Holiday To Japan

Japan is home to two main religions, Buddhism and Shinto.  Turn a corner in a busy city and come across a beautiful wooden Shinto temple with a brightly painted torri gate in front of it.  Shinto has many different symbols to observe, for instance paper in the shape of lightning bolts, is used to symbolize purification.  Head to Nara to witness the largest collection of Buddhist statues in Japan.

The symbol of Japan, Mount Fuji, is a sight to behold.  This iconic mountain is the tallest in the country, and also an active volcano.  Travel to one of Tokyo’s five lakes for views towards the mountain.

Holiday To Japan

Taste different foods, sit at a Sushi Bar in a Tokyo market or enjoy tempura at an exclusive Kyoto restaurant.  Japan is all about different food trends, bubble tea to waffles, you will witness queues of people trying to get into the current trending place to eat. They are also amazing at emulating food from other countries from pizza to tacos! You will always find something delicious to eat here.

Travel at High Speed

Travelling by high speed Shinkansen (bullet train) is a must do experience, you are connected to all the major cities and will be whizzing through the Japanese countryside, at speeds of up to 320 km/h.  The level of service in Japan is out of this world, with extremely punctual trains that depart on time, to the second.

Japan is made up of islands.  For a first time visit we recommend keeping to the main island of Honshu. (Tokyo, Kyoto etc).  For a return visit to Japan there are lots of other islands to explore! Shikohu: beautiful & rural, Kyushu: Ancient forests & active volcanoes, Okinawa: sub tropical beaches & scuba diving, Hokkaido: off the beaten track, great skiing.
