About Japan

Japan, a country for all seasons, offers something for everyone. Spring cherry blossoms, summer fireworks, autumn foliage, winter skiing…you will find it all and more in Japan. The cherry blossoms sweep across the country from Okinawa to Hokkaido and the Japanese talk about chasing the bloom northwards. Fall’s colors emerge in reverse, running south as temperatures cool. In summer, spectacular fireworks displays illuminate skies throughout the country. Hokkaido is a winter wonderland with plenty of ice and snow festivals, romantic glassworks in Otaru, and steam trains coated in winter’s blanket. You can surly enjoy the fun of winter in Japan.

Tokyo
Kyoto
Even Tokyo where neon lights cast futuristic shadows and digital billboards advertise the latest gadgets, even there you will find Japan’s classic character. Restaurants with exquisite handwritten menus, kimono-wearing shoppers searching for festival gifts, historic facades tucked amongst steel and glass. All of this comes together to create modern Japan. See where ancient opera still graces the stage, where flower festivals and tea ceremonies are enthusiastically passed down through the generations, and where the new world blends seamlessly into the old.
