Discover the beguiling contrasts of Japan
Japan is a country of juxtapositions. And its pleasures lie within the spaces between. The solidity of ancient temples is framed by delicate blossoms. The ultra-modern glass facades of skyscrapers shadow ornately decorated, ancient shrines. Your bullet train glides effortlessly to cities where geishas continue to shuffle.
In many ways, Japan is at once delightfully archaic and mind-bogglingly cutting edge. Japan lays claim to 200,000 years of history and in last three decades, it has undergone a technological revolution.
Tokyo showcases Japan’s technological modernity. Its bright lights, towering skyscrapers and hectic streets need no introduction. Osaka is the kitchen of the nation: you can sample the country's delicious and varied cuisine here. Kyoto is the cultural capital: grand palaces, historic shrines, wonderful gardens and kimono-clad geisha grace its streets. The 6,800 islands of Japan contain beautiful countryside, with highlights including Mount Fuji and the paradise that is Okinawa.
Let our highly qualified team in Japan help you understand an exotic and mesmerising place. We’ll escort you to a Noh Theatre performance, and lay on an acclaimed expert to talk you through it.
