Visit Japan

Posted on February 28, 2015 at 3:10 pm

On arriving for the first time, visitors to the enigmatic islands of Japan can feel like they have landed on another planet. There’s an otherworldly mix of old and new and the culture and traditions of Japan can seem strange to new comers. Whether you’re after culture, sightseeing or amazing food, a two week minimum trip is a must to get a flavour of Japan.
The futuristic capital city of Tokyo is a must, with loads to see and do and stunning views of iconic Mt. Fuji. The old capital Kyoto has some beautiful shrines and temples juxtaposed with stylish modern architecture. Make sure to research what you want to see before you go so you don’t miss anything. Top attractions include Sumo matches, Kabuki theatre, a wealth of shrines and incredible gardens, delicious cuisine like sushi and sashimi, beautifully preserved Edo era towns…the list is endless. A stay at a Ryokan, a traditional Japanese inn, is also not to be missed. It’s worth noting that most establishments are cash only and cash machines are not always readily available. Make sure to research local customs and manners before your trip.
