Hotels run by robots, talking toilets, the world’s fastest trains and spotlessly clean streets. In many ways, Japan is already living in the future.
But what’s most fascinating about the Land of the Rising Sun is that while it is leading the way in the world of tech, it still has one foot firmly cemented in its age-old traditions. Holidays in Japan will teach you it’s just as thrilling to softly wander hushed shrines and serene gardens as it is to explore neon-lit city streets.
Explore the organised chaos of Tokyo, where towering skyscrapers sit beside legendary landmarks, like the moated Imperial Palace and Meiji Shrine. In the ancient capital of Kyoto, attend a tea ceremony and learn about geisha and samurai culture. Pause for a moment of reflection in Hiroshima at the Atomic Bomb Museum. Cheer at a sumo wrestling match. Sleep and feast in a ryokan (authentic Japanese inn). Bathe in a steaming onsen (hot spring). Gaze out at Mt Fuji. And glide from place to place in complete comfort on the impressive Shinkansen (bullet train).View all holidays to Japan
