AS much as the rental of a cottage at .i the seashore! Or as much as its run ningexpenses for the season! Or hardly as much as a cheap automobile! That's all. Yet you will have at least six weeks of luxurious First Class travel on the Pacific and in the Orient to show for it! If you go tourist, the cost is considerably less. In many respects a trip to Japan is the cheapest vacation you can take this summer-consider ing the things you do and see, and the life-long memories you store up! The amazingly low cost is due to three fortunate circumstances: Steamship fares are the lowest in the world for the distance traveled and quality of service; the yen exchange is heavily in your favor; and the Japan Tourist Bureau provides a series of all inclusive itineraries showing you The Island Empire at lowest expense!
