Japan

Last Updated: 11 November 2017
Japan has everything. It is a land of ancient shrines and temples, monasteries and castles, mountains, waterfalls, gardens and parks, bridges and forests, lovely sandy beaches, and cherry blossoms in the spring. On the exterior Japan appears to be very modern but beneath it all is a country swathed in ancient culture and tradition.

Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital has over one thousand temples and shrines. It also boasts Zen Gardens and tranquil public parks. Monasteries offer overnight accommodation so that visitors can experience monastic life. Japan’s old cities offer an experience quite different to those of Europe. Samurai houses and Geisha teahouses are unique to Japan.
