; $3,895 single occupancy


Little visited and often overlooked, Niigata is a beautiful remote region with fabulous sights, great food and excellent countryside landscapes -deserving much more attention than it gets.

Located nearly 200 miles northwest from Tokyo, the Niigata-Sado Island region offers visitors a very different experience to the hustle and bustle of the Tokaido seaboard.

On this spring time tour, we have included 2 nights on Sado Island with accommodations at the recently opened Tabino Hotel Sado and hands-on experiences that include fruit picking, daruma doll painting, glass orgel making and senbei making. More, yes, much more…ride a tarbi bune (traditional washtub boat), a sake brewery visit and bullet train!    

Not so quick, as we have added three nights in Tokyo for that big city feel. Here we will be visiting the more popular spots, Tsukiji, Ameyoko. Ueno Zoo to see the pandas and the Samurai Museum. We also included a complete free day for shopping or sightseeing on your own
