A Far East-Asian nation comprised of nearly 7,000 islands, Japan evokes a beguiling blend of images and icons as a result, but nothing compares to visiting the country first-hand. Marooned from the rest of the world for centuries, its culture evolved with few external influences, which is part of the reason why Japan is such a unique and intriguing travel destination today.
Visiting Japan on a luxury holiday is an unforgettable experience, packed with an enticing melange of private sightseeing tours, fine food, peaceful nature excursions and experiential activities that delve into Japanese culture.
You can easily hop from one city to the next on the famous bullet train, leaving exactly on the minute as is typical of Japanese punctuality, and soak up the verdant scenery along the way.
Japan is renowned for its distinctive seasons, with the dreamy cherry blossom taking centre stage in spring, and vibrant red and gold hues illuminating the landscapes come autumn. From the snow-covered mountains of Hokkaido in the north to the tropical seas and beaches of Okinawa in the south, Japan’s scenery is as diverse as its culture. In fact, it’s no cliché to say that you can marvel at a Shinto shrine one minute, then frenzied shopping streets the next, as the country’s dichotomy of modern and ancient is part of its allure.
