Ancient Japan

With serene gardens, sprawling luscious countryside and a culture that’s effortlessly peaceful there’s nothing that compares to exploring the stunning temples and tranquil pebbled peace gardens of ancient Japan.

One of the best times to visit if you’re wanting to take the most beautiful photographs is in the springtime when the Sakura takes place, the famous baby pink cherry blossom coats the country adding a gorgeous dusty pink coating to the trees.

Once you’ve been under the spell of ancient Japan, you’ll be hurled into the fast-paced life of modern Japan at breakneck speed. Home to the whirlwind city that is Tokyo, stand back as super speed trains whizz by and be dazzled by the array of neon lights and sky scraper buildings that dominate the city’s streets. As the city with the most Michelin starred restaurants in the world, Japan is a food lover’s delight so be sure to sample as many new dishes as possible whilst out there -sushi lovers rejoice! You’ll be amazed by how clean the city is, with virtually no litter and street crime is non-existent making it one of the safest cities to explore in the world.
