JOKOSO JAPAN 27 APRIL ­ 13 MAY 2009 Central Honshu ­ the focus of this trip ­ has always been the hub of Japanese history. The fascinating city of Kyoto was the capital for over a century until it was transferred to Edo (Tokyo). Nearby centres were sites of Daimyo activity, and so contain splendid fortifications and castles. But there is more than history: spectacular scenery along the Kiso Valley and into the Japanese Alps; a look at Toyota’s advanced technology; an overnight in a Buddhist Monastery high on Mt Koya and a chance to appreciate Tokyo’s contemporary architecture.
