What a coincidence! A bit of history. Your travel4seniors.com editor was just celebrating my 20th birthday way back in August 1945. My Navy troop ship was in Cavite, The Philippines, scheduled to travel to Japan. Our passenger list included 1,500 Marines who were armed and prepared to land in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Now, several generations later, Japan is named by T+L the best nation to visit in the world. Of course, much has happened since that time to change history. Actually, most senior travelers who’ve been to Japan since WW2 will agree the friendly nation is a great place to visit.

Think of cherry blossoms, fantastic ocean and mountain views, colorful celebrations, delicious foods, hot baths and much more. And don’t forget, senior tourist on your way to Japan: If you were a Marine way back then in WW2, be sure to leave your M1 Garand at home.
