Japan ZEN, 10 nights

The 10 nights Japan Zen Tour allows you to visit the most important monuments and cities of Japan.

The visits begin in Kyoto, the old capital of the country, to get closer to the deepest Japanese spirit visiting its ancient temples and breathe the spirit of ancient Japan. Then we will visit Fukui with the possibility of visiting the area called “Echizen”: Tojinbo is a set of cliffs that offer a spectacular view.
