TOUR MAP


In Japan, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is overwhelmingly beautiful but also tragically short. Sakura blossoms are a metaphor for life itself: beautiful yet fleeting.

Enjoy the very best the “land of the rising sun” offers up. Be spellbound by magnificent feudal castles, bonsai gardens and a sea of cherry blossoms everywhere you go; get up close with sumo wrestlers and geishas; ride the world-famous high-speed bullet train past the majestic Mt Fuji; and, play golf with fairways lined up with cherry blossoms in full bloom.

This fully escorted tour will take you to the major sightseeing hotspots throughout Japan from Kobe (Osaka), Kyoto, Kanazawa onto Hakone (Mt Fuji) and Tokyo.

Golf in Japan is as unique as its glorious landscape. The courses are groomed to perfection and we’ve handpicked some of the best private and resort courses. We’ve added expert caddies to guide you around these golfing masterpieces.

Frequent travellers on Go Golfing tours rate Japan among one of the best. Let our experienced hosts and local guides take you on a magical journey that will leave you wondering why it took you so long to discover Japan.

We highly recommend this tour. The golf courses were great… My goodness, what can one say about the club houses other than SPECTACULAR! The caddies were so obliging and gracious. Their English was a thousand percent better than my Japanese.

John Cox & Penny McGovern, Japan 2019 

Overall a great experience. The cherry blossom time in Japan is worth the trip. In general, the guides were informative and quite knowledgeable. We are normally reticent group tourists but Anne-Maree and I found this group (none of who we had ever met before) were a great lot of compatible, fairly like minded, fun people who developed quite a cameraderie very quickly.

Dennis & Anne-Maree Brewer, Japan 2019 

The whole experience was exceptional. The various venues with the cherry blossom in bloom were beautiful, the organisation was superb and the company was great. My “wow” moment was seeing my wife Helen “out wrestling” a Sumo and giving us all a laugh.

Frank & Helen Woodhouse, Japan 2019 

We ended up making great friends playing golf on high quality golf courses, whilst also experiencing the Japanese culture, architecture and history on the non-golfing days. What a great way to see and experience Japan!

Annelise Neser, Japan 2019 

What can I say!! I am so lucky that I had the opportunity to travel with Go Golfing to Japan. It was a dream holiday. All aspects of the tour were perfect from ‘scratch’ and suited me to a ‘tee’. Pardon the pun. There was never a dull moment. The golf courses were immaculate and everything ran smoothly. Thank you GoGolfing.

Latika Phadke, Japan 2019 

As a first time non-golfer, the trip was great. The accommodation was excellent, the people were all very friendly, the host and his wife were excellent and looked after us well.
