JAPAN

The richness of Japan’s history and culture is unmatched across the region yet the country upholds the standards of modernity to the highest degree and presents the perfect fusion of tradition and progress. 


The mystery of Japan is something which continues to unravel itself with every step you take – a walk along the Kyoto Temples and Gardens will perhaps remain one of the most enchanting experiences of your life. Walking into the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove is like stepping into another realm. The scenery and sounds are a world apart from what you are used to seeing or hearing. The Kyoto Gosho and SentoGosho will leave you mesmerized during the cherry blossom seasons which starts from late February and runs through the end of March. 


At the other end of the spectrum from Kyoto stands Tokyo. With a culture of it's own, which has taken hold globally with Kawaii, Anime and Manga known to even the least avid followers of popular culture. The nightlife of Shinjuku and West Tokyo has a unique spirit which cannot be found in any other city in the world. For some Tokyo is an experience like no other comparable with living in a real life video game or experiencing a different dimension altogether.

 Coming to Japan and missing out on the seafood? Don’t even think about making this mistake! Walk on the busy streets of Tsukiji Market and take in the aroma of a huge variety of seafood that is traded daily. The smells might baffle you and the sheer number of people might overwhelm youbut it is a trip definitely worth taking.


Away from the Tokyo cityscape, you can experience the spiritual side of Japan with a trip to Oku-no-in. This Buddhist cemetery allows an insight to the traditions of Japanese Buddhists and some of its unique architecture. The Buddhist temples in Japan such as the T┼Źdai-ji in Nara have an identity of their own. These are places unlike the ones you may witness in Southeast Asia, and this is where the notion of Japan’s uniqueness is reinforced. A local freelance tour guide can offer you exciting insight into the stories behind each of these temples or you can simply decide to have a taste of their uniqueness with every step you take. 


Japan offers something new every day – even an experience on public transit can be something different from the previous day. Check out these example itineraries where the best of Japan has been packed in!
