Japan’s unique blend of modernity and history tends to hit a travel sweet spot. Isolated from the rest of the world for many centuries, the country fostered intensely strong cultural traditions. More recently, however, Japan has emerged a world leader in fashion, technology, cuisine and other fields. These contrasts make for an enthralling visitor experience. This journey takes in all these aspects, with a particular emphasis on the nation’s vibrant spiritual fabric. The adventure commences in Tokyo, the capital, where geisha districts, temples and legendary shrines complement buzzing shopping hubs like Omotesando. After a pitstop in the resort of Yamanouchi – famous for its onsen (healing hot springs) – guests will proceed to Kyoto, the former capital, home to over 2000 temples and shrines. Another spiritual hub is temple-rich Koyasan, a designated UNESCO World Heritage site. The journey ends in the energetic city of Osaka where fun-loving locals and a fabulous culinary scene make for a fun cultural experience.
