Explore the turbulent history of Japan, from the Empire to the shogunate.
Stroll through the streets of Japan’s biggest cities, full of historic buildings, unique clubs, museums and shrines, as well as culinary adventures.
Japan’s National Parks offer lots of beautiful nature with an abundance of scenic spots and fascinating sights.
Here you can find a number of interesting model courses for you to choose your favorite activity, such as hiking, mountain climbing, or taking a ride by car, ship, or bicycle.
Whether you stay a week or two weeks, we recommend getting the JR Pass. This is like a magical golden ticket that gives you unlimited JR train rides (bullet train too) to anywhere around Japan. Not all things are free (for example, non JR trains as well as most subways), but if you take three rides on the Shinkansen that will usually make it worthwhile. You can get a JR Pass at jrpass.com. Just be sure to take into account the time change when you schedule your ticket dates. Going to Japan involves traveling through both space and time.
