For many couples, the answer is usually before kids came along. Well, sharing a vacation adventure with your partner is a very effective and fun way to spice up your romance and/or rekindle your relationship. Exploring an unfamiliar destination together is a great way to work on communicating and being patient with one another! With this in mind, we work with couples (and families) to design adventure-filled journeys to interesting destinations that both challenge and reward them. Tokyo, Japan is one such great destination. If you have not been, imagine leaving daily life behind for a while and exploring exotic Tokyo with your loved one. If you have already been, imagine returning to share new experiences on a memorable journey! So, if you are wondering about what you can do in Tokyo, here’s a fun itinerary (one of our couples just embarked on) to inspire your imagination.
