'Where tradition and modernity meet'

The Japanese archipelago has long been a popular destination of more adventurous travellers, and with high-tech Tokyo and lively Osaka increasingly popular destinations for long-haul stopovers, and Japanese culture more stylish than ever, there has never been a more perfect time to explore this multifaceted country.

While the vibrant cities won’t fail to impress those looking for clichés of the Japanese success story – bullet trains, skyscrapers, trendy nightlife and rampant consumerism – underneath the brash modernity beats an ancient heart. This is the realm of shoguns and emperors, the exquisite art of the geisha and the skill and power of the sumo wrestler. A land of much natural exquisiteness where ancient festivals are celebrated according to the seasons and food is an art form.

Excellent public transportation throughout Japan means everywhere is very easily accessible, from the lavender farms and snow festivals of the northern isle of Hokkaido, to Kyoto’s shrines and temples and the sun-drenched beaches of the subtropical south,

Japan is among the harmless countries in the world, and there’s no need to worry about the language barrier – the Japanese are consistently friendly and help is always readily available. Whether you choose to climb Mount Fuji or chill out at volcanic hot spring resorts, marvel in traditional performing arts or lose yourself in high-tech wonderland, Japan is truly an unforgettable destination.
