Enchanting, exciting and enigmatic, Japan is a land that stimulates the senses. From ultra-modern mega-cities to ancient wonders, snow-capped mountains to palm-fringed beaches, this is a country of incredible contrasts. And yet, all of these wonders somehow manage to blend together seamlessly, providing a stunning showcase for the rising number of international travelers who are now choosing to explore Japan. Perched on the Pacific Rim, Japan is nicknamed the “The Land of the Rising Sun” due to the spectacular morning sunrise that emerges from the eastern horizon, over the Pacific Ocean.
There are four main islands, including Hokkaido in the north, Kyushu and Shikoku in the south, and the largest island, Honshu, which is home to the majority of Japan’s main metropolises and attractions. Further south, the tropical islands of Okinawa provide the perfect place for a spot of rest and relaxation.
Guests can immerse themselves in the high-tech hustle and bustle of Tokyo, Japan’s capital city and the world’s largest metropolitan area. Discover the 634-meter Tokyo Skytree, the world’s second tallest structure, Tsukiji, the world’s biggest fish market, or take the famous Shinkansen bullet train to other major cities such as Osaka and Nagoya. Alternatively, those seeking Japan’s cultural heart should head to the ancient capital of Kyoto, which contains approximately 2,000 temples and shrines, including 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Japan is a genuine treasure trove for travelers, where iconic images await around every corner. Visitors can explore magical winter wonders of the Japanese Alps, with their steaming hot springs, discover the bewitching beauty of the annual cherry blossom, or “sakura” season, uncover ancient castles and temples, or marvel at the majesty of Mount Fuji, Japan’s highest peak. And whichever part of the country you choose to visit, Japan’s exquisite cuisine provides a culinary experience that is unlike anywhere else on Earth.
