Located 2,600 miles southwest of Hawaii, the National Park of American Samoa is the most remote unit of the National Park System and the U.S. National Park south of the Equator. The Park spreads across three islands, 9,500 acres of tropical rainforest, and 4,000 acres of ocean, including coral reefs. While remote, the islands of American Samoa, true to the meaning of the word Samoa (Islands of Sacred Earth), are welcoming and offer beautiful landscapes and centuries of culture and history.

The plantings of cherry trees originated in 1912 as a gift of friendship to the People of the United States from the People of Japan. In Japan, the flowering cherry tree, or "Sakura," is an exalted flowering plant. The beauty of the cherry blossom is a potent symbol equated with the evanescence of human life and epitomizes the transformation of Japanese culture throughout the ages.
Downloading Itineraries/Invoices from the Internet
When a reservation is booked, a flight "itinerary" is sent by e-mail (or faxed to disconnected users). Once the reservation has been ticketed, an "Itinerary/Invoice" is sent by e-mail (or faxed to disconnected users). The only difference between the "Itinerary/Invoice" and the "Itinerary" originally sent after the reservation is reserved is the Ticket Number, Cost of the Ticket, Transaction Fee, and Billing Remarks.
Directions to obtain an Itinerary (Reserved Travel Arrangements):
After travel arrangements are reserved, if you wish to access your itinerary from the Virtually There home page go to http://www.virtuallythere.com. Enter the six-character reservation code or "Locator" provided to you by Sato Travel. Next, enter your last name. To ensure the security of your personal travel information, you will be asked to enter your e-mail address. If the e-mail address or password does not match the data in your travel reservation, access to the reservation will be denied.
