Japan

Japan is an island east of China that has the most densely populated cities with towering skyscrapers. Jump aboard a bullet train that connect you to neighbouring cities such as Kyoto or Osaka and experience speeds you can only imagine. Tokyo is the nation’s capital, between the skyscrapers there are a number of Imperial Palaces, temples and shrines.

Japan technology and compact concept is prominent through the country, from the pod style hotels, to ultra-modern subway system and gadget shops.

Traditional Japan is still ever present throughout the country, from the small cafes to the occasional sumo wrestler walking the streets after his morning practice.

Mount Fuji, an active volcano about 4 hours west of Tokyo. The majestic mountain is often behind the clouds but on a clear day is breath-taking. Take a train to the base of Mount Fuji and hike the many trails.
