The land of the rising sun has high tech and traditional culture in equal measures, throw in some amazing countryside and you can see the appeal of visiting. In a sense Tokyo embodies Japans high tech, fast paced life though of course it has interesting shrines to visit as well such as asakusa. The cultural heart in Kyoto though, it’s like an open air museum, and if you’re lucky you might catch a glimpse of a Geisha gliding by at Gion. Nature in Japan is best represented by one of Japans emblems, the mighty Fuji volcano. A lot of Japans culture and geography is shaped by its volcanism, sometimes to tragic consequence when an event such as tsunami occurs.


Highlights

Kyoto - There are so many reasons to visit Kyoto, packed full of interest, and if you only visit one place in Japan....

The cherry blossom season - See shrines, castles, and riverbanks serenaded by the spring flowers.

Mount Fuji - One of the worlds most spectacular landscapes.

The food - Yes it’s not just raw fish either! Takoyaki, miso ramen, Tonkatsu, and well of course Sushi!
