The land of the rising sun, where the past meets the future, where ancient gods jostle for attention with cutting edge technology, and where centuries-old temples sit serenely in the middle of bustling cities, a luxury Japan vacation is an unforgettable experience. Famed as the home of karaoke, sushi and cherry blossoms, Japan has much more up its sleeve besides, and continues to baffle and delight visitors in equal measure.
From the ancient temples of Kyoto to the soaring, neon-blanketed skyscrapers of Tokyo, a luxury vacation to Japan is a journey through time. Foodies in particular are in for a treat: sushi and miso soup are well known to the wider world, and for good reason, but you’ll also love discovering such mouthwatering treats as sabu sabu, teppanyaki and the ancient art (and multicourse extravaganza) that is kaiseki. Osaka, in particular, is a must visit – one of the culinary capitals not only of Japan, but of the world – while Tokyo makes its own case for that crown, boasting the world’s longest list of Michelin-starred restaurants.
From the bustle of the cities to the serene slopes of Hakone and the might of Mount Fuji and the Japanese Alps, Japan has something to offer.
