Founded nearly 2,700 years ago, the nation of Japan has a formidable gastronomic reputation and is also known for its technological prowess, bustling skyscraper cities and dazzling mountains. In fact, unlike many other locations in the world, slurping one's food here is actually an act of good manners and an indication that the food being eaten must be good.
Japan is rooted in ancient tradition and yet simultaneously flourishes as one of the most modern countries in the world. This intertwining of the old and the new makes Japan truly fascinating. One moment you are relaxing in the tranquillity of a sun-drenched woodland, and the next, you are wandering through the dazzling neon lights of a street in Tokyo. Whatever sort of break you are looking for, holidays to Japan provide an incredible spectrum of experiences for the adventurous traveller.
