Nikkei Japanese Ancestry Tours Series

Our Nikkei Japanese Ancestry Tours travel from Tokyo to Hiroshima with all the essential stops along the way. Our Spring tours feature the Japanese Overseas Migration Museum in Yokohama, a museum dedicated to sharing the history of the difficult lives led by Nikkei's in the Americas. Enjoy the highlights of Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, and Hiroshima while learning about Japan's history and the history of Japanese Americans. Walk through the remnants of WWII in Hiroshima with a visit to the “Floating Torii” of Miyajima. All of our Nikkei tours will end in Suo Island so we can visit the Museum of Japanese Emigration to Hawaii and Jam’s Garden. During the booming Hawaiian sugar-cane industry in the 1800's was such a large operation, thousands of Japanese immigrated to Hawaii in hopes for a new life. What few know is that 10% came from a small island off the coast of Yamaguchi prefecture, Suo Island. With their calm weather and beautiful beaches, Suo Island is often considered the “Hawaii of Setouchi.” Retrace the steps that many have taken trying to uncover their roots in Japan with us on our Nikkei Japan tour packages. We can also customize your trip to visit your ancestor’s village.
