Japan

Activities

Japan remains an exciting blend of the ancient and modern, with villages steeped in centuries-old traditions in close proximity to the glimmering skyscrapers and flashing neon lights of futuristic cities. Japanese's cultural heritages include everything from geishas, quaint traditional tea shops and gardens to sushi, sake, and Shinto shrines and these icons are the cornerstone of its many attractions and activities. Visit the former capital of Kyoto, the home of a Women’s Association member to learn about a traditional pastime such as calligraphy or explore the city’s cobbled streets on an evening tour for a glimpse of a Geisha. Tokyo meanwhile, is a complete contrast, and an early morning trip to Tsujiki, the world’s biggest fish market, can be followed by a visit to the ornate Meiji Jingu shrine. Further afield, Japan’s myriad of national parks and mountain ranges, such as Hakone National Park, home to snow-capped Mount Fuji offers unique experience to walking and hiking lovers.
