Travel Stand Japan just launched a Yes in Japan original tour in Tokyo for Spring 2014: “After the War: Fighters and Civilians” (reference W14E). Our team strongly recommends you this walking tour if you are interested in Japan’s history and culture, world war 2 and the post-war period, and international relationships.
Visit the famous/infamous Yasukuni shrine, view relics of World War 2 and enter a museum dedicated to the Showa period that covers the war and the following years. Expect to see army gear, a Zero fighter plane, a special souvenir shop, Japanese newspapers, and old photos! The explanations of our English-speaking guide will be as factual as possible; please form your best opinion about this sensitive topic during your travel in Japan and back home…
