Lucky to have clear sunny days for Mt. Fuji, Hakone and most of tour - only one day rain. Michelle Obama at Fushimi shrine and unable to reach shrine: police, secret service and heavy crowd of people.
Exception: New Akao: some mis communications by tour leader about hotel and hotel showing need for rennovations/update.
Exception: New Akao - very expensive meal but not appealing - no choices available. Somewhat inflexible to accommodating guest needs.
Exception: very few sakura (Cherry) in bloom.
Sakura, or Japanese cherry blossoms overwhelming trees from the mountains, next to the rivers, and inside the cities in clusters of pink flowers. This breathtaking view can be seen with our fully escorted Essence of Spring Tour traveling from Tokyo to Hakone, Mt. Fuji, Nara, and Kyoto.
