Japan’s efficient bullet train network makes it easy to travel across the main islands. En route, you can compare big contrast high-tech 12 million people city of Tokyo, one of the largest cities in the world with cultural Kyoto, home to 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites, over 1,600 Buddhist temples and 400 Shinto shrines. Just 50km from Tokyo, Kamakura is a world away from the lights and action of Japan’s buzzing capital. In the hot spring retreat of Hakone, admire views of iconic Mount Fuji during an aerial tram ride or lake cruise. On foot, you might decide to discover the gardens of Kanazawa or the trails of the pine-covered Japanese Alps. Head to the northern island of Hokkaido for wild national parks, including the wetlands of Kushiro and Lake Toya. To the southern most, you’ll see the subtropical island chain of Okinawa with its coral reefs and white-sand beaches.
