Japan – one of Asia's most enthralling countries - is proving to be this year's hot destination with Joanna Lumley contributing to inspiring travellers to a country full of captivating contrasts. The Easter period is at the heart of 'sakura' or more commonly known as cherry blossom season, where locals and tourists alike gather to view and celebrate the magical scenery around them. Usually sold out a year in advance, Wendy Wu Tours added extra 2017 dates in January, which have almost sold out. Whilst there is limited availability for 2017 travel, now is the perfect time to book for 2018. 

Wendy Wu Tours have five Japan tours to choose from, including popular fully-inclusive 13-day Discover Japan, which includes capital Tokyo and its fusion of modernity and tradition, iconic Mount Fuji, the thatched-roof village of Shirakawago, the dramatic Matsumoto Castle, beautiful Kyoto and 10,000 red torri arches of the Fushimi Inari Shrine for the 2018 cherry blossom season.
