Travel to Japan

The beautiful thing about Japan is that you can always find something new. Whether your goal is to visit the ancient golden temples that grace this island nation or you just want to sample their cuisine and experience their culture, there is a hidden gem that always seems to be waiting for you.

Japan is also a dynamic country, offering you landscapes and vistas that seem futuristic. In the cities, you’ll find neon blazing on almost everything. Yet there is also a certain somber pride that you’ll find in this nation, with many restaurants and businesses featuring one product specialty online.

On one hand, Japan seems like a futuristic nation that has adopted to modern perspectives. On the other hand, you don’t have to travel very far outside of the cities to connect with the traditional cultures of this land. You can chant with monks, sleep on tatami mats, and learn how to make your own green tea before coming back to have world-class sushi at your hotel.

Japan is a highly volcanic nation as well, with a majority of the islands being mountainous. This creates iconic views, blanketed by cedar groves, that will take you to ancient shrines if you’re willing to put in the effort to hike to them. You can enjoy white-sand tropical beaches in the south, go skiing in the north, and get lost in a field of wildflowers along the way.

If you are looking to find peace, then Japan is the land where you will be granted this opportunity. Take it.

Best of Japan

X-mas Japanese Way

Holidays in Japan at Christmas have become very popular. Although Japan never recognized Christmas as a national holiday, it is catching on more as many people travel to the area to see the beautiful Christmas trees and the stores that go all out with Christmas lights and decorations.

In Japan, Christmas has become an event that was never celebrated as we do, but with the overwhelming attendance of Americans for Christmas holidays, the area has taken hold of the holiday excitement and now you will see many celebrations of Christmas, not only at the stores, but all around the area.

And then… New Year

Although Christmas is through the New Year, Japan removes Christmas decoration on the 26th and start preparing for the Japanese New Year, which you must stay and enjoy.

New Year’s is a great time to visit the ski resorts and treat the family to a New Year’s weekend with ski and warm, crackling fires at night by the fireplace. Make sure you enjoy a warm Japanese drink before bed to warm you and help you have a peaceful sleep. You will not forget this Christmas and New Year’s adventure.
