Layer after layer, Japan’s story unfolds on this 11-night journey. In Edo-period gardens with their perfectly sculpted karikomi; In Chiran’s exquisitely preserved samurai homes; In the peace memorials of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. And time after time you struggle to describe unforgettable moments, from your first view of Mount Fuji to the fluttering paper cranes of peace at Hiroshima’s Atomic Dome.
