Within moments of arriving in Japan, you’ll find any old excuse to return again and again.

The futuristic skyscrapers towering over Tokyo are impossible to miss, and the lively karaoke bars down below are the go-to spot for a good time. But once you step away from the hustle of the major cities lies a whole new world. A blissful night spent at a traditional ryokan or relaxing in an onsen is one of the many experiences you can’t miss.

Traditional sake barrels
