Cultural Holidays in Japan


Japan Cultural Holidays

Efficient, beautiful, structured, contrasting and mysterious: these are all adjectives that could be used to describe the unique culture of Japan. It is a fascinating blend of old and new, a place where ancient culture combines with cutting-edge technology.

Away from the excitement of cities such as Osaka and stunning Kyoto, this is a country of great natural beauty too, from the Japanese Alps of Central Honshu to iconic Mout Fuji. Transport in Japan is exceptionally efficient, especially the trains (the best way to travel), and its cuisine is now highly fashionable. All of this is set against a backdrop of spas, temples, snow monkeys and, in sakura season, the ubiquitous cherry blossom.
