The Land of The Rising Sun, of the secret world of the Geisha, of the mysterious Samurai, and then again of anime, technology and bullet train. Japan is a fascinating land of contrasts filled with plenty to explore. Japan is a place where the ancient and the futuristic seem to coexist in complete harmony, where an elaborate temple may sit side by side a skyscraper and where traditional clothing can be seen next to the latest fashion trends. Experience the neon lights of Tokyo or explore Kyoto’s Geisha culture.
Japan’s embrace of the cutting edge is offset by its reversed cultural traditions and celebrated historic achievements. Crumbling castles, atmospheric Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines and fascinating festivals are never far away, with historic highlights including the striking Himeji Castle and Kyoto’s iconic Temple of the Golden Pavilion.
Japan is also a country swathed in natural beauty. Ski the powdery slopes of Hokkaido, revel in the springtime beauty of the Sakura cherry blossoms, frolic in the sun-drenched beaches and turquoise waters of subtropical Okinawa, or climb up the iconic Mount Fuji. Wherever you go, good food is guaranteed – from fresh sushi and sashimi to robata-fired meats and sizzling sauces, Japan is a joy for gastronomes.
The capital, Tokyo, is a dazzling whirl of activity, with the neon signs, the crush of people, and the perfectly punctual, high-speed trains. There is also a varied cultural landscape full of futuristic skyscrapers, those centuries-old temples, sophisticated hotels, and enticing restaurants. There are endless discoveries to made in Tokyo and Japan.
