MORE INFO ABOUT JAPAN
Strikingly modern, steadfastly traditional and always surprising – Japan should be a must on everyone’s bucket list. The cities speak for themselves – cool, cutting-edge and increasingly accessible, while beyond the bright lights you’ll find natural beauty that’s every bit as awe-inspiring.
It can be head-spinning at first, so arriving into a smaller city such as Osaka, with ancient shrines, lip-smacking street food and neon-lit nightlife, is the ideal starting point. From here, speed across the countryside on an iconic Shinkansen bullet train to Hiroshima, where you can learn about its harrowing recent history, and roam with tame deer on an out-of-this-world island.
