Aiki Kai Australia is again planning a fantastic tour of Japan to coincide with the International Aikido Federation congress in Tokyo later this year.
16 Sept Australia – Narita (stay Narita first night?)
17 - 21 Tokyo (IAF Conf. and day trips) Shinjuku accommodation 5 nights
22 - 26 Kyoto 5 nights (Day trip to (Kurushiki and Himeji)
27 - 28 Mt. Koya monastery stay- early prayers and meditation (2 nights)
29 Mt Koya – Narita (tour of old Narita and temple complex) (1 night)
30 Sept Narita - Australia
This is a wonderful trip for the whole family! Those not attending the IAF congress will be able to go on day trips and have easy access to the excellent rail system to freely explore Tokyo and the surrounding country.
We'll be based 5 nights in Kyoto, with so much to see in the area, you'll have time to look at all the major sites. A whizz down the coast on the shinkansen to visit old Kurushiki and the most beautiful castle in Japan, Himeji Jo, will be another highlight. Accommodation will be in a modern ryokan- sleeping on tatami, very Japanese!
On one of Japan's most sacred mountains, Koya San, we'll spend two nights in a centuries old Buddhist temple - be up early for morning prayers!
Indicative total cost Twin Share: only $4,900 departing Sydney
