Sacred Mount Fuji, a cone-shaped volcano, and the Japanese Alps are the pride of this land. Flying into this country you will likely land at Narita, Haneda, Kansai or the Chubu Centrair international airports.

Tokyo has been the seat of government since 1603 and is also the seat of the Emperor of Japan. While it is one of the most densely populated cities located on the southeastern side of Honshu Island, it still has a rich variety of attractive green spaces, historic temples and museums to visit. This prolific city also offers tourists abundant choices for entertainment, shopping, culture and fine dining. And if you want to experience true Japanese culture, visit Yokohama just about 30 minutes from Tokyo. Slipping into a traditional kimono, tasting authentic Japanese cuisines, learning the art of origami, visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, soaking in a natural hot spring and staying at a traditional Japanese accommodation should be high on your list when discovering this unique country.
