JAPAN AND VLADIVOSTOK - WITH GREENTOURS

 

DATES:  26 May - 9 June 2018

LEADERS:  Ian Green, Shigeto Tsukie & Andrey Kozhenikov

COST:  TBC 

 

WHY VISIT?
 

The south of Japan's scenic archipelago enjoys a sub-tropical climate. The northernmost parts of the island chain, however, have more in common with Siberia. 

Visiting in June, therefore, allows us to discover early spring bulbs and the exotic flora of lower latitude and elevations.
