The Ultimate Japan Travel Bucket List

Ultimate Japan Travel Bucket List

Japan is my favourite country so making this travel bucket list was quite fun. I have spent a total of 8 weeks travelling in Japan over 2 trips and will be leading a tour in March 2017, taking a group of 16 passengers around Japan in the Spring. I can’t wait to tick even more things off my Japan Travel Bucket List.
