Japan Travel Tips

The Land of the Rising Sun is a country full of contrasts. Travelers visiting Japan can experience modern skylines, high-speed bullet trains, imperial palaces and rural monasteries—all in one trip. A trip to Japan is a journey of discovery, from iconic Tokyo and Hiroshima to the neon lights of Osaka.

Highlights not to miss include Kyoto’s fascinating castles, temples, and shrines; Mt Fuji, Japan’s tallest mountain, and most recognizable natural wonder. Matsumoto Castle is a delight in spring when bursts of cherry blossoms cover the grounds, and peaceful mountain villages like Gokayama and Shirakawago showcase Japan’s time-honored cultural traditions. Our expertly planned tours reveal all the highlights with insider experiences you won’t find anywhere else.
