Japan is shrouded in mystery and fascination and has only recently emerged as an attractive and unforgettable holiday destination.
Interest in this wonderfully varied country has been lifted by growing awareness of the many aspects of Japanese culture and heritage, as well as the country’s prolific contribution to innovation and excellence,
This includes some of the most impressive buildings on the planet, including the tallest in the world, the awe-inspiring Tokyo Skytree (634m high). Of course, you may prefer to wander around Japan’s Imperial Palace (previously known as Edo Castle) with its much-photographed moat, tree-lined avenue and Meiji Shrine. This is just one of the impressive and moving shrines, temples and samurai castles to explore in Japan’s districts.
For those who prefer structures that nature has crafted in the Land of the Rising Sun, then feast your eyes on Mount Fuji just west of Tokyo, one of Asia’s biggest tourist magnets.
Japan has been referred to as the place to go for surprises and contrasts, and this includes holiday opportunities that are the opposite of each other. You could head to the reliable snow in ski resorts around Hokkaido or pack a bathing suit to soak up the sun on a subtropical beach in Okinawa.
