It’s true, Japan is a bit of a flirt. She lures you in with promises of crazy technology, friendly people and of course delicious food.
Next minute, she’s totally transcended everything you ever imagined.
East meets west is an understatement – Japan is neither. It’s where a city really isn’t ‘just another city’, but a microcosm of amazing culture, each one outdoing the last.
So enjoy 112 seconds of this melting pot of insanely awesome everything (from bowing deer in Nara to okonomiyaki in Hiroshima).
