We start in Tokyo, undoubtedly one of Asia's most exciting cities and finish up in Osaka. Along the way you visit some incredible historical and cultural sites and really gain an appreciation of the history of this country.
On this Outside the Square adventure we, will be exploring like the locals do, using the amazing bullet trains and local transport with just a few bus trips when its really the only way to get to a place. Leisa is a real foodie and will introduce us to so many hidden gems as we get to experience the delights of this amazing cuisine. Each region has a specialty dish and we will try them all.
