I’m fascinated with the contrasts of Japan, from the futuristic cities where karaoke is king to the serene and meticulously landscaped gardens. I love the garb of the extravagant Harajuku girls of Tokyo to the exquisitely painted Geisha. Japan really does have something for everyone; snow-capped volcanoes, fish markets, peaceful gardens and pilgrimage walks, neon cityscapes and a wealth of art and history to uncover.
Japan is an incredible mix of past and present, where you can explore the exciting modern neon lights of Tokyo, then board the thrilling high-speed bullet train ‘on time’ to see the ancient wonders of Kyoto. In Japan, you can savour the delicate flavours of sushi and sake, enjoy the timeless arts of samurai and sumo and marvel at the exquisite beauty of cherry blossoms and geishas. Japan really has it all for me – I can’t wait to go back again and discover more!
