FRIDAY 19 OCTOBER 2018 – Tokyo Sightseeing and Transfer to Hotel near Motegi Circuit

Breakfast at the hotel.

This morning, check out of your hotel and enjoy a brilliant introduction to Japan with a sightseeing bus tour of Tokyo including the popular Asakusa Sensoji Temple and Nakamise Shopping Street. After your introduction to Tokyo, you will experience a Sumo demonstration (where else in the world will you get to see this?), including a typical sumo wrestlers lunch dish – “Chanko Nabe”.

After lunch, you will be transferred to your next destination. Prior to checking in to your next hotel, enjoy a Sake brewery visit and tasting. Sake is a Japanese rice wine made by fermenting rice that has been polished to remove the bran. You will then be transferred to your hotel, Rock Hill Golf & Hotel, which will be your base for the next three nights.

Tonight, we will have our first group dinner where you can mingle and get to know your fellow MotoGP enthusiasts.

After a big day of travel and sightseeing, be sure to get an early night before a big couple of days of spectacular MotoGP racing.
