REASONS TO LOVE JAPAN




An avant-garde capital that pulsates with quirky cosplayers and raucous karaoke bars, hovering trains that rocket through awe-inspiring countryside, engrossing traditions, and an obsession with etiquette – what’s not to love?

FAST TRAINS

When Japan launched the shinkansen in 1964, they left the rest of the world in the dust. Silently speeding at 200 mph (320km/h), you’ll feel as if you’re already in the future.

STAYING IN A RYOKAN

These guesthouses provide the ultimate Japanese experience. Don a yukata (kimono), indulge in a communal bath and savour a home-cooked meal, washed down with plenty of sake

CELEBRATING OTAKU

Once an offensive term for a super fan, more and more people are calling themselves otaku. Explore the world of manga, anime, and cosplay in Tokyo’s Harajuku district


RIOTOUS FESTIVALS

Don’t let its introvert reputation fool you – Japan hosts some raucous celebrations. Expect loin-cloth-clad revellers, sumo wrestlers, and tantalizing scents drifting from stalls .

FANTASTICAL CASTLES

 From the imposing fortresses of the Warring States Period, such as Kumamoto Castle , to Himeji-jo’s graceful donjon , Japan’s castles seem straight out of a fairy tale

SIPPING SAKE

Made from a large-grain rice and koji (yeast), sake gets its rich flavor from its unique fermentation process. Hot in winter, or cold in summer, it’s the perfect thirst quencher

HISTORIC KYOTO

 With 1,600 Buddhist temples and more UNESCO-listed World Heritage Sites than any other city on earth, the majestic city of Kyoto is an absolute must for any culture vulture

CHERRY BLOSSOM SEASON

Each spring, as the cherry blossom front sweeps northwards, the Japanese population indulges in one of its all-time favorite pastimes: hanami – picnicking under blooms


ZEN GARDENS

Some think that the rocks represent islands, while others believe that they symbolize emotional obstacles. Search for your own meaning in these mysterious gardens

RELAXING IN AN ONSEN

As one of the most active volcanic regions in the world, in Japan, onsen are everywhere you look. Wash away your troubles in one of these bubbling pools

SAVORING SUSHI

 You’ll find this dish on the menu at swanky Michelin-starred eateries and neighborhood dives. Get your chopsticks at the ready to sample sushi at its most authentic

KARAOKE NIGHTS

Everyone from giggling teens to suit-clad businessmen belt out tunes in soundproof booths. Grab your earplugs, have your song at the ready, and enjoy the ultimate singalong
