Japan is full of culture and contrasts. It is a country where tradition and progress stand side by side to form a fascinating mosaic. Contemporary high-rise buildings, trendy shopping districts and buzzing nightlife contrast with an abundance of serene temples and shrines. Explore traditional sites such as the Golden Pavillion in Kyoto, the Imperial palace plaza in Tokyo or the historical city of Hiroshima.

High-speed Bullet trains will transport you from city to city through interesting and scenic countryside and on arrival, you will be able to immerse yourself in a traditional culture through attending age-old tea ceremonies or perhaps attending a performance of Kabuki, the ancient form of drama.

Nature has also blessed Japan through cherry blossoms in the spring and startling arrays of colours in the fall. Enjoy your surroundings in Hakone national park while viewing Mt Fuji.

If you really want to immerse yourself in Japanese culture, consider taking a dip in a hot spring known as an Onsan or stay at a traditional Japanese Inn called a Ryokan. Or perhaps you could attend a sporting event such as Sumo wrestling or a baseball game, two strong passions of the Japanese.
