The Land of the Rising Sun, Japan is a fascinating country whose rich history and culture stretch back thousands of years. The old and new, past and future, tradition and innovation all blend together here like a cultural Galapagos.
Honshu Island in the centre of Japan holds most of the attractions that visitors to this incredible country want to see, including the hustle and bustle of modern day Tokyo with its gleaming skyscrapers sitting side by side with smoky old temples, and iconic snow-capped Mount Fuji standing majestically in the background. Further west are the ancient capital of Kyoto with its historic temples, peaceful gardens and mesmerising Geishas, and the industrial city of Osaka, known as the Kitchen of the Nation. Japan's famous snow monkeys can be found relaxing in the open air springs close to Yudanaka.
