Japan Hotels and Travel Guide

Japan Travel Information

Flanking the eastern coast of the Asian mainland for more than 1,800 miles, Japan – land of contrasts, celebrated culture and electronic wizardry – is the ideal place to explore and celebrate.

Even though the country is an economic powerhouse Japan has held on to its deep cultural heritage and the result is the ultra-modern sitting next to the historic; the state-of-the-art contrasting with the historic. Perhaps nowhere else in the world does this anomaly exist quite so blatantly.

Its distinctive cuisine sets it apart, its literature remains unique and Japanese fashion and popular music are both trendsetters for the rest of Asia. Come and discover the real Japan.
