Japan Activities

Japan is a country of ultra-modern skyscrapers and ancient, tranquil shrines sometimes in the same square mile. The sheer number of things to see and do can be overwhelming to a first time visitor, but the nations high-speed bullet train routes mean travelers arent limited to just one destination, and day trips and multi-city itineraries are a popular way to get the most out of a Japanese vacation.

At 9 million residents and counting, Tokyo is Japans largest city, and its easy to spend your entire vacation seeing all it has to offer, from the fashionable crowds of Shibuya and the temples of Asakusa to the luxury storefronts of Ginza.

Osaka is Japans second largest city, but when it comes to food, its definitely the frontrunner. This friendly port is close to Kyoto, making it a convenient way to experience the charms of both destinations.

Kyoto is an ancient city where traditions (and buildings) have been preserved for hundreds of years. Its the perfect place to sightsee, full of beautiful gardens and historic attractions.

Mt. Fuji rises in the distance, the perfect backdrop for the quiet town of Hakone. Soak in the tranquility of this hot springs destination, or travel on to the awe-inspiring mountain itself.
