Welcome to Japan: a land of strikingly contrasting landscapes, rich history, cutting-edge cities, quirky trends, welcoming locals and truly brilliant cuisine. Quite unlike anywhere else on earth, this mesmerising country is made up of 6,852 islands – home to snow-capped mountains, natural hot springs, sandy beaches and lush forests. This makes for great outdoor adventures and some simply stunning scenery, dotted with countless UNESCO World Heritage Sites, temples, shrines and picturesque Japanese gardens.
Joining the country’s natural beauty and historical treasures, its cities are among the world’s most modern, dynamic and exciting. Tokyo, of course, heads this line up, home to the most Michelin stars in the world, leading fashion trends, towering skyscrapers and luxury shopping, though still maintaining a sense of traditional Japan through its many temples and authentic districts. Kyoto is Japan's cultural capital, known for its many temples, shrines and the famed Geisha district, while Hiroshima attracts visitors with its surrounding mountains and poignant memorials.
