Don´t miss fabulous Japan!See more
With an archipelago consisting of more than 7,000 islands, Japan offers a variety of contrasting places for the Japanese traveler. The islands of Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku make up 97% of the country's land area and this is where most Japanese live. You can choose from the well-known cities of Tokyo and Kyoto, ski areas of Hokkaido and the fairly unknown beaches of Okinawa, an island chain stretching over a thousand kilometers from Kyushu to Taiwan.
At the cutting edge of modern technology and transport, Japan is an easy destination to navigate and travel around, when making use of the famous Shinkansen - or Japanese Bullet Train. These feats of modern technology traverse a network of lines across Honshu and Shikoku, at speeds up to 300 kilometers per hour. Linking most major hubs, the efficiency and the speed is put well into real terms when comparing the two and a half hour train journey between Tokyo and Kyoto with the seven-hour journey by road.
Your trip to Japan will be an unforgettable memory!
