Goway has exclusive spots for Japan’s cherry blossom season

TORONTO — Goway Travel has secured exclusive spots for this year’s cherry blossom season in Japan.

Running from late March to early April, this year’s season is anticipated to be the busiest in Japan in over four years, marking the first time since before the pandemic that foreign travellers are permitted to visit Japan for the ‘hanami’ season.

According to Goway, there is nearly no availability for foreign travellers at this time, with all tours and accommodations already booked. However, the tour operator has secured exclusive hotel rooms and tours as well as a dedicated national guide in Japan for the upcoming season.

Goway’s ‘Japan Cherry Blossom Odyssey’ is a 12-day, small-group escorted tour that takes travellers to Osaka, Hiroshima, Kyoto, Kanazawa and Tokyo. Guests will visit such celebrated landmarks and destinations as Miyajima Island, the Golden Pavilion (Kinkaku-ji), Kaga Onsen, Senso-ji Temple and the resort town of Hakone outside Mt. Fuji.

The itinerary also include three cherry blossom viewings: one on Mt. Yoshino in Nara prefecture near Osaka, where over 30,000 cherry trees cover the mountainside; another in Kyoto where cherry blossoms are illumined in the evening; and a lunch picnic under cherry trees in Kanazawa. 

“I’m so excited about this trip and the opportunity it presents for a select number of globetrotters,” says Brittany banks, Product Manager for Asia. “This year especially, it’s been almost impossible to find space during the cherry blossom season in Japan. However, ‘Japan Cherry Blossom Odyssey’ presents a unique opportunity for travellers to enjoy one of the most beautiful seasons in the entire world. Seeing the cherry blossoms in Japan is something you’ll never forget, so I’m thrilled we’re able to help some lucky travellers cross this unforgettable experience off their bucket lists.”

‘Japan Cherry Blossom Odyssey’ departs April 4 and is limited to eight rooms exclusively for Goway travellers. It is currently on sale until Feb. 10, 2023. To secure a spot, contact a Goway Destination Specialist here
