Japan is an island nation in the Pacific Ocean with high-rise-filled cities, imperial palaces, mountainous national parks and thousands of shrines and temples. Tokyo, the crowded capital, is known for its neon skyscrapers and pop culture. In contrast, Kyoto offers Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, gardens and cherry blossoms. Sushi, the national dish, is served everywhere from casual pubs to gourmet restaurants.

How to Reach

Japan is very well connected with the rest of the world, so getting to the country isn’t a problem as such. A number of international airlines regularly fly circuits linking Japan to Europe, Asia, North America and other destinations. Japan’s main international airport is Narita International, 80 km from Tokyo; there are other international airports too, at Osaka, Kyushu and Sapporo, but the volume of traffic handled by these is much less than Narita.
