A colorful clash between modernity and ancient tradition
Japan is truly timeless, a place where ancient traditions are fused with modern life as if it were the most natural thing in the world.
If you travel around, this fascinating country offers numerous opportunities to connect with the country’s traditional culture. We suggest to spend the night in a ryokan (traditional Japanese inn), sleeping on futons and tatami mats. You can also meditate with monks or learn how to whisk bitter matcha (powdered green tea) into a froth. A Kyoto geisha dance to the spare beauty of a Zen rock garden shall be defintely part of you travel.
Japan is incredibly easy to get around: you can do a whole trip using its efficient public transport. The shinkansen (bullet train) network runs all the way from the Southern tip of Kyūshū (the southernmost of Japan’s major islands) up to Hokkaidō (its northernmost). You may also choose to get out of your comfort zone: we will suggest you the most interesting unbeaten tracks and interesting ideas to discover Japan.
