Reasons to Visit Japan

Japan is a must see destination for the traveler that is rich in unique traditional culture and historical ambience. The following are some of my favourite reasons for visiting Japan.

Natural Beauty

 Japan is made up mostly of mountains and is surrounded by the sea. This spectacular landscape offers a bevy of dramatic views overlooking lush mountains, valleys, seascapes, waterfalls, autumn foliage and white powder snow just to mention a few.

Cultural Heritage

Japan is a country where the past meets the future. Japan has a traditional culture that stretches back millennia, and is a country of contrasts with beautiful temples and gardens along with ultra modern and high tech cities.

Culinary Excellence

Japanese cuisine is renowned for its emphasis on fresh, seasonal ingredients. Japanese cuisine is a kaleidoscope of diversity ranging from well known sushi, tempura and ramen noodles to the full course dinners called kaiseki. Travelling within Japan will lead you to discover the local specialities of each region.

Cool Japan

Japan is the land of high tech x culture x art, the birth place of exciting unique technologies, street fashion and sub-cultures rich in vitality. Japan is home to anime, manga and video games. Japan has a fascinating harmony between the old and the new.

Experience some of the finest powder snow and ski resorts in the world in Hokkaido, Nagano and Niigata. Summer is the time for rafting, canoeing and trekking in the Japan Alps, or just dancing with the locals at festivals around Japan.

These are just a few of things that keep me coming back to Japan for more.

There are many more reasons out there for visiting Japan, so why don’t you tell us yours.
