Japan is a land of icons: Mt Fuji; the neon expanse of Tokyo; world-class cuisine; traditional dress; beautiful imagery; cherry blossoms; and famous manga and cartoons. This hyper-modern country is a global economic hub and the source of some of the worlds best engineering and technology. It is also in touch with its traditional culture.
Major cities such as Toyko, Osaka and Kyoto offer contemporary architecture, theme parks, shopping districts, fine dining and urban gardens. Nature lovers might want to venture out to the spectacular landscapes of Mt Fuji and Lake Ashi, or any of the other 200 mountains for hiking, skiing or soaking in one of Japan’s famous hot springs.
You can also visit some of the country’s thousands of outlying islands: find reefs and marine life in the Ogasawara Archipelago; explore tall volcanic mountains on Rishiri; soak in natural springs among the cedars on Yakushima; or photograph the wildflower fields and natural landscapes on Hokkaido.
