Japan

Majesty of Mt. Fuji

Japan has been intriguing visitors for centuries. With the upcoming Olympics in 2020, there has never been a better time to go. Start in Tokyo, a cutting-edge capital, and a city of vast contrasts. Despite its love affair with manga pop, high-tech trends, and fashion, below the surface, it is deeply rooted in tradition. Here you’ll see the heart of the hyperactive city lies the serene Imperial Palace, the steadfast link to its historical past. Next head to the ancient capital of Kyoto, full of historic temples, tea houses and geisha tradition. Take a relaxing side trip through the countryside to the coastline at Ago Bay, famous for its pearl oysters. Meet Japan’s legendary female Ama divers, as they free dive for pearls. Then unwind in the famous onsen hot springs. Move on to Osaka, one of the culinary capitals of the world. Be prepared to “eat til you drop” here, or as the locals call it kuidaore.

      when to go

      Any season is a good time to visit Japan. There is great cultural appreciation for the changing seasons, as well. Many visitors enjoy spring and fall, when skies are clear and temperatures are comfortable. Kyoto and Osaka are especially crowded during cherry blossom season (late March to early April) and fall foliage (mid-November to early December), so plan ahead. Summertime is considered peak tourist season. Japan’s mountains make it a great skiing destination during the winter. It’s also a good time to appreciate the famous onsen hot springs.
