When Do You Want To Go?

Japan

From its ancient yet futuristic cities to its snow-capped mountains, its tropical islands, and its rolling hills alive with spectacular cherry blossom, Japan is a country of breathtaking contrast.

Full of ancient temples and enthralling back streets fantastically juxtaposed against modern buildings and flashing lights, as if it were the most natural thing in the world, you’ll certainly never be bored in Japan’s famous cities. Eat sushi in Tokyo, explore the rich UNESCO-packed history of Kyoto and discover the charm of an authentic teahouse in Osaka. Spend the night in a ryokan for a truly traditional experience, sleeping on futons and tatami mats. Meditate with monks or learn how to whisk authentic bitter Matcha or powdered green tea.

Enjoy world-class skiing in Sapporo, walking trails and hot springs in Shikoku or subtropical beaches in Kyushu. Ride bullet trains out to the stunning Japanese countryside, explore spectacular national parks, pay respects at the war memorials in Hiroshima, appreciate the incredible art collections of Naoshima or marvel at the iconic and utterly spectacular Mount Fuji. From the splendour of a geisha dance to the beauty of a Zen rock garden, Japan will keep you coming back for more.

Japan’s natural wonders are aplenty thanks to its topography, a long, mountainous and highly volcanic archipelago. Over two-thirds of it are made up of mountains, with bubbling hot springs. In summer, enjoy excellent hikes up to soaring peaks. In the winter, all of its spectacular landscapes are snow-covered, with world-class skiing opportunities – there is something to suit everyone in the Land of the Rising Sun.
