The archipelago of islands, known as the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’ may be a small, but it is home to striking scenery and diverse landscapes. Volcanoes, rugged mountains, tropical beaches, and stunning Zen gardens paint the landscape of the country
Exploring Japan, whether you prefer a traditional tea ceremony – a unique ritual that’s been performed since the 12th century – or sipping a modern cocktail in a sky-high bar, it’s important to discover the diversity that makes this country tick. The merging of history with fantasy and future. Live lobsters from a vending machine; teen tribes dressed in fantastical costumes participating in the performance art ; the electric energy of sumo wrestling; the history of samurai warriors, or the art of the Geisha.
A year round travel destination – Ski in Winter, Cherry Blossom season in Spring, visit the sub-tropical islands of Okinawa in Summer, or climb Mt Fuji in Autumn, you can explore by land, sea or rail, with great options for walkers and cyclists, foodies, families.
