A nation of islands in East Asia, Japan is home to breathtakingly beautiful landscapes and vibrant cities – from the bright lights of the cosmopolitan capital, Tokyo, to the temple-studded Kyoto, considered by many to be the cultural heart of the country. Soak up the dreamy scenery of national parks and mist-clad forests, marvel at the iconic Mount Fuji and experience hot springs and sparkling beaches on the Noto Peninsula. Japan is the perfect escape for those in search of heaps of culture and postcard-worthy scenery.
