Experience Japan: sights, tours and activities

The Asian island of Japan impresses with its ancient sights and cultural traditions. Geishas, tea ceremonies, cutting-edge modern art and design, pagodas next to modern skyscrapers… this country will impress you, we promise!

Essentials in Japan

Tokyo: This sprawling metropolis is unlike any cities you know from back home. Modern skyscrapers are built next to centuries old temples and beautifully manicured gardens. Don’t miss the Imperial Palace and the Sensoji Temple while your’e here.

Kyoto: For a more traditional Japanese experience, Kyoto is an excellent choice. As the ancient capital, Kyoto is widely considered the culture heart of the country and is home to hundreds of Buddhist temples and zen gardens.

Mount Fuji: Fuji-san is the highest mountain in Japan. Hundreds of climbers ascend to the summit every year, but this 3,776m mount is not fit for amateur climbers. The best months for climbing are July and August.

Hotels and accommodation in Japan

Japan offers something totally different in terms of accommodation. Backpackers and budget travelers should stick to hostels but there are lots of unique Japanese hotels as well, like a ryokan.
