Japan


Taking a journey to Japan is to find excitement in a tranquil land. You may experience lavender festivals in Hokkaido, then at the next minute be travelling southbound to Okinawa to relax in turquoise waters. Along the way, a wealth of historical architecture is nestled in impressive natural scenery. Fascinating museums and thrilling theme parks stand alongside sophisticated commercial complexes, awaiting your discovery. Japan is a dreamland which you would visit again and again, but always feel you have not thoroughly seen it all.
