Famil report: italktravel & cruise agents in Japan

Express Travel Group together with Japan Airlines and Prince Hotels recently hosted five lucky italktravel & cruise agents on a six day famil in the land of the rising sun Japan.


Starting in Tokyo the group experienced the frenetic Shibuya Crossing and visited a local highlight, the Japan Airlines Museum, showcasing the history of the airline and opportunity for the group to get up close and personal with their aircraft


Heading north to the Hakodate and Sapporo region of Hokkaido Island the group joined in a regional festival and were treated to a musical and dance performance that has been enacted by locals for generations and brings good fortune for fishing for the following year.



Onto one of the natural treasures of the Hokkaido region with a visit to the flower fields of Furanoand the enigmatic changing Blue Pond or Blue Lake


And no trip to Japan is complete without indulgence in the extraordinary range of local delicacies with silver service dinners, chef presentations and seafood tapas so fresh it could walk off the plate.
