15 occasions to mark history by the hundreds

Here are 14 centennials and one quincentennial (500) worth putting on your travel calendar for 2015.   Hakone Estate & Gardens One hundred years ago, Isabel and Oliver Stine of San Francisco started work on building an authentic replica of a shogun's estate at their hillside home in Saratoga, Calif.
