Known as the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’, Japan is an island nation located in the Pacific Ocean. This truly unique country offers a stunning blend of ultra-modern, alongside traditional ancient culture. There really is so much to see and do year-round, from the neon lights of the bustling capital Tokyo, to the iconic snow-capped Mount Fuji (the highest peak in the country), an abundance of imperial palaces, shrines and temples. March and April are the perfect months to visit, as the start of spring is signalled by the blooming of the cherry blossom. Travelling around the country on the futuristic high speed bullet trains will certainly allow you to pack more into your trip.
