JapanQuest Journeys has been featured in the newest editions of luxury lifestyle magazines Town & Country and Departures!

In celebration of their 170th anniversary, T&C’s Priscilla Eakeley presents a Grand Tour around the world in 170 days. Featuring 40 different countries and more than 80 hotels and luxury accommodations, this one-of-a-kind world tour is guaranteed to invoke “countless highs and epiphanies—cultural, culinary, sporting, sybaritic.”

The T&C Grand Tour has been developed by travel expert Wendy Perrin’s elite specialists, who T&C says “seamlessly weave together not a laundry list but a series of unforgettable wow moments around the globe.”

Scott Gilman of JapanQuest Journeys contributes a fabulous six-day special access journey through Japan. He takes you through the heart of Tokyo, one of the liveliest and culturally enriched cities in the world, then on to the hot spring town of Shuzenji with a stay at one of the top ryokans in the country. For the final leg of the journey, spend a few days in the beautiful city of Kyoto and experience some of Japan’s most amazing gardens and temples.

JapanQuest Journeys unlocks some of the most special access experiences the country has to offer. Participate in a private Zen meditation session at a Buddhist temple, attend an early morning sumo practice with an expert journalist, and dine at some of the country’s most exclusive high-end counter restaurants with the top Japanese chefs in the world.

Scott’s six-day journey through Japan is sure to be one of the top highlights of Town & Country’s 170-day grand tour around the globe.

If you don’t have 170 days to spare and need an itinerary custom-tailored to your specific goals, “contact travel expert Wendy Perrin,” advises T&C. “She monitors year-round all the specialists who helped us create this extravaganza, and her counseling services are invaluable.”
