From the ever-popular Tokyo Disneyland to the city’s Kabukiza Theatre, Tokyo is at once an arts centre and a worldwide attraction. Boasting Asia’s biggest fish market (itself a massive attraction) as well as ancient Shinto and Buddhist shrines, commerce and spirituality exist side by side in this burgeoning city.
Kyoto is the place to go for a large dose of Japanese culture while Nagoya is perhaps the most perfect balance of the old and new Japan, having rebuilt sensationally in the aftermath of World War II. Nara is home to many UNESCO World Heritage Sites while Osaka has much more going for it than the oft-mentioned Universal Studios. Enjoy the contrasts and twists and turns that this country offers its visitors.
