Few places on the planet are more geared towards family fun than Japan. The country’s unique blend of hyper-modernity and deep-rooted traditions makes for a fascinating and charismatic ride that is guaranteed to maintain stimulation levels throughout.
Summing its country up in an often riotous yet sometimes subdued nutshell is the capital Tokyo where this journey kicks off. Here guests will explore Asakusa, the center of the city’s shitamachi (old town), before transporting into the future on a spaceship-inspired riverboat to the man-made island of Odaiba, home to an 18-metre tall robot statue. Quirks are not limited to Tokyo. In Yokohama, time can be spent at a railway museum and also at the Cup Noodle Museum, a celebration of instant noodles.
Japan can do serious extremely well too. The town of Kanazawa offers a wealth of colorful history; Hiroshima combines modernity with a tragic but instructive past while Kyoto, the ancient capital, is a riot of enchanting temples and windows into traditional culture.
