JAPAN - ENDLESS DISCOVERY

When you think of Japan, your mind fills with all sorts of images of ancient traditions, beautiful landscapes and fascinating culture.

Although the Japanese past is rich in events and interesting history, today’s Japan is just as fascinating with cutting edge technology and wonderful architecture, whilst still maintaining the country’s traditions.

Whether you want to experience food like you’ve never tasted (or seen!) or you want to go shopping in some of the world’s best shopping areas, Japan is the place to visit!  Japan is famous for its temples and shrines - you could spend weeks in cities such as Kyoto or Nara feasting your eyes on architectural marvels and historic monuments.

If culture is more to your taste, you can’t get much better than Japan’s colourful and rich heritage including wonderful kabuki (Japanese performing arts) and traditional geisha. At Japan National Tourism Organisation, you will find all the information you need to plan your perfect holiday to Japan.
