Japan Travel

This is why a holiday in the country is such a rich and rewarding experience. From the natural delights of the cherry blossom season Japan via the fun fertility festival of Kanamara Matsuri or Japan Penis Festival, to skiing in Hokkaido and taking an onsen beneath the majestic Mount Fuji, there is so much to do in this most amazing country. That the land of the rising sun is not only about tradition and history can be witnessed during the Setouchi Triennale, one of the island’s biggest festivals of modern art. If you have missed the one in 2019, then pencil 2022 in your agenda – it only occurs every three years.

Japan Capital: Tokyo

The capital Tokyo is one of the most vibrant and throbbing cities in Asia. But even within this sprawling testament to modern man, you can still find space for your own yen in the wonderful Imperial Gardens.

Japan Food

However, it is the country’s food which perhaps stands high above all the other attractions on offer. From sushi to sashimi, udon and ramen noodles and teppanyaki grill, the choice seems endless.
