Description

For over 15 centuries, the relationship between Japan and Korea was characterized by cultural exchanges, economic trade, political contact and military confrontations, all of which underlie their relations even today. During the ancient era, exchange of culture and ideas between Japan and mainland Asia were common through migration via the Korean Peninsula and/or diplomatic contact and trade between Japan and Korea. Buddhism, Chinese foods, Chinese characters and other technology came to Japan via Korea and/or the East China Sea. In this tour you'll experience 2 countries both similar in many ways through our Parallel Japan & Korea tour.
