Butterfield & Robinson has always been on top of the trends in active luxury tourism, and the company now finds itself biking in Japan. Its recently debuted 8-day Japan Biking tour takes travelers from Tokyo to Kyoto, and through all of the rice paddies, Buddhist temples and natural hot springs along the way.
During the itinerary, your clients can expect a moderate to challenging ride along Japan’s western coast, with such perks as an authentic dinner with authentic dress code (kimonos provided), a tea ceremony at a private tea house and a tour of the Kenrokuen, one of Japan’s greatest gardens.
Rates start at $9,495 pp dbl, with a single supplement of $1,000. Four departure dates are available in 2013: May 22, Sept. 11, Sept. 29 and Oct. 20. For more information, call (866) 551-9090 or visit butterfield.com.
