‘The Land of the Rising Sun’, Japan is a destination that captivates all who enter and offers experiences quite unlike any other. Its culture is entirely unique, contrasting ancient traditions with a modern love of technology and pop-culture to create something distinctly its own; here there is a real sense of the merging of old and new. A similar sense of contrast exists between the natural beauty of Japan’s serene rural towns and the vibrant cities that are symbols of its immense progress. This is a country where you can immerse yourself in the tranquillity of nature among candy-floss pink cherry blossoms, snow-capped mountains, and crystal clear lakes - before easily heading to the hustle and bustle of lively cities, where something new and exciting lurks around every corner. In Japan there is truly something for everyone - watch Geishas dance in Kyoto, take a dip in an onsen, visit the eccentric Akihabara district in Tokyo, there is no shortage of things to do. From the enchanting and beautiful, the modern and inspiring, to the downright bizarre, Japan has something to surprise, entertain, and charm even the most seasoned traveller.
