Japan Tours, Travel and ActivitiesJAPAN Tours, Travel and Activities

Whether you end up taking photos of a reproduction Eiffel Tower, surfing an indoor wave, musing in a Zen temple, shacking up in a love hotel or bedding down in a capsule, you'll do best to come with an open mind and be prepared to be surprised.

Somewhere between the elegant formality and the candid, sometimes boisterous exchanges that take place over a few drinks, between the sanitized shopping malls and the unexpected rural festivals, everyone finds their own vision of Japan.

Kyoto Tours, Travel and Activities Kyoto Tours, Travel and Activities HIROSHIMA Tours, Travel and Activities

Miyajima (literally 'shrine island') has been celebrated as a sacred island and one of Japan's three most scenic views. It is most famous for Itsukushima Shrine, which, together with its large wooden torii (gate), stands in the ocean during high tide. Deer move around the island freely, and so do monkeys on top of Misen, the island's highest mountain.

The Peace Memorial Park was built to commemorate the dropping of the atomic bomb over Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 and to promote a peaceful world. It is located in the area around the atomic explosion's epicenter, and houses the Peace Memorial Museum and many other related monuments.

Famous for its down-to-earth citizens and hearty cuisine, Osaka combines historical and cultural attractions with all the delights of a Japanese urban phenomenon. At night Osaka is live-wired with flashing neon, beckoning with promises of tako-yaki (fried octopus ball), good times and lots of beer.

Waterfront developments are restoring Osaka's image as a port town and creating new attractions for tourists.

Sapporo is the fifth-largest city in Japan by population and the third-largest by geographic area. It is the capital of Hokkaido Prefecture.

The city is also home to the eponymous Sapporo Breweries.

Tokyo Tours, Travel and Activities Tokyo Tours, Travel and Activities TOKYO Tours, Travel and Activities

The sheer level of energy is the most striking aspect of Japan's capital city. Tokyo is a place where the urgent rhythms of consumer culture collide with the quieter moments that linger from older traditions. It's hectic madness leavened by the most Zen-like of calms.

While it's true the exciting vibe has a somewhat depressing flip side - shoebox housing estates and office blocks traversed by overhead expressways crowded with traffic - Tokyo remains a glittering example of the 'miracle' of post-WWII Japan.
