Discovery Adventures' Classic Japan Tour
Yes, Japan has the high-tech, neon-lit spectacle that is Tokyo, but seriously, people, don't you spend enough time in the fast lane? Why not slow down a little, have a cup of tea, and contemplate the wonders of classic Japan instead?
On Discovery Adventures' new nine-day tour, you can bathe in a hot spring at the foot of Mount Fuji, stroll around Kyoto's geisha districts, and get private access to a former teahouse to see traditional music and dance performances. A few days of this, and you might even switch off your cell.
And for adrenaline junkies who can't switch off, it's also possible to slot in some high-octane Tokyo time, too.
Classic Japan Tour starts March 26, 2011, from $4,399
