Japan

Enigmatic and enchanting, bewitching and bewildering, Japan offers an adventure travel experience like no other.

Japan is a place where you can depart from a futuristic city aboard a space-age train in the morning, and that afternoon experience a tea ceremony served by kimono-clad hosts in a traditional inn with paper walls, deep in the countryside.

This contradiction between ancient and modern is just one of the many things that makes Japan such a fascinating country to visit.
