No matter what you most associate with this fascinating culture and country, a holiday in Japan will reveal some of Asia’s most intriguing and delightful highlights. A culture ruled by intricacies and etiquette, travellers can expect to experience the unique tension that exists between tradition and innovation, where flamboyant urban fashion sits comfortably alongside delicate Geisha dress and where ancient temples are housed happily beside vending machines selling anything from eggs to underwear.
