This relatively small Asian country boasts a rich and fascinating history that dates back thousands of years and today’s Japan is just as fascinating with cutting edge technology and astonishing architecture, whilst still maintaining the country’s traditions. Visitors can be immersed in Japanese history and culture one day and get a glimpse of the future through technological developments the next. High-speed trains whisk you from one end of the country to another with impressive punctuality. In addition, Japan has one of the world’s lowest crime rates which makes it ideal for travelers.
Whether you want to go shopping in some of the world’s best shopping areas or you want to experience food like you’ve never tasted (or seen!), Japan is the place to visit! Japan is famous for its temples and shrines - you could spend weeks in cities such as Kyoto 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).
Much of this rich tradition has, despite wars and natural devastation, been preserved (or rebuilt), and these days, a visit to Japan is a memorable adventure.
