Situated off the east coast of the Asian mainland, Japan is a master of modernity and a steward of tradition. Its densely-populated cities ooze culture, creativity and neon-coloured lights, while sacred wildernesses and soaring mountains are flecked with ancient temples. Over the centuries, Japan has marched to its own beat, often isolating itself from western ways. Modern-day Japan, however, has come to reveal its unique character to the world as a global leader in technological, architectural and culinary innovation.
From laid-back Osaka with its eclectic food scene to traditional Kyoto with its lantern-lit cafes and captivating geisha district, this is a country that has something to thrill even the most seasoned traveller. When it comes to the finer things in life, Japan serves up slick design, bullet trains, Michelin-starred restaurants and five-star hotels. Considering its size, this archipelago nation lays claim to an impressive list of accolades. An exceptionally high standard of living means that the Japanese enjoy an advanced educational system and the planet’s highest life expectancy.
