Dreaming of Japan? Then take a trip without the crowds or high prices of the busy season

Japan is a fascinating mix of old and new traditions. For South Africans it is a unique sensory escape, unlike any other part of the world or back home. But the Asian destination can be pricey, which means savvy planning to make this dream trip come true.

With the Olympics just around the corner, you might also want to get your travel plans in early.  

Traveller24 has partnered with FlightSite to bring you two deals that allow you to experience the distinct flavor of Japan, without the crowds or higher prices of the busy travel season. 

These escorted vacations in Japan, run through Globus Tours, showcase some of Japan's best.

You'll enjoy sightseeing and ample free time in Tokyo and Kyoto for example, with transportation between the two destinations via bullet train included. In case you didn't know, travel in and around Japan can be expensive, so opting for a tour including transfers is good value. These packages do not include visas, required for South African travellers.
