Travel Advisor
(Return to Joanne's Bio)


I have always been drawn to Japanese culture. I like to plan trips to enable people to experience cultural immersion through cuisine, art, design, architecture and spirituality. Discover Japan by learning from a local - spend the day with a guide.

Stay at a traditional Ryokan, visit a Zen monastery and learn zen meditation, ski in Hoikaido, visit a temple at dawn, take a caligraphy lesson, visit a soba noodle master, take exquisite delight in the Japanese tea ceremony. Go to the Gion District to see Geisha alighting from their houses for the evening. Learn how to create a zen rock garden. Experience the best sushi in Tokyo.

Kyoto is Mecca for Cherry Blossoms - but all seasons in Japan are special.
